Debian Squeeze for AmigaOne 500 and Sam series

Postby djrikki » Sun Apr 08, 2012 10:30 pm

Subject says it all. Seen as though I cannot post in the X1000 thread.. is there any chance of a Debian Squeeze port to this platform as well?

I'd love to be able to run another OS on it as well.

Hi djrikki,

You are in the AmigaOS support forums of Hyperion. There is no Linux support here.
There are already threads on a possible linux port for the AmigaOne 500 on community's forums.
You should check on these forums how is it progressing.

A linux port already exists. You can download the kernel from the Sam460ex page on ACube's website. I haven't tried it myself (not interested), but they have screenshots of Debian running, so it does work.
