I suppose no one is interested in this now when Mach 3.0 is out ;-),
but here goes anyway.

To make bootstrapping the GNU tools easier I'll take a backup of the
important stuff on my pc532 to nic.funet.fi and make it available for
anonymus ftp (or pseudo-anonymoys ftp for the parts covered by Minix
copyright so they are only available for those who have Minix).

The stuff will be at nic.funet.fi:pub/misc/pc532/jkp-backups.  Only
the README file is there now but I have the files made and only need
to transfer them to nic.

Here's the README file:

This directory contains some backups from j...@cs.hut.fi's pc532
system, taken on 8th February 1991.  The contents of the tars are:

The source to the GNU programs are available ie. at prep.ai.mit.edu
and nic.funet.fi.  Please note that the library as it's in the backup
contains some GNU code in it so if you distribute binaries compiled
with the library you must respect the GPL restrictions.

Finally, these are only my backup files so it might not be very useful
to redistribute them to other ftp sites.  And the ports probably
contain googols of bugs as well, but they've been useful to me.

there is many interesting things down there that i can't
find anywhere else
thank you for your respond

Looks like these were packed up on a SYSV file system or something..
Does someone want to re-do these? A lot of the names are pretty badly
broken..

No, they were packed on the Minix file system.  Sorry, I use currently
a 9600 bps bmodem line as a backup and don't have free disk so it'll
take a while before I get around to installing Minix with NAME_MAX of
62 or something.

Just add -DIFFS to the end of the names if they don't have them,
should be easy to do a shell script to do that.

Reposted-by: e...@ox.com (Edward Vielmetti)

Well, they say that backups are supposed to be in a different
geographical place that the originals, in case something happens to
the original place.  So, I make my backups available for anon. ftp and
perhaps if something happens to Finland I can still find them in
Germany or someplace ..

Appended to this message is the README file from ftp.funet.fi (known
also as nic.funet.fi, they changed the ftp site name again) directory
pub/misc/pc532/jkp-backups.

By the way, I now use GNU binutils for everything, even the kernel.
Works fine.  Took a while to find a problem with gas: it silently
stops reading the input file when it finds a comment line whose first
non-blank character is numerical.  Nice, huh ?

This directory contains backups of j...@cs.hut.fi's pc532 Minix system.
They were taken on Feb 8 1991 and later.

The stuff in the directory 1.3 is for the now obsolete 1.3 version
of pc532 Minix.

The dir 1.5 contains diffs and binaries for the current 1.5.10 / 1.3 kernel
hybrid version of Minix.  The GNU binaries for 1.5 are not there yet,
but perhaps soon.  Note that many of the GNU binaries for 1.3 won't work
with 1.5 kernel because a bit different mechanism for non-blocking IO is
used (at least I think that's the reason).

But anyway, if you have a working environment in your machine the diffs for
gcc, emacs, binutils, gas etc. are all there.  Many of them are not that
clean yet, 'cause I was in a hurry to get a decent environment up,
and suggestions and fixes are welcome.

Copyright notice for the GNU stuff is in the file COPYING.  Sources for the GNU
programs can be found in prep.ai.mit.edu and nic.funet.fi dir pub/gnu, and
many other places as well, see the FTP file in the emacs distribution or
nic.funet.fi:pub/gnu/etc.  Diffs to produce the binaries under this directory
are in the tar files 1.{3,5}/dif*.Z.  Note that you might also need somewhat
changed Minix libraries or kernel - the diffs for the kernel and the include
files (and somewhat obsolete versions for the lib stuff) are in the diff tars.

The library setup I use for myself is different from the original
distribution, so it's not easy to take diffs.  There might be some somewhat
old lib diffs in the diffs tars.

Some of the changes to the library and kernel I'm using:
- FIONREAD for ttys (kernel & lib)
- bumped up many constants
- some fixes for tty SIGINT handling
- some other fixes for ttys

Notably, emacs for 1.5 probably won't work properly without FIONREAD
(and perhaps it also won't work without O_NONBLOCK for 1.3), and ckermit won't
work properly without FIONREAD.  Also, emacs subprocesses (M-x shell and such)
won't work unless you fix the library function fcntl.

I also use the GNU tools whenever they're available (assembler, binutils,
make, bash as /bin/sh, grep, awk etc.) so many installation scripts
and such might not work if you don't have the GNU stuff installed.  GNU
binaries are available for the 1.3 in the dir 1.3, and might soon be for
the hybrid 1.5 as well.

The binaries provided all only for bootstrapping purposes, so when you get
a decent environment it's a good idea to really get the original sources,
apply the diffs and recompile & reinstall everything.  You might not use
the same pathnames for things, emacs binary doesn't contain the info, lisp, etc
directories and so on.

Contents of the 1.3 dir tars, the 1.5 contents should be pretty much
the same, and more.

		       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.
