HOME -> LINUX -> LINUX-PMAC
Linux is installed on a 2.5 GByte partition together with 0.5 GByte for swap. Besides that I've got a 350 MByte partition holding the remains from my first LinuxPPC installation, so that I have something to boot into, if I ever misconfigure my main Linux to the point that it won't boot anymore. There is a 0.5 GByte partition in use for MacOS 8.6 and three 0.5 GByte and one 1 GByte partitions which are currently not used.
I've modified the directory structure to
be rather simple. I also simplified the boot process and configuration.
I wanted all configuration files in
/etc and as few as possible of them.
I upgraded the kernel to the most recent 2.2.13. and I installed myself the software I felt I needed.
I use BootX with these arguments
init=/usr/bin/init video=atyfb:vmode:14,cmode:32 adb_buttons=65,69 hda=autotune
to start up Linux. I needed to put
init= because my init is not
in one of the places which are searched by the kernel. The buttons 65 and 69
correspond to the keypad . and + keys, which are activated using the fn key.
