The Tenth Platform p10 (Aronia), a new stable branch of ALT repositories, created and developed within the framework of Sisyphus project by ALT Linux Team, is designed to develop, test, distribute, update and support complex solutions at all levels — from embedded devices to enterprise servers and data centers. The Tenth Platform is supported by Basealt SPO LLC.
Architectures supported by the Tenth Planform
Synchronous p10 builds are made for five main architectures:
- 64-bit x86_64, aarch64 and ppc64le
- 32-bit i586, armh (armv7hf)
There is no p10 branch made for the 32-bit mipsel architecture; mipsel is supported in p9 according to the specified terms.
Also, builds are made for these three versions of the proprietary 64-bit "Elbrus" architecture:
- e2k (v3, 4С) and e2kv4 (8С/1С+);
- the new e2kv5 (8СВ).
p10 branching for the e2k architectures is planned for September 2021.
p10 branching for the RISC-V64 architecture is planned for mid-2021.
There are two Realtime kernels built for the x86_64 architecture: Xenomai and Real Time Linux.
OpenUDS — a solution for VDI
OpenUDS is a multiplatform connection broker for virtual desktops and apps administration and deployment. VDI's user selects a template using a browser and, via a client (RDP, X2Go), connects to their desktop on a terminal server or a virtual machine in a cloud OpenNebula.
Expansion of the group policies set
Group policies support gsettings options for managing the Mate and XFCE environments.
Active Directory Management Center
admс is a graphic application for administering users, groups and group policies of Active Directory domains, similar to Remote Server Administration Tools for Microsoft Windows.
Expansion of the deploy platform
The Deploy platform is designed for roles deployment and tuning (e.g. PostgreSQL or Moodle). The following roles were added:
At that, it is possible to change administrator password for the Template:Term, Template:Term and Template:Term roles without having to take care about its internal implementation in this or that web application.
A module for setting up multiseat configuration Alterator-multiseat.
Support for board of devices based on Baikal-M processors

Get started with the Tenth Platform repositories quickly
Those who prefer to independently choose the components of the system and its design, can start working with the new platform using small installation images with different desktop environments. To implement this style of work with the repositories of the Tenth Platform, the starter kits for the x86_64, i586, aarch64, armh architectures have been created and made available (Cinnamon, GNOME, IceWM, KDE5, LXDE, LXQt, MATE, GNUstep, Xfce desktop environments, as well as a minimal installer (JeOS), and a server installer; the options in bold are available in builds for all supported architectures).
The range of starter kits in p10 is expanded with the release of updates that are delivered in a planned quarterly mode (with proper testing). Experimental builds may be found here and in similar subdirectories for other architectures.
