**ANNOUNCE** HylaFAX-4.0pl2 RPM


I am pleased to say that I have finally uploaded the RedHat 5.x RPM for the 
4.0pl2 release of HylaFAX(tm) to RedHat's incoming directory. I would expect 
it to make its way to the contrib/ directory tree in due course. In the 
meantime it may be found at:

Description :
HylaFAX(tm) is a sophisticated enterprise-strength fax package for

and client implementations exist for a number of platforms including

The following changelog explains, I hope, why it's taken me awhile to get 
things finalised.

* Tue May 26 1998 Darren Nickerson <darren@info.tpc.int>

- removed .orig files from patch - they were 90 percent of it
  - removed oversimplified /dev/modem assumptions
  - faxcron was invoking xferstats, instead of new xferfaxstats - fixed
  - revised faxcron's manpage
  - HylaFAX was still writing etc/xferlog. Changed to etc/xferfaxlog as
        advertised by all supporting docs and scripts.
  - added hourly faxqclean and daily faxcron cron jobs, and xferlog rotation
  - hfaxd no longer hard-wired as running from inetd, faxsetup will handle this
  - no longer assumes /dev/modem and blindly inserts inittab entry
  - change naming scheme to differentiate rh4/rh5
  - move documentation back into main rpm, instead of sub-packages
  - added Robert Colquhoun's textfmt-mailer patch
  - increased margin on LHS, was too close and getting clipped
  - make faxsetup warn that modem class = modem pool, not Class1/2/2.0
  - use HylaFAX's init script, startup with new protocol only and no snpp
  - added -DFIXEDMEDIA to last command in ps2fax.gs, as posted
        by "Alan Sparks" <asparks@nss.harris.com>
  - added fixhtml patch, removed release from the doc dir, now just version
  - added Nico's skel patch, for class1/2/2.0 modem prototype files
  - added Robert Colquhoun's patch to hfaxd's tagline generation
  - fixes to build on 5.1, contributed by Richard Sharpe <sharpe@ns.aus.com>
  - faxrcvd now treated as a config file, preserved as .rpmsave
  - fixed ghostscript dependency to require fonts-std, not fonts.
  - remove requirement for mawk - use gawk instead.
  - faxsetup now detects is hfaxd is not driven from inetd, and starts it
        when restarting faxq using SysV init script (Robert Colquhoun)
