Subject:      Gnu software for 2.0.0 available

In the hope that somebody might find this useful, I have built a number
of free software packages for Minix 2.0.0 and put them on my anonymous
ftp site. The packages currently available are:

tcsh 6.06
bash 2.00
tar 1.12
gzip 1.24
flex 2.54
bison 1.25
make 3.75

All packages include source code patched for minix, documentation, and
compiled binaries for 32 bit minix 2.0.0 running on i386 machines. In most
cases there is also a README.minix file containing some additional information.

Find all packages by anonymous ftp to in the
/pub/mcconnell/minix directory.

Gnu software makes heavy use of dynamic memory allocation, so you will
probably need to change the stack + malloc area for many of these programs.
(Use chmem(1).) I didn't do this with the distribution binaries because I
have no way of knowing how much memory you have available. You will need
to experiment.

Please contact me if you have any problems with this software.
