Summary: Where to get information about BSD
Keywords: bsd, news, archive, ftp, telnet, WWW
Minnie.cs.adfa.oz.au [188.8.131.52] has a publically available cache of
information on BSD4.x and BSD-related systems, especially the free flavours
CHANGES -- Minnie is mirroring FreeBSD-2.0.5-ALPHA, and the packages-2.0.
The hyperlinked source tree is now _all_ of FreeBSD 2.0.5 /sys.
All of the BSD-related information on minnie can be accessed through the
Web at http://minnie.cs.adfa.oz.au/BSD-info/BSD.html. There are many hotlinks
to the FreeBSD and NetBSD web pages. Minnie has web pages about:
+ BSD-related Usenet news, e.g the end of the UCB/USL litigation.
+ Interactive access to a Usenet News archive on *BSD.
+ A hyperlinked version of the FreeBSD 2.0.5 kernel source code.
Minnie.cs.adfa.oz.au keeps an archive of the Usenet news on *BSD, taken from
the newsgroups comp.os.386bsd.* and comp.unix.bsd. This archive can be
accessed either via telnet or through the WorldWide Web.
You can do two things:
+ search through the news subject lines for a particular pattern
+ retrieve particular articles
To do this by telnet, telnet to minnie.cs.adfa.oz.au and login as `bsdnews'.
To do this through the Web, connect to the Web URL above and follow the
link to the News Web interface page.
Minnie has the following BSD-related stuff available by anonymous ftp:
+ FreeBSD - FreeBSD 2.0.5-ALPHA, and some previous versions.
+ bsdnews - The Usenet news about *BSD, from June 1992 onwards.
+ daemons - Gif images of the BSD Daemons. These are copyright by
Marshall Kirk McKusick.
+ phillip - NFS mount of some other *BSD stuff, which is maintained by
Phillip Musumeci here at ADFA.
+ 4.4BSD-Lite - The entire source tree for 4.4BSD-Lite.
+ net2 - The kernel source tree for the Net/2 distribution.
Please ftp from a site closer to you, if there is one. Australia has a
single link to the Internet, and it's usually saturated. Thanks!
