This is an explanation of the layout and interdependencies of the
mkserv and mkservdev lockers.
The mkservdev locker contains all of the sources for what is currently
running in the mkserv locker. mkservdev has two directories at the
top level: services and src.
The services directory contains the RCS'd sources for all mkserv
services installed in the mkserv locker.
The src directory contains several subdirs:
mkserv: Contains the RCS'd sources to the mkserv binary and a subdir
for tests that may be run to validate the binary.
build: Contains build trees for all platforms
man: The RCS'd source for the mkserv manpage in the mkserv locker
support: RCS'd sources for support scripts, and other things, used
mostly by the DECstation
release: RCS'd sources for mkserv stuff that lives on the system pack
The mkservdev locker also contains this RCS'd file at the top level.
The mkserv locker contains all of the actual binaries and scripts that
people run in order to customize workstations. At the top level it
contains a man directory, a services directory, many bin directories
for older platforms, an arch directory, and this file.
The man directory contains appropriate subdirs with manpages (source
The services directory contains a subdir (or a symlink to a subdir)
for each numbered athena release. Each of these subdirs contains the
files for all mkserv services supported for that release (source in
The bin directories contain he mkserv binary (source in
/mit/mkservdev/src/mkserv.) Some of the bin directories contain a
subdir named support, for supporting scripts and things (sources in
The arch directory contains platform directories for newer platforms.
These each contain a bin directory, and the support directories will
probably be at the same level as the bin directories when they are
needed for newer platforms. See the lockers(7) manpage for more
details on the arch directory.
This file explains the organization of the mkserv and mkservdev
lockers (source in /mit/mkservdev.)
