Gentoo Linux on the Alpha
Posted on 19th September 2002 by seemant and drobbins

AlphaServer GS160

We are proud to announce Gentoo Linux for the Alpha processor! In a testament to the power and flexibility of the Portage system and Gentoo Linux, Bjoern Brauel (aka "bjb") has done the amazing job of creating a whole new port for Gentoo Linux in the span of 2 (yes, TWO) days (yes, DAYS). Currently, Bjoern has Xfree86, GNOME 2, Gimp and other things running on Gentoo Linux/Alpha, as you can see in this screenshot. The Gentoo Linux/Alpha port is currently being incorporated into our Portage tree; in the mean time, the adventurous may be interested in playing with the Alpha stage 1 tarball. Many thanks to Bjoern for his excellent work in launching the Gentoo Linux/Alpha development effort.
