Description

This article is from the Frequently Asked Questions for Linux, the Free/Open Source UNIX-like operating system kernel that runs on many modern computer systems. Maintained by David C. Merrill with numerous contributions by others. (v1.0).

048. Where Are the Linux FTP Archives?

A: There are three main archive sites for Linux:

*ftp://ftp.funet.fi/pub/OS/Linux/ (Finland). *http://ibiblio.org/pub/linux/ (US), with a nice WWW interface. *ftp://tsx-11.mit.edu//pub/linux/ (US).

The best place to get the Linux kernel is ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/ kernel/. Linus Torvalds uploads the most recent kernel versions to this site.

Of the U.S. distributions, Debian GNU/Linux is available at http:// www.debian.org/distrib/. Red Hat Linux's home site is ftp://ftp.redhat.com/, and Linux Slackware's is ftp://ftp.freesoftware.com/.

The Small Linux distribution, which can run in 2 MB of RAM, is located at http://smalllinux.netpedia.net/.

The contents of these sites is mirrored (copied, usually approximately daily) by a number of other sites. Please use a site close to you will be faster for you and easier on the network.
