No mail for me.
So right now I'm at my Uncle's house, which, unlike my grandparents'
place, has DSL. Unfortunately, my computer that I keep all of mail
(and more imporantly, procmail settings) on is at my parents house,
which is connected via cable modem, but unfortunately behind a
linksys NAT. Bah.
Sometimes it seems like my biggest contribution to humanity is that I
know how to connect a Model 100 to a serial port.
That is all.
So, I've finally got around to trying something I had thought about for a long time: making a lnx-bbc for powerpc, or at least newworld powermacs. At first glance, it may seem like an easy job, but is complicated by several factors:
- I know nothing of packaging
- Making cds bootable on x86 and ppc are widely different processes
- Getting some packages to build requires a bit more than a simple make build (examples, glibc, kernel)
So, either something will come of this, or I'll get frustrated and move on.
(footnote: It is my understanding that many macs can boot off of USB, this fact may or may not provide interesting.)
