Binkleyterm and/or Maximus for Linux?

Post by Dave Spar » Wed, 09 Oct 1996 04:00:00

Does anyone know if anyone has ported the Binkleyterm front-end
mailer and/or the Maximus BBS to Linux?  I'm running both of them
under OS/2 Warp, but I occasionally have to boot Linux on my
computer to accomplish some things that only Unix can handle.  I'd
like to have my BBS operational while Linux is booted.

Opportunities to make/save money:


1. Maximus/opus or clone of them for Linux

        I am a grizzled Opus 1.73a user and I have been trying to find a
bbs that is similar to Opus, I do know Maximus is very similar but
apparently does not have a Linux or even a unix version. only Dos/Os2
versions exist.
        Is there a freeware or public domain (gnu copyleft?) version of a
bbs that supports the Opus/Maximus OEC's or Mecca type graphics and screen
controlls? that uses a bbs.ctl file? I am NOT interested in a REMOTE Access
type bbs program.
        I DO have Citadel ver 4.00 installed but I never used such a beast
and I do not even really know how to manage colors or custom terminal
configurations. Citadel seems to be dependent on a client/server
archetecture which does NOT really help me intergrate it into my hodgepodge
set up of leafnode 1.10b2 (yes, there REALLY is a 1.10B2. its beta though)
or the use of newsgroups for online users.
        I hate to have to go back to Ms-dos just to run Opus 1.79 or
Maximus since Linux provides the ability to intergate the internet into a
local dial up bbs system.

                A pearl of wisdom from the y2K newsgroups:
Y2K appears to be the Baby Boomers mid-life crisis, and it has the
potential to be a dandy.
