MartUX – an OpenIndiana/Illumos based Solaris distribution for reviving SPARC hardware support.

MartUX_OpenIndiana is based upon OpenIndiana oi_151a, which was released for x86 hardware in 2011. The LiveDVD distribution release is focusing upon SPARC hardware support. This is the first SPARC release of an OpenIndiana / Illumos distribution.

MartUX is targeting sun4u and sun4v with 64-bit Sun UltraSPARC I, II, III, IV, T1, and T2 processors. There’s also support for Fujitsu SPARC64-V, SPARC64-VI, SPARC64-VII, and SPARC64-VII+ processors. It also provides hardware accelerated graphics drivers with openXSun for the Sun XVR graphics processors plus Elite3D, Creator, and other select models.

Previously, MartUX was based upon OpenSolaris and originally released only on sun4u architecture.

The founder and developer of MartUX is Martin Bochnig.
He develops OpenSXCE now, which is based on Solaris Express Community Edition.

illumian – an open-source operating system that combines technologies from Nexenta OS, OpenIndiana and Debian GNU/Linux.
illumian is a successor of a discontinued Nexenta OS which appears to be made by a merge of the Nexenta OS and OpenIndiana development teams.

illumian uses illumos kernel and Debian’s userland, including APT package manager. illumian is available as dual-arch installable CD ISO image that includes software packages optimized for both the 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.

The first (and the last) release of the illumian distribution includes only a minimal collection of packages, similar to what is installed using the OpenIndiana “text mode” installer. This distribution uses the same versions of externally maintained packages as the OpenIndiana project uses, most of which are maintained in the illumos-userland gate.
