Subject: FAQ, port lists & shoelace

Hello *

        A few questions
1) Has anything been done for a FAQ list as yet?

2) It seems that there may be a little reinventing of the wheel going on
   in terms of porting stuff to linux. Maybe it would be a good idea to
   compile a list of what has been ported so far, by whom, and where it is
   (or patches to the original code) is available from. I guess if noone
   else is willing, I could  do this.

3) I have read about shoelace in the minix newsgroup before, but i only
have
   macminix. Do you need to compile shoelace under minix to get it working
   or can it be compiled under linux? 

enuff for now...

chris.

blum@messua.informatik.rwth-aachen.de keeps such a list.  Send mail to
him for more info.  Stuff regarding Linux can be found at these
anonymous FTP sites: nic.funet.fi, tsx-11.mit.edu, and
tupac-amaru.informatik.rwth-aachen.de.  New files that hit one site
generally hit all three (at least, I try to send binaries that get sent
to tsx-11 to the other two sites, and I try to grab anything new that
gets downloaded to nic.funet.fi and tupac-amaru).  So you should also
try looking at one of the anonymous FTP sites to see if you can just
pick up the binaries.

Hi Linuxers!

Following are some answers to some questions recently mailed:

1) Has anything been done for a FAQ list as yet?

   I am currently developing such a beast, and a LINUX Info sheet is already
   done (mostly). If you are interested in helping with the FAQ, mail me and you
   are on the list....

2) It seems that there may be a little reinventing of the wheel going on
   in terms of porting stuff to linux. Maybe it would be a good idea to
   compile a list of what has been ported so far, by whom, and where it is
   (or patches to the original code) is available from. I guess if noone
   else is willing, I could  do this.

   This list is available as TODO on 
   tupac-amaru.informatik.rwth-aachen.de:/pub/msdos/replace as are all the
   binaries


3) I have read about shoelace in the minix newsgroup before, but i only
have
   macminix. Do you need to compile shoelace under minix to get it working
   or can it be compiled under linux? 

   I remember some patches for shoelace under linux sent out on this list,
   but I didn`t get them
   This leads me to an announcement:
   I think next year I will start another service for LINUX. I will save
   all the postings on the mailing list an make it available via anon ftp,
   perhaps even via a mailserver with the ability to grep for keywords....
   If you like this idea, have other ideas, or have set up such a service
   yourself, please mail me


 See you,

		       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.
