    The m68k port is still going strong - actually it has been so for
    years. We have a very stable kernel and I'm currently working with
    Linus on getting our patches integrated into the native kernel.

    Richard Hirst has ported Linux/m68k to the MVME 162, 166 and 167 (a
    port to the 142 is in the works), see http://www.sleepie.demon.co.uk/
    for details. I dont know anything about the MVME176/177 boards but I
    think it should be rather easy to support these new boards based on
    Richard's existing work.

    You can also subscribe to the Linux/m68k mailinglist by mailing
    majordomo@phil.uni-sb.de with the line "subscribe linux-m68k" and post
    to linux-m68k@phil.uni-sb.de.

    Besides, work is in progress for the Sun3, Apollo Domain and Apple
    Macintosh. For general Linux/m68k info check out
