Extended Information: (Top of Page)

Previous editions of Red Hat Powertools were made up of three components: the Powertools themselves, tools and software not included in the Official Red Hat Linux boxed set; the Archives from Sunsite & Mozilla; and the Red Hat Linux distribution for the Alpha, Intel and SPARC platforms, and you got them all in a 6 CD set. That has changed.

Those three components are now offered as separate products for greater flexibility. You can now buy:

  • Linux Off-Line - Archives of the hottest Linux sites
  • Red Hat Linux Variety Pack - Red Hat Linux for the Intel/Alpha/SPARC with source
  • Powertools - Tons of software tools and packages for Linux not found in the Official Red Hat Linux boxed set.

Linux Powertools contains over 200 packages of extra tools and software that run on Linux. Instead of searching the net for Linux software and downloading tons of packages, save time and get a ton of software on the two Powertools CDs. Enjoy listening to a CD with Synesthasia while you fax a document or check ftp sites. Or you can sync your Palm Pilot, graph an equation, and emulate your old Amiga all on your Enlightenment desktop.

Tested and built by Red Hat Software, the included packages are in RPM format to make installing them on your system painless and worry free.
