Large Open Source Software Archive for AIX

This site contains a collection of open source and GNU (R) software packages built for AIX 5L and AIX 6.
Some of these packages 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.
Packages for AIX 6 do not run on lower versions (e.g. AIX 5.2).

All packages are built using the RPM format.

Some open source licenses (such as GPL) require that we also make the source available.
