BEWARE FILE FOR TOPS-10 VERSION 7.03 CUSP DISTRIBUTION
1.0 GENERAL INFORMATION
This BEWARE file is for general warnings only. BEWARE files for
specific products are in the SFD of that product on the CUSP tape.
The organization of the CUSP tape has changed slightly from the CUSP
tape shipped with Version 7.02. The GALAXY components are now in
their own SFDs under the GALAXY SFD. For instance, the LPTSPL
component can now be found in DSKB:[10,7,GALAXY,LPTSPL].
The CUSP tape consists of two volumes.
2.0 SOFTWARE CHANGES ON THIS TAPE
An examination of the CUSP tape will show that all the sources have
been changed. The products listed in the section "New Software" have
changed because of development. Some of the products listed in the
section "Maintenance Software" have changed by remastering the CUSPs
which have previously been autopatched; the rest of the products
listed in this section include edits which fix reported software
problems but have never been shipped in source form.
The products NOT mentioned in these two sections have not had changes
since their previous release. The only change to these sources is to
incorporate copyrights into their binaries. To prevent confusion of
the maintenance level of the product, no edit number has been assigned
to this copyright change.
2.2 New Software
The new products on this tape are:
It is imperative that ACCT.BWR is read before installation.
This SFD contains ACTDAE, NEWACT, and REACT (which has been
Note that BTONCE does not run under 7.02.
6. CATLOG - This product is new.
The CATLOG program is the only reader and writer of
STRLST.SYS. When it is run for the first time, it looks up
the the existing STRLST.SYS file (file format 0) and converts
it to a new format (file format 1) under the same name.
Therefore, before running CATLOG, be sure to make a backup
copy of the old STRLST.SYS file for drop back purposes.
CATLOG will not do this for you.
8. CTHNRT - Found on the DECNET tape.
This product replaces NRT which was shipped on the DECNET
tape with 7.02.
9. D60JSY - IBMCOM must be rebuilt using this product.
This product is an update of DIR which was shipped on the
TOOLS tape with 7.02.
14. FAL - Found on the DECNET tape.
This is now a separate product. It used to be a part of NFT.
The /ALL switch to FILDAE no longer implies /CREATE. These
switches are now independent of each other. Therefore if you
want another user to have total access and the ability to
create files you must specify /ALL/CREATE.
It is important that GALAXY.BWR is read before installation.
21. KNILDR - This product is new.
22. LCP - This product is new.
Due to the changes required by the new accounting system and
the major code re-organization that followed, some minor
incompatible changes exist between LOGIN %64 and previous
versions. There also exist a number of functional additions
to support 8-bit terminal I/O and a new mail interface. We
strongly suggest you refer to LOGIN.DOC for a complete list
of these changes.
The .DOC file states that LOGIN has been tested under 7.02
and 7.02/Autopatch monitors. While this is true, it has
received very limited testing. There are, however, no known
problems running under the previous monitor.
30. NFT - Found on the DECNET tape.
31. NIPGEN - Found on the DECNET tape.
32. NML - Found on the DECNET tape.
This product has been moved from the TOOLS tape and is now
supported with use of the products that are built with it.
Read each product's .DOC file for a description of changes.
2.3 Maintenance Software
TOPS-10 is now being autopatched. Some of the products on the CUSP
tape have been "remastered" with Autopatch. That is, the product on
this CUSP tape has all patches inclusive of Autopatch tape #13. There
is also a class of products which are maintenance releases. The
remastered and maintenance released CUSPs are:
9. MCB - Found on the DECNET tape.
10. NETGEN - Found on the DECNET tape.
17. TKB36 - Found on the DECNET tape.
18. VNP36 - Found on the DECNET tape.
The program CONFIG has been deleted from the CUSP tape because all
functionality has been included as an application in OPR.
The D60JSY components from the CUSP tape distributed with this release
supersede any previous D60JSY components from an IBMCOM tape. IBMCOM
MUST be rebuilt with this D60JSY product.
The DDT11 and MACDLX which are on this CUSP tape have not been tested
with IBMCOM. You should use the DDT11 and MACDLX on the IBMCOM
distribution tape to build IBMCOM.
4.0 CUSTOMER SUPPORTED TAPE
The following products have been moved to the Customer Supported tape:
Microcodes (including the DX10 microcode) can now be loaded
The functionality provided by SYSINF has been incorporated
The BA10 is no longer supported.
No DEC-supplied software requires QMANGR. The functionality
provided by QMANGR has been replaced by the QUEUE. UUO and
5. NRT - From the DECNET tape.
NRT has been superseded by CTHNRT because of DECnet-10
