Question Acorn A7000


i just got an Acorn A7000(+) from a friend.

from what i can tell on the net i can get linux installed on it (and its not a bad little machine either.)

just one question that maybe someone knows.

does linux have support for the ethernet cards for acorn machines?

Have a look for the card at the linux hardware database and the ethernet-HOWTO at LDP.

tried them already.

neither seems to have anything about acorns.

that's the problem. acorns are an old british company that made risc computers (that used the RiscOS). there are a few companies that sell ethernet cards for the computer but i don't want to get one unless i know that the kernel will use it.


i want to use it as a router/firewall

Talking

ahhhh!

i just found it on www.arm.linux.org ! their website is badly designed (why not have a Supported Devices link on the homepage? i would of thought that would be a commonly wanted area).

the link for anyone interested is

Arm Linux

Debian have an ARM port of there distribution so i suggest trundeling over to debian.org and looking under there ports section. If you want to but it i recommend cheaplinux.co.uk (if you live in the uk) as i have used them many times and there cheap and reliable.
