[Would some kind soul please upload the sg keyboard map to an FTP site?
I don't feel like making a call to Switzerland. :) --mdw]

Hi all,

I have changed the and created a (for
Dec's LK450 keyboard) to work correctly with a swiss-german keyboard.
Now it works the same as it does under MSDOS. The file is called:
sg-latin.tgz and contains the two above mentioned keymaps for pl12.

As I don't have any FTP-access I could only upload it to a BBS, so you
can find it on:

The Baboon's Kid:       +41 62 51 3401  (2:301/521)

Important note: you must have kernel pl12 and use the new keyboard utilities
to use these files.

Note that all of the above values will work with simple /usr/ucb/mail.

I cannot get past this error with the from statement.  I'm not using
dns for email, only locally, my nsswitch.conf file is set for some dns
configuration so that I can reach the internet. I want to keep my
email local and not part of the network, but I need to use this SMPT
directly for testing. If it was going through /usr/ucb/Mail there does
not seem to be a problem (but I don't how Mail is setting the from

Here is the homegrown nsswitch.conf I have:

All help would be appreciated!
