Well, you are installing on 20+-year-old hardware. I don't think it's fair
to assume that everything works out-of-the-box and is straight-forward
to set up. We are all know this port needs work.

Well, yes, ADB support is currently broken as you have heard. So, either
you look into fixing it yourself or you install a much older version
of Debian. I don't think you can anyone else to jump in right now and
fix the driver for you.

I don't know when ADB support broke. I have an m68k Mac myself, but I
normally run Linux on Amigas or virtual Ataris. On my Centris 650, ADB
support is working fine with the 3.16 stock kernel in any case.
