Stop the Presses
The port of the Linux Operating System to Mips R4x00 based computers has been announced on the Internet. A complete Linux/MIPS distribution is expected in 1995.
This message announces the availability of version 0.9.2 of Linux/68k. It can be ftped from directory /pub/linux/680x0 at tsx-11.mit.edu. A precompiled kernel executable can be found in vmlinux-0.09pl2.gz in the “kernel” subdirectory.
The corresponding “bootstrap” program for the Amiga is available in file amiboot-1.8.gz in the “kernel” subdirectory. If available, the “bootstrap” program for the Atari will be found in file “ataboot-0.2.gz” in the “kernel” subdirectory (the author of this ANNOUNCE-* file cannot compile such a “bootstrap” program and thus is waiting for one from someone else).
The source patch for the this version of the kernel can be found in linux-0.9.pl2.diff.gz in the “src” subdirectory.
Lars Wirzenius posted in comp.os.linux.announce: ..I'm taking over maintenance of the Linux Software Map, or LSM for short. I'll start by making a number of changes; see the new LSM template below. In addition to changes to the template, you might want to prepare yourselves for some initial confusion on my part while I make myself comfortable with the new job. :-)
Hopefully everything will go well. Don't wish me luck, send me constructive criticism.
I am uploading to sunsite a database in the new form and a tool for browsing it. The tool, called lsmtool, is not all that well written, and is somewhat prone to crash. You have been warned. It also requires Publib, a library of C functions I've written, which you will have to get separately.
I would be grateful if anyone who keeps the LSM on WWW or makes it otherwise available would contact me. There might be something that I can do to make your life simpler, and at the very least, I can list URL's in the README.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
