Other Sites



Many Linux-related sites duplicate information and others focus on specific issues. The links below go to sites that we feel are important and useful web sites.


This site contains lots of information about running Linux on mainframes. Linuxvm.org was conceived as a companion web site for the Linux-390 mailing list that is hosted by Marist College. Gzip compressed copies of the mailing list, items of interest from the mailing list, technical and management presentations, 900+ links to articles, etc. are available.

Linux-390 Mailing List

This is the web interface to the archives of the Linux-390 mailing list that is hosted by Marist College. This mailing list was where the original, non-IBM Open Source project to port Linux to the mainframe started in 1998. Today, it where most of the discussion about Linux on the mainframe takes place. It is "inhabited" by most of the experts on this platform, and is a great place to get help. You can subscribe by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and filling in the web form.
