Acorn PC Card Linux Files Unearthed
By Thom Holwerda, submitted by lollifant on 2007-02-15 14:56:54
An ancient build of Linux for Acorn PC cards has been uploaded to riscos.info as part of a new drive to revive the PC Card Linux project. The zipfile dates back to 1994, and contains Linux 1.1.29 and suitable drivers for pre-RiscPC machines fitted with PC cards. During the 1990s, Acorn and Aleph1 produced a range of PC cards for RiscPC and pre-RiscPC machines, which featured Intel 486-compatible processors. This allowed RISC OS users to run Windows and PC applications from their otherwise ARM-powered desktop machines.
