The Unix Archive -- Snapshot January 2002 Welcome to the Unix Archive, run by the Unix Heritage Society. Here you will find a large collection of Unix releases, applications, documentation, bug fixes, bootable disk images, and tools to deal with all these things. Most of the material in the Archive is tainted with source code that was originally owned by AT&T, Novell, SCO and is now owned by Caldera. Please read the Caldera-license.pdf, and also the individual copyright notices for each piece of software in this archive. If you are reading this file from CD-ROM or other media, then you have a snapshot of the on-line archive. We have had to split the archive over 2 CDs, and you will find the top-level stuff duplicated on each CD. The Unix Heritage Society web pages are at http://www.tuhs.org/. A mirror of these pages is in Documentation/TUHS_Html. Archive Layout -------------- The archive is broken into a number of main categories. At present, we have subdirectories for PDP-11 Unixes, VAX Unixes, the 4BSD collection, and Other systems. Each category is maintained by a separate interest group. In general, each category will have the following sub-areas: Boot_Images - Bootable disk images. Some of these may be links to files in the Distributions tree Bug_Fixes - Bugs and bug fixes from various sources Distributions - Full or partial distributions of Unix Documentation - Useful manuals and setup instructions, in several formats (nroff, ASCII, PostScript, HTML) Emulators - Various hardware emulators Misc - Anything which doesn't fit in the other directories Tools - Useful tools to work with the old distributions Trees - Exploded trees for particular distributions At the top-level of the Archive, you will find these extra things: Applications - Applications written for Unix but not part of original distributions, e.g Usenix s/ware tapes Documentation - Documentation relevant to the whole archive checksums - MD5 checksums over all files in the archive RFC 1321 describes the MD5 algorithm lists - ASCII files giving filenames, sizes & checskums of all files within tarballs in the archive tools - Useful tools that are not specific to one category updates - List of major updates to the Unix Archive
