The Official Home Page of the IA-64 Linux Project
Logo concept from Simo Sorce
The IA-64 Linux Project, formerly known as the Trillian Project, was started in May 1999 with the goal of creating a Linux port for IA-64 that would be
available to the Open Source community at or before the Itanium(tm) processor launch.
The IA-64 Linux Project includes representatives from: Caldera Systems, CERN, Debian, Hewlett Packard, IBM, Intel, Linuxcare, NEC, Red Hat, SGI, SuSE, TurboLinux, and VA Linux Systems. Please
visit this site for updates on IA-64 Linux.

The official mailing list, linked above, is down right now and
there is no firm date for when it will be back up. In the meantime
a backup list
has been set up. We will use this list until the old one is
running again (and potentially we will migrate all traffic
over to the new list).
