Linux on System z

Our Team Invented the Virtual Server Farm
Sine Nomine Associates introduced the concept of the virtual server farm using Linux on the S/390 IBM mainframe. Since then, our team has “not looked back,” developing applications for cloning Linux images, refining procedures for large-scale implementations, and sharing our knowledge at trade shows, at conferences, and in professional magazines.

Linux Distributions


What is it?
Linus Torvalds developed the Linux kernel as an open source operating system alternative and distributed its first version, 0.01, in 1991. Linux was initially distributed as source code only, and later as a pair of downloadable floppy disk images – one bootable and containing the Linux kernel itself, and the other with a set of GNU utilities and tools for setting up a file system.

This package contains a CMS utility to format and/or partition disks
for Linux use. The package can be downloaded here.

For ECKD disks the label and VTOC tracks are in OS format and are the
same as created by the DASDFMT Linux command.  The partitioning
information in the VTOC is the same as the information created by the
FDASD Linux command.

For FBA disks the label and VTOC blocks are in DOS/VSE format.
