Regarding the recent NetBSD 1.0 announcement:
I would like to know whether MacBSD works on a MacIIfx. The INSTALL
file lists a number of supported & unsupported models, but is not
clear (in this file or the FAQ) on what happens with my IIfx.
Excerpt from INSTALL:
> Mac II
> Mac IIx
> Mac IIcx
> Mac IIci
> Mac SE/30
>Some systems will boot and are usable from an external terminal
>(serial tty or SL/IP):
> Mac IIsi
> Mac IIvx
> possibly others
>What isn't supported, but often asked about:
> Ethernet cards. There is a driver that is very close to working
> for a number of cards. Contributions are very welcome.
> 68040-based Macs. Work is in progress on getting a Quadra 700
> running. This requires a new scsi driver and a new
> ethernet driver.
Thanks for your reply.
