Welcome to the BSDI ported software list!  Its purpose is to give
information about net software that has been ported to  or that is known to 
compile without modificaton on the BSDI BSD/386 system.  I am also attempting
to list the current patches and enhancements that are available.  This 
list will be posted on a monthly basis unless the demand is greater.  

This list and some of the software packages or patches mentioned here
are archived on bsdi.com.  I have also been saving the postings to the
beta list since it was started and have made them available too.  See
the archive section for specifics on the bsdi.com archive.  The gamma 
mailing list is also being archived and will be placed on bsdi.com.

The list is split into four sections.  Section 1 describes the software 
packages from the net that have been ported to the BSDI system.  These are
packages that had to be worked with to make them functional under BSDI.  The
changes necessary are variable from "easy" on up.  The second section is
for software that compiles on BSDI without code modifications.  It appears 
that several X applications fall into this area at the moment.  Section 3
will be for enhancements and patches written specifically for the BSDI
system such as new drivers or BSDI system patches.  Section 4 lists
the current archive sites for public BSDI patches, ports and enhancements.
This version of the list uses "Subject:" headings for each of the
sections to make it easier to go directly to each section with most
common newsreaders.

Please contact me if you have any corrections, suggestions, or
contributions to the list.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  Bnews
VERSION:  
DESCRIPTION: 
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: t...@usblues.rt.com
AVAILABILITY: 
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: Pretty straight forward.  System is missing ftime, so a
compatibility function had to be written.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME: elm
VERSION:
DESCRIPTION: Full screen mailing interface.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: t...@usblues.rt.com
AVAILABILITY: 
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
REQUIRES: 
NOTES:  BSD toupper/tolower are broken.  Elm supplies versions which
can be used.  Or you can fix the one's in libc like I did.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  pcomm                                 
VERSION: 
DESCRIPTION: Communications package.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: t...@usblues.rt.com
AVAILABILITY: 
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: Some ioctl's had to be changed.  Nothing big, if I recall. 
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME: xviewgl 
VERSION: 
DESCRIPTION: 
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: t...@usblues.rt.com
AVAILABILITY: 
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: 	Found a bug in libc.a in fgetpos.  Once this was fixed
everything worked fine.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  SB Prolog
VERSION:  3.1
DESCRIPTION: Freeware Prolog interpreter with docs. 
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: Doug Dyer/dd...@afit.af.mil
AVAILABILITY: Anonymous ftp via cs.arizona.edu for this version.  
STATE OF PORT/CODE: Everything works as far as I can tell.  
REQUIRES: I had to change a few things.  I can send mail to anyone
interested.  
NOTES:  None
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  CLIPS (C Language Integrated Production System)
VERSION:  5.0
DESCRIPTION: A rule-based, forward-chaining expert system shell
patterned after OPS 5, ART.  CLIPS also includes the CLIPS
Object-Oriented Language (COOL).  CLIPS was developed by NASA/Johnson
and is widely used.  
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: Doug Dyer/dd...@afit.af.mil
AVAILABILITY:  Oddly, it may be available via anonymous ftp (see note
below).  Otherwise, it is free to NASA, USAF, and their contractors.
Others can purchase CLIPS in source form from COSMIC, NASA's
commercial software developer.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: Everything works as far as I can tell.  
REQUIRES: No brains, anyway.  Changing a line or two in the makefile.
NOTES:  Recently, Brian Donnell at NASA posted the following news item:

"If you are an employee of or contractor to NASA or USAF, you may obtain
CLIPS ...<stuff deleted>...  You may redistribute to NASA and USAF
employees and <contractors>.

Everyone else must purchase CLIPS from COSMIC.  However, once you have
purchased CLIPS, you may do anything you want with it, including redistribute
it by posting it for anonymous FTP.  Thus, a copy of CLIPS which can trace
its ultimate origins to a copy purchased from COSMIC may be freely distributed.
However, we at NASA are not allowed to do this."

Therefore, it seems that anyone who has purchased CLIPS can
effectively place it in the public domain.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  bash
VERSION:  1.12
DESCRIPTION: FSF's `Bourne Again SHell', including everything but
the kitchen sink.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: grog%...@Germany.EU.Net
AVAILABILITY: When I have the people at unido accept incoming uucp 
              transfers, I'll put it there. Diffs also available for
	      the asking.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: I've been using it for 6 weeks, and have found no
bugs.
REQUIRES: (nothing special)
NOTES:  (none)
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  emacs
VERSION:  18.57
DESCRIPTION: This is available as a standard product, of course. This
version has enhanced support for keyboards under X. Includes the
kitchen sink.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: grog%...@Germany.EU.Net
AVAILABILITY: When I have the people at unido accept incoming uucp 
              transfers, I'll put it there. Diffs also available for
	      the asking.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: I've been using it for 6 weeks, and have found no
bugs.
REQUIRES: (nothing special)
NOTES:  (none)
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  iozone
VERSION:  1.08
DESCRIPTION: Displays neatly table of disk performance
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: p...@rus.uni-stuttgart.de
AVAILABILITY: No. I'm not sure whether binaries or sources
		are more popular ? Or both ?
STATE OF PORT/CODE: ready
REQUIRES: -
NOTES:  Added an #define bsd4_2 to include sys/time.h
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  Screen
VERSION:  3.2
DESCRIPTION: Provides multiple sessions on one connection, works
		over almost any line. Replacement for missing virtual
		terminals.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: p...@rus.uni-stuttgart.de, bsdi stuff was already defined
AVAILABILITY: ftp.uni-stuttgart.de:/soft/kommunikation/news/tmp/screen*
STATE OF PORT/CODE: works ok, has problems with characters missing etc.
		but is useable.
REQUIRES: 
NOTES:  It did not compile out of the box, some problems with signals.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  elvis
VERSION:  1.5
DESCRIPTION: good replacement for vi
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: p...@rus.uni-stuttgart.de
AVAILABILITY: no, same as above
STATE OF PORT/CODE: I use it since two weeks, better then the older
		elvis, had to modify prsvunix.c (extern getpwuid
		is ansified and needs to be correct)
REQUIRES: -
NOTES:  wonderful, the visual mark facility !
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  less
VERSION:  170 (hmm, isnt it supposed to be 177 ?)
DESCRIPTION: replacement for more
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: p...@rus.uni-stuttgart.de
AVAILABILITY: no.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: it works, better then the supplied more 8)
REQUIRES: -
NOTES:  it requires to include <regexp.h> and define REGCOMP in search.c
	to work properly, but the linstall does not recognize this.
	I don't think the REGCOMP support was ever tested.
        [ Janet Jackson <ja...@cs.uwa.edu.au> and t...@usblues.rt.com 
          (Tom Markson) both also report less compiled and working.  
          Janet's notes follow below. ]
REQUIRES: regex.c as provided by James da Silva <jds%cs.UMD.EDU>, if
     you want to use regexps.  I compiled regex.c into a local library
     file in /usr/local/lib, which I included with -L in less's Makefile.
     NO CHANGES TO THE CODE OF less ITSELF.
NOTES:  when run on console using the standard terminal type (pc3, I think)
     less complains that the terminal can't scroll backwards.  This complaint
     could probably be turned off by compiling with a lower level of help
     messages.
-----
 SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  ISODE
 VERSION:  7.0, and 8.0
 DESCRIPTION: The ISO Developers Environment which provides upper
         layer support for OSI applications and includes an X.500
         implementation.  ISODE can use the ISO and CCITT socket
         families if the appropreate hardware and drivers are
         installed in your system (this is untested).
 YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: hunt...@glarp.com
 AVAILABILITY: The ISODE version 7.0 is P/D, bug quite huge.
         8.0 is available from misc.glarp.com [128.138.240.101]
         [ The isode 8.0 patches are now also available from bsdi.com.
           in the directory /bsdi.sw/sw/gamma/app.patches.  SMM ]
 STATE OF PORT/CODE: The diff's were minimal.  I would have to pull
         the source off of backup tapes and run diff if anyone needs
         them.  The compiled installation (libraries, include files,
         the 'quipu' X.500 server, SNMP agent, etc) can be made
         available easily.
         8.0 fails some of the tests for psap echo and psap isode/echo
         but dish and quipu appear to work at first glance.
 REQUIRES: The encumbered version of lex is needed to compile the package.
         Flex chokes.
 NOTES [8.0]: When compiling, be sure to "unlimit" all resource limits
	related to virtual memory size.  It takes alot of space to
	compile some of the pieces.

	Among these patches, are patches to the lex code which
	allow it to be compiled with "flex" (gnu version of lex)
	which is now the standard lex shiped with BSD.

	Since gcc pays meticulous attention to function prototypes
	it was nessesary to blast some of the redundant and errant
	external function delcaration statments.

	setenv() takes 3 arguments under BSD not 2.  A #define
	solved the problem.  Similarly, dirent(3) was disabled
	since it comes built in to BSD386.

	The file system queary calls in snmp/unixFs.c were adapted
	to the new 4.4BSD getfsstat() and fsstat() interfaces.

A few incompatible tweeks were made.  "mkdirhier" takes the place
of "mkdir" in the top leval Makefile for making make-dirs.
-----
 SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  PP
 VERSION:  6.0
 DESCRIPTION: A Message Transfer Agent capable of handling X.400,
         SMTP, and other protocols.
 YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: hunt...@glarp.com
 AVAILABILITY: PP-6.0 is P/D
 STATE OF PORT/CODE: Like ISODE, there were minimal changes.
 REQUIRES: The encumbered version of lex may be needed to compile
         this package.  ISODE-6.0 is also required.
 NOTES:  
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  
        	MetaFont et al.
	        TeX, LaTeX et al.
        	bash 1.12
	        dvips 5.47 (I think)
	        emacs 18.58 (with X11 support)
	        flex (dont know which version, latest from prep)
	        ghostscript 2.4 + ghostview
	        gtar 1.10
	        kermit 5A(179) BETA (newer than the one in contrib)
	        sc (spreadsheet)
	        screen ("virtual console" via ptys)
	        shar
	        xcal (x calendar)
VERSION:  See above.
DESCRIPTION: 
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: Bernhard...@physik.tu-muenchen.de
AVAILABILITY: 
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: If you need more information about any of these packages drop
me a mail.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  minicom
VERSION:  1.2pl1
DESCRIPTION: Communications package.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: s...@acd4.acd.com ( Steve McCoole )
AVAILABILITY: Can do some limited mailing of diffs.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: Working well, one real bug.
REQUIRES: 
NOTES:  There is a status indicator on the bottom of the screen.  If
the program thinks that the modem is on-line, scrolling does not work
properly.  I'm looking for the problem.  The work-around right now is
to use the hang up command as soon as you enter the program and it
works fine after that.  I had to comment out a SIG_IGN call for 
SIGTINT and initialize some variables before they were used in
wkeys.c.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  nethack
VERSION:  3.0 pl 10
DESCRIPTION: Character based adventure game.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: s...@acd4.acd.com ( Steve McCoole )
AVAILABILITY: Can do some limited mailing of diffs.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
REQUIRES: 
NOTES:  Had to put an int definition for sprintf in the nethack
system.h file under BSD.  Had to add the following define to
unixtty.c:
#ifdef bsdi
#define GTTY(x)         (ioctl(0, TIOCGETP, (char *)x))
#define STTY(x)         (ioctl(0, TIOCSETP, (char *)x))
#endif
The rest of the config was basically generic BSD.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  
	ImakeTeX (TeX 3.14 & LaTeX) and MetaFont from labrea
	xfig (R5)
	ghostscript 2.4 (X & epson)
	ghostview 1.1
	xdvi
	dvi2ps 2.31
	transfig ( from R5)
	zsh 2.2
	tcsh 6.01
	gnutar 1.09
	bison 1.14
	flex 2.3
	mg 2a
	gnu-fgrep 1.0
VERSION:  See above.
DESCRIPTION: Various ported software.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: p...@xs0001.at (Peter Pflaeging)
AVAILABILITY: I've got no Internet access (only UUCP) so it would be
great to see an archive server (preferable in Europe) where I can mail
my binary set.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
	I've got BSD/386 running since one week. This ported software
	are the tools I'm using normally. Though - I've compiled it and
	they work - but I don't know if they are really stable. I
	haven't seen a bug since the porting.
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: 
Tips for people who want to port:

Normally the software to port ask for an operating system:
	First hint is BSD4.3 or BSD4.4. One of the differences is:
	386/BSD is POSIX compliant. Though look for the switch -D_POSIX_SOURCE
One of the most amusing facts is that prototypes for library functions
are in 386/BSD headers. Sometimes you must delete the prototypes from
the source of the programs (a good way to look for software quality).
X-software is very easy to port. Normally xmkmf -a produces a good
Makefile.

Problems:

The only hard problem I've is: web2c from labrea doesn't work, because
either lex or yacc are producing fals C-source. So I've made the first
step (generating C-source) on an ULTRIX 4.2 machine. Then I compiled
the suite under BSD/386. I will test this with flex and bison again.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME: ups
DESCRIPTION: X11 based source level C debugger.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: m...@ukc.ac.uk (Mark Russell)
AVAILABILITY: Soon - it is being tested by a few people now.  I will
	      make it available by anonymous FTP in the next week or so.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: Alpha test - it has not yet been used other than by me.
REQUIRES: Access to X server (either on the PC itself or elsewhere).
NOTES:
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  tcsh
VERSION: 6.02
DESCRIPTION: a popular csh-derived shell with line editing and other
bells&whistles. 
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: John Kohl <jtk...@kolvir.elcr.ca.us>
AVAILABILITY: pick it up from tesla.ee.cornell.edu:/pub/tcsh/tcsh-6.02.tar.Z
STATE OF PORT/CODE: complete.
REQUIRES: disk space :-)
NOTES: [ p...@xs0001.at (Peter Pflaeging) also reports a working port
of tcsh, but his version is 6.01 ]

If you have X11 installed, you can just run this to configure it before
building:
	imake -DUseInstalled -DConfigH="bsd4.4" -I/usr/X11/lib/X11/config

Otherwise, edit as directed in README and select bsd4.4 as the system
type.

tcsh-6.02 compiles fine out-of-the-box, but to have a useful
$HOSTTYPE you need to add the attached patch.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  sc
VERSION:  6.21
DESCRIPTION: Spreadsheet calculator--your basic spreadsheet.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: John T Kohl <jtk...@kolvir.elcr.ca.us>
AVAILABILITY: Pick it up from any comp.sources.unix archive, Volume 23
(e.g. ftp.uu.net:/usenet/comp.sources.unix/volume23/sc6.8/*)
STATE OF PORT/CODE: Runs fine.  Just compile & install!
NOTES:  You'll need to configure the Makefile; should be straightforward
(look at the stuff marked 'reno' for most of it) 
[ Bernhard...@physik.tu-muenchen.de also has this package
working, version is not known.  ]
[ Janet Jackson <ja...@cs.uwa.edu.au> has this package working at
version 6.21, her notes are below. ]
SC (spreadsheet) has a bunch of patches that you probably want to
pick up with the sources.  The details:
Sc appears in comp.sources.misc as:
      v20i035-v20i041 sc/part01-7     original   (Sc6.16)
      v22i095   sc/patch01a           Patch01a/2
      v22i096   sc/patch01b           Patch01b/2 (6.16->6.17)
      v22i104   sc/patch02            Patch02    (6.17->6.18)
      v23i035   sc/patch03            Patch03    (6.18->6.19)
      v24i020	sc/patch04a	      Patch04a/2
      v24i021	sc/patch04b	      Patch04b/2 (6.19->6.21)
STATE OF PORT/CODE [Janet]:
My machine has no math coprocessor.  To cope with a floating-point
emulation bug, I have made minor changes.  Everywhere (I hope!) that          
0.0 is used as a double, I have replaced it with (double)0,                   
because 0.0 gets treated as NaN.  This meant, for example,                    
that a cell entered as "0.25" would become NaN!                               
The only other bug I've noticed is that the row numbers are sometimes         
messed up when you scroll the screen.                                         
NOTES [Janet]:
I had to configure the Makefile.                                              
I can supply my Makefile and patches for the C files if people want them.     
I have also written a thing called sc-extract (and sent it to the             
comp.sources.unix moderator, who has not yet processed it) for doing links    
between spreadsheets using sc's external function mechanism.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  XLISP-PLUS 
VERSION:  2.1d
DESCRIPTION: Common Lisp-like (getting closer!) interpreter.
Originally developed by David Michael Betz for the PC, this version was
significantly revised by Tom Almy and others.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: dd...@afit.af.mil
AVAILABILITY: Original 2.1d sources are ftpable from
 			glia.biostr.washington.edu	128.95.10.115
			bikini.cis.ufl.edu		128.227.224.1
STATE OF PORT/CODE: I've not tested completely, nor eliminated all
compiler warnings, but things I have tried work fine and the
documentation is good.
REQUIRES: Minor changes
NOTES:  I will respond to email if anyone has problems.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  Gnu sed 
VERSION:  1.08
DESCRIPTION: 
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: Larry Jones <scj...@thor.sdrc.com>
AVAILABILITY:  [ This is one of the things that I'm looking to send to
one of the archive sites if they don't already have it. ]
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: 
A number of people have complained about sed being defective.  I finally
got some time to look into it and fix it.  In a nutshell, the way sed
was handling subprograms ('{' and '}') was completely wrong.  I've sent
the fixes to GNU, but I thought people here would appreciate having the
fixed version, so I'm sending this shar.
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  epoch
VERSION:  ??
DESCRIPTION: Enhanced X only version of emacs. 
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL:  RWAL...@cs.tcd.ie
AVAILABILITY: nic.funet.fi [ And most other gnu archives. ]
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
                a poor executable, which does not do:
                a) save / dump to disk, so loadup.el has to run every time..
                b) fork processes (e.g. TeX on region) -> it dumps core
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: Problems that I have not had time to track down yet.
       [ There is now a version available on bsdi.com that comes
         from Jeff Polk and is stable.  It is included in the
         gamma/production release.  SMM ]
-----
SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  gcc
VERSION:  2.1
DESCRIPTION: GNU C and C++ compilers
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: an...@lajax.pp.fi (Antti-Pekka Virtanen)
AVAILABILITY: nic.funet.fi
              ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/gnu
STATE OF PORT/CODE: there are both ready to run binaries and sources. 
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: 
The bsd386 binary package contains also libg++-2.0 library binaries.
I am sorry but I lost my libg++-2.0 sources due to an archive error, but
at least the library seems to work okay. The compressed libg++.a file
is the original one directly from the sources. The current library I use
has a few bug-fixes which were needed to get InterViews 3.0.1 run.
(I will provide my InterViews 3.0.1 binaries/sources if there is interest.)

I hope these will make you happy! But ofcource I cannot promise anything
to work and I don't provide any support. If you have fixes , please send
them also to me.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  InterViews
VERSION:  3.0.1
DESCRIPTION: X based document package, WYSIWYG editor and drawing
             package.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: an...@lajax.pp.fi (Antti-Pekka Virtanen)
AVAILABILITY: nic.funet.fi
[128.214.6.100] in directory ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/X11/InterViews.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
I hope this is enough to make InterViews compile on your machine.
I have only used doc document-editor so I cannot say if the other
clients work. At least doc seems to work allright.
REQUIRES: 
To compile this you will need Gcc 2.1 and libg++-2.0 or later
which will have some fixes in the iostream library. You can 
use the Gcc 2.1 and libg++-2.0 binaries available in nic.funet.fi
under ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/gnu.
NOTES: 
There has been some questions of what this InterViews is...

You will find attached some information which I cut out from
one document (you can find the full papers in interviews.stanford.edu)

I myself use only the sample client "doc" which is a simple
WYSIWYG document editing tool. It stores it's files as LaTeX-like
format and outputs postscript for printing. You can also include
pictures and draw them with the sample application idraw.

eventually hang the system or dump core.  I haven't yet had time to go into 
this, and it's a bit of a pain to debug, since there's a background daemon
running that's probably responsible.  Please e-mail me if you find anything.

DESCRIPTION:  Public key encryption system based on RSA and DES.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: t...@usblues.rt.com
AVAILABILITY: A bit complicated to get.  It falls under US Export regulation
	      since its crypto code.  Further, It also contains proprietary 
	      code from RSA, Inc. which has licensed it free for 
	      "personal" use within the US and Canada.  So, you can:
			1. try rsa.com
			2. try alt.security.ripem

STATE OF PORT/CODE: completed
REQUIRES:
NOTES:  Required some makefile hacking. Pretty neat though.  And legal to use
	within the US.  There is a version available for ftp which does not
	contain crypto code and therefore does not fall under the US export
	restrictions.  But trying to get this to work may be the equivilant
	of trying to get 'ls' working without any system calls.

	faster and smoother than "xc".  It doesn't have as many bugs as xc.
	It does a better job on zmodem xfers than xc.  It wouldn't work as
	setuid uucp, so I had to make it setuid root.  Just changing spool

Tom Markson <t...@usblues.rt.com>
Recently, Kenji Okamoto posted his diffs for Ingres89 to comp.unix.bsd.  
I applied those diffs, tweaked a couple of Makefiles and was able to get
Ingres89 running remarkably well.  

I have sent two files to bsdi.com: ingres89.tar.Z and Ingres.diff.Z.  
ingres89.tar.Z is the original Berkeley ingres code with Kenji's diffs 
applied plus my makefile tweaks.  Ingres.diff.Z consists of only Kenji's diffs.
If you get ingres89.tar.Z, you do not need to pick up Ingres.diff.Z.

I stuck both in the sw/gamma/progs directory.  I did this for two reasons:
                 1) it was one of the only places I had write permission.
		 2) I have only tested this against gamma.

Since Kenji's diffs were for 386BSD, I don't suppose beta should have any
problem whatsoever.  I added a README.bsdi file to ingres89.tar.Z which 
describes what the tar file consists of and tells you how I ported it.  
Basically, with the tar file, you should have to type make and very little 
else.

It is impressive seeing a relational database running under BSD/386.  Amaze
your friends!   Perhaps the BSDI people may want to think about packaging
this in as standard software (or at least sticking it in an unsupported
directory!)

I've been using it for about a week and have found only 2 bugs (both minor).
One is an Embedded QUEL/C bug and another is creating a secondary index with
six columns (five works fine. Six SEGV's).

Oh, yes,  I am looking at postgres right now and have found really only two
major problems:  1) Lack of shared memory (this can be fixed with those kernel
hacks, I know).  2) Lack of System V Semaphores.   If anyone has a good 
solution to this one, please let me know.

I made a small modification to the kernel source file
i386/isa/pccons.c to allow
SCO-style terminal escapes to change colors on a character-mode screen, for
those of us who haven't gotten X to work yet. The escape sequences are:
ESC[=nF - set normal foreground color to n
ESC[=nG - set normal background color to n
ESC[=nH - set reverse video foreground color to n
ESC[=nI - set reverse video background color to n
where n is one of the following:
0 - black	1 - blue	2 - green	3 - cyan
4 - red		5 - magenta	6 - brown	7 - white
8 - gray	9 - light blue	10 - lt green 	11 - lt cyan
12 - lt red	13 - lt magenta	14 - yellow	15 - hi white
For the background settings, colors 8-15 are the same as 0-7, and the 0x8 bit
turns on blinking (at least on my hardware). This can be changed by
reprogramming the meaning of the bit in the hardware, but I haven't done that
yet. Kent Peacock <kentp@svmp03>

I have a new version of the console terminal emulator code (kernel pccons.c)
with a number of changes from various beta sites, as well as some fixes
that I have made and a lot of cleanup.  It is based on fixes from
John Haugen for the PS/2 machines and the code from Dirk Husemann
to do (most of) the German keyboard stuff using the ALT key(s).
It does not (yet?) have Greg Lehey's code for German multiple-key
sequences.  The current tables use ALT as a meta key except where
it is used for alternate characters.

Because the files are moderately large, I have put them out for
anonymous FTP from liberty.BSDI.COM for the moment; they are in
/hidden/pccons.shar.  I will mail them on request to folks
without FTP access, and will mail them now those who have already
requested them.

I think it fixes these problems:

o left and right shift, control and alt keys are recognized separately,
  and it correctly deals with pressing both keys and then releasing one.

o it recognizes extended-keyboard keys separately from the main keyboard
  (or keypad) equivalents (this was needed for right control and alt).
  As a result, arrow keys and editing keypad keys no longer produce digits.

o The arrow keys are now supported.

o The num lock key is recognized and used, and the keypad produces numbers
  only when num lock is on.  Num lock is set at initialization.

o the normal, standout and kernel foreground/background colors are settable
  by SCO-compatible escape sequences (from Kent Peacock), and the cursor
  can be changed to a block cursor.

o a problem resulting in reentrance of sput is fixed, and output reordering
  problems that resulted seem to be fixed.  A side effect may be that
  more of the output processing, including scrolling, will be done
  at base priority rather than spltty.  (This may help reduce silo
  overflows on machines where the console is in use but X is not.)

o a lot of the code has been cleaned up, and even uses manifest constants
  for many of the magic numbers (not yet all)

o no longer crashes when cursor addressing, etc. are out of range

o the cursor is kept in sync during most kernel output (during autoconfig,
  for kernel input, etc.)


At least the following are not yet fixed:

o recognition of the stupid pause key code sequence (it still toggles num lock)

o function keys, arrow keys, still do nothing useful, although the keys
  are recognized and they can now be defined to produce a string.
  Similarly for numeric keypad keys when num-lock is not set.
  I don't know what these keys should send.

o the standalone kbd.c has not been converted yet; I compile it using
  the old pcconstab.* files for now.


Notes on the new escape sequences:

Color codes:

0 - black	1 - blue	2 - green	3 - cyan
4 - red		5 - magenta	6 - brown	7 - white

For foreground, the following "intense" color variants are available.
(In background, these set the corresponding value above plus the blinking
attribute.)

8 - gray	9 - light blue	10 - lt green 	11 - lt cyan
12 - lt red	13 - lt magenta	14 - yellow	15 - hi white

ESC[=nF - set normal foreground color to n (default white)
ESC[=nG - set normal background color to n (default black)
ESC[=nH - set reverse video foreground color to n (default black)
ESC[=nI - set reverse video background color to n (default white)
ESC[=nK - set kernel foreground color to n (default hi white, had been yellow)
ESC[=nL - set kernel background color to n (default blue)

ESC[1_  - set block cursor
ESC[0_  - set underscore cursor

I believe the below patch fixes at least 2 bugs from the bug list (#455 and
???) .  The second one I turned in the other day but forgot the auto-response
number.

Hopefully it won't create any new ones.  :-)

This patch fixes the problems:

- 'kill -HUP 1' did not respawn a job if you've changed its command line.
- init restarted too fast (I stuck in 2 second pause before job spawning)
- init respawned a job too fast after it was respawning too fast.  I split
	one define into two.

Let me know if I've done something bad here but our system has been up for
hours (and numerous kill -HUP 1 calls) with no problems.

Also, the logout.patch from the patch directory that I applied, generate tons
of "can't register logout..." messages (1 for each time a job restarted) so I
removed the else and the warning.  Anyone else have this problem?

(GAMMA) Recently I purchased a Longshine LCS-8880 el-cheapo 4-port serial card
from Altex Electronics for about $75 plus shipping.  The card has a single DB37
on the back panel with a cable that fans out to four male DB25 connectors, has
socketted 16450-style UARTs (easy to swap out for 16550's if needed), and in
general looks like pretty solid hardware.

It supports two address ranges, 0x1a0-0x1bf, or 0x2a0-0x2bf in the 'enhanced'
mode where all four ports share one interrupt line, which can be 2/9,3,4,5,6,7.

We aquired a used DEC hard drive which did not seem to spin up at all.
After digging around an Ultrix system, we discovered that the drive
needed a START_UNIT command to get it going.  Here is a fix for the
scsi/sd.c driver which will issue a start unit upon boot (only to a
DEC drive at this moment.  Issueing the start unit did not
cause problems for other drives, so I think the DEC compare can be
safely removed).  If anyone else is having trouble getting unknown drives
to spin-up this will probably fix the problem.

I can't live without my 8 port serial card, so I quickly hacked
gamma 0.9 com.c to support it with my generic multiport modifications.

While testing the bidirectional line usage, I discovered a bug, at
least in my opinion, in the DCD detection (fix included).

This version isn't as robust as the latest stuff I had for beta 0.3.3,
but it works. Also, something is interfering with the bidirectional
line usage.

(Sorry about posting this to both gamma and beta lists, but I wasn't
sure if a gamma list exists)

You have to add something along the lines of the following to your config
file:

# COM ports
# APT HSS08 multi-port serial card
device		com0	at isa? port 0x100
device		com1	at isa? port 0x108
device		com2	at isa? port 0x110
device		com3	at isa? port 0x118
device		com4	at isa? port 0x120
device		com5	at isa? port 0x128
device		com6	at isa? port 0x130
device		com7	at isa? port 0x138

The HSS08 shares one IRQ for all the ports, so I get warnings about
conflicting IRQs from the autoconfigurator during boot, but it works.

I also added:
    stty -f /dev/com0 clocal
    stty -f /dev/com1 clocal
    ...

to my /etc/rc.local, so things would stop blocking unexpectedly.

The distributed new sed is unable to compile regular expressions
like this one (occuring frequently in GNU configure scripts, found
this one from the gdb 4.7 configure)

s/^[-a-z_]*=//

The problem is with the first character in the [] character set.
Traditional sed (BSD 4.3) allows a single - to be treated as a
ordinary character.

As sed uses the regex stuff in libcompat, I fixed it to allow
this syntax in /usr/src/lib/libcompat/regcomp.c See the case
that was removed by #ifdef notdef

This problem also exists in the libc regexp version. But as
I do not know what POSIX has to say about this syntax, I haven't
bothered to fix it there too.

If you are running version 8.9 of Ingres on BSD/386, you may have noticed
some problems with the locking deamon.  The biggest problem, which I fixed,
is that the ingreslock program is using older semantics for select.  They
used long's with select instead of fd_set's so select gets horribly
confused.  I assume this is a relic of the days when the second parameter
to select was just an int.

Anyway, I removed the bit fiddling and changed all of the manipulations to
their correct FD_XXX counterparts.  Plus, I initialized a table that 
seemed to need it (maybe it didn't, but it doesn't to hurt!)

If you have picked up ingres89.tar.Z from bsdi.com or applied the 
Ingres.diff file sent there, just:

	cd /usr/ingres/source/support (or your source area/support)
	patch -p <this_file

I have found a couple of other changes from the Lynix port. I'll be posting
those very soon:

Below is a shar archive with the necessary changes for BSDI.  They
has been tested on gamma 1 and gamma 3.  I do not know if they will
work on the beta release.
To configure and compile smail, you will need to install a current version
of bash as /bin/sh.  The shipped version of /bin/sh (ash) will not work,
and neither will older versions of bash.  Also, at least on gamma 1, you will
need to create the file mkdriv.perl by running mkdriv.awk through
a2p (awk to perl).  THe makefile shipped with smail3-28 will then know
to do the right thing.

Third, I wrote a new getopt for perl.  I was hoping a few people here
might like to test it before I post it to comp.lang.perl, to sniff out
any bugs I may have missed.  What distinguishes it from the getopts
provided with perl is that you can specify the variable the command-line
option affects.  Additionally, you can have simple flags, options that
take single arguments, or options that take multiple arguments.

These are changes to GDB 4.7 in order to support it for
BSD/386 from BSDI. Unfortunately, because BSDI uses a new
a.out format (magic number 0314) it is kind of difficult to
merge it into the 386BSD support without pain. So these
changes adds the configuration option 'i386-unknown-bsdi'.
NOTE:  Does not support kernel debugging!

I got tired of the autorepeating Caps/Num/Scroll Lock keys and tried to do
something about it. The console keyboard handling is fixed easy enough, but
the X server uses the raw scancodes from the keyboard and needs to be fixed
as well. Since I use the ATI Graphics Ultra X server I can't fix this myself.
A crude patch to disable autorepeating "Lock" keys in the console driver is
included later in this mail.

Several folks have run into problems with the new bidirectional modem

that was integrated into gamma.4.  We have a package of fixes that should
make things work correctly with getty, tip, uucp and kermit, courtesy
of Pace Willison.  I have included the source patches in this message as

The changes in the latest SCSI tape driver (gamma-4) that increased
the size of all buffers used for a scsi mode sense command upto 128
was not such a good idea.
It completely broke tape support for EISA 174x host adapters.
The problem is that first a mode sense command is used to fill
the buffer, then something is modified and the same buffer is
then passed to the mode select function. But the length passed
is sizeof buffer (always 128) instead of the ACTUAL length of
the buffer. This causes a data underrun error on the 1740 host
adapter that I use.

We have had problems finding a spot for the ne2000.  The problem in gamma4
is that it is blocked by the lp0/pe0 device on the standard LPT1 address
of 0x378 (ne0 is 360-37f).  If the parallel port is present, ne0 will
not configure.  The problem is that every reasonable address conflicts
with some standard device/address.  Here are the main current choices:

	300	conflicts with wt0
	320	conflicts with aha0
	340	conflicts with mcd0
	360	conflicts with lp0/pe0

The plan for production is to add an mcd0 configuration at 334, allowing
ne0 to work at 340.  I also plan to include an ne0 configuration at 320,
as lots of people are using that (with no Adaptec 154x, of course).
I have included diffs for the GENERIC config file in /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
for anyone who would like to test this.  Note that the ne0 config at
320 is not particularly safe if an Adaptec is present without the patches
I posted for if_ne.c last week.  (It doesn't appear that neprobe would
hit the Adaptec registers, but I am not certain.)

As distributed, the gamma.4 slattach program doesn't exit when it's
slip line is droped.  The problem is that the process waiting for
HUP's has not issued a TIOCSCTTY to make it's controlling tty the
slip line;  hence no HUP's are delivered when the carrier detect
drops.

The following patch to /usr/src/sbin/slattach/slattach.c solves
this problem:

I gave a possible fix for slip hangs to a couple of people, but haven't
gotten any feedback on it.  I would be interested to know if it solves
the problem you had.  To the best of my knowledge, the problem is
actually in hardware, and it happens only with some com boards.
The com port sometimes loses a transmit-complete interrupt, and exhaustive
testing indicated that software never got the interrupt and it was not
pending.  However, ISA-bus interrupts are not exactly robust.

Several people have had a problem that resulted in a kernel protection
fault in the low-level handler for irq 7.  In several cases this happened
when booting from a floppy.  After staring at the instruction that causes
the fault for a while, I finally realized that I got bit by segmentation;
the failing instruction tries to modify kernel data space without having
switched to a kernel data selector.  The following patch to
/usr/src/sys/i386/isa/icu.h should fix the problem.

Several people have had problems with crashes when modems produced character
input as they were being opened.  Oddly enough, this problem did not show
up before gamma4, although the bug seems to have been present since the
alpha release.  Someone proposed two different fixes earlier; I decided
to use this one, as it does not require changes to existing tty hardware
drivers or conventions.  This patch should be applied to the file
/usr/src/sys/kern/tty.c.

I've always mourned the days of a simple 1 LOGFILE uucp system.  The
more /var/log/uucp/uucico/hostsite stuff is big time overkill on my
system with 1 or 2 uucp sites.  Of course, if I were running SCO, I'd
have to live with it.  But, since we all bought BSD/386 so we'd have the
source, changes are possible.

Several people have had problems with the gamma4 driver for wt tape;
either the device did not configure, or the drive would hang on the
first use.  Both problems have been traced to the same bug.  Here
is the fix for /usr/src/i386/isa/wt.c.  The patch also adds some
debugging code, and just in case, forces the irq to the default
if the drive does not interrupt when probed (which should not be
necessary now, but we will probably include in the next release).

Subject: Section 4.  BSDI Archive Sites
Date: Mon Jan 18 19:00:29 EST 1993

========================================================================


[ These are the sites that are currently willing to archive stuff for
the BSDI system.  They are numbered and described below.  Please
contact the person listed in the description with problems, not me.  I
won't be able to help you. ]

1.  nic.funet.fi

Please, if possible, ftp all binaries/sources/patches of BSD/386 to
nic.funet.fi (128.214.6.100). There is plenty of disk space available
and I'm willing to try to keep things in order there.
The directory in nic is ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/incoming . I just got added
to beta list, after being reading the idle alpha list for a while, so
please tell me about the other archive sites containing bsd/386 material!
We have had this directory in nic since we got the alpha release, but the
only material I have had there is some xview3 patches.

Send me a note at <an...@nic.funet.fi> , if you upload something to nic,
describing the bits you sent.

Happy hacking, Antti-Pekka 


2.  ftp.unm.edu

In addition, on the machine ftp.unm.edu is available via anon ftp.
It has a directory called pub/BSDI-386 (to hopefully cut some of the
confusion with 386BSD) and at the moment contains very little.

Any patches relating to BSD/386 that I receive (via email or 
other means) will be place there. At the moment, I only have 
~60 megs of space to deal with so I can't deal with too many
full sources, but we are working on a 2 gig ftp server and 
when that becomes a reality, I don't think space will be
a problem.

Any patches posted to the beta list from this point on will
appear there, if you have posted a patch to the list in the
past, please mail it to me directly.

Steve Freed  <sfr...@ariel.unm.edu>
  

3.  bsdi.com

An archive is now available for programs, patches, information, and ports
for BSD/386 systems.  The archive is at bsdi.com [192.48.96.23] in the
directories under "/bsdi.sw/sw".  Please report problems with the site
to mcc...@bsdi.com or s...@acd4.acd.com.  Sorry it took me so long to 
get things going but I think that you will like it.  

The archive includes all of the patches that have been posted to the beta 
mailing list and a list of all postings to the bata list, stored by month.  
Also available are whole ported programs or patches to some well known 
packages to make them run under BSD/386.  If you have software or patches 
that you would like to contribute to the archive, please drop me a message.

I will also be setting up a "gamma" directory under /bsdi.sw/sw/gamma
for storing programs and patches for the gamma release of BSD/386.
The gamma mailing list will also be archived there on a monthly basis.

4. ftp.uni-erlangen.de

ftp.uni-erlangen.de:/pub/BSD/BSDI contains a mirror of the relevant/interesting
files on bsdi.com.

Welcome to the BSDI ported software list!  Its purpose is to give
information about net software that has been ported to  or that is known to 
compile without modificaton on the BSDI BSD/386 system.  I am also attempting
to list the current patches and enhancements that are available.  This 
list will be posted on a monthly basis unless the demand is greater.  

This list and some of the software packages or patches mentioned here
are archived on bsdi.com.  The postings to the former beta and gamma
mailing lists are archived on bsdi.com.  The new bsdi-users mailing
list is being archived and made available also.

I have deleted the beta-specific information due to its age and
limited use to the majority of the BSDI users.  If you need older
versions, please let me know and we will see what we can do for you.
I have also removed path names from the location section under
availablity for files stored on bsdi.com in preparation for the
archive reorganization.  I will continue to maintain the site and file
name for the files on bsdi.com.  The path can be found from the
ls-lR.Z file in the top ftp directory.

The list is split into four sections.  Section 1 describes the software 
packages from the net that have been ported to the BSDI system.  These are
packages that had to be worked with to make them functional under BSDI.  The
changes necessary are variable from "easy" on up.  The second section is
for software that compiles on BSDI without code modifications.  It appears 
that several X applications fall into this area at the moment.  Section 3
will be for enhancements and patches written specifically for the BSDI
system such as new drivers or BSDI system patches.  Section 4 lists
the current archive sites for public BSDI patches, ports and enhancements.
This version of the list uses "Subject:" headings for each of the
sections to make it easier to go directly to each section with most
common newsreaders.

Please contact me if you have any corrections, suggestions, or
contributions to the list.

"If you are an employee of or contractor to NASA or USAF, you may obtain
CLIPS ...<stuff deleted>...  You may redistribute to NASA and USAF
employees and <contractors>.

Everyone else must purchase CLIPS from COSMIC.  However, once you have
purchased CLIPS, you may do anything you want with it, including redistribute
it by posting it for anonymous FTP.  Thus, a copy of CLIPS which can trace
its ultimate origins to a copy purchased from COSMIC may be freely distributed.
However, we at NASA are not allowed to do this."

Therefore, it seems that anyone who has purchased CLIPS can
effectively place it in the public domain.

          (Tom Markson) both also report less compiled and working.  
          Janet's notes follow below. ]
REQUIRES: regex.c as provided by James da Silva <jds%cs.UMD.EDU>, if
     you want to use regexps.  I compiled regex.c into a local library
     file in /usr/local/lib, which I included with -L in less's Makefile.
     NO CHANGES TO THE CODE OF less ITSELF.
NOTES:  when run on console using the standard terminal type (pc3, I think)
     less complains that the terminal can't scroll backwards.  This complaint
     could probably be turned off by compiling with a lower level of help
     messages.

YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: p...@xs0001.at (Peter Pflaeging)
AVAILABILITY: I've got no Internet access (only UUCP) so it would be
great to see an archive server (preferable in Europe) where I can mail
my binary set.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
	I've got BSD/386 running since one week. This ported software
	are the tools I'm using normally. Though - I've compiled it and
	they work - but I don't know if they are really stable. I
	haven't seen a bug since the porting.
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: 
Tips for people who want to port:

Normally the software to port ask for an operating system:
	First hint is BSD4.3 or BSD4.4. One of the differences is:
	386/BSD is POSIX compliant. Though look for the switch -D_POSIX_SOURCE
One of the most amusing facts is that prototypes for library functions
are in 386/BSD headers. Sometimes you must delete the prototypes from
the source of the programs (a good way to look for software quality).
X-software is very easy to port. Normally xmkmf -a produces a good
Makefile.

Problems:

The only hard problem I've is: web2c from labrea doesn't work, because
either lex or yacc are producing fals C-source. So I've made the first
step (generating C-source) on an ULTRIX 4.2 machine. Then I compiled
the suite under BSD/386. I will test this with flex and bison again.

AVAILABILITY: pick it up from tesla.ee.cornell.edu:/pub/tcsh/tcsh-6.02.tar.Z
STATE OF PORT/CODE: complete.
REQUIRES: disk space :-)
NOTES: [ p...@xs0001.at (Peter Pflaeging) also reports a working port
of tcsh, but his version is 6.01 ]

If you have X11 installed, you can just run this to configure it before
building:
	imake -DUseInstalled -DConfigH="bsd4.4" -I/usr/X11/lib/X11/config

Otherwise, edit as directed in README and select bsd4.4 as the system
type.

tcsh-6.02 compiles fine out-of-the-box, but to have a useful
$HOSTTYPE you need to add the attached patch.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  sc

DESCRIPTION: Spreadsheet calculator--your basic spreadsheet.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: John T Kohl <jtk...@kolvir.elcr.ca.us>
AVAILABILITY: Pick it up from any comp.sources.unix archive, Volume 23
(e.g. ftp.uu.net:/usenet/comp.sources.unix/volume23/sc6.8/*)
STATE OF PORT/CODE: Runs fine.  Just compile & install!
NOTES:  You'll need to configure the Makefile; should be straightforward
(look at the stuff marked 'reno' for most of it) 
[ Bernhard...@physik.tu-muenchen.de also has this package
working, version is not known.  ]
[ Janet Jackson <ja...@cs.uwa.edu.au> has this package working at
version 6.21, her notes are below. ]
SC (spreadsheet) has a bunch of patches that you probably want to
pick up with the sources.  The details:
Sc appears in comp.sources.misc as:
      v20i035-v20i041 sc/part01-7     original   (Sc6.16)
      v22i095   sc/patch01a           Patch01a/2
      v22i096   sc/patch01b           Patch01b/2 (6.16->6.17)
      v22i104   sc/patch02            Patch02    (6.17->6.18)
      v23i035   sc/patch03            Patch03    (6.18->6.19)
      v24i020	sc/patch04a	      Patch04a/2
      v24i021	sc/patch04b	      Patch04b/2 (6.19->6.21)
STATE OF PORT/CODE [Janet]:
My machine has no math coprocessor.  To cope with a floating-point
emulation bug, I have made minor changes.  Everywhere (I hope!) that          
0.0 is used as a double, I have replaced it with (double)0,                   
because 0.0 gets treated as NaN.  This meant, for example,                    
that a cell entered as "0.25" would become NaN!                               
The only other bug I've noticed is that the row numbers are sometimes         
messed up when you scroll the screen.                                         
NOTES [Janet]:
I had to configure the Makefile.                                              
I can supply my Makefile and patches for the C files if people want them.     
I have also written a thing called sc-extract (and sent it to the             
comp.sources.unix moderator, who has not yet processed it) for doing links    
between spreadsheets using sc's external function mechanism.

I am sorry but I lost my libg++-2.0 sources due to an archive error, but
at least the library seems to work okay. The compressed libg++.a file
is the original one directly from the sources. The current library I use
has a few bug-fixes which were needed to get InterViews 3.0.1 run.
(I will provide my InterViews 3.0.1 binaries/sources if there is interest.)

I hope these will make you happy! But ofcource I cannot promise anything
to work and I don't provide any support. If you have fixes , please send
them also to me.

AVAILABILITY: nic.funet.fi
[128.214.6.100] in directory ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/X11/InterViews.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
I hope this is enough to make InterViews compile on your machine.
I have only used doc document-editor so I cannot say if the other
clients work. At least doc seems to work allright.
REQUIRES: 
To compile this you will need Gcc 2.1 and libg++-2.0 or later
which will have some fixes in the iostream library. You can 
use the Gcc 2.1 and libg++-2.0 binaries available in nic.funet.fi
under ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/gnu.
NOTES: 
There has been some questions of what this InterViews is...

You will find attached some information which I cut out from
one document (you can find the full papers in interviews.stanford.edu)

I myself use only the sample client "doc" which is a simple
WYSIWYG document editing tool. It stores it's files as LaTeX-like
format and outputs postscript for printing. You can also include
pictures and draw them with the sample application idraw.
It is very nice for writing little documents!

Also, there is ibuild, an interactive interface builder ( which
I haven't even tried ) which let's you design your user interfaces.

State of Port/Code: stable/in production
Requires: bash for configuration scripts
Notes: 
	inncheck is not yet working (hopefully the combination of inn1.3
	and the bsdi gamma release will help).  You need memory to run
	this and a stock bsdi system has the data segment max set too low;
	either using some kind of unlimit program/patch or adding a
	kernel directive will fix this.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME: MIT Scheme
VERSION:  7.2
DESCRIPTION: Scheme (a dialect of Lisp) Interpreter/Compiler
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: Andrew H. Marrinson/an...@terasil.terasil.com
AVAILABILITY: Anonymous ftp from altdorf.ai.mit.edu (18.43.0.246)
STATE OF PORT/CODE: One minor bug remains; dump-world not yet tested.
REQUIRES: Two sets of patches, one to fix bugs in Beta BSDI, and one
	  for Scheme itself both available on BSDI.COM (192.48.96.23).
NOTES: Scheme is my favorite language, and this is an excellent
       implementation.  It is one of the few implementations to
       include a compiler.  Also included are a complete GNU Emacs
       compatible editor written in Scheme, support for X graphics,
       and many other features.  I have written an extensive README
       that includes a list of the files on altdorf.ai.mit.edu that
       are needed/desirable, detailed installation instructions
       specifically for BSDI, a quick guide to running Scheme, and
       lots of other things I learned as I got this system working.
       This README is available on BSDI.COM together with my patches.

STATE OF PORT/CODE: completed
REQUIRES:
NOTES:  This was an easy port.  I think it was mostly  a 'make'.  However, if

DESCRIPTION:  Public key encryption system based on RSA and DES.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: t...@usblues.rt.com
AVAILABILITY: A bit complicated to get.  It falls under US Export regulation
	      since its crypto code.  Further, It also contains proprietary 
	      code from RSA, Inc. which has licensed it free for 
	      "personal" use within the US and Canada.  So, you can:
			1. try rsa.com
			2. try alt.security.ripem

STATE OF PORT/CODE: completed
REQUIRES:
NOTES:  Required some makefile hacking. Pretty neat though.  And legal to use
	within the US.  There is a version available for ftp which does not
	contain crypto code and therefore does not fall under the US export
	restrictions.  But trying to get this to work may be the equivilant
	of trying to get 'ls' working without any system calls.

	It does a better job on zmodem xfers than xc.  It wouldn't work as

t1utils-1.1.tar.Z, available from ftp.cs.umb.edu in pub/misc, compiles
just fine out of the box.  t1utils is a set of utilities to manipulate

you can download directly to your PostScript printer.

Tom Markson <t...@usblues.rt.com>
Recently, Kenji Okamoto posted his diffs for Ingres89 to comp.unix.bsd.  
I applied those diffs, tweaked a couple of Makefiles and was able to get
Ingres89 running remarkably well.  

I have sent two files to bsdi.com: ingres89.tar.Z and Ingres.diff.Z.  
ingres89.tar.Z is the original Berkeley ingres code with Kenji's diffs 
applied plus my makefile tweaks.  Ingres.diff.Z consists of only Kenji's diffs.
If you get ingres89.tar.Z, you do not need to pick up Ingres.diff.Z.

I stuck both in the sw/gamma/progs directory.  I did this for two reasons:
                 1) it was one of the only places I had write permission.
		 2) I have only tested this against gamma.

Since Kenji's diffs were for 386BSD, I don't suppose beta should have any
problem whatsoever.  I added a README.bsdi file to ingres89.tar.Z which 
describes what the tar file consists of and tells you how I ported it.  
Basically, with the tar file, you should have to type make and very little 
else.

It is impressive seeing a relational database running under BSD/386.  Amaze
your friends!   Perhaps the BSDI people may want to think about packaging
this in as standard software (or at least sticking it in an unsupported
directory!)

I've been using it for about a week and have found only 2 bugs (both minor).
One is an Embedded QUEL/C bug and another is creating a secondary index with
six columns (five works fine. Six SEGV's).

Oh, yes,  I am looking at postgres right now and have found really only two
major problems:  1) Lack of shared memory (this can be fixed with those kernel
hacks, I know).  2) Lack of System V Semaphores.   If anyone has a good 
solution to this one, please let me know.

We needed to get PINE up and going on BSDI's UNIX here and the last time
I checked the ported software list, it had not been done.  So I went
ahead and did it.  It's done.  I now have a distribution of PINE 3.05
(latest release) that will build correctly for BSDI (for those who
are familier with building pine, I have actually created a new 'build'
<target-platform> of "BSI" for this).  Anyway, I haven't tested it
extensively, but all major functions seem to work.  Porting effort
was light-moderate...  Mark Crispin advised me to use the NeXT port
as the reference and this turned out to be the best idea, mentioned
it was the best GNU-C port they had.  Changes included tracking down
header files in different places in BSDI, adding some where needed,
changing CFLAGS: -ANSI to -traditional for 'pine' itself's build, 
and a bunch of new #ifdef's (BSDI) throughout to alter some code in ways
not practical to spell out here, but nothing major.  C-client, imapd,
pico, and pine itself compile fine.

I'm getting a dvi->hp converter ready for bsdi, but I don't have a
printer to test the output on.  Before I put the source somewhere for
people to really try, I'd like someone to shoot a test file at their
printer for me.  I've included it (uuencoded) below.  It is a binary
file, so you'll have to make sure that you treat it as one (I confess
to being unfamiliar with spooling from bsdi systems to HP's...).  The
file is just the story from page 24 of the TeXbook, it should be 4 or
5 lines of silliness. [ On bsdi.com as dvitohp.Z SMM ]

Notes on how to do minimal X11 setup to save space.

Since I've set up a number of our machines with minimal X setups, I 
thought I'd pass along what you need to reduce the space for a functional
but minimal X11 setup. Split the following list of files off and feed it
into tar, and then extract it on a system that doesn't have much room 
for a full X11. These are the names of the files under /usr/X11.

Subject: slipup - variation of Larry Wall's work

I don't know if anyone else is using a BSDI converted version of Larry
Wall's slipup.  Just in case here is an update on one that I sent as a
shar file a while back.  It's just a front end to do slip dialup with
nice features like logging to /var/log/messages.

There are a few minor improvements.  It works at 38400.  Some
intermittent hangs were eliminated by getting hardware flow right (I
used a USR Courier V.32 modem).  Sound is shut off so you don't have
to listen to dialed digites, etc.  There is a sliplog.perl program
that goes through your /var/log/messages file and tells you what days
and times you had slip up (nice when you have to report what hour you
put in at home for whatever reason).  Nice features inherited from
Larry Wall's original perl program include hanging up a line that has
been idle for 5 minutes.

Sorry - no man page - not even a README file.  Typical incantation is
"/usr/sbin/slipup -h <host>".  Take slipup.hosts.sample and customize
it's one line entry, then put it in /etc/slipup.hosts.

(GAMMA) Recently I purchased a Longshine LCS-8880 el-cheapo 4-port serial card
from Altex Electronics for about $75 plus shipping.  The card has a single DB37
on the back panel with a cable that fans out to four male DB25 connectors, has
socketted 16450-style UARTs (easy to swap out for 16550's if needed), and in
general looks like pretty solid hardware.

It supports two address ranges, 0x1a0-0x1bf, or 0x2a0-0x2bf in the 'enhanced'
mode where all four ports share one interrupt line, which can be 2/9,3,4,5,6,7.

I can't live without my 8 port serial card, so I quickly hacked
gamma 0.9 com.c to support it with my generic multiport modifications.

While testing the bidirectional line usage, I discovered a bug, at
least in my opinion, in the DCD detection (fix included).

This version isn't as robust as the latest stuff I had for beta 0.3.3,
but it works. Also, something is interfering with the bidirectional
line usage.

(Sorry about posting this to both gamma and beta lists, but I wasn't
sure if a gamma list exists)

You have to add something along the lines of the following to your config
file:

# COM ports
# APT HSS08 multi-port serial card
device		com0	at isa? port 0x100
device		com1	at isa? port 0x108
device		com2	at isa? port 0x110
device		com3	at isa? port 0x118
device		com4	at isa? port 0x120
device		com5	at isa? port 0x128
device		com6	at isa? port 0x130
device		com7	at isa? port 0x138

The HSS08 shares one IRQ for all the ports, so I get warnings about
conflicting IRQs from the autoconfigurator during boot, but it works.

I also added:
    stty -f /dev/com0 clocal
    stty -f /dev/com1 clocal
    ...

to my /etc/rc.local, so things would stop blocking unexpectedly.

The distributed new sed is unable to compile regular expressions
like this one (occuring frequently in GNU configure scripts, found
this one from the gdb 4.7 configure)

s/^[-a-z_]*=//

The problem is with the first character in the [] character set.
Traditional sed (BSD 4.3) allows a single - to be treated as a
ordinary character.

As sed uses the regex stuff in libcompat, I fixed it to allow
this syntax in /usr/src/lib/libcompat/regcomp.c See the case
that was removed by #ifdef notdef

This problem also exists in the libc regexp version. But as
I do not know what POSIX has to say about this syntax, I haven't
bothered to fix it there too.

If you are running version 8.9 of Ingres on BSD/386, you may have noticed
some problems with the locking deamon.  The biggest problem, which I fixed,
is that the ingreslock program is using older semantics for select.  They
used long's with select instead of fd_set's so select gets horribly
confused.  I assume this is a relic of the days when the second parameter
to select was just an int.

Anyway, I removed the bit fiddling and changed all of the manipulations to
their correct FD_XXX counterparts.  Plus, I initialized a table that 
seemed to need it (maybe it didn't, but it doesn't to hurt!)

If you have picked up ingres89.tar.Z from bsdi.com or applied the 
Ingres.diff file sent there, just:

need to create the file mkdriv.perl by running mkdriv.awk through

The changes in the latest SCSI tape driver (gamma-4) that increased
the size of all buffers used for a scsi mode sense command upto 128
was not such a good idea.
It completely broke tape support for EISA 174x host adapters.
The problem is that first a mode sense command is used to fill
the buffer, then something is modified and the same buffer is
then passed to the mode select function. But the length passed
is sizeof buffer (always 128) instead of the ACTUAL length of
the buffer. This causes a data underrun error on the 1740 host
adapter that I use.

We have had problems finding a spot for the ne2000.  The problem in gamma4
is that it is blocked by the lp0/pe0 device on the standard LPT1 address
of 0x378 (ne0 is 360-37f).  If the parallel port is present, ne0 will
not configure.  The problem is that every reasonable address conflicts
with some standard device/address.  Here are the main current choices:

	300	conflicts with wt0
	320	conflicts with aha0
	340	conflicts with mcd0
	360	conflicts with lp0/pe0

The plan for production is to add an mcd0 configuration at 334, allowing
ne0 to work at 340.  I also plan to include an ne0 configuration at 320,
as lots of people are using that (with no Adaptec 154x, of course).
I have included diffs for the GENERIC config file in /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
for anyone who would like to test this.  Note that the ne0 config at
320 is not particularly safe if an Adaptec is present without the patches
I posted for if_ne.c last week.  (It doesn't appear that neprobe would
hit the Adaptec registers, but I am not certain.)

The com port sometimes loses a transmit-complete interrupt, and exhaustive

There was a message on comp.unix.bsd a while back with a DOS program
that determined the real disk parameters on IDE disks.  It works on
at least some ESDI and probably most other modern controllers as well.
It prints the CMOS geometry, asks the drive for its current geometry
and prints it, then resets the controller and asks again for the native
geometry.  It then forces DOS to be rebooted, as the controller is
not in synch with the software.  We may incorporate something like
this into disksetup in the future, but it is a bit tricky (not all
controllers necessarily support this).  When I ran it, I discovered
that one of my drives was using a mapped geometry, although I hadn't
realized it.

The files aren't large, so I will include them here.  The shar

I have the following problem with low density floppies:

I cannot access 360 or 720 KB floppies in my 1.2 MB 5.25 drive and 720 KB 
floppies in my 1.44 MB 3.5 drive (I use the floppycontroler from
the adaptec 1542b).

Low density access works, if I use a typed device node, but not when I want
to use automatic density detection. The autodetection works for HD-floppies,
but fails for others. So the driver uses the first entry of a drive for low
density floppies (the HD entry) and the floppy access fails. 

I dont know why the autodetection fails, but the following workaround works 
for 720 KB in 1.44 drive and 360 KB in 1.2 drive. If you comment out the 
line, which sets the first entry as default, the driver uses the last 
entry as default, if autodetection fails.  This is 360 KB for a 1.2 drive 
and 720 Kb for a 1.44 drive. This Workaround does not work for 720 KB in 
a 1.2 MB 5.25 drive, because the detection fails and the 360 KB entry is 
used as default. HD floppy access works also with this code, because the 
autodetection does not fail for HD-floppies.

Here are the changes for the console driver to support multiple console
screens, done by Vadim Antonov.  As reported earlier, this driver allows
multiple character-mode console sessions (default 8, can be changed with
"options NPCSCREENS=12", etc).  X and rundos can still be used, but they
take over the entire console while running and it is not possible to switch
to another screen until they exit (or rundos is suspended).  Output to
any of the virtual screens while X or rundos is using the display
will be discarded.

Oops.  You are right.  Anyone who installed/installs the new driver should

Seems xman has a problem. It appeared to have a problem with the MANPATH, but
in reality it was with the "cat" subdirectories. In looking at the source, it

If any of you have had to SLIP into a site with a terminal server
you know how difficult it can be to get the suplied startslip
program to function with anything but the "standard" bsd login
sequence.

The enclosed shar file has a perl script which can be "easily"
modified to deal with a wide range of send-expect login sequences.
It does not have a chit-chat config file, you must edit the script
itself.  I've tried to make it easy to modify, but it's still perl
(the worlds most pathalogically unreadable computer language)...

The present config is used to dial in to the Annex where I work.

I sugest placing the "slipup" script in /usr/local/bin, and the
slipup.conf in /etc (if you place slipup.conf elsewhere, be shure
to change the pathname in the "slipup" script that reads it).

I have had enough requests for the new 3C509 driver that I will use
multicast to reply.  Here are the patches for /usr/src/sys/i386/isa/if_ef.c.
They fix three problems: there was a possible hang if there were excessive
collisions, some machines could not configure more than 1 card, and some
machines could not configure the 3C509 on a reboot without a power-up.

I have forgotten whether the 0.9.4.1 patches include this, but I think
the answer is "no".

A couple of folks asked about performance; I don't have performance
numbers (or a 3C509!), but several reports put it substantially ahead
of the other cards we support.

At least one person asked about the card for which we just added support.
It is the Intel EtherExpress 16.

Another problem with sed. The gamma-4 sed failed the following sed
script found in the brand new GROFF 1.07 release (psstrip.sed)

#!/bin/sed -f
# Strip a PostScript prologue of unnecessary comments and white space.
/^%[%!]/b
s/^[ 	][ 	]*//
s/[ 	][ 	]*$//
s/%.*//
/^$/d
s/[ 	]*\([][}/{]\)[ 	]*/\1/g


The last line fails to compile, sed complaining about unbalanced []'s.
This is due to compile_delimited not really knowing the traditionally
rules about [] expressions (namely that inside a [s] expression, the first
character of s is allowed to be ] and that \ has no special meaning.

The following patch corrects this. I have a vague nasty feeling though
that we should run sed through a complete set of tests after this change.

Patch for "panic: vm_map_entry_create: out of map entries"
Several folks have run into this panic recently.  The direct cause of
the panic is severe fragmentation of an internal kernel map, which
we haven't been able to reproduce when we try to cause it.  One way
for it to happen is for the buffer cache to fill with lots of small files;
a news feed or NFS mounts with small rsize/wsize have both been seen to do
this under some circumstances.  Here is a change for /usr/src/sys/vm/vm_map.c
that alleviates the problem.  If you have not seen this panic, you probably
don't need the fix.

Subject: Section 4.  BSDI Archive Sites
Date: Mon Apr 05 19:00:29 EST 1993

========================================================================


[ These are the sites that are currently willing to archive stuff for
the BSDI system.  They are numbered and described below.  Please
contact the person listed in the description with problems, not me.  I
won't be able to help you. ]

1.  nic.funet.fi

Please, if possible, ftp all binaries/sources/patches of BSD/386 to
nic.funet.fi (128.214.6.100). There is plenty of disk space available
and I'm willing to try to keep things in order there.
The directory in nic is ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/incoming . I just got added
to beta list, after being reading the idle alpha list for a while, so
please tell me about the other archive sites containing bsd/386 material!
We have had this directory in nic since we got the alpha release, but the
only material I have had there is some xview3 patches.

Send me a note at <an...@nic.funet.fi> , if you upload something to nic,
describing the bits you sent.

Happy hacking, Antti-Pekka 


2.  ftp.unm.edu

In addition, on the machine ftp.unm.edu is available via anon ftp.
It has a directory called pub/BSDI-386 (to hopefully cut some of the
confusion with 386BSD) and at the moment contains very little.

Any patches relating to BSD/386 that I receive (via email or 
other means) will be place there. At the moment, I only have 
~60 megs of space to deal with so I can't deal with too many
full sources, but we are working on a 2 gig ftp server and 
when that becomes a reality, I don't think space will be
a problem.

Any patches posted to the beta list from this point on will
appear there, if you have posted a patch to the list in the
past, please mail it to me directly.

Steve Freed  <sfr...@ariel.unm.edu>
  

3.  bsdi.com

An archive is now available for programs, patches, information, and ports
for BSD/386 systems.  The archive is at bsdi.com [153.39.128.11] in the
directories under "/bsdi.sw/sw".  Please report problems with the site
to mcc...@bsdi.com or s...@acd4.acd.com.  Sorry it took me so long to 
get things going but I think that you will like it.  

The archive includes the old postings from the beta and gamma mailing
lists and the new bsdi-users mailing list.  Patches are on-line for
the gamma release of BSD/386.  The beta patches will be removed in a
reorganization that will occur very soon.

Also available are whole ported programs or patches to some well known 
packages to make them run under BSD/386.  If you have software or patches 
that you would like to contribute to the archive, please drop me a message.

Welcome to the BSDI ported software list!  Its purpose is to give
information about net software that has been ported to  or that is known to 
compile without modificaton on the BSDI BSD/386 system.  I am also attempting
to list the current patches and enhancements that are available.  This 
list will be posted on a monthly basis unless the demand is greater.  

This list and some of the software packages or patches mentioned here
are archived on bsdi.com.  The postings to the former beta and gamma
mailing lists are archived on bsdi.com.  The new bsdi-users mailing
list is being archived and made available also.

I have deleted the beta-specific information due to its age and
limited use to the majority of the BSDI users.  If you need older
versions, please let me know and we will see what we can do for you.
I have also removed path names from the location section under
availablity for files stored on bsdi.com in preparation for the
archive reorganization.  I will continue to maintain the site and file
name for the files on bsdi.com.  The path can be found from the
ls-lR.Z file in the top ftp directory.

The list is split into four sections.  Section 1 describes the software 
packages from the net that have been ported to the BSDI system.  These are
packages that had to be worked with to make them functional under BSDI.  The
changes necessary are variable from "easy" on up.  The second section is
for software that compiles on BSDI without code modifications.  It appears 
that several X applications fall into this area at the moment.  Section 3
will be for enhancements and patches written specifically for the BSDI
system such as new drivers or BSDI system patches.  Section 4 lists
the current archive sites for public BSDI patches, ports and enhancements.
This version of the list uses "Subject:" headings for each of the
sections to make it easier to go directly to each section with most
common newsreaders.

Please contact me if you have any corrections, suggestions, or
contributions to the list.

"If you are an employee of or contractor to NASA or USAF, you may obtain
CLIPS ...<stuff deleted>...  You may redistribute to NASA and USAF
employees and <contractors>.

Everyone else must purchase CLIPS from COSMIC.  However, once you have
purchased CLIPS, you may do anything you want with it, including redistribute
it by posting it for anonymous FTP.  Thus, a copy of CLIPS which can trace
its ultimate origins to a copy purchased from COSMIC may be freely distributed.
However, we at NASA are not allowed to do this."

Therefore, it seems that anyone who has purchased CLIPS can
effectively place it in the public domain.

STATE OF PORT/CODE: Working well, one real bug.
REQUIRES: 
NOTES:  There is a status indicator on the bottom of the screen.  If
the program thinks that the modem is on-line, scrolling does not work
properly.  I'm looking for the problem.  The work-around right now is
to use the hang up command as soon as you enter the program and it
works fine after that.  I had to comment out a SIG_IGN call for 
SIGTINT and initialize some variables before they were used in
wkeys.c.

DESCRIPTION: Various ported software.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: p...@xs0001.at (Peter Pflaeging)
AVAILABILITY: I've got no Internet access (only UUCP) so it would be
great to see an archive server (preferable in Europe) where I can mail
my binary set.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
	I've got BSD/386 running since one week. This ported software
	are the tools I'm using normally. Though - I've compiled it and
	they work - but I don't know if they are really stable. I
	haven't seen a bug since the porting.
REQUIRES: 
NOTES: 
Tips for people who want to port:

Normally the software to port ask for an operating system:
	First hint is BSD4.3 or BSD4.4. One of the differences is:
	386/BSD is POSIX compliant. Though look for the switch -D_POSIX_SOURCE
One of the most amusing facts is that prototypes for library functions
are in 386/BSD headers. Sometimes you must delete the prototypes from
the source of the programs (a good way to look for software quality).
X-software is very easy to port. Normally xmkmf -a produces a good
Makefile.

Problems:

The only hard problem I've is: web2c from labrea doesn't work, because
either lex or yacc are producing fals C-source. So I've made the first
step (generating C-source) on an ULTRIX 4.2 machine. Then I compiled
the suite under BSD/386. I will test this with flex and bison again.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  tcsh
VERSION: 6.02
DESCRIPTION: a popular csh-derived shell with line editing and other
bells&whistles. 
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: John Kohl <jtk...@kolvir.elcr.ca.us>
AVAILABILITY: pick it up from tesla.ee.cornell.edu:/pub/tcsh/tcsh-6.02.tar.Z
STATE OF PORT/CODE: complete.
REQUIRES: disk space :-)
NOTES: [ p...@xs0001.at (Peter Pflaeging) also reports a working port
of tcsh, but his version is 6.01 ]

If you have X11 installed, you can just run this to configure it before
building:
	imake -DUseInstalled -DConfigH="bsd4.4" -I/usr/X11/lib/X11/config

Otherwise, edit as directed in README and select bsd4.4 as the system
type.

tcsh-6.02 compiles fine out-of-the-box, but to have a useful
$HOSTTYPE you need to add the attached patch.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  sc
VERSION:  6.21
DESCRIPTION: Spreadsheet calculator--your basic spreadsheet.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: John T Kohl <jtk...@kolvir.elcr.ca.us>
AVAILABILITY: Pick it up from any comp.sources.unix archive, Volume 23
(e.g. ftp.uu.net:/usenet/comp.sources.unix/volume23/sc6.8/*)
STATE OF PORT/CODE: Runs fine.  Just compile & install!
NOTES:  You'll need to configure the Makefile; should be straightforward
(look at the stuff marked 'reno' for most of it) 
[ Bernhard...@physik.tu-muenchen.de also has this package
working, version is not known.  ]
[ Janet Jackson <ja...@cs.uwa.edu.au> has this package working at
version 6.21, her notes are below. ]
SC (spreadsheet) has a bunch of patches that you probably want to
pick up with the sources.  The details:
Sc appears in comp.sources.misc as:
      v20i035-v20i041 sc/part01-7     original   (Sc6.16)
      v22i095   sc/patch01a           Patch01a/2
      v22i096   sc/patch01b           Patch01b/2 (6.16->6.17)
      v22i104   sc/patch02            Patch02    (6.17->6.18)
      v23i035   sc/patch03            Patch03    (6.18->6.19)
      v24i020	sc/patch04a	      Patch04a/2
      v24i021	sc/patch04b	      Patch04b/2 (6.19->6.21)
STATE OF PORT/CODE [Janet]:
My machine has no math coprocessor.  To cope with a floating-point
emulation bug, I have made minor changes.  Everywhere (I hope!) that          
0.0 is used as a double, I have replaced it with (double)0,                   
because 0.0 gets treated as NaN.  This meant, for example,                    
that a cell entered as "0.25" would become NaN!                               
The only other bug I've noticed is that the row numbers are sometimes         
messed up when you scroll the screen.                                         
NOTES [Janet]:
I had to configure the Makefile.                                              
I can supply my Makefile and patches for the C files if people want them.     
I have also written a thing called sc-extract (and sent it to the             
comp.sources.unix moderator, who has not yet processed it) for doing links    
between spreadsheets using sc's external function mechanism.

NOTES: 
The bsd386 binary package contains also libg++-2.0 library binaries.
I am sorry but I lost my libg++-2.0 sources due to an archive error, but
at least the library seems to work okay. The compressed libg++.a file
is the original one directly from the sources. The current library I use
has a few bug-fixes which were needed to get InterViews 3.0.1 run.
(I will provide my InterViews 3.0.1 binaries/sources if there is interest.)

I hope these will make you happy! But ofcource I cannot promise anything
to work and I don't provide any support. If you have fixes , please send
them also to me.

SOFTWARE PACKAGE NAME:  InterViews

DESCRIPTION: X based document package, WYSIWYG editor and drawing

YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: an...@lajax.pp.fi (Antti-Pekka Virtanen)
AVAILABILITY: nic.funet.fi
[128.214.6.100] in directory ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/X11/InterViews.
STATE OF PORT/CODE: 
I hope this is enough to make InterViews compile on your machine.
I have only used doc document-editor so I cannot say if the other
clients work. At least doc seems to work allright.
REQUIRES: 
To compile this you will need Gcc 2.1 and libg++-2.0 or later
which will have some fixes in the iostream library. You can 
use the Gcc 2.1 and libg++-2.0 binaries available in nic.funet.fi
under ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/gnu.
NOTES: 
There has been some questions of what this InterViews is...

You will find attached some information which I cut out from
one document (you can find the full papers in interviews.stanford.edu)

I myself use only the sample client "doc" which is a simple
WYSIWYG document editing tool. It stores it's files as LaTeX-like
format and outputs postscript for printing. You can also include
pictures and draw them with the sample application idraw.
It is very nice for writing little documents!

Also, there is ibuild, an interactive interface builder ( which
I haven't even tried ) which let's you design your user interfaces.

Requires: bash for configuration scripts
Notes: 
	inncheck is not yet working (hopefully the combination of inn1.3
	and the bsdi gamma release will help).  You need memory to run
	this and a stock bsdi system has the data segment max set too low;
	either using some kind of unlimit program/patch or adding a
	kernel directive will fix this.

DESCRIPTION: Scheme (a dialect of Lisp) Interpreter/Compiler
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: Andrew H. Marrinson/an...@terasil.terasil.com
AVAILABILITY: Anonymous ftp from altdorf.ai.mit.edu (18.43.0.246)
STATE OF PORT/CODE: One minor bug remains; dump-world not yet tested.
REQUIRES: Two sets of patches, one to fix bugs in Beta BSDI, and one
	  for Scheme itself both available on BSDI.COM (192.48.96.23).
NOTES: Scheme is my favorite language, and this is an excellent
       implementation.  It is one of the few implementations to
       include a compiler.  Also included are a complete GNU Emacs
       compatible editor written in Scheme, support for X graphics,
       and many other features.  I have written an extensive README
       that includes a list of the files on altdorf.ai.mit.edu that
       are needed/desirable, detailed installation instructions
       specifically for BSDI, a quick guide to running Scheme, and
       lots of other things I learned as I got this system working.
       This README is available on BSDI.COM together with my patches.

DESCRIPTION:  Public key encryption system based on RSA and DES.
YOUR NAME/E-MAIL: t...@usblues.rt.com
AVAILABILITY: A bit complicated to get.  It falls under US Export regulation
	      since its crypto code.  Further, It also contains proprietary 
	      code from RSA, Inc. which has licensed it free for 
	      "personal" use within the US and Canada.  So, you can:
			1. try rsa.com
			2. try alt.security.ripem

STATE OF PORT/CODE: completed
REQUIRES:
NOTES:  Required some makefile hacking. Pretty neat though.  And legal to use
	within the US.  There is a version available for ftp which does not
	contain crypto code and therefore does not fall under the US export
	restrictions.  But trying to get this to work may be the equivilant
	of trying to get 'ls' working without any system calls.

Requires: The package includes a binary, AKCL and KCL sources, a tar
file for 386BSD and BSD/386, and bulletproof [Kevlar? SMM] install
notes, in case you'd like to make a new binary.
Notes: I've compiled a binary which includes PCL, but it requires 16

Recently, Kenji Okamoto posted his diffs for Ingres89 to comp.unix.bsd.  
I applied those diffs, tweaked a couple of Makefiles and was able to get
Ingres89 running remarkably well.  

I have sent two files to bsdi.com: ingres89.tar.Z and Ingres.diff.Z.  
ingres89.tar.Z is the original Berkeley ingres code with Kenji's diffs 
applied plus my makefile tweaks.  Ingres.diff.Z consists of only Kenji's diffs.
If you get ingres89.tar.Z, you do not need to pick up Ingres.diff.Z.

I stuck both in the sw/gamma/progs directory.  I did this for two reasons:
                 1) it was one of the only places I had write permission.
		 2) I have only tested this against gamma.

Since Kenji's diffs were for 386BSD, I don't suppose beta should have any
problem whatsoever.  I added a README.bsdi file to ingres89.tar.Z which 
describes what the tar file consists of and tells you how I ported it.  
Basically, with the tar file, you should have to type make and very little 
else.

It is impressive seeing a relational database running under BSD/386.  Amaze
your friends!   Perhaps the BSDI people may want to think about packaging
this in as standard software (or at least sticking it in an unsupported
directory!)

I've been using it for about a week and have found only 2 bugs (both minor).
One is an Embedded QUEL/C bug and another is creating a secondary index with
six columns (five works fine. Six SEGV's).

Oh, yes,  I am looking at postgres right now and have found really only two
major problems:  1) Lack of shared memory (this can be fixed with those kernel
hacks, I know).  2) Lack of System V Semaphores.   If anyone has a good 
solution to this one, please let me know.

We needed to get PINE up and going on BSDI's UNIX here and the last time
I checked the ported software list, it had not been done.  So I went
ahead and did it.  It's done.  I now have a distribution of PINE 3.05
(latest release) that will build correctly for BSDI (for those who
are familier with building pine, I have actually created a new 'build'
<target-platform> of "BSI" for this).  Anyway, I haven't tested it
extensively, but all major functions seem to work.  Porting effort
was light-moderate...  Mark Crispin advised me to use the NeXT port
as the reference and this turned out to be the best idea, mentioned
it was the best GNU-C port they had.  Changes included tracking down
header files in different places in BSDI, adding some where needed,
changing CFLAGS: -ANSI to -traditional for 'pine' itself's build, 
and a bunch of new #ifdef's (BSDI) throughout to alter some code in ways
not practical to spell out here, but nothing major.  C-client, imapd,
pico, and pine itself compile fine.

to being unfamiliar with spooling from bsdi systems to HP's...).  The

Notes on how to do minimal X11 setup to save space.

Since I've set up a number of our machines with minimal X setups, I 
thought I'd pass along what you need to reduce the space for a functional
but minimal X11 setup. Split the following list of files off and feed it
into tar, and then extract it on a system that doesn't have much room 
for a full X11. These are the names of the files under /usr/X11.

Subject: slipup - variation of Larry Wall's work

I don't know if anyone else is using a BSDI converted version of Larry
Wall's slipup.  Just in case here is an update on one that I sent as a
shar file a while back.  It's just a front end to do slip dialup with
nice features like logging to /var/log/messages.

There are a few minor improvements.  It works at 38400.  Some
intermittent hangs were eliminated by getting hardware flow right (I
used a USR Courier V.32 modem).  Sound is shut off so you don't have
to listen to dialed digites, etc.  There is a sliplog.perl program
that goes through your /var/log/messages file and tells you what days
and times you had slip up (nice when you have to report what hour you
put in at home for whatever reason).  Nice features inherited from
Larry Wall's original perl program include hanging up a line that has
been idle for 5 minutes.

Sorry - no man page - not even a README file.  Typical incantation is
"/usr/sbin/slipup -h <host>".  Take slipup.hosts.sample and customize
it's one line entry, then put it in /etc/slipup.hosts.

(GAMMA) Recently I purchased a Longshine LCS-8880 el-cheapo 4-port serial card
from Altex Electronics for about $75 plus shipping.  The card has a single DB37
on the back panel with a cable that fans out to four male DB25 connectors, has
socketted 16450-style UARTs (easy to swap out for 16550's if needed), and in
general looks like pretty solid hardware.

It supports two address ranges, 0x1a0-0x1bf, or 0x2a0-0x2bf in the 'enhanced'
mode where all four ports share one interrupt line, which can be 2/9,3,4,5,6,7.

I can't live without my 8 port serial card, so I quickly hacked
gamma 0.9 com.c to support it with my generic multiport modifications.

While testing the bidirectional line usage, I discovered a bug, at
least in my opinion, in the DCD detection (fix included).

This version isn't as robust as the latest stuff I had for beta 0.3.3,
but it works. Also, something is interfering with the bidirectional
line usage.

(Sorry about posting this to both gamma and beta lists, but I wasn't
sure if a gamma list exists)

You have to add something along the lines of the following to your config
file:

# COM ports
# APT HSS08 multi-port serial card
device		com0	at isa? port 0x100
device		com1	at isa? port 0x108
device		com2	at isa? port 0x110
device		com3	at isa? port 0x118
device		com4	at isa? port 0x120
device		com5	at isa? port 0x128
device		com6	at isa? port 0x130
device		com7	at isa? port 0x138

The HSS08 shares one IRQ for all the ports, so I get warnings about
conflicting IRQs from the autoconfigurator during boot, but it works.

I also added:
    stty -f /dev/com0 clocal
    stty -f /dev/com1 clocal
    ...

to my /etc/rc.local, so things would stop blocking unexpectedly.

The distributed new sed is unable to compile regular expressions
like this one (occuring frequently in GNU configure scripts, found
this one from the gdb 4.7 configure)

s/^[-a-z_]*=//

The problem is with the first character in the [] character set.
Traditional sed (BSD 4.3) allows a single - to be treated as a
ordinary character.

As sed uses the regex stuff in libcompat, I fixed it to allow
this syntax in /usr/src/lib/libcompat/regcomp.c See the case
that was removed by #ifdef notdef

This problem also exists in the libc regexp version. But as
I do not know what POSIX has to say about this syntax, I haven't
bothered to fix it there too.

If you are running version 8.9 of Ingres on BSD/386, you may have noticed
some problems with the locking deamon.  The biggest problem, which I fixed,
is that the ingreslock program is using older semantics for select.  They
used long's with select instead of fd_set's so select gets horribly
confused.  I assume this is a relic of the days when the second parameter
to select was just an int.

Anyway, I removed the bit fiddling and changed all of the manipulations to
their correct FD_XXX counterparts.  Plus, I initialized a table that 
seemed to need it (maybe it didn't, but it doesn't to hurt!)

If you have picked up ingres89.tar.Z from bsdi.com or applied the 
Ingres.diff file sent there, just:

	cd /usr/ingres/source/support (or your source area/support)
	patch -p <this_file

I have found a couple of other changes from the Lynix port. I'll be posting
those very soon:

Below is a shar archive with the necessary changes for BSDI.  They
has been tested on gamma 1 and gamma 3.  I do not know if they will
work on the beta release.
To configure and compile smail, you will need to install a current version
of bash as /bin/sh.  The shipped version of /bin/sh (ash) will not work,
and neither will older versions of bash.  Also, at least on gamma 1, you will
need to create the file mkdriv.perl by running mkdriv.awk through
a2p (awk to perl).  THe makefile shipped with smail3-28 will then know
to do the right thing.

Third, I wrote a new getopt for perl.  I was hoping a few people here
might like to test it before I post it to comp.lang.perl, to sniff out
any bugs I may have missed.  What distinguishes it from the getopts
provided with perl is that you can specify the variable the command-line
option affects.  Additionally, you can have simple flags, options that
take single arguments, or options that take multiple arguments.

These are changes to GDB 4.7 in order to support it for
BSD/386 from BSDI. Unfortunately, because BSDI uses a new
a.out format (magic number 0314) it is kind of difficult to
merge it into the 386BSD support without pain. So these
changes adds the configuration option 'i386-unknown-bsdi'.

I got tired of the autorepeating Caps/Num/Scroll Lock keys and tried to do
something about it. The console keyboard handling is fixed easy enough, but
the X server uses the raw scancodes from the keyboard and needs to be fixed
as well. Since I use the ATI Graphics Ultra X server I can't fix this myself.
A crude patch to disable autorepeating "Lock" keys in the console driver is
included later in this mail.

The changes in the latest SCSI tape driver (gamma-4) that increased
the size of all buffers used for a scsi mode sense command upto 128
was not such a good idea.
It completely broke tape support for EISA 174x host adapters.
The problem is that first a mode sense command is used to fill
the buffer, then something is modified and the same buffer is
then passed to the mode select function. But the length passed
is sizeof buffer (always 128) instead of the ACTUAL length of
the buffer. This causes a data underrun error on the 1740 host
adapter that I use.

We have had problems finding a spot for the ne2000.  The problem in gamma4
is that it is blocked by the lp0/pe0 device on the standard LPT1 address
of 0x378 (ne0 is 360-37f).  If the parallel port is present, ne0 will
not configure.  The problem is that every reasonable address conflicts
with some standard device/address.  Here are the main current choices:

	300	conflicts with wt0
	320	conflicts with aha0
	340	conflicts with mcd0
	360	conflicts with lp0/pe0

The plan for production is to add an mcd0 configuration at 334, allowing
ne0 to work at 340.  I also plan to include an ne0 configuration at 320,
as lots of people are using that (with no Adaptec 154x, of course).
I have included diffs for the GENERIC config file in /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
for anyone who would like to test this.  Note that the ne0 config at
320 is not particularly safe if an Adaptec is present without the patches
I posted for if_ne.c last week.  (It doesn't appear that neprobe would
hit the Adaptec registers, but I am not certain.)

As distributed, the gamma.4 slattach program doesn't exit when it's

slip line;  hence no HUP's are delivered when the carrier detect
drops.

I gave a possible fix for slip hangs to a couple of people, but haven't
gotten any feedback on it.  I would be interested to know if it solves
the problem you had.  To the best of my knowledge, the problem is
actually in hardware, and it happens only with some com boards.
The com port sometimes loses a transmit-complete interrupt, and exhaustive
testing indicated that software never got the interrupt and it was not
pending.  However, ISA-bus interrupts are not exactly robust.

the failing instruction tries to modify kernel data space without having
switched to a kernel data selector.  The following patch to

Several people have had problems with the gamma4 driver for wt tape;
either the device did not configure, or the drive would hang on the
first use.  Both problems have been traced to the same bug.  Here
is the fix for /usr/src/i386/isa/wt.c.  The patch also adds some
debugging code, and just in case, forces the irq to the default
if the drive does not interrupt when probed (which should not be
necessary now, but we will probably include in the next release).

There was a message on comp.unix.bsd a while back with a DOS program
that determined the real disk parameters on IDE disks.  It works on
at least some ESDI and probably most other modern controllers as well.
It prints the CMOS geometry, asks the drive for its current geometry
and prints it, then resets the controller and asks again for the native
geometry.  It then forces DOS to be rebooted, as the controller is
not in synch with the software.  We may incorporate something like
this into disksetup in the future, but it is a bit tricky (not all
controllers necessarily support this).  When I ran it, I discovered
that one of my drives was using a mapped geometry, although I hadn't
realized it.

The files aren't large, so I will include them here.  The shar
contains the README file, the sources, and a uuencoded DOS executable.
This will not work under rundos.

The ash bug which almost everyone seems to report is the one that makes
ash require a semicolon before 'do' in a 'for' loop if there is no 'in'
clause.  Without the 'in' clause, there is no ambiguity about whether
the 'do' must be a keyword, so this seems to be reasonable, if
inconsistent, behavior.  Here are some examples:

I have the following problem with low density floppies:

I cannot access 360 or 720 KB floppies in my 1.2 MB 5.25 drive and 720 KB 
floppies in my 1.44 MB 3.5 drive (I use the floppycontroler from
the adaptec 1542b).

Low density access works, if I use a typed device node, but not when I want
to use automatic density detection. The autodetection works for HD-floppies,
but fails for others. So the driver uses the first entry of a drive for low
density floppies (the HD entry) and the floppy access fails. 

I dont know why the autodetection fails, but the following workaround works 
for 720 KB in 1.44 drive and 360 KB in 1.2 drive. If you comment out the 
line, which sets the first entry as default, the driver uses the last 
entry as default, if autodetection fails.  This is 360 KB for a 1.2 drive 
and 720 Kb for a 1.44 drive. This Workaround does not work for 720 KB in 
a 1.2 MB 5.25 drive, because the detection fails and the 360 KB entry is 
used as default. HD floppy access works also with this code, because the 
autodetection does not fail for HD-floppies.

Here are the changes for the console driver to support multiple console
screens, done by Vadim Antonov.  As reported earlier, this driver allows
multiple character-mode console sessions (default 8, can be changed with
"options NPCSCREENS=12", etc).  X and rundos can still be used, but they
take over the entire console while running and it is not possible to switch
to another screen until they exit (or rundos is suspended).  Output to
any of the virtual screens while X or rundos is using the display
will be discarded.

Oops.  You are right.  Anyone who installed/installs the new driver should

Seems xman has a problem. It appeared to have a problem with the MANPATH, but
in reality it was with the "cat" subdirectories. In looking at the source, it
appears that man.c requires MAN to be set to the subdirectory prefix which in
our case is "cat". However, vendor.h sets MAN to "man".

If any of you have had to SLIP into a site with a terminal server
you know how difficult it can be to get the suplied startslip
program to function with anything but the "standard" bsd login
sequence.

The enclosed shar file has a perl script which can be "easily"
modified to deal with a wide range of send-expect login sequences.
It does not have a chit-chat config file, you must edit the script
itself.  I've tried to make it easy to modify, but it's still perl
(the worlds most pathalogically unreadable computer language)...

The present config is used to dial in to the Annex where I work.

I sugest placing the "slipup" script in /usr/local/bin, and the
slipup.conf in /etc (if you place slipup.conf elsewhere, be shure
to change the pathname in the "slipup" script that reads it).

I have had enough requests for the new 3C509 driver that I will use
multicast to reply.  Here are the patches for /usr/src/sys/i386/isa/if_ef.c.
They fix three problems: there was a possible hang if there were excessive
collisions, some machines could not configure more than 1 card, and some
machines could not configure the 3C509 on a reboot without a power-up.

I have forgotten whether the 0.9.4.1 patches include this, but I think
the answer is "no".

A couple of folks asked about performance; I don't have performance
numbers (or a 3C509!), but several reports put it substantially ahead
of the other cards we support.

At least one person asked about the card for which we just added support.
It is the Intel EtherExpress 16.

Another problem with sed. The gamma-4 sed failed the following sed
script found in the brand new GROFF 1.07 release (psstrip.sed)

#!/bin/sed -f
# Strip a PostScript prologue of unnecessary comments and white space.
/^%[%!]/b
s/^[ 	][ 	]*//
s/[ 	][ 	]*$//
s/%.*//
/^$/d
s/[ 	]*\([][}/{]\)[ 	]*/\1/g


The last line fails to compile, sed complaining about unbalanced []'s.
This is due to compile_delimited not really knowing the traditionally
rules about [] expressions (namely that inside a [s] expression, the first
character of s is allowed to be ] and that \ has no special meaning.

The following patch corrects this. I have a vague nasty feeling though
that we should run sed through a complete set of tests after this change.
I have done a few tests, but nothing VERY extensive.

Patch for "panic: vm_map_entry_create: out of map entries"
Several folks have run into this panic recently.  The direct cause of
the panic is severe fragmentation of an internal kernel map, which
we haven't been able to reproduce when we try to cause it.  One way
for it to happen is for the buffer cache to fill with lots of small files;
a news feed or NFS mounts with small rsize/wsize have both been seen to do
this under some circumstances.  Here is a change for /usr/src/sys/vm/vm_map.c
that alleviates the problem.  If you have not seen this panic, you probably
don't need the fix.

Subject: Section 4.  BSDI Archive Sites
Date: Wed May 12 19:00:29 EST 1993

========================================================================


[ These are the sites that are currently willing to archive stuff for
the BSDI system.  They are numbered and described below.  Please
contact the person listed in the description with problems, not me.  I
won't be able to help you. ]

1.  nic.funet.fi

Please, if possible, ftp all binaries/sources/patches of BSD/386 to
nic.funet.fi (128.214.6.100). There is plenty of disk space available
and I'm willing to try to keep things in order there.
The directory in nic is ~pub/unix/386ix/bsd386/incoming . I just got added
to beta list, after being reading the idle alpha list for a while, so
please tell me about the other archive sites containing bsd/386 material!
We have had this directory in nic since we got the alpha release, but the
only material I have had there is some xview3 patches.

Send me a note at <an...@nic.funet.fi> , if you upload something to nic,
describing the bits you sent.

Happy hacking, Antti-Pekka 


2.  ftp.unm.edu

In addition, on the machine ftp.unm.edu is available via anon ftp.
It has a directory called pub/BSDI-386 (to hopefully cut some of the
confusion with 386BSD) and at the moment contains very little.

Any patches relating to BSD/386 that I receive (via email or 
other means) will be place there. At the moment, I only have 
~60 megs of space to deal with so I can't deal with too many
full sources, but we are working on a 2 gig ftp server and 
when that becomes a reality, I don't think space will be
a problem.

Any patches posted to the beta list from this point on will
appear there, if you have posted a patch to the list in the
past, please mail it to me directly.

Steve Freed  <sfr...@ariel.unm.edu>
  

3.  bsdi.com

An archive is now available for programs, patches, information, and ports
for BSD/386 systems.  The archive is at bsdi.com [153.39.128.11] in the
directories under "/bsdi.sw/sw".  Please report problems with the site
to mcc...@bsdi.com or s...@acd4.acd.com.  Sorry it took me so long to 
get things going but I think that you will like it.  

The archive includes the old postings from the beta and gamma mailing
lists and the new bsdi-users mailing list.  Patches are on-line for
the gamma release of BSD/386.  The beta patches will be removed in a
reorganization that will occur very soon.

Also available are whole ported programs or patches to some well known 
packages to make them run under BSD/386.  If you have software or patches 
that you would like to contribute to the archive, please drop me a message.
