missing files in SLS 1.03 distribution

missing files in SLS 1.03 distribution

Post by Alastair McKinst » Tue, 31 Aug 1993 18:39:13

I have downloaded the SLS distribution of linux from funet.fi, but somewhere
along the way some programs have gone missing. I am missing the following
commands (at least)

        man, sort, sleep, paste awk flex find

I don't have ftp access, and using the mailserver or ftpmail is
prohibitive for lesiurely searches through the .tgz files, so which
package contains these files, and where can I get it ?

        Thanks in advance,
                Alastair McKinstry.

1. SLS 1.03 install and missing header files

I have the following comments and questions to do with installation of
SLS 1.03.

Firstly, I would like to say that I really appreciate the time and effort
put into the SLS distribution by Peter. The comments following are NOT
intended to be criticisms.

- I had a lot of trouble getting SLS to install. I have a 386 with 4mb
  of memory, so the first thing I did was select the option to create
  a swap partition.
  Unfortunately, mkswap ran out of memory while trying to create the
  swap partition. This results in a catch-22 situation which should be
  resolved before the next release.

- Also due to memory shortage (and no swap space), some of the packages
  failed to install and had to be done by hand afterwards.

- Now I have a working system, I appear to be missing many of the gcc
  header files (stddef.h, float.h, to name two). Does anyone know from
  which package they should be extracted ?

Thanks in advance, Mark.
