Welcome to the ZSystems edit

openSUSE for IBM Z and LinuxONE is on its way!

Due to the demand for an open z Systems distribution, we started to build the architecture s390x on the Open Build Service. Find the development project page at openSUSE:Factory:zSystems. If you want to contribute, it is recommended to submit patches via openSUSE:Factory. They will be transferred to the zSystems port after the approval.

Please join the opensuse-zsystems mailing list for questions or help.

Topics edit

To install, use the repositories available at http://download.opensuse.org/ports/zsystems/tumbleweed/repo/oss/ or download the ISO image from http://download.opensuse.org/ports/zsystems/tumbleweed/iso/. Note, that this project is a port to Tumbleweed, and not a fully supported architecture.
