Large Open Source Software Archive for AIX

We have moved to a new VM. If you experience any unexpected issue, please warn us through the Contact page.

This site contains a collection of open source and GNU (R) software packages built for AIX 5L, AIX 6, and AIX 7.
Some of these packages have one package per AIX version but in most cases, a package built for an AIX release (5.3 or 6.1) will also run on upper releases.
Packages for AIX N do not run on lower versions (e.g. packages for AIX 7.1 do not run on AIX 6.1 or on 5.3).

The Open Source Packages for AIX will help compiling and packaging Linux applications on AIX systems, developing new applications for AIX using the GNU environment, and running popular software provided in Linux distributions such as:

These packages also provide a set of tools both for Linux appplication developers and Linux system administrators.
All packages are built using the RPM format.

Some open source licenses (such as GPL) require that we also make the source available.
Only sources for packages with licenses requiring source redistribution are found on this site.
