You run some version of Linux on a Sinclair (what, ZX81, Spectrum,
QL...?)? On a Z80? Well I heard you somehow can run Linux on a Motorola
68XXX but never managed to get something like an Amiga Linux running.

Unless you want to start a flame war you're wrong here.

F'up comp.sys.sinclair. Please ignore if you want to talk about the Amiga. :-)

You would need a 68000 with an MMU (yes, there is some uC-linux for
mmu-less machines but... ) so that would rule out most normal QLs I think.

"NetBSD" is AFAIK the most common distro for the AMIGA. I remember an
Engineer from the local AMIGA-Store that times (~1992), NetBSD was
installed on an A2000 GVP030/50 with a flickerfixer-videocard (GVP
onboard SCSI Harddisk, 32bit RAM etc. ...no gfx-card).
I think he used a C compiler which was prefered by him under NetBSD,
and his usenet-client for the daily (insider)AMIGA-News...

I don't have any real hardware here so was trying an Amiga emulator
(fs-uae), so I "have" what it needs (Amiga 500-3000 I believe with any
combination of additional hardware). The problem was I could find an Amix
hard disk image or one for the Amiga Debian Linux, which even was
accepted by the emulator.
