  1. i'd like to build a website for Minix 2 on Minix 2 -- is this thecorrect forum for discussion on this issue ?

    Hello !

    i've been using Minix from 2.0.0 and liked it a lot because of its
    minimalism - in hardware resources i mean.

    my using of Minix has been mostly experimental, but that is what it is
    ment for, i figure.

    Now as Minix is evolving to more than 'mini unix', i'd like to offer a
    place to keep the older and smaller stuff at.

    i'm aware of http://minix1.hampshire.edu/ that seems to be back on-line
    again, and also http://www.minix-vmd.org/ that holds all Minix versions
    till 2.0.4 besides of Minix-VMD 1.7.0 -- but

    --- wouldn't it be ok to have several sites for this fine system ?

    --- would it be possible to find people willing to write text on pages,
    documents, links ... ?

    --- may i use texts and documents of the other sites - with names of
    authors of course ?

    My minix1.woodhull.com site is not really on line again, it's just
    that a CNAME redirection that was misconfigured has now been
    configured correctly, so a request for a page from that site results
    in the corresponding page being served from minix1.woodhull.com,
    which, unhappily, is not really a Minix machine.

    Thanks for your positive comment below !

    i think i'll copy your texts and produce new pages using the information
    - hope that is ok also...

    Some day in the near future ( i hope...) i'll ask if you had the time to
    read/check the pages for correctness.

    There are also other documents i would like to use =

    --- website and documents of Claudio Tantignone
    --- documents of Kees J Bot, like 'changes' of various distributions
    --- documents of Michael Temari and possibly others

    Hope they don't mind this kind of stealing either !?? ( carefully
    mentioning all writers on the website of course )

    Hello,

    My minix1.woodhull.com site is not really on line again, it's just
    that a CNAME redirection that was misconfigured has now been
    configured correctly, so a request for a page from that site results
    in the corresponding page being served from minix1.woodhull.com,
    which, unhappily, is not really a Minix machine.

    I certainly have no objection to your linking to anything on my site,
    or hosting copies of my pages. But if you create links I would prefer
    that you use the minix1.woodhull.com addresses, I cannot count on the
    redirection from hampshire.edu to continue forever.
