Legacy POWER Hardware / Re: Old stuff survey
« on: June 25, 2020, 01:13:00 am »
Hello everyone, just registered here. While waiting for my 8C/32T Blackbird to arive, I tinker with any of these:  PowerMacintosh 7100, PowerMacintosh 7300, PowerMacintosh 7600, PowerMacintosh 9600, iMac G3 (original), iMac G3 (slot-load), PowerMac G4, PowerMac G5, Xserve G5, PowerBook G3 (Pismo), iBook G4 12",  PowerBook G4 12", PowerBook G4 15", 3x MacMini G4, IntelliStation POWER 185, RouterBoard RB600 (with the last OpenBSD supporting this board, used as a computer through old VT serial terminal) and some desk-side POWER4 based IBM server with faulty power circuits waiting to be repaired one day. I also still have Kanga, but it has faulty trackpad and malfunctioning L2 cache, so it's going to be swaped for some other RISC machine with other czech Mac collector.

Glad to be here.

Operating Systems and Porting / Re: Slackware64-Current

Hello, just registered to say a huge THANK YOU for porting Slackware - my preferred distro on x86 since some 2003/2004. My Blackbird is stuck three weeks on US customs, but just two days ago I was talking to some other czech Slackware users how to start on porting to POWER9 right after it arrives. Now I don't have to, someone else did it  :)

But I can at least offer space for a mirror. I can spare 50-60GB on with SSH/SCP upload, if you need. Server is located in OVH datacentres in France and is (of course) powered by Slackware.
