    Hi,

    a long time ago (about a year) I tried to install linux on my old Performa 630 (a german variant of the american LC-series, as far as I know). After coming familiar with the install procedure I found that some chipsets of this series are buggy. ;-((

    And i read anywhere in a mailing list of this project that there is still someone trying to fix this or to create a workaround.

    I tried to subscribe to the list "linux-mac68k@mac.linux-m68k.org" but it seems that this list isn't up to date. I got an error "no such user". The subsribing mail was returned! ;-(

    Why do I write this message? (only god knows...)

    Is there still anyone who want to have a chip of this series with bug? Of course there woldn't be any costs (perhaps the money for sending it abroad)

    I live in Muenster, Germany.

    Any comments welcome ;-)

    Bye, bye, thank you for your engagemnet in porting Linux to such old unuseful bit beautiful machines....

    Regards, Ludger

      To become more directly:

      Could anyone post me the rigth address for the common mailing list or explain me the error message:
