> What is PUBSW?

pubsw is a large collection of freely-distributable and site-licensed
*ix software maintained by Stanford University admins on an AFS volume
for the campus WAN, QAed for (aside from Linux) several Solaris
releases, as well as several releases of HP-UX, Tru64, Digital UNIX,
IRIX, and AIX.  For i386 Linuxes, there are packages compatible with all
glibc2.1-based distributions, as well as (I gather) every glibc 2.2-based
distribution other than RH9.
Here's a complete list of the 500+ packages the team maintains.  It's an
impressive effort.


Cheers,                                The other day, upon the stair,
Rick Moen                              I met a man who wasn't there.
rick@linuxmafia.com                    He wasn't there again today;
                                       I think he's from the CIA.
