This version will read rpm4 files, and is the same as Caldera is distributing with the OpenLinux3.1 Workstation and Server with a couple of added macros to provide a more complete interface to the gnu tools required on OpenServer. Installation Instructions and special instructions for use under SCO OpenServer.
The software on this site is available for downloading using anonymous ftp. Log in using the ftp client of your choice or your web browser to ftp.celestial.com. The username is either ftp or anonymous, and the password is your e-mail address. Our ftp server will not accept the bogus passwords automatically generated by Netscape or Internet Explorer, but must be a real e-mail address.
You will not be able to access this site if the IP address you're using doesn't have proper reverse DNS (Domain Name Service) mapping so if you get a message saying that you're being refused access because there's no reverse DNS, see your ISP about getting their DNS configured properly.
The software here should all be ``Open Source'', which means that it's free, but not that you can do anything with it. Most of these packages are available under one or more software licenses, which will be included in the packages. Much of it is covered by one or more of the GNU licenses.
Most of the software packages here are compiled for Caldera Linux, and various versions of SCO Unix and Xenix (very little UnixWare at this time).
Documentation and comments on packages. Notes on any configuration specific to the software as built in these binary distributions.
Caldera Linux. I try to keep the most recent versions of software packages compiled for all the versions of Caldera Linux that we support. These should include the latest security fixes.
SCO Xenix and Unix. All packages here are compressed with gzip. There is a version here that you can uncompress, extract gzip-1.2.4/gzip from the tar file, move it to /usr/bin, and link it to /usr/bin/gunzip. This is a Xenix binary which should run on all versions of SCO Xenix and Unix.
OpenServer 5.0.[0-5] and OpenServer 5.0.6 installable RPMS. These packages are built with the same version of RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) that we use on Caldera Linux systems. There are instructions on how to install this in the README.RPMS file.
Mirrors with original packages. Paths under this directory start with the original site name followed by the path as it's defined on that site.
