CRUX PPC 2.6 is now available.
CRUX PPC is a port of CRUX for the Power ArchitectureÂ® platform. Itâ€™s a GNU system with a Linux kernel and runs on Apple NewWorld (both 32 and 64bit) PowerPC, YDL Powerstation, Genesi PegasosII and EFIKA, ACube Sam440ep, IBM RS/6000 CHRP and pSeries servers. CRUX PPC includes support for laptop-specific features, extended hardware support and server tools.
CRUX PPC is a volunteer driven no-profit project based on the releases of CRUX for x86. It contains software written by a lot of different people, each software comes with its own license, chosen by its author. Parts written by CRUX PPC Team are to intend as free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
Unlike other distributions, the primary goal of CRUX is not to be the most popular (read: biggest number of users) or to put as many features as possible into the system. The idea is rather to build a streamlined distribution, targetted at a specific audience which in turn gets a system without compromises. The result may not be the best distribution for everybody, but as mentioned above, thatâ€™s not the goal. If youâ€™re part of the target audience however, you might enjoy running CRUX just as much as we do.
CRUX PPC 2.6 is, as usual, released via two different installation ISO: 32bit and 64bit. The 32bit version is based on a single lib toolchain instead the 64bit one comes with a multilib toolchain. These two versions share the same ports tree.
