SliTaz PPC Linux for the AmigaOne X1000
« on: November 27, 2013, 11:04:05 AM »
I have released a snapshot of SliTaz PPC Linux for the AmigaOne X1000.



SliTaz GNU/Linux is a free operating system working completely in memory from removable media such as a cdrom or CF card or USB key. It is light and speedy. SliTaz is distributed in the form of a initrd.gz that you can easily burn to a cdrom or copy to a CF card or USB key and boot from. When the system is running you can eject the LiveCD or USB key and use your CD drive or USB socket for other tasks. SliTaz PPC is in development yet.

The snapshot includes:

- BusyBox 1.21.1 and SliTaz base configuration to boot the system
- automatical network configuration at boot time
- bc-1.06 - Text mode calculator
- zlib-1.2.8 - Compression libraries
- pcre-8.33 - Perl-compatible regular expressions
- e2fsprogs-1.42.8 - Filesystem management utilities
- Dropbear-2013.60 - Lightweight SSH client and server
- lighttpd-1.4.32 - HTTP Web server

- microperl-5.18.1 - A tiny Perl
- ncurses-5.9-20131110 - Terminal utilities and libraries
- clex-4.6.patch6 - File Manager
- Bash 4.2 - Unix shell
- nano-2.0.9 - Advanced Text Editor
- retawq-0.2.6c - Text mode Web browser
- htop-1.0.2 - System process viewer

- Ninvaders-0.1.1 - Space Invaders clone
- bastet-0.43 - Bastard Tetris clone
- rhapsody-0.28b - IRC chat client
- locales
- expat-2.1.0 - XML parser library

Note: SliTaz PPC has still not a desktop. It's an experimental system for experienced users.

You can boot it with following commands:

CFE> ramdisk -z -addr=0x24000000 -fatfs cf0:slitaz10.gz

Snapshot 22 with AmiWM 0.20.48 :)

AmiWM is an X window manager that tries to make your display look and  feel like an Amiga Workbench screen. It is fully functional and can do  all the usual window manager stuff, like moving and resizing windows.  You can start AmiWM with the script "startamiwm".

The script "startamiwm" contains the following command:

Code: [Select]
Xfbdev -retro -mouse mouse,device=/dev/input/mice -keybd evdev,,device=/dev/input/event0 | xterm -e amiwm

Have a lot of fun with SliTaz. :)

*** Snapshot 23 with Worker, the DOpus clone for Linux ***

Download: slitaz23.gz

I suggest to download SliTaz with a right click on the link and then with the menu point "Save target as" or something like this.



Worker is also available for the Live Remix distribution.



Download: worker-3.3.3-2-linux-powerpc.tar.bz2

Have a lot of fun with the new Worker 3.3.3-2!
