The original content from the alphalinux.org website is available.

Static content now posted on GitHub

Peter Petrakis has very kindly uploaded the contents of the original alphalinux.org website to GitHub. Thanks also to Rich Payne.

You can choose between browsing files on the Github alphalinux project website, or getting a copy of the entire original site using "git clone".

OpenOffice

The OpenOffice 1.0.2 build for Alpha architecture file (OpenOffice1.0.2.Alpha.tar.bz2) was too large to be uploaded to Github so can be downloaded separately. Note: This file has not been tested. The original mailing list post relating to this build may be this one.

The Original Wiki

Some content from the original wiki has been recreated on this wiki. See the recreated Original Wiki Main Page, which was named "Main Page" on the original wiki. All other original wiki pages names have been kept the same.

The original wiki existed before this one, but it was lost before the current website maintainer took over. However, copies of a lot of its contents were archived by the non-profit organisation Internet Archive. The most recent working copy of the original wiki index page appears to be this one. (Any readers who find this useful may like to consider making a financial donation to the Internet Archive to support its work. Note that the author of this page is not affiliated to the Internet Archive.)

The work to manually recreate the content of the old wiki by manually copying the content from archive.org is helped because archive.org has also recorded the wiki markup language for most pages which can be seen by clicking the "View Source" tab on the archived wiki pages. However, large image files may not have been saved.

Archive.org site

You can also still view the old www.alphalinux.org website (all of it, including some of the wiki content) using archive.org. The last copy of the old site was on 10th Sep 2014.
