CRUX PPC Linux Mirror

This is just a quick notice: In the top menu of this blog and the whole site vivapowerpc.eu you can find a new section called SOFTWARE with a mirror of now defunct CRUX PPC Linux distribution. The last version is six years old, so there are more fresh options for most PowerPC users, but from my experience this was probably the only Linux distro ever working on IBM IntelliStation POWER 185, which is neither PowerMac-compatible nor equipped with POWER CPU. Absolute majority of Linux systems were targeted to these two platforms and almost all of them failed to boot on the one-eight-five. CRUX PPC did and there was even patch for the X11 to have colors right (without that blue and green were swapped on the default graphics).

There may be further additions to the SOFTWARE section, if I find any worth occupying my precious server storage. Also, if you prefer the good old Gopher protocol over HTTP/WWW, you can browse the CRUX PPC mirror this way.
