Answerbook & 2.3

Post by Thomas Tornbl » Sat, 15 Jan 1994 17:35:06



After having installed 2.3 and a full installation of the answerbook,
I noticed that I'm missing many of the answerbook sections I had in
2.2, mainly the device driver development and hardware reference
sections. What have I done wrong when installing AB?

There are now 4 bits of AnswerBook:

        The End User AnswerBook (comes on the 2.x CD)
        The Reference Manual, Sysadmin & Hrdware (on the AnswerBook CD)
        The developer documentation (on the SDK CD)
        The device driver AnswerBooks (on the DDK (?) CD)

Nothing's wrong with your installation. They put these sections to SDK
(Software Developer's Kit) and of course you can buy it - remember cc :-(

1. will 2.3 answerbook work under 2.3 hardware 5/94?

Due to an ordering error, we only got the 2.3 hardware 5/94 SOLD
(desktop) software package rather than SOLS (server) with our new
SS-20, so it doesn't have the answerbook CD and the late-breaking news
for system administrators document.  Is the late-breaking news
in this release any different from the one in plain 2.3?  And will
the plain 2.3 answerbook work OK when installed on this 2.3 hardware
5/94 system?
