V. INSTALLATION OF XVNEWS, A SUN OPENWINDOWS
1. Create a directory /usr/local/xvnews and cd to this
2. Ftp to ftp.twi.tudelft.nl and get the file
xvnews.tar.gz from directory /pub/news.
3. Ungzip and untar xvnews. With gnu tar type:
tar -zxvf xvnews.tar.gz
4. Use your vi editor and edit the file xvnews.h
You will need to enter your settings for:
DOMAIN (on my machine: "pdb.cdc.gov")
ORGANIZATION (on my machine: "Centers for Disease
Control Atlanta, GA, USA")
NNTPSERVER (on my machine:
Preferred method is to override these defaults
by specifying environment variables DOMAIN, ORGANIZATION,
and NNTPSERVER in your .cshrc or .profile files
(see the xvnews man page). In this way, you will be able
to change default settings quickly.
5. Compile xvnews by typing:
"make -f Makefile.dist"
This command will show you, how to enter defaults
for your operating system (e.g. - "sunos5" for Solaris 2.x,
"sunos4" for SunOS 4.1.x). I get some compilations
warnings on my system, but the program runs OK. Copy xvnews
to /usr/local/bin and xvnews.man to directory:
/usr/local/man/man1 as xvnews.1.
