I am wondering how many people have heard through the grapevine of
my project to port 4.3BSD to the AT.  If you have heard please
drop me a short note on how you found out about the project.

Thanks in advance,

Doug Gilmore

P.S.:  I am sorry I do not have the time give a progress report.  I can
say that a distribution that is usable by those comfortable with
kernel hacking should be ready in several weeks.  The project is a pro
bona effort in the Berkeley Unix tradition.  Your institution will be
able to receive a copy of it if it has a System V.3 license.  There
will most likely be a small distribution fee.

I am putting together an alpha release tape that I will be happy to 
send to those who are willing to help out with the porting 
process.  If you are interested, send me a message and I will
contact you about the details.  Note that the native development 
environment has not been ported yet so you will need to use a VAX 
running 4.2/3BSD for compilation.  At the moment only a driver 
for the Ungermann Bass ethernet card is written though it would 
be straight forward to write drivers for other ethernet boards.  
AT&T licensing restrictions require that your institution be 
licensed for System V release 3.

Only drivers for the hard disk, and an async. port (used as a 
console) have been written.  Also the swapped-based memory 
management code has not been debugged.  The current plan is not 
to put any effort into debugging swapping since a virtual 
segmentation System V kernel will soon be available from 
AT&T/Intel and it seems more reasonble to spend the time 
integrating and debugging that code instead.

		       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 v IBM.
