README

This directory contains the version 2.0.1 test release of the GNU C Library.
Many bugs have been fixed since the last release.
Some bugs surely remain.

As of this release, the GNU C library is known to run on the following
configurations:

		*-*-gnu			GNU Hurd
		i[3456]86-*-linux-gnu	Linux-2.0 on Intel
		m68k-*-linux-gnu	Linux-2.0 on Motorola 680x0
		alpha-*-linux-gnu	Linux-2.0 on DEC Alpha


Former releases of this library (version 1.09.1 and perhaps earlier
versions) used to run on the following configurations:

		alpha-dec-osf1
		i[3456]86-*-bsd4.3
		i[3456]86-*-isc2.2
		i[3456]86-*-isc3
		i[3456]86-*-sco3.2
		i[3456]86-*-sco3.2v4
		i[3456]86-*-sysv
		i[3456]86-*-sysv4
		i[3456]86-force_cpu386-none
		i[3456]86-sequent-bsd
		i960-nindy960-none
		m68k-hp-bsd4.3
		m68k-mvme135-none
		m68k-mvme136-none
		m68k-sony-newsos3
		m68k-sony-newsos4
		m68k-sun-sunos4
		mips-dec-ultrix4
		mips-sgi-irix4
		sparc-sun-solaris2
		sparc-sun-sunos4

Whether this is still true for this release is unknown.  Porting the
library is not hard.  If you are interested in doing a port, please
get on the mailing list by sending electronic mail to
<bug-glibc-request@prep.ai.mit.edu>.

The GNU C library now includes Michael Glad's Ultra Fast Crypt, which
provides the Unix `crypt' function, plus some other entry points.
Because of the United States export restriction on DES implementations,
we are distributing this code separately from the rest of the C
library.  There is an extra distribution tar file just for crypt; it is
called `glibc-crypt-2.0.1.tar.gz'.  You can just unpack the crypt
distribution along with the rest of the C library and build; you can
also build the library without getting crypt.  Users outside the USA
can get the crypt distribution via anonymous FTP from ftp.ifi.uio.no
[129.240.64.21], or another archive site outside the USA.  Archive
maintainers are encouraged to copy this distribution to their archives
outside the USA.  Please get it from ftp.ifi.uio.no; transferring this
distribution from prep.ai.mit.edu (or any other site in the USA) to a
site outside the USA is in violation of US export laws.

Beside the separate crypt tar file there are some more add-ons which can be
used together with GNU libc.  They are designed in a way to ease the
installation by integrating them in the libc source tree.  Simply get the
add-ons you need and use the --enable-add-ons option of the `configure'
script to tell where the add-ons are found.  Please read the FAQ file for
more details.

See the file INSTALL to find out how to configure, build, install, and port
the GNU C library.  You might also consider reading the WWW pages for the
GNU libc at http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/libc.html.

The GNU C Library is completely documented by the Texinfo manual found
in the `manual/' subdirectory.  The manual is still being updated and
contains some known errors and omissions; we regret that we do not have
the resources to work on the manual as much as we would like.  Please
send comments on the manual to <bug-glibc-manual@prep.ai.mit.edu>, and
not to the library bug-reporting address.

The file NOTES contains a description of the feature-test macros used
in the GNU C library, explaining how you can tell the library what
facilities you want it to make available.

We prefer to get bug reports sent using the `glibcbug' shell script which
is install together with the rest of the GNU libc to <bugs@gnu.ai.mit.edu>.
Simply run this shell script and fill in the information.  Nevertheless
you can still send bug reports to <bug-glibc@prep.ai.mit.edu> as normal
electronic mails.

The GNU C Library is free software.  See the file COPYING.LIB for copying
conditions.
