There will thus be no further update expected to this directory.

(patchy-4.15) ported to MkLinux DR3.
This allowed me to build (garfield-6.25, the latest
version of a drift chamber simulation program) on MkLinux DR3.
The directory is pass-word protected because of the license
reason: you need a license from CERN.

- Jun 01, 1998: the DR3 directory opened to public!
This directory contains applications compiled with (pre-)DR3.
- The directory "JRPMS" contains RPMS with Japanese extensions.
Those without SRPMS were prepared by the JRPM Project.
You had better go to the JRPM ftp site to get the latest ones,
- The "RPMS" directory, on the other hand, contains RPMS without
Japanese extensions. Those without SRPMS were retrieved from
the Apple MkLinux ftp site. Get the latest ones from there, if possible.
In order to download an RPM file with Netscape,
move the mouse cursor to a target link and, in the case
of Unix, press the right button, or in the case of Mac,
keep the mouse button pressed until a context-sensitive
menu shows up. Then select "Save Link As" and save the
RPM file as "Source".
- The "cernlib" directory contains CERNLIB98 which requires a
license agreement with CERN, thus is password-protected.
If you have a license and are interested in using it on your
MkLinux box, please contact me.
- The "dis45" directory contains a graphic display application
for data analysis using CERNLIB and is again password-protected
(with the same password) by the same reason.
- The "jdk" directory contains a Java Developer's Kit ported to
MkLinux by the PowerPC JDK porting team. Get the latest from
their official web site.
Notice that this also requires a license agreement.
This directory also contains a Japanization kit.
- The "jlc" directory contains various programs developed for
linear collider physics.
- The "netscape" directory contains the famous netscape browser
ported to MkLinux. The binary packages were retrieved from
the official Netscape mirror site. Get the latest ones
from there or other mirrors, if possible.
The directory also contains a Japanization kit.
- The "root" directory contains a fully object-oriented data analysis
library called "ROOT" developed by the CERN ROOT team. Unlike CERNLIB,
it is free for non-commercial use. Get the latest one from
the ROOT download page".
- The "x-v-ft" directory contains a set of packages necessary to
introduce VFlib-FreeType features to your X server.
The X sever was prepared by S.Amamiya. See
his site for details.
- The "xtt" directory contains a set of packages necessary to
introduce TrueType features to your X server.
The X sever was prepared by M.Utsugi. See
his site for details.
To use precompiled binaries, you have to first install (pre-)DR3 or
update DR2.1 to the latest level with full shared libraries.
Then go to each application's directory.
If you find a file named like
what you have to do is
to check the installation destination.
If you are satisfied, then do
- $ rpm -qpl foo-bar-1a.ppc.rpm
to install the package forcibly, meaning replacing any existing package.
If you find a file named like
- $ su
- # rpm -Uvh foo-bar-1a.ppc.rpm
instead, what you have to do is
It is strongly recommended, however, to check the installation destination
before doing the above by
- $ su
- # tar -zxpvf <somewhere>/foo-bin.tar.gz -C /
If you do not find one with the -bin modifier, you will have to make the package,
following the instructions given in README.
In any case the binary files have been tested on my machine (8115/110) but
may not work on yours. Install them thus at your own risk.
- $ tar -ztvf <somewhere>/foo-bin.tar.gz
