Subject: FTP server changes and a TODO file
Date: Wed, 13 Nov 91 12:28:16 +0100
From: (Robert Blum)

Hi Linuxers!

I currently did some changes to the directory architecture of the FTP server

It contains now the following directories 
doc		Documents concerning Linux, installation etc.
images		The image-Files
binaries	Binaries running under Linux
ofiles		.o files (Currently, the 16-bit things)
installation	Tools for installing Linux (Currently: rawrite)
src/kernel	Sources for the kernel
src/utils	Small utilities, currently fsck

The kernel sources *DO NOT* contain Linus' new buffer.c (accidentally destroyed), 
so be *WARNED*. Using the current images or the current kernel sources for 
building a new kernel *MAY LEAD TO A CORRUPTED FILESYSTEM*

I hope Linus mails me the new sources and images as soon as V0.11 is available,
since I currently have no possibility to build a kernel. There are occuring
to much problems with the non-ANSI c386, but this bist is currently migrating to
ANSI, so things will change, I hope. (Other way to change would be to upgrade
to a 4Meg-Machine, but this would leave all those 2Meg freaks alone...).
Last way for c386 is the ansi2k&r converter, but to use this thing, Linus must
remove all inline-assembler from the includes, so I am waiting for his answer.
In the meantime: has someone some real mean ANSI-Prototypes to test the
prototypes implemented in c386?

Now, following is a first version of a TODO-File which is also available
at tupac-amaru (pub/msdos/replace is the linux-dir, BTW). I am awaiting your

OK, see you

This files contains the status of several tools for Linux

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
