Ancient Amiga Linux

So for some reason I though I would have luck with this super old m68k port of Linux running on UAE, now that it can run AMIX.  Sadly it cannot.

From what I can tell the 0.06 strain was the first to boot and do something, so this archive that includes 0.7 along with 0.08 & 0.09 is a good find.  While it may not seem that immediately obvious, the m68k port to the Atari ST & Commodore Amiga were the first community port of Linux to a different processor.  At the time Linus was working on a Dec Alpha port from what I recall.

For what it is worth.

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!
