ircd and telnetd rpm's for LinuxPPC2000

ircd and telnetd rpm's for LinuxPPC2000

Post by p.. » Fri, 17 Mar 2000 04:00:00

Having just installed the downloadable image of LinuxPPC2000 I wish to
set it up as a telnet server and an IRC server.

I have experience of using Linux on ix86 architecture but this is my
first time trying it on a Mac.

So far I have been unable to find a telnet server or a irc server in
ppc.rpm format. Do these exist ? I have tried compiling the ircd server
but it keeps on failing.

Also is there a specific software site just for ppc.rpm's ??

LinuxPPC2000 on a 7200/90.

All help appreciated,

sunsite site, and now when i do

# rpm -i ghostview-1.5-6.i386.rpm
failed to open //var/lib/rpm/packages.rpm

error: cannot open /var/lib/rpm//packages.rpm
