    WARNING: THIS COLLECTION DOES *NOT* SUPPORT SHADOW PASSWORDS.

    WARNING: THIS COLLECTION DOES *NOT* SUPPORT SYSTEM V INITTAB.

    WARNING: USE GNU TAR -- OTHER TARS WILL FAIL SILENTLY!

    WARNING: DO *NOT* INSTALL WITHOUT THINKING.

    WARNING: *READ* the util-linux-2.1.bin.Notes file *BEFORE* and *AFTER*
             installation: there are a few links you must make by hand.

    This is a collection of many assorted utilities for Linux.  Some are
    system utilities that are not easily available anywhere elsewhere
    (e.g., mkfs.minix, mkswap); others are BSD ports of common utilities
    that are not yet contained in any FSF package (e.g., col); others are
    non-System-V alternatives to common utilities (e.g., simpleinit,
    agetty, login, passwd).

    The arrangement, as nearly as I can determine, conforms to the Linux
    Filesystem Structure, Interim Release 1.1, October 9, 1994, with *NO*
    exceptions.  A copy of the standards document can be found at
    tsx-11.mit.edu:/pub/linux/docs/linux-standards/fsstnd/*.

    Many people provided patches and suggestions.  I deeply appreciate
    this.


HIGHLIGHTS for version 2.1:

1) Directory structure rearrange, with configuration support for those who
   use shadow passwords and System V init (no support is provided for these
   things, but your utilities won't get overwritten if you do a "make
   install" after you properly edit MCONFIG).
2) fdisk and cfdisk should work as expected with 2GB+ disk drives
3) As usual, lots of stuff was updated and added, including mount, vipw,
   readprofile
4) Some stuff was also deleted, and can now be found elsewhere:

HIGHLIGHTS for version 2.2:
1) This is primarily a quick bug-fix release for version 2.1
2) mkfs wrapper added back in, since e2fsprogs only supplies an fsck wrapper
3) selection removed, since someone appears to be maintaining it now.  See
   sunsite.unc.edu:/pub/linux/kernel/patches/console for recent sources.
   For the time being, I'm keeping a copy in the historic subdirectory of
   util-linux.  A "make install" should work find from within that
   directory.
4) Note that other floppy utilities are available from:

    This is a collection of many assorted utilities for Linux.  Some are

    (e.g., mkfs.minix, mkswap, cfdisk, fdisk); others are BSD ports of

    Many people provided patches and suggestions.  I deeply appreciate

    This product includes software developed by the University of
    California, Berkeley and its contributors.

    IN THE FUTURE, SEND UPDATES AND PATCHES TO: util-li...@math.uio.no



HIGHLIGHTS for version 2.5:

0) Nicolai Langfeldt is taking over maintenance of util-linux, with the
   help of a few others (Michael K. Johnson, Andries Brouwer, and Rik
   Faith).

   PLEASE SEND PATCHES AND UPDATES TO: util-li...@math.uio.no

1) The following packages have been removed.  Please use the up-to-date,
   canonical versions of these packages from the listed places:

    timezone support (/usr/lib/zoneinfo, libz.a, zic, zdump):
        elsie.nci.nih.gov:/pub/tzcode95d.tar.gz
        elsie.nci.nih.gov:/pub/tzdata95h.tar.gz

    MAKEDEV:
        sunsite.unc.edu:/pub/Linux/system/Admin/MAKEDEV-2.2.tar.gz
    md5sum:
        prep.ai.mit.edu:/pub/gnu/textutils-1.3.tar.gz
        [The GNU version is now compatible with the Plumb/Lankester
        version.]
    ksymoops:
        Now bundled with the kernel in linux/scripts.

2) update_state has been removed
3) fdisk now supports NetBSD disklabels courtesy of Bernhard Fastenrath
   <fas...@athene.informatik.uni-bonn.de> (and > 8GB disks, courtesy of
   Andries Brouwer)
4) mount improved -- many patches from Andries Brouwer for greatly improved
   error reporting
5) ddate, chkdupexe, and other programs have been improved and bug fixed
6) util-linux is now a source-only distribution
7) mcookie generates better random numbers and will use /dev/random or
   /dev/audio if available
8) chfn, chsh, passwd, and vipw have been updated with security patches
   from Zefram <A.M...@dcs.warwick.ac.uk>.  Now, they all use the same
   locking, and several security holes have been patched.  Further, chsh
   and chfn can be configured at compile time to require a password before
   updates and chsh can be configured to only use shells from /etc/shells.

			  SCO's Case Against IBM

November 12, 2003 - Jed Boal from Eyewitness News KSL 5 TV provides an
overview on SCO's case against IBM. Darl McBride, SCO's president and CEO,
talks about the lawsuit's impact and attacks. Jason Holt, student and 
Linux user, talks about the benefits of code availability and the merits 
of the SCO vs IBM lawsuit. See SCO vs IBM.
