Anyone who does download YDL from us please consider to make a small contribution to help pay for our bandwidth... its quite a hefty download if you get it all.

@All

I know this is too much to ask and I have this huge feeling I know the answer would be "No" with lots "are you insane comments here and there" but, can this work..oh God * stiffles a giggle *can it work on..oh God..I cannot help it * goes into severe giggle, takes a deep breath then exhales * Ok, phew, I am ok now. But can it work on an Amiga 1200?

There was a PPC Linux implementation for the classics - APUS, IIRC.
Not sure if there's a 68k Linux, but anything is possible...

I'd highly doubt whether this package would work on anything other than an A1, due to the hardware setup - drivers, etc.

It says install on a different HD ... do they mean different partition or really another HD? And when i have both OS4 and Linux on my machine how do I choose between them ? And what OS should be installed first or isn't that important ?

Not tried with this one yet, but I think it has be a physically different HDD, otherwise it'll do nasty things to the OS4 partion, I think (I really don't know what I'm talking about so you really should ignore me).


I think you can set up the boot argument to start up from a secondary hard drive, diskboot 100000 3:1 1, that sort of thing. But see my warning above!

Another harddrive.
The reason is that the YDL-installer does not support RDB, only MBR.
So it will most propably destroy your OS4 installation.

The exact same way you boot a UBoot-upgrade cd.

The most simple way is to halt UBoot before it starts loading SLB, and issue "diskboot 500000 x:y followed by bootm"

The installation manual is from the time berore µA1, but should work nevertheless, it is written by none less than Bill Mueller.

A completely different HD. It is also best that the YDL HD is
the 1st in the system. Reason; You can't split how a HD is low level
formatted, RDB or MBR, and YDL will not install on RDB.

Also, I do not know if the now available, THANKS to all concerened, YDL
is adjusted to work on the GX processor, but it will work if modified.
Sadly I am presently 1400 mi. away from my A1s so cannot help much in
that area. However, if you care to try YDL on a GX, I suggest you download
it and burn it off to CDs, make a donation, and wait (probably)
another month or two. Unless another can make the necessary mods to the
kernels (Someone say Yes, please). I do have it working on my uA1-c GX.

@Mechanic

The 2.4.26 kernel from sf.net should work too, I've understood it supports GX.

Yes, It does work, but not for installation. I had to take apart the
install kernel and add the GX processor. I had it posted on my old, now
gone, web site earlier this year. Wish I had my A1s here.

I'd suggest using bit torrent for a file that size. Should save you some bandwidth.

There are actually several 68k Linuxs for the Amiga...

Not sure WHY, though...

Hi  tomazkid,
You've been through linux stuff, but how does YDL compare to Debian? Isn't YDL a variation of RedHat adapted to Terron systems? I use Debian because of fine support from Ross Vumbaca! I guess I'm asking if there's something about YDL that goes with the AmigaOne that I'm unaware of. I'm kind of trying to find some rational for that size of download, assembly & setup and time! Debian 'Sarge' kind of fills all the linux areas that this common user!

Yes, YDL3 is a standalone Red Hat clone, dunno much about YDL4.
You can compare Red Hat against Debian on the x86, and you get the picture.

I ran Debian and YDL on the A1 for a while, now only Debian is left.
What you prefer, it just a matter of taste.
If Debian works fine, stick with it,
YDL is an alternative distro for the A1, for those who want it, and it is still developed
unlike SusePPC.

I'm confused.

I've just read the installation pdf, and it has instructions for a MAI Teron motherboard, not an AmigaONE.

The AmigaOne is a MAI board with a special ROM chip, or something
like that. You will also need a special instruction to crank-up
Mozilla. Seek help in the Linux forum.
