latest version is 6.01
Read the 6.0 Announcement
twenty-five years of linux_logo!
Here it is, my small Linux claim to fame. A few years back I saw the need
for a text-based logo and sysstem information program for Linux. It started
small, but the e-mail and patches from people around the world have kept me
working at it until it has developed into the program you see today. Feel
free to try it out.
- I released version 6.01 on 12 July 2022.
- I released version 6.0 on 9 May 2020.
- I released version 5.11 on 16 November 2010.
It has a Makefile fix plus a really minor Core2 printing update.
- I released version 5.10 on 19 February 2010.
It rewrites the memory detection code to handle the > 10GB case
better, plus fixes Power6 support.
- I released version 5.09 on 16 February 2010.
It fixes a display bug on machines with more than 100GB
I have created a git development tree with full history
dating back to linux_logo-0.1. It can be found here:
You can check out a version with this command:
git clone git://github.com/deater/linux_logo linux_logo.git
The git tree is based on .tar.gz files from my archives.
Over the years I've lost some early releases.
I'd greatly appreciate if anyone could provide the following:
- Version 0.4 (14 July 1997)
- Version 0.5 (15 July 1997)
- Version 0.6 (16 July 1997)
- Version 1.0 (18 July 1997) -- This was included with
Debian Unstable / Hamm
- Version 1.01 (25 July 1997)
- Version 1.02 (5 August 1997) -- You can see the link
to this on the wayback machine for
http://www.glue.umd.net/~weave/vmwprod/ but no .tar.gz was archived.
Would also be available on any mirror of sunsite.unc.edu from late 1997/
- Version 2.03 (9 July 1998) -- Was a devel release but someone
announced it on freshmeat.
- Version 2.05a/Version 2.05b
- Version 2.06 (13 July 1998)

- (older) "Banner Mode" on my iBook,
- The older "classic" mode still preferred by some people.
I have collected over 1000 "/proc/cpuinfo" files
over the years to test linux_logo with. This must be useful to someone
besides me. The best way to gt them is probably the
git tree from here:
git clone git://github.com/deater/test_proc.git
Here are some pictures of linux_logo running on interesting machines:
