Monthly posting of the guidelines for participation in the LINUX5250 Mailing List. Answers to common questions, including installation issues for FreeBSD, Linux and Windows are included in the documentation in the README file in the source tarball, the manual included with the Windows installer, and the other documentation found on our web site at http://tn5250.sourceforge.net Answers to other questions which may have already been asked are available in the linux5250 email list archive, which is available at http://archive.midrange.com/linux5250/ Keep to the subject. The topic of the list is the Linux Tn5250 Emulation project. (Though, the name "Linux" is a misnomer, since the software will work in Microsoft Windows and any modern Unix or Unix-like operating system) When quoting messages, do not quote the entire message. Just quote the parts that are needed to make the appropriate references. Flames are absolutely prohibited. If you disagree with someone, feel free to argue the facts, but no personal attacks will be tolerated. The official language of the LINUX5250 Mailing List is English. Do not post personal messages. Please use direct E-Mail. This list is international in scope and personal messages just end up costing money. Please do not use HTML to format messages ... not everyone has a HTML enabled message reader and the extra text can (and does) cause some mail readers to truncate messages. While the participants of this list are happy to answer questions and help solve problems, it is greatly appreciated if you do some of your own research beforehand. Before posting a question for the first time, please take a moment to review Eric Raymonds excellent FAQ "How to Ask Questions the Smart Way" (http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html). Advertising products, repeated postings, etc, are strictly prohibited. Also, if you have a solution that will specificly help another participant, feel free to tell that person. And finally, if you are a vendor, please identify yourself as such... do not try to pass yourself off as a user of your own products (even if you are). PLEASE NOTE: When posting to the list, any personally identifying information in your message will be included in the list. Email addresses, however, are masked when being formatted for the list archives. If you include a standard signature in all messages, consider using the internet standard for signature separator (as defined in RFC 3676, http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3676) of '-- ' (that's dash dash space). The list archiving software will automatically stop including the message when it encounters the marker. PLEASE do not report list messages to your mail providers abuse / spam department. This results in a black mark against midrange.com and, depending on the mail provider's policies, can cause mail delivery delays for everyone who uses both midrange.com with that mail provider. midrange.com does treat abuse reports very seriously and acts upon them immediately. When abuse reports are received, and the reporting person can be identified, they will be removed from all lists immediately ... and then a follow-up email will be sent. If you wish to be unsubscribed from a list and cannot do so through the normal mechanisms (identified at the bottom of every list message), please contact the list owner or support@... for assistance.
