Uh oh here he goes again, talking some crazy BS about an old ass platform from the 80’s/early 90’s and trying to make it do something stupid.
Hello amiga dudes and dudettes, assuming I have that many compatriots. I am trying to do something stupid with my A500. That being, install an OS to its sidecar hard drive. However, no matter what in the bloody fuck I try to do I cannot get my AmigaOS 2.04 disks to work. I have accepted that they are dead. So what have I decided to do instead? Buy cloanto’s software pack and install it over my gotek? No! Look at Unix and Linux!
I’m kind of hoping someone on here has messed with amiga unix or debian 8 on an amiga / M68K (but uh, no bets on the latter) and could walk me through how the install process is supposed to work? I’m overall unsure about what I’d actually DO with the thing after it was set up, but I bet I could think of… well… something.
If none of the 4 people on here have played with this before… F it I’m going on winworldpc and I’m just going to start bashing crap in till it works and I have bash 0.8 on it or something. Maybe I’ll port fish and then never turn the machine on again lol.
Anyways, info appreciated.
