These packages are available for installation using the rpm package manager. Download the AIX installp image for the rpm package manager for POWER (RTE, 2.3MB).

For further information, installation tips, and news, please refer to the AIX Toolbox for Linux Applications ReadMe (TXT, 35KB).

If you wish to access the source code for any of these packages, it is recommended that you visit the official download site of the package maintainer directly. A link to each download site appears in the table below. These links are provided "as-is" and will take you to sites that are not owned or controlled by IBM. IBM is not accountable for the contents of these sites and is not acting as a distributor of the code on such sites. IBM in no way warrants that the code or other information on these sites is accurate, will function in a particular manner, or is non-infringing of a third party's intellectual property rights. Please contact the maintainers of the code for information on the licenses and documentation that accompany the source code distributed from their site.

Some open source licenses (such as the GPL) require that we also make the source available to you on request. For packages governed by such licenses, you may still get the source from the official package site, or you can get the source from us via this link: Source Images. Only those sources with licenses requiring source redistribution are found at this site. Developers building their own rpm images may also be interested in the spec files and patches.
