"...I'm pleased to announce the Embedded PowerPC Linux Boot Project at With support from Wolfgang Denk, we can offAer a flexible way to boot embedded PowerPC based devices using Linux. We are also looking for sponsors to support our development team in the future!"

"The Embedded PowerPC Linux Boot Project (PPCBOOT) intends to implement a common and easily extensible boot program for embedded devices. The entire project source code is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL), and takes advantage of an open development process at, the highly popular portal of open source software development."

"In the embedded world, it is very important to provide a flexible way of configuring the system environment. Accordingly, one of the project's primary goals is to achieve a very flexible way of configuring PPCBOOT. Developers must be able to decide which components are really needed within the actual target system."
