AIX, Opensource and me PDF Print E-mail
Written by Michael Felt   

The early years

One of my hobbies is packaging opensource software for AIX. This goes back about a decade when I started out doing this as an optional exercise for AIX training classes. More or less parallel with the release of AIX 4.3.2 and 4.3.3 and the start of project Monteray that brought lots of involvement from IBM around the topic of Linux and affinity (read portability) between AIX and Linux.

I am sure you know the saying about the showmaker's children - he makes new shoes but his own children are in old shoes or their feet are bare. I have similiar concerns with my employer - as I notice do many of the system administrators I work with. There are great systems for the business - but next to no systems for their employees when it comes to having a system to learn, or experiment (read play) with.

I am in the slow process of updating the rootvg site and I am starting with the forums .

For the google hits - I am leaving this forum in place for now, but I am not planning on moving the content again.

The other big change is that I am breaking the bridge between the joomla part and the forums, so some search links may not be working.

Please accept my apologies for any inconviences as we make these moves.

Or is it POWERLinux? I do not really know. Only that finally the really free version of Linux is easily installable on POWER5/6/7 in a virtual machine (aka partition aka LPAR). There is just one thing you have to pay attention to - and I shall write that up tomorrow in a short article - HOWTO: Install Debian 7.1.0 on IBM POWER!!
