Quick (hopefully simple) question: How do you tell the difference
between an Amiga and a Mac (both ppc machines) in a script ?
I need to distinguish them in picking keyboards correctly in
the console packages.
The Amiga you're talking about is the classic with 680x0 or PPC
I'm currently busy on a kernel for the AmigaOne with PPC 750CXe, 750FX
or 7445 processors. Just so you know, there'll be another Amiga platform
pretty soon. Totally incompatible hardware-wise to the classic series.
We use PPCBoot (now UBoot?)
There'll be a LOT of people running Debian on these babies pretty soon.
(our main OS isn't ready, and some hundred developers will have hardware
within a week or two. End user release aimed at the Linux crowd is
before christmas, both in G3 and G4 versions)
