Linux in a logical partition


Install, configure, manage, troubleshoot, and run the Linux® operating system in a logical partition on a model 8xx or model 270 System i™ platform.

IBM® and a variety of Linux distributors have partnered to integrate the Linux operating system with the reliability of the iSeries™ server. Linux brings a new generation of Web based applications to the iSeries. IBM has modified the Linux PowerPC® kernel to run on previous iSeries servers and in a logical partition hosted by either AIX® or i5/OS® and contributed the kernel back to the Linux community.
