The PATeam started as a bunch of students from an engineering school in Paris
called ESIEE. The Team is working with the "PA/Linux" group on the PA-RISC Linux
Port project. For a complete history of the PATeam, you can check our
Team History page. And for any question, suggestion
or comment, you may also contact us at any time. On
this website, you will find frequently updated information about
the project, the team and also links to international related websites.
On December 11, 2001 the PA-RISC Linux development community
announced version 0.9.3, which was then the latest version of Linux
for computers using Hewlett Packard's PA-RISC processor. This release was the
last one in a series representing several years of work
by developers in the Free Software community including people from The Debian
Project, Hewlett Packard, ESIEE, and Linuxcare.
Visit the official PA-RISC Linux Site for further information.
Since then, the port has been released as a supported platform by the Debian
Project with the release of Debian 3.0, 3.1, 4.0 and 5.0 for hppa. Check the
HPPA Port page.
Nowadays, the Team is mostly focused on kernel development, especially to get
Linux working on most recent PA-RISC machines.
