Old Slackware from 1994/95, LaTeX-package KOMA-Script in Slackware (t-series)


Hi,

the author of the LaTeX-package "KOMA-Script" (Markus Kohm) asked on the usenet in de.comp.text.tex for old versions of his package (he's lost his old data). In Slackware it is in the t-series.
I could verify that the package was not included in Slackware 2.01 from 1994.
Now the question is, does anyone know in which version of Slackware KOMA-Script appeard first? and which version of KOMA-Script was the first to appear in Slackware? are there old changelogs available?
Is there any mirror where such old versions (after 2.01) are hosted?
Here the latest posting

[1995/02/07 v2.2a LaTeX2e KOMA

– oder gar keine dtx-Datei existiert und stattdessen in scrbook.cls ein
entsprechendes Datum vor 1995/02/07 (Format ist YYYY/MM/DD) angegeben ist.

It would be very nice if someone could help.

Thanks in advance, regards

Markus

All the old versions are there.

Alien Bob's mirror also carries a couple of older versions of Slackware than those available on the main mirrors: http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/slackware/

Thanks for your help, I've found out that early versions of KOMA-Script did not appear in Slackware. In Slackware-3.0 it was not yet included and since Slackware-3.1 it was included, but a version from 1996 which is not old enough.

If anyone knows about a mirror with old versions (earlier than 1996) of TeX (teTex) it would be helpful to know about that.

Thanks again, a very helpful link.

It seems they have only a filelist for that version. But it shows that the desired file is in an archive named teTeX-0.3-lib.tar.gz
it would be great to find a mirror which hosts it, but google brought no success.

Um, is this not a good place ? http://ftp.tug.org/historic/systems/...X-0.3/distrib/ It seems to have the source for that package; would that work.

Sorry if I'm wrong or too late. I simply asked the oracle.

Gruesse

PS - There's also http://ftp.tug.org/historic/systems/...strib/sources/ which seems to have the teTeX-lib

@ozanbaba: as I wrote above it turned out, that the desired version of the package has never been in any Slackware-release.

@rinias: yes, that's the mirror where wildwizard pointed to in the above post. But they have only a filelist for the lib-file. The sources are the sourcecode for TeX, Donald-Knuth's typesetting-system. Latex is an archive of macros which work with TeX and these macros are not in the sources but in the lib-archive which would be teTeX-0.3-lib.tar.gz or earlier, any version 0.2 but later than 1993.

Some earlier versions of Slack, included on CD the Sunsite archives which, IIRC, had lots of stuff not necessarily specific to the distro. I don't have any to hand but just wondered if it be in there?
