LynuxWorks today introduced a PowerPC version of User-Mode Linux (UML) based on the latest Linux 2.6 kernel and available for PowerPC G5. LynuxWorks’ UML software will run on a LynuxWorks’ BlueCat Linux host, providing a stable Linux 2.6 virtual machine environment for a PowerPC platform. “UML is a safe, secure way of running multiple guest, or virtual, Linux machines and applications simultaneously on the same Linux host system. The virtual machine runs in user-mode, allowing complete user-level debug access to the Linux 2.6 kernel.”
