All About AIX

Open Source Packages for AIX

This site contains a collection of open source and GNU (R) softwares built for AIX 5L and 6.
They run on any platform supporting either one AIX version or both.

Some tools have one package per AIX version but in most cases, a package built for an AIX 5 release (5.2 or 5.3) will also run on upper releases thanks to upward binary compatibility. Packages for AIX 6 are specific.

These softwares provide a set of tools both for Linux appplication developers and Linux system administrators. All packages are built using the RPM format.
Thanks to the strong affinity between Linux and AIX for applications and to AIX long history of standards compliance, it is usually easy to rebuild Linux applications for AIX.

The Open Source Packages for AIX will help for compiling and packaging Linux applications on AIX systems, developing new applications for AIX using the GNU environment, and running popular software provided in Linux distributions.

These packages can be organized in three main software areas (not all are listed here) :
  • Web 2.0 : Apache, MySQL, PHP, Python, Ruby, Memcached, Squid,...
  • Development : gcc, gdb, Tcl/Tk, autoconf, automake, libtool and some utilities : bash2, coreutils, binutils, tar, cpio, patch,...
  • Strategic applications : rpm, db, window managers, libraries, graphic applications...

Some open source licenses (such as the GPL) require that we also make the source available.
Only those sources with licenses requiring source redistribution are found at this site.
Developers building their own rpm images may also be interested in the spec files and patches.
