Quote from: Rob Blessin Black Hole on September 24, 2022, 05:41:37 PMTotally cool , nice work I'll give it a try ! So I'm trying to envision this so Previous running on my Mac Mini , To get Linux running first sounds a bit complicated , I'll try and we will probably need NeXT mouse driver foo lol , I wonder if there is an ADB mouse and Keyboard driver for Linux that would work for the NeXT Turbo V74 Rom Configuration which supports ADB ?looks like this doc has clues on ADB for Linux https://sixfab.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/Telit_Modules_Linux_USB_Drivers_User_Guide_r9.pdfDriver kit for NeXT may help in writing Linux Drivers https://www.nextcomputers.org/NeXTfiles/Docs/NeXTStep/3.3/nd/OperatingSystem/Part3_DriverKit/Concepts/1_Overview/Overview.htmld/index.html although it describes NeXTSTEP Intel drivers , how the heck does create NeXT 68K driver? It would be cool eventually to create a NeXT Linux App exactly like DayDream Darkmatter which boots Mac OS on NeXT Hardware which would reboot into Linux Or an App like Soft PC or Executor which would let you run Linux apps in emulation on NeXT 68K hardware ? Is it also possible to use the Linux port to create a bootable fully compiled NeXT68KLinux iso where you would simply be able to install it , now that would be fun . A boot manager like partition manager so you would be able to chose the OS , Previous may make this possible but it would be awesome to see it running on NeXT 68K then a hybrid GNUSTEP Linux 68K hybrid may warp out of the reality distortion field.

Quote from: eukara on November 04, 2022, 03:44:25 PMHow about XFree86? That should in theory still compile and run. It is used on some BSD systems because it's the only one still with some platform glue they need on some architectures I believe.
