my oldest Mac I tried to run Linux on is a Powerbook
1400 but I can't
remember if it ran ever.
For macs like a MAC II I think you have to look for
NetBSD also offers a port to the 68k machines. I doubt that either
runs much of the heavier stuff like KDE or Gnome.
I dont't know if SUSE offered a linux-version for
I don't believe so. There wasn't much support for the crappy 52xx,
62xx, 53xx, or 63xx(except the 6360) due to the lack of PCI support and
NetBSD doesn't support these because they use quik to boot instead of
BootX, and there is no real Open Firmware on those machines. I happen
to have 2 5215cds and 1 6200 that I am looking to upgrade to 5500 or
6500 boards. I have the 5400 as well, but openSuSE locks up in the
text based YaST. Also, since it doesn't have a real graphics chip, and
the 55/6500s have an ATI Mach64, then it might be able to run it with a
G3/400 or better upgrade. It's for my son, who has games that run on
the Mac OS, and who likes to play some of the kids linux games.
