While Xorro uses a PCIe x1 connector, it is not wired to the PA6T's PCIe subsystem.

Isn't Bigfoot's driver available through A-Eon by now?
And while Xorro uses a PCIe x1 connector, it is not wired to the P5's PCIe subsystem.

X5000/40 was shown at Amiga34 in Neuss :-)

Official PPC32 support (including G3/G4 Macs) has vanished from almost all Linux distros and certainly from all major ones. Big-endian PPC64 (including G5 Macs) is a small bit better off.

X1000 and X5000 are single-CPU ;-) PA6T was never available in single-core version, and using P5010 instead of P5020 would have saved some small dollars only (compared to overall board price). Bad decision was using a common board for P5020 and P5040, which are neither fully pin-compatible nor fully SerDes config compatible, resulting in crippling of P5020.https://morph.zone/modules/newbb_plus/viewtopic.php?forum=11&topic_id=12137&start=97
