Aurora SPARC Linux is an operating system, based on Fedora Core, for SPARC-based computers. Aurora was originally created after Red Hat dropped support for the SPARC architecture after Red Hat Linux 6.2.
The name derives from the internal Sun codename for the SPARCStation 5 chassis.
Since Aurora is derived from Fedora, and most of its developers are located in the US, it only maintains packages legally distributable in the United States.
Currently only Aurora Extras has an official status. This repository supports the currently released version of Aurora SPARC Linux Build 2.0. Aurora Extras is maintained by a group of volunteers. As a link to Extras is currently included in the base distribution, no extra configuration is required to enable it.
