PowerLogix manufactured 3rd party G3 and G4 upgrade cards for Macintosh. This is their driver software for a G3 daughter card from 1999. PowerLogix included a full install of LinuxPPC 1999 Release 5, on the CD which came with the G3 daughter card.

I've added a copy of the driver for anyone who needs it, separate from the CD, so they don't need to DL 500 MBs of unrelated Linux software just to get the 400KB driver software.

I'm also archiving the entire CD for historical interest. LinuxPPC was a very good Linux to run at the time, based largely on Red Hat ports.

About LinuxPPC
LinuxPPC is completely compatible with programs compiled for MkLinux, except for the few that make Mach system calls. MkLinux is Apple Computer's version of Linux that runs on top of the Mach kernel.

LinuxPPC is a completely PowerPC-native operating system that can co-exist peacefully on the same hard drive as your original operating system, such as Mac OS, AIX, or BeOS. By placing LinuxPPC on separate partitions from your other operating system, it can function independently without interfering with any of your other data. You can also share files between the two systems by mounting the partitions within LinuxPPC. If you prefer, you can also install LinuxPPC on a separate hard drive or have it completely replace your original OS as your primary system.

Architecture: PPC

The PowerLogix Drivers are for PPC Macintosh

LinuxPPC 1999 runs on PCI-based Power Macintosh computers and compatibles as well as PowerPC BeBox, PReP and CHRP machines.

Machines that can run LinuxPPC include:
