1. URL's to Browse

This is a prototype list, maybe one-day I'll convert it to Resource.db format. Until then this is just a heap where I throw things.

Remember that browser "clickable URLS" are still text: you can use X11 select and paste, to copy them and edit them.

Raven

xearth

The Raven "eye_view" logo was created using xearth, which is also the X11 background. xearth also produced the glassTTY 'background' image.

Linux - HOWTOs

http://sunsite.unc.edu/mdw/ isn't always mirrored along with sunsite:/pub/linux

Sunsite Mirrors

UNC.edu is the main sunsite for Linux, other have their own specialities. For a list of sunsite mirrors aroung the globe, maybe with one near you, go through their introductory pages.

X11 and monitors

X11 from DOS

This is where a DOS (windows) machine, acts like an X11 terminal. The programs run on the Unix box, but the display appears on the PC.

Although X11 is free, the work required to port X11 to DOS, can make a PC-X11-Desktop expensive.

The X11 cosde that Linux runs, is the latest standard X11 code, that commercial UNIX's use. X11 is free.

Harware URLS

Although Issue-1 is mostly about hardware, I'm not particularly interested in it. It's just the first obstacle to overcome. If you know of any URLS that should be added to the list (or replace it completely!) please call.

Hardware is also discussed in various HOWTO's. ftp://src.doc.ic.ac.uk/usenet/news-FAQS/comp.sys.ibmpc.hardware.chips

A database of Linux Supported Hardware (from vendors) is available from http://linux.crynwr.com

Parallel port devices are usually supported when not on the parallel port (ie SCSI). Support on the parralel port will require a driver. There are some, try

http://www.torque.net/ for Iomega Zip, and SyQuest EX135. See also http://www.scripps.edu/~jsmith/jazip

quoted:www.sophist.demon.co.uk/ping/latest.html/ OK, I'm amused. In the battle for "who had the patch out fastest", the new Linux time is 2 hours, 35 minutes 10 seconds. (This is based on the time difference between the message notifying the Linux community of the problem, and the message with the patch). It seems no-one could find a Windows '95 box to test it...

Linux 8086

Linux 8086 is a cut down (regrown) version, that runs on 8086 and 286 boxes. The idea being to reuse old boxes, and cheap chip-masks and open up Linux to countries where 386 boxes are still rare. You should be able to run it under DOSEMU, and still have Linux-386 (or even other CPU's) running. I have not tried that yet.

COSMIC - NASA Software

They don't write their own office apps, but they do serious engineering, finite element analysis, knowledge base, and other things. If you are an oil company, or university, I'd take a look at http://www.cosmic.uga.edu/
