Recently, the Huawei released the openEuler source code, a distribution Linux based on CentOS. As many had predicted, the openEuler source code is not available to Github but at Gitee, a Chinese alternative to Github.
There are two elements to the openEuler Linux distribution source:
The first is the source code, which is used to store the source code.
The second is the package source, which is used to store software packages to build the operating system.
Huawei has introduced two specific packages in its blogpost, iSulad and A-Tune. ISulad is a lightweight runtime based on gRPC services and is written in C. Its interfaces are OCI compatible and will be used for infrastructure and production and Cloud.
A-Tune, on the other hand, is a system software that automatically optimizes it system adaptable to multiple scripts with built-in AI-engine.
In addition, Huawei says it has built these systems in the Huawei Cloud through script automation.
Currently, there are about 1.000 software packages in Gitee, each offering ARM64 and x86 architecture versions.
How to download openEuler Linux Distribution?
If you would like to try openEuler, you can download the distribution from Huawei's official site. However, the instructions may be difficult for you as they are not yet available in English.
It seems that the distribution of openEuler is intended more for fanatical Linux fans and not so much for those who work as a hobby. All that's left to see now is how openEuler will be able to compete with other Linux distributions.
