Is it possible somehow to install Arch on a computer that has Alpha bios..??
I´ve tried to find anything about it... But I sure seems it look pretty difficult...
Could someone please tell me how to do it?? I have found a installations guide for turbo linux, but I´m not sure that it´s the same with arch?? But if someone would help me with this problem that would be great... But please explain it simple - that I´m not that much into English...
Just getting better .... All the time
As "alpha Bios" is some time used for moded / beta bios that are used by enthusisasts, I'd like to be sure what is that "Alpha bios" in your post. If it is the same, or a special brand (like Award, etc) ?
Seeded this month: Arch 80 gig (and Talking~ 2, ~-anywhere 46, Apricity 16)
Desktop @3.3GHz 8 gig RAM, linux-ck
laptop1 Atom 2 gig RAM, Arch linux stock i686 (6H w/ 6yrs old battery ) & 2: ARM Tegra K1, 4 gig RAM, ChrOS
Atom Z520 2 gig RAM, OMV (Debian 7) kernel 3.16 bpo on SDHC | PGP Key: 0xFF0157D9
if you're talking about the Alpha CPU supercomputer, then no. Arch only works on i686, which means Pentium Pro architecture. Alpha is entirely different.
This site has some of the best info I have found on linux on the alpha proc.
