Awhile ago I tried getting linux on my 270c
... with little luck...
Recently, NetBSD has proved to be much more fruitful. I followed the guide here
and now have a working, bootable install on my 270c. (Only took three days for the duo to do the install
However, I have a few questions:
Is there a way to get the floppy drive to work with a floppy microdock?
Is there a way to get an ethernet microdock working? (Apparently something with if_netdock_nubus.c )
I don't have enough HDD space right now to install X, but does anyone know if the Duo's video hardware has been decoded enough to allow X to run?
Despite these, I give NetBSD some serious credit for running in any form on something this old.
