Linux on SPARC

UltraLinux

UltraLinux(http://www.ultralinux.org/faq.html) is the name given to the port of Linux the SPARC(TM) family of processors most commonly found in Sun(TM) workstations and clones. The port has been developed over the past few years and is currently very stable. It supports most workstations including the older 32bit SPARC processors and the newer 64bit UltraSPARC based workstations.

Aurora SPARC Linux Project

The Aurora SPARC Linux Project(http://auroralinux.org/) offers a Linux port for SPARC devices.

Solarpack

The Solarpack(http://solarpack.sf.net/) project is a repository of 1400+ pre-compiled packages of free software for Solaris systems and a distribution of the NetBSD package collection tools (NPCT) for Solaris. The goal is to make Free & Open Source Software on Solaris just as easily available as it could be on BSD or Linux distributions.

Frkit

Frkit(http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/laptop/frkit/) is a tool that enables one to easily download modules and manage them. The list of modules is maintained as a manifest. When this tool is run, it downloads new modules (if available) including newer versions of modules previously installed based on this manifest. The user is presented with a list modules to choose from. Frkit can also be used to checkpoint a set of installed modules or ignore a set of modules. The command must be run as root. The current manifest contains:

Peripherals

SunDrive

The SunDrive(http://nextcomeurope.com/) is an all-in-one device about the size of a magic-marker pen, allows users to copy or exchange any computer files and MP3 files between our UltraSPARC-based laptops and Sun workstations running Solaris 8 or 9 plus any Intel-based system running Linux, Windows XP, 2000 or Me and Macintosh systems with USB support. This device is also a high fidelity MP3 player including dual earphones.

Multi-Media Flash Reader/Writer

The Solaris 8 supported USB portable multimedia flash card reader/writer(http://nextcomeurope.com/) reads and writes to seven different popular digital media: CF-I, CF-II, Smart Media(TM), Memory Stick(TM), Micro Drive(TM), Multimedia Card(TM) and Secure Digital Card(TM).

APM

APM information(http://www.ynp.net/Solaris86/APM.html) and Suspend/Resume script(http://www.ynp.net/Solaris86/hiber) .

Drivers: PCMCIA, NIC, ..

X11

See Xi-Graphics(http://www.xig.com/) for commercial X-Servers, which support Solaris.
