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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

Here is a synopsis of my new uploads, as of Mon Nov 23 09:53:17 1992

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

Each *.taz file is a compressed tar archive containing binaries, support
files (including README, NEWS, and COPYING files from the FSF source), man
pages (when available), and info pages (when available).  Linked with jump
4.1 libraries using gcc 2.2.2d (release version), and tested under Linux
0.98.pl4 and 0.98.pl5.

The *.taz files are ready to 'gtar zpxvf' into /.  Also, the *.taz files
should be compatible with the SLS sysinstall program, which can be used to
install and uninstall these binary releases.

Each *.Notes file explains how to install the binary release and how to
compile the FSF source code.  It includes patches, if they are necessary,
and can be fed directly to patch(1) without any editing.  The *.Notes files
are also contained in the *.taz file.

WHAT YOU GET WITH THESE BINARIES:

*.Notes files contain instructions for installing the binary release, and
include step by step instruction of how I built the binary release from
source.  This single file contains the name of the ftp site where I got the
package, how I compiled it, and what patches were needed, if any.  IF YOU
WANT TO COMPILE THE PACKAGE YOURSELF, THIS FILE IS ALL YOU NEED (after you
get the original source distribution, of course).  If any patches were
necessary, the *.Notes file can be fed directly to patch(1), without any

              /usr/src/* intact)

The *.taz format files are compatible with the SLS systinstall program,
which can be used to install and uninstall the binary distributions.

If you don't use the SLS program, the *.taz files are ready to 'gtar zpxvf'

*.Notes file, described above
*.Dist  file, which was used to built the *.taz file
*.Unins file, which will uninstall most of the binary release (it leaves
              /usr/src/* intact)

The *.taz format files are compatible with the SLS systinstall program,
which can be used to install and uninstall the binary distributions.

If you don't use the SLS program, the *.taz files are ready to 'gtar zpxvf'
into /.



WHY SOME OF THE BINARIES DUMP CORE:

All of the recent binaries were linked with gcc 2.2.2d7/jump 4.1, but on a
system with libc.so.4.2 installed.  In particular, the rcs56A.taz files
will dump core *unless* you have libc.so.4.2.  On the other hand, if you
just recompile the source distribution, it appears that it will work fine
on your system with libc.so.4.2.  Please report other problems so that I
can update the solutions.

    kill, ldd, login, more, setterm, wall, write.  EVERYTHING HAS A MAN
    PAGE!

    **********************************************************************

    BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU DON'T HAVE libc.so.4.2 INSTALLED!  You may not
    be able to log in!  Check to be sure that the programs work in some
    directory OTHER THAN /bin, *BEFORE* YOU INSTALL THEM.  ESPECIALLY
    LOGIN!

utile-1.0.src.tar.Z
utile10.Notes
utile10.taz

    This is a random collection of mostly custom Linux code, which, in
    general, should be in the /etc directory, including: agetty, clock,
    ctrlaltdel, doshell, fastboot, fasthalt, fdformat, fdisk, frag, fsck,
    halt, kbdrate, makehole, mkfs, mkswap, mount, ramsize, reboot,
    rdev,setfdprm, setserial, shutdown, simpleinit, swapdev, swapon,
    swapoff, sync, umount, update, and vidmode.  EVERYTHING HAS A MAN PAGE!
    
    The rdev command can change your kernel image's boot device, swap
    device, ramdisk size, and video mode.  The agetty and simpleinit are
    the "standard" Linux getty and init, but you have to make the links
    yourself, since some people may be using the System V versions, and I
    didn't want the tar to clobber those.  PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL WITH
    GETTY AND INIT, SINCE THEY CAN MAKE YOUR SYSTEM UNBOOTABLE!

    Most people will have copies of these programs in /bin, and may want to
    keep them there, instead of moving them to /etc (where many people,
    myself and a bunch of manuals included, believe section 8 utilities
    belong).  If you want to keep things in /bin, however, please get the
    source distribution and fix the paths in pathnames.h.  Otherwise,
    things like shutdown won't work correctly.

    **********************************************************************

    BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU DON'T HAVE libc.so.4.2 INSTALLED!  You may not
    be able to log in!  Check to be sure that the programs work in some
    directory OTHER THAN /etc, *BEFORE* YOU INSTALL THEM.  ESPECIALLY
    AGETTY, SIMPLEINIT, MOUNT, SWAPON, and SYNC!
