Elemental (The Elemental Linux Server (ELS)) – designed from the outset to be a minimal, no-frills server distribution.

There is no GUI, everything is console-based. There is no package manager, packages are installed from .tar.gz files. There is no administration tool, all configuration is done by manually editing files in the /etc directory.

There is also very little bloat in the ELS distribution.

ELS will easily install on the vintage 1998 Pentium II computer that’s sitting in your basement collecting dust. Don’t throw it out, reanimate it as a home file server or a personal web server.

The project founder is David Horton.

TalkingArch – a modification of the Arch Linux installation media, enabling the installation of Arch Linux, also for the visually impaired.

TalkingArch started as Chris Brannon’s personal project to help him more easily install Arch Linux with speech. With much help and input from the community, and with the wonderful work of the Archiso team powering the back end, TalkingArch has grown to become one of the best available live images for rescue and recovery, as well as for installing Arch Linux.

Although it is not an official Arch Linux install image, the aim of the project is to stay as consistent as possible with the official install image and Arch principles, while adding speech and braille support to allow Arch Linux to be installed by blind and visually impaired users.

The last version | Released: 1.1.9 | December 11, 1998

UltraPenguin – a Linux distribution for SPARC and UltraSPARC based workstations, which is based on Red Hat Linux. This distribution is for both 32bit and 64bit SPARC CPUs, the advantage is that this distribution works on 32bit SPARCs (sun4 (hopefully, SILO not yet, install image neither), sun4c, sun4m, sun4d) and on 64bit SPARCs.

It is released under GPL. There are really no guarantees and you cannot make Red Hat Software, Inc. liable for anything, as this is really just based on their work.

Supported Hardware CPU’s:
– Sun4 machines (4/300 only at the moment)
– Sun4c machines (IPC, SS1, etc)
– Sun4m machines (IPX, Classic, SS5, SS10, SS20, …, including SMP boxes; only SS5/170 is not yet supported)
– UltraSPARC SBUS based workstations (Ultra1, Ultra2, Ultra1 Creator, Ultra2 Creator, including SMP configurations)
– UltraSPARC PCI based workstations (Ultra30, UltraAX, Ultra10, Ultra5, Ultra60)
– UltraSPARC SBUS based servers: Enterprise 1, 2, 150, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 10000 (SMP is being worked on)
– UltraSPARC PCI based servers: Enterprise 450 (including SMP)

UltraLinux is a fast 64bit free operating system, which supports up to 1TB of physical and another 1TB of IO memory, fully supports Linux/Sparc 32bit binaries plus will soon support 64bit UltraLinux ELF binaries. It uses the Visual Instruction Set for high bandwidth operations, even older 32-bit applications take advantage of this increased performance if they are dynamically linked. The 64-bit userland for UltraPenguin is half done, developers have initial statically linked ELF 64-bit binaries working. We will announce separately the availability of this so others can experiment with it and help us out, so please be patient.

July 12, 1997 – The UltraLinux team announces UltraPenguin 1.0 which was based on Red Hat Linux, version 4.2 for sparc.
