    Hello!

    I'm looking for an old linux for Power Mac - MkLinux.
    Versions:
    1) R2rc3 (Better Late than Never, March 2004)
    2) R2rc4 (Clean Up on Aisle Four!, August 2004)


    Could somebody have an *.ISO Image of that?
    Or where I can download this versions?

    What is the MODEL of your Power Mac?

    How much RAM have you got?

    Any particular reason you are looking for old versions of Linux?

    Debian has a great PPC port. You might want to use it. Maybe you can find a download through torrents?

    Thanx, but this is DR3 (July 1998) version.

    Old computers is my hobby. I have some Power Macs (7500, 7300, early G3).

    I found only the following versions:
    - DR3 (July 1998)
    - pre-R1
    - pre-R2 (Lazarus, June 2002)
    - R2rc1 (Phoenix, December 2002)
    - R2rc2 (The Bad Pun Release, April 2003)

    BTW, what was the last release of MkLinux?

    It is so old ...either you will have great difficulty finding it ...or if you do find it it will be a pain to use.

    The last time I had a G3 (and sufficient RAM) I used Xubuntu.
