I was wondering how you are supposed to run Debian inside official

BasiliskII has no MMU support as official UAE. Are you aware of a
patch or a project to do so?

What you can do is run Debian inside ARAnyM, the Atari emulator,
which has a well done MMU implementation.

To my mind, it is a great idea to use an emulator, and it suppresses
gcc cross-compiling issues with floating point. Using an emulator
*DOES NOT* mean the architecture is dead, since some people keep on
using it, and m68k hardware is still sold nowadays.

It is rather bold to compile stuff on a m68k at an average 40
MHz... That machine is made to be used -- I mean, in a user perspective
-- and not to compile for hours/days huge software from source.

By the way, using the term "Second-Class Citizens" to define people
who use that aged architecture is not fitting at all the concept of
humanity to others which resides in Debian (and in Ubuntu too). By
doing so, it classifies people in social classes: a group which is the
valuable "First-Class Citizens" and another composed of uninteresting
worthless dropouts who can go dying on scc.debian.org... Why not
using another name?

BOFH excuse #348: We're on Token Ring, and it looks like the token
got loose.
