|3. Distribution Roadmap|
The INN sources are divided into the following directories: frontends Programs to feed articles to the central server and control it. innd The central NNTP server. It accepts incoming connections, receives articles, and arranges for them to be sent to downstream newsfeeds. backends Programs to transmit articles to other sites. expire Programs to purge the article files and history database. nnrpd An NNTP server for on-campus clients that do newsreading (as opposed to bulk article transfer). lib Library routines used by all the above. include Header files used by all the above. The distribution also includes these directories: samples Prototype scripts and configuration files that might have to be edited before they are installed. site A place to store edited copies of the files in the samples directory. doc Manual pages for all the above. config Tools to configure the release for your site. Finally, there are a handful of files in the top-level directory: README A basic introduction. COPYRIGHT The distribution copyright. InterNetNews is freely redistributable, provided proper credit is given. MANIFEST A one-line description of every file in the distribution. BUILD An interactive script to configure, build, and install INN. makedirs.sh A script to build INN's directories except for the top levels: /usr/news /var/news and /var/news/spool. As long as you have write permission to install the programs, this is the only part of the installation that needs to be done as root, except that inndstart needs to be installed setuid root, and so doing the install as root will make life easier. Makefile Rules to call the other Makefiles and make distributions. Install.ms This document. It requires the ``-ms'' nroff/troff macro package. MakeLib Script to build a directory with a replacement of the reference implementation's ``clientlib'' routines needed by remote rn. MakeInews Script to build an inews distribution directory. MakeRnews Script to build an rnews distribution directory. sedf.xxx Various sed scripts to filter the output of lint.
