I have an LCII and is looking for information on the status of MacBSD
for this model. The NetBSD/mac68k Machine Status (Last modified: 14
November 1994) says the LCII "*may* work with FPU emulation or a
distribution compiled with -msoft-float".
Another caveat is a adb driver. The ROM ADB driver may work or may
Last I know Ken was working on the FPU emulation. How is that going
or where could I get a compiled version with the -msoft-float option.
Surely someone is using this option (!?).
With the adb driver has anyone ever tried the new driver on the LCII ?
I would appreciate any help as I am desparate to get UNIX at home. The
only other possibility is MachTen at $1k!
