MkLinux DR2

Send Article to a Friend

MkLinux DR2 -- Last week, Apple released DR2 of MkLinux, a version of the Linux operating system for Power Macintosh they're describing as a "beta quality" release. MkLinux DR2 is a significant improvement on DR1, offering much better performance, better serial, SCSI, and networking support (including AppleTalk), and many bug fixes, although support for PCI Power Macs has yet to arrive. MkLinux DR2 is available via FTP and CD-ROM, but due to its huge size, I recommend the $20 CD-ROM from Prime Time Freeware. [GD]
