Subject: New files on archives
Date: 5 Jun 92 21:48:13 GMT

I have uploaded the following files to tsx-11.mit.edu:/incoming and to
banjo.concert.net:/pub/Linux/Incoming.  All GNU utility files contain static
binaries, man pages, and a README.linux which tells how to patch the source
to compile under gcc 2.11c.  Some may also contain info files.  All are more
recent than the versions on tsx-11 at the present time.  I had some problems
using some of the older versions (especially gawk), so I recompiled with a
later gcc and with latest GNU versions.


fd-1.6.tar.Z

    This is my Future Domain TMC-1660/TMC-1680 driver.  These are patches
    against 0.96a + Linus' first patch.  NOTE: These patches are *only* for
    the 1660 and 1680.  These are Future Domain's 16bit cards that are for
    16bit ISA busses only.  Future Domain made some cards with 16bit edge
    connectors that would work in PC's and in AT's: THIS DRIVER IS *NOT*
    FOR THOSE CARDS!  Neither is this driver for Future Domain's 16bit
    cards that were introduced earlier this year.  PEASE CHECK YOUR MODEL
    NUMBER BEFORE YOU WASTE YOUR TIME.


bison-1.18bin.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU Bison (a yacc replacement).


fileutl-3.2bin.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU FileUtilities release.  This file contains the
    following utilities: chgrp, chown, chmod, cp, dd, du, install, ln, ls,
    mkdir, mkfifo, mknod, mv, rm, rmdir, and touch.  These file are
    essentially straight GNU versions.  If Linux needs special versions of
    these files, please send me e-mail and explain.  They worked fine in my
    limited tests.


gawk-2.13.2bin.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU Gawk (an awk replacement).


shutil-1.6bin.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU ShellUtilities release.  This file contains the
    following utilities: basename, date, dirname, env, expr, groups, id,
    logname, pathchk, printenv, printf, sleep, tee, test, tty, whoami, yes,
    uname, nice, nohup.  Again, please send e-mail if Linux needs special
    versions of these tools (perhaps for the tty stuff?).  They worked fine
    in my limited tests.


More GNU utilites are on the way. . .

Subject: Recent uploads
Date: 15 Jun 92 13:11:53 GMT

Here is a synopsis of my current uploads: the most recent uploads are
listed first.  Note that some of last weeks uploads (i.e., gawk) fixed
bugs in the currently ftp'able versions.  Please get the latest versions
of the utilities that you use.  Soon, the binaries will be re-compiled
for the ABC Release, but I wanted to make static versions available as
soon as possible.  Please send bug reports to me (faith@cs.unc.edu).

All binaries are linked static with gcc 2.11c.

All bin.tar.Z files contain README.linux, README, COPYING, and other
informational files in addition to stripped binaries and *MAN PAGES* ready
to install into /usr.

The binaries are available from:
banjo.concert.net:/pub/Linux/Incoming and tsx-11.mit.edu

The sources are available from:
banjo.concert.net:/pub/Linux/ABC-Release/src/usr.bin and tsx-11.mit.edu

NOTE: There may be a delay getting these files from tsx-11.mit.edu, but on
banjo they should be available immediately.



Today's uploads:

groff-1.05bin.tar.Z
groff-1.05src.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU groff (a nroff replacement).  This file contains
    the following utilities: addftinfo, afmtodit, geqn, gindxbib, glookbib,
    gpic, grefer, grodvi, groff, grog, grops, grotty, gsoelim, gtbl,
    gtroff, lkbib, pfbtops, psbb, tfmtodit.  The following macro packages
    are included: man, mandoc, mdoc, ms, me, mm, mmse, mps, mpspic, mpsatk,
    mtty, mdvi, and mpic.  Drivers for ascii, postscript, and dvi are

man-1.1a.src.tar.Z

    This is John Eaton's latest man package.  It include man, apropos,
    whatis, and manpath.  It also includes my makewhatis program.  This man
    package is written primarily in C and does not require perl.  (It does
    require groff, gawk, and a few other things--see the README.linux file
    for lots of details.)

Subject: Announcement: GNU Utilitie Recompiled with gcc 2.2.2
Date: 5 Jul 92 14:46:31 GMT


Here is a synopsis of my new uploads, as of Sun Jul  5 09:11:30 1992

Bug reports and comments to: faith@cs.unc.edu

*bin.tar.Z: linked static with gcc 2.2.2 (release version) under 0.96b.pl2
            contain README.linux, README, COPYING, and other information
            contain *MAN PAGES* (even for diff!)
            may contain info files (bison and gawk)
            ready to 'tar zpxvf' into /usr
            NOTE: You will need 0.96b.pl2 OR ABOVE to run these reliably!

*src.tar.Z: source, modified for Linux.  Because of people's suggestions
            regarding my previous uploads, I've made sure that instructions
            for compiling are present in the README.linux file.  In
            general, you do a ./configure and then a make.  I use GNU make
            for everything.  I have /bin/sh linked to /bin/bash (don't use
            ash--it won't work).  Some utilities require other utilities to
            build (like gawk needs bison to build, and bison uses gawk to
            install :-).  The appropriate utilities were compiled with
            -DST_BLOCKS_MISSING, so they will run under 0.96b.pl2.  I'll
            make new versions that use the 0.96c st_blocks support in a
            week or so.

README.linux: These files, contained in both the binary and source tar.Z
              files, contain instructions, comments, locations of current
              and original source, and complete cdiffs against the original
              sources.

The binaries are available from:
banjo.concert.net:/pub/Linux/Incoming (now) and tsx-11.mit.edu (later)

The sources are available from:
banjo.concert.net:/pub/Linux/ABC-Release/src/usr.bin (now)
and tsx-11.mit.edu (later)

Everything is available right now from ftp.cs.unc.edu:/pub/faith/uploads,
but these will be there for a limited time only.  Note that there are also
*sbin.tar.Z files in this directory.  They are identical to the *bin.tar.Z
files, but were linked *dynamic*.  THESE ARE EXPEIMENTAL AND WILL *NOT* BE
SUPPORTED.  They require the gcc 2.2.2 shared libraries, and won't work
with anything else!


utila-1.0bin.tar.Z
utila-1.0src.tar.Z

    This is a random collection of NET-2 source code, including: banner,
    cal, col, colcrt, colrm, column, false, hexdump, od, strings (the
    version that was on tsx-11 has a bug), true, ul, uuencode, uudecode,
    and whereis.  uuencode/uudecode have not been extensively tested, so
    please don't rely on them until you have more confidence in them.
    Please send me bug reports!  NOTE: *STRINGS* AND *OD* ARE HERE!


bison-1.18Bbin.tar.Z
bison-1.18Bsrc.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU Bison (a yacc replacement).  Has info files.


diff-1.15Bbin.tar.Z
diff-1.15Bsrc.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU Diff and Diff3.  I hacked together some man
    pages from the 4.3bsd-reno (NET-2?) distribution and the FSF README
    file.  The man pages aren't pretty, but they seem to have all the
    information.


fileutl-3.2Bbin.tar.Z
fileutl-3.2Bsrc.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU FileUtilities release.  This file contains the
    following utilities: chgrp, chown, chmod, cp, d, dd, df, dir, du,
    install, ln, ls, mkdir, mkfifo, mknod, mv, rm, rmdir, touch, v, and
    vdir.  stty is still missing, BUT DF IS HERE!


find-3.6Bbin.tar.Z
find-3.6Bsrc.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU Find, including find, locate, and xargs.  The
    support for locate (updatedb) is also included (with a patch to fix the
    behavior of tail).


gawk-2.13.2Bbin.tar.Z
gawk-2.13.2Bsrc.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU Gawk (an awk replacement).  Because of a bug in
    the gcc 2.2.2 libraries, extra 0's are sometimes printed (i.e., 400.00
    is printed at 400.0000).  This should be corrected in a future release.
    Info files are included.


groff-1.05Bbin.tar.Z
groff-1.05Bsrc.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU groff (a nroff replacement).  This file contains
    the following utilities: addftinfo, afmtodit, geqn, gindxbib, glookbib,
    gpic, grefer, grodvi, groff, grog, grops, grotty, gsoelim, gtbl,
    gtroff, lkbib, pfbtops, psbb, tfmtodit.  The following macro packages
    are included: man, mandoc, mdoc, ms, me, mm, mmse, mps, mpspic, mpsatk,
    mtty, mdvi, and mpic.  Drivers for ascii, postscript, and dvi are
    included.  [For groff-1.05Bbin.tar.Z, the *old* mdoc macros were
    deleted so that the tar file would be able to fit on a HD floppy disk.]

shutl-1.6Bbin.tar.Z
shutl-1.6Bsrc.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU ShellUtilities release.  This file contains the
    following utilities: [, basename, date, dirname, env, expr, groups, id,
    logname, nice, nohup, pathchk, printenv, printf, sleep, tee, test, tty,
    uname, whoami, yes.

txtutl-1.3Bbin.tar.Z
txtutl-1.3Bsrc.tar.Z

    This is the latest GNU TextUtilities release.  This file contains the
    following utilities: cat, cmp, comm, csplit, cut, expand, fold, head,
    join, nl, paste, pr, sort, split, sum, tac, tail, tr, unexpand, uniq,
    wc.

		       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.
