• Some info...

    From Bill McGarrity@1:266/404 to All on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 11:28:00
    HIya gang...

    Little background first....

    I purchased a Raspberry Pi and I'm an extreme novice when dealing with linux.I purchased it to "exand my horizons" so to speak and as such, I'm trying tounderstand as many programs that will operate under that OS. With that in mind, I was wondering, at someone's convience, if you could put together a step by step procedure on how to get the programs needed, how to install, make and compile as well. From what I've read, I'm going to need smapi, fidoconfig, hpt, htick and I guess a few more things you can recommend. I tried reading the HELP area on the website but as I said above, I'm just a novice and it;s like Greek to me.I am planning on using HPT and htick as a HUB on the Pi.

    Thanks in advance....

    Hi Bill!

    17 Jan 2017 11:28, from Bill McGarrity -> All:

    I am planning on using HPT and htick as a HUB on the Pi.

    Good choice.
    You need the basic c compiler installed.
    So best is to get the build essentials metapackage (as root):
    apt-get install build-essential

    Then download the source tarballs.
    They contain instructions.

    If you encounter problems, just let us know.

    there is really only one site you need... the real question is if you want GIT or CVS/SVN for your feed of the code... i use sourceforge and

    If you really want to learn linux, i recommend to read something like the file hirachical standard, the right management system and a shell tutorial to get used with the basics.

    To learn with husky software, you could get the full husky tree with (do that in an empty directory)

    cvs -z9 -d:pserver:anonymous@husky.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/husky co .

    Years ago it was the huskybse directory with the base information how to handle
    the sequence of compiling the husky modules. Look for capitalized INSTALL files.

    There are so many options needed for husly products I thought it would be somewhat easier to know which of the programs I needed to compile first and the remainder in what order. I then start to understand the concept better for future installations.

    Here is a script that you might try. It acquired, compiled, and installed the specified "Modules" ok. It had troubles with the nltools module. Haven't checked into why yet.

    There are many husky documentation files. You just need to start in the right place for the proper documentaiton (huskybse). Otherwise yes, I agree the conflicting documentation needs to be cleaned up a bit.

    [ start /opt/husky/huskybse/INSTALL ]

    I. Overview
    ===========

    The Husky Fidonet software package is split into different "modules". A
    module is a library or a program. In order to compile any Husky program, you will at least have to download the following modules:

    huskybse Husky Base, contains instructions, a template compilation
    configuration file, and sample configs.
    huskylib Common declarations and functions for Husky programs
    smapi The Squish Message API library.
    fidoconf The Fidoconfig library.

    In addition, you need the programs that you want to use, like "hpt" (the tosser), "htick" (the ticker), "msged" (the mail editor), and others. For a full list of available modules, refer to the husky homepage.

    [ end /opt/husky/huskybse/INSTALL ]

    That is all you need, and that specific document is correct. I tried pointing this out to another person recently that had a conniption fit, but that most likely went in one ear and out the other.

    Regards,
    Nick

    There is an issue with the Makefile in the nltools directory. Line number 16, a
    change needs to be made from "nlupdate$(_EXE)" to "nlupd$(_EXE)". Then it should compile as expected.

    It's probably a lot harder trying to jump into all this stuff while not knowing
    Linux very well at all. But it's definitely giving you a crash course, which is
    probably one of the best ways to learn. Throw yourself to the wolves, so to speak. :)

    That's exactly what I'm doing. I read over Jeff's script and it started to make sense.... so I created a script, learned how to make it an executable, ran it and poof... :)

    Now just to figure out fidoconfig and how it works with everything else. I haven't got the NLtools just yet. Is that a necessity?

    Thanks for all your help..

    I don't use nltools here, so no. I wouldn't say it's a necessity at all. It all
    depends on what kind of nodelist processing you actually want to do. I use makenl for my net segment, and use the weekly distributed nodelists for plugging into Golded, so I really have no need for nltools whatsoever, but compiled it just in case I wanted to take a look at it.

    Ahhhhh... ok. I use MakeNL here also but I use the ZC address to send them which will go to the Hub for hatching through htick.

    Forgot to mention that I do that as well for operations outside of Fidonet. Either way, I don't need nltools for any of it.

    Husky documentation offers somewhat conflicting information on the

    It's got my head spinning... lol!!

    Here is a script that you might try. It acquired, compiled, and
    installed the specified "Modules" ok. It had troubles with the nltools module. Haven't checked into why yet.

    IIRC, nltools needs a rename in a make file... i forget what but something like
    nlupd on one of the lines... the fix was submitted quite some time ago but no one at the top has applied it yet and so we're stuck with the problem all this time...

    Yeah, I don't really have a need for nltools as I already use MakeNL for my nodelist tasks. But thanks for the heads up.

    Hi Jeff!

    19 Jan 2017 03:43, from Jeff Smith -> Bill Mcgarrity:

    It had troubles with the nltools
    module. Haven't checked into why yet.

    I think this is a mix up where a change has not been fully made.
    nlupdate was changed to nlupd (or the other way around?)
    And it was not consistently changed everywhere I think.

    It's kind of a moot point as I don't really need nltools anyway as use MakeNL for my nodelist tasks.I did find the changes that would be necessary if I were to desire to install nltools.

    i've not looked at nltools or nlupd but i suspect that they do not do the same job as makenl or makenlng... makenl and makenlng create nodelists whereas more other tools are either diff mergers or nodelist index compilers... i'm aware of
    at least two nodelist index database formats... v7 and btrees... some of today's software doesn't even use nodelist indexes and some don't even use the nodelist...
