Spain, and mirrors at:
"It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never
will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that's all I have :-(."
- Linus Benedict Torvalds(torvalds@klaava.Helsinki.FI), 1991-08-25 23:12:08 PST -
, AMD (and Intel) 64-bit extension to the classical 32-bit x86 architecture.
, native port to the 32 and 64 bit PowerPC processor.
, port to IBM S/390 and zSeries Mainframe Architectures.
, HP/Intel IA-64 architecture.
, port to HP/Compaq/DEC Alpha microprocessor.
, port to 32bit SPARC and 64bit UltraSPARC microprocessor and clones.
- PA-RISC Linux
, native port of Linux to the Hewlett Packard Precision Architecture Family (PA-RISC).
- ARM Linux
, port to XScale, StrongARM and ARM microprocessors.
, Motorola 68000 series.
, port to MIPS Processor.
, port to ETRAX Asix chip.
, SuperH and SH-Mobile family of processors.
, 32-bit RISC processor of Renesas Technology.
, port to Fujitsu FR-V Family.
, port of Linux to several CPUs without a Memory Management Unit (MMU).
, port to HP/Compaq/DEC VAX architecture.
, support for NUMA Hardware.
- ELKS-The Embeddable Linux Kernel Subset
, Linux for 8086 to 80286 class PC's.
- Special PCs and Near PCs:
- MCA Linux
, Micro Channel workstation bus.
, port to Microsoft Xbox.
, NEC PC-9800 architecture has the intel architecture mpu, but is different from IBM PC.
- Linux for small things:
- Clustering and HA
, parallel Linux cluster.
, scalable cluster computing with process migration.
, high performance cluster environment without using the TCP/IP protocol stack.
, large-scale and massively parallel cluster.
- Ultra Monkey
, load sharing and balancing cluster.
- Red Hat Cluster Suite
, load sharing, balancing and High-Availability cluster.
, High-Availability cluster.
, High-Availability cluster.
, porting Linux to the AP1000+ and to add appropriate multi-processor extensions
to support parallel programs.
- Cluster Infrastructure(CI)
, common infrastructure for Linux clustering by extending the Cluster Membership and
Internode Communication Subsystems from HP's NonStop Clusters for Unixware code base.
, provide a full, highly available Single Sistem Image environment.
, Distributed Lock Manager provides an implementation of locking mode semantics modeled
after the VAX Cluster locking semantics for a Linux cluster.
, port to run Linux over a Mach microkernel at x86, HP PARISC and Apple PowerMac.
, The Dresden Real Time Operation Systems Project use monolithic Linux server
on top of the microkernel.
, port to the L4 µ-kernel.
- Fiasco µ-kernel
, a new µ-kernel running on x86 PCs intended to be compatible with the
L4 µ-kernel for x86. ; it services standard Linux applications.
, a firm real-time Linux.
, a hard real-time operating system.
, is a set of modules based on a minimal LINUX kernel change that implements a
Real Time Hardware Abstraction Layer (RTHAL) onto which a Real Time Application
Interface (RTAI) is built.
, enhanced Kernel for Multimedia Computing.
- Virtual kernel:
, a virtual machine monitor (VMM) for x86-compatible computers.
Xen can securely execute multiple virtual machines, each running
its own OS, on a single physical system with close-to-native performance.
, Linux kernel-based virtual servers running on a single piece of hardware.
- adeos || adeos
, the purpose of Adeos is to provide a flexible environment for sharing hardware resources
among multiple operating systems, or among multiple instances of a single OS.
- User-mode Linux
, is a port of the Linux kernel to its own system call interface. It runs
in a set of processes, resulting in a user-mode virtual machine.
, port of Linux to the a386 architecture, which is a virtual machine C library.
This means that Linux/a386 runs as a normal Unix process.
- Security-Enhanced Linux
, NSA port to a new security level. Low or high ? ;-)
