 Mklinux on HP-PARISC / Release Notes
This is the release of the MkLinux server based on Linux 2.0.30 and the Open Group RI Microkernel (called pmk1.1) for the HP PA-RISC 1.1 HP700 series.
MkLinux server was already running on the PowerMac and Intel platforms.
Gdb is available to debug ELF Linux programs, however to debug the MkLinux server itself we use a remote ethernet gdb, called tgdb, which has been found very useful to do symbolic debugging on (unix or non-unix) Mach tasks.

We are sorry, but as of this release, MkLinux still does not contain support for systems using the PowerPC 603 or 603e chips (many Performa models, the Duo models, or the Powerbook models).
MkLinux currently uses the same basic partitioning structure that was used for Apple's A/UX product, so most utilities should support setting up the partitions.

 Ars Technica: No G3 for you!  Page 2   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
MkLinux is/was a PPC port of Linux (one of a few, with LinuxPPC being most notable).
What makes this port so special is that Apple was promoting the hell out of it for a while, distributing MkLinux on Apple CDs, hosting a web page for the community and giving a little FTP bandwidth for the distro.
Let’s face it, through 1995-7 MkLinux was the schtuff that kept a Copland-weary crowd hopeful (or, at least part of the mix).

 using Swarm with MkLinux   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The main issue with installing and running Swarm on MkLinux (http://www.mklinux.apple.com/) is getting a version of gcc that correctly compiles Objective C on Power Macs.
Since then, the gcc 2.7.x that is distributed for MkLinux has been updated to compile Objective C correctly on the Power Mac, so you don't need to follow my earlier instructions.
I belive that the version of gdb 4.16 that is distributed with MkLinux doesn't understand Objective C, but there are patches available for gdb 4.16 that may work under MkLinux as well.

 Linux am Mac FAQ | Article: Interview with Kai Staats
Up until recently, there were only two versions of Linux for the PowerPC: MkLinux from Apple and the Open Source Foundation, and LinuxPPC, from group of programmers porting Linux to the PPC (now represented commercially by LinuxPPC, Inc.).
So the two discovered MkLinux, installed it, and the rest (to use a phrase more worn than one of Potter's chew toys) is history.
MkLinux does not appear to have the forward momentum of the LinuxPPC effort.

 History of Linux for the PowerPC
The divide in the LinuxPPC community between LinuxPPC and MkLinux was because many people wanted more hardware information then Apple was willing to release, the latest PCI Macintosh computers were not yet supported by MkLinux and many did not want to run Linux on Mach for one reason or another.
In August of 1996 MkLinux DR2 was released as a major update to DR1.

 MkLinux Server Analysis
Methinks the MkLinux coders are relying on the fact that global variables are initialized to 0 before being used, so the Mach kernel just returns the current default memory manager into default_pager_port.
I presume that this is because when the MkLinux server is kernel-located, Mach can easily identify that no context switching and copying of data has to be done when delivering a Mach message, and using a subsystem would be more inefficient than just letting Mach handle it.
If the MkLinux server is running under another server (possibly another MkLinux server), it uses parent_server_get_mach_privilege() to get control of the console, otherwise it uses the Mach device_open() call to open it (using the security token described above).

 OpenPA: Other PA-RISC OSs
The first MkLinux for PA-RISC Snapshots were published by OSF/The Open Group, which in this form no longer exist today.
MkLinux was the first free operating system that truly ran on PA-RISC hardware (in contrast to Mach, which suffered from unfinished development and a lot of bugs on PA-RISC).
However, the system was quite sluggish (with some blaming it on the underlying Mach microkernel), software support was quite crude and at the time of its active development PA-RISC workstations were not really largely distributed to private end-users (i.e., there wasn't the large hobbyist userbase PA-RISC has now).

This allows the OS (whether MacOS or MkLinux) to handle hardware configuration concerns such as DMA addresses and interrupt vectors.
By porting MkLinux to the Intel platform, Apple opens the way for both Intel and PowerMac users to try out the new system, trade software, etc. And, should the merits of MkLinux justify a switch, it is not inconceivable that many Linux users would be willing to adopt a different kernel.
"MkLinux: Mach/Linux for the Power Macintosh", being edited with the assistance and support of Apple, will contain a variety of reference material about Linux, Mach, MkLinux, and the Power Macintosh.
