Hardware Specific Linux


  • ARM Linux

  • ELKS - The Embeddable Linux Kernel Subset

    A variant of Linux for 8086 and 80286 class PCs. :-)

  • LinuxPPC

    Another Linux distribution for PowerMac and PReP machines - based on the regular monolithic Linux kernel from Linus. RPM based.

  • Linux/m68k (not really a distribution)

    There is much work being done to get the Linux kernel to work on Motorola m68k-based systems, such as the old Macs, Amigas, Ataris, MVME boards, old HP 9000/300 workstations, black NeXT hardware, and Sun 3 workstations.

    The Debian project is putting together an m68k distribution. And there is a collection of m68k RPMs on ftp.redhat.com/pub/m68k/. In addition, there is the German Eagle Linux M68k distribution for Amiga machines.

    A Linux distribution for Silicon Graphics MIPS-based machines. Red Hat based.

    A Linux distribution for Beowulf class machines (many machines tied together via networking that act as a single supercomputer). Based on Red Hat.

  • Guardian Networks Secure Linux
