Applixware 1999 binaries Running On FreeBSD-6.1 (2006)

A "How To" by http://www.berklix.com/~jhs/txt/applix/

By Julian H. Stacey

  • A FreeBSD-4.11 (release) system running Applixware was used as reference & to grab working FreeBSD libraries from.
  • A FreeBSD-6.1 (release) system was loaded with an Applixware CDROM.
  • The Applixware CDROM is labelled "Applixware Office for FreeBSD" "November 1999". "Copyright 1999 Walnut Creek CDROM". It's not a normal FreeBSD cdrom with public source code, but a commercial cdrom with proprietary commercial binaries. Whether Applix still has any interest in this old product I wouldn't know.
  • The 4.11 & 6.1 hosts have an NFS shared directory of ~/src/applix/..
  • kit/ (off line) The tree of extras I copied across from 4.11 (Only on localhost, Not on Internet)
    (Individual files are not yet uuencoded, but should be, entabers I periodicaly may use in my web tree.
  • The whole lot wrapped as kit.tgz.uu (off line) before any entabbers could corrupt anything.
  • Maybe not all files that are needed are here though ? As I only got the application to start in graphical mode, & didn't actually use it after.
  • Maybe some files are here that are superfluos.
  • Whatever, this kit allows it to work.
  • Why did I do it ? For someone somewhat used to Applixware, who I will probably migrate to eg OpenOffice or Kword (source code :-) later.

    Now It Works, What To Do Next

    I need to discuss this with FreeBSD lists, then see if we should put in some compat libs back into src/ or make a port , or what ? Let webmaster@applix.com know it works
