- - ---

CRUX PPC is a port of CRUX for the Power Architecture® platform. It’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 Intellistation POWER workstations and IBM Power Systems
servers. CRUX PPC includes support for laptop-specific features,
extended hardware support and server tools.

CRUX PPC 2.7 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.

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, that’s not the goal. If you’re
part of the target audience however, you might enjoy running CRUX just
as much as we do.
