Software for NextStep

Welcome to my mini NextStep 3.3 archive. A few month ago I bought a used NextStation. All binaries here are compiled on this machine running NextStep 3.3.  In addition I also provide binaries for Intel based machines running NextStep 3.3 and HPPA running NextStep 3.2. To install the binaries create  /usr/local. After you have downloaded an archive move it to /usr/local and uncompress it using the following command:

gzip -dc <filename.tar.gz> | tar xvf - 

In some cases the command above creates an single directory which includes the bin, etc, man, lib sub directories. In this case move the content from  the newly created directory to /usr/local. Also check always the "documentation" because some rather large distributions require an extra directory to work.

Currently I do not provide any sources due to limited disk space and the fact that most of the problems where fixed in the "quick & dirty" way without using any #ifdefs in the sources. But if you are really desperate drop me a note and I will send you the modified source trees. I haven't had the time to run excessive tests using  the software provided below. Please let me know if you encounter any problems (including a detailed description). Currently not all software I'm running is available from my site. If you find a "cross" without a link, please let me know and I will make the software available for download. 

I've also assembled a little document (NextStep 3.3-Intel on Virtual PC 4.2 Installation) how nextstep 3.3 can be installed under Virtual PC 4.2.
