Hello Folks -

In an effort to start giving back some of my Z joy, I set up a mirror of the cacko 1.23 feed and have added a lot of packages that I thought would be staples for others - visit:

http://nine.dyndns.org/www/stac/zfeed/

Let me know if you have any problems getting there or with the packages residing there so I can clean up any messes... blink.gif

Regards,
Stac

P.S. if you find the site useful, as I hope you will, please feel free to donate (just visit the feed with a web browser and click the link biggrin.gif )

Stac,

Is that supposedly a new business strategy based on FOSS?

Not nearly new - I ran a site a long time ago called The Newted Community (http://newted.dyndns.org) where I maintained an FTP site of Newton Messagepad software - there were quite a few people interested in having the resources readily available... I had a lot of software that I was able to pull together in one spot rather than having dozens of places to look for anything.

I have had more than a dozen different feeds at any given time on my Z - and trying to keep track of what was where was too much for me to handle... so I'm putting in the effort, and my using my resources, and making them available to everyone... if they choose to help out, so be it... if not, the resource is there for them to use.

Also, I thing eBay is a good place to advertise the site since it costs only a few pennies to do so and reach a lot of new Zaurus people at the same time.

In any event, I hope folks enjoy it...

- I can't get a Packages list. Is that by design? Thanks for your time...

Not at all, Rag... did you try hitting the feed with a web browser to see it? If a web browser works, there may be another problem... I just reloaded the feed on my Z and it looks top shape... drop me a line... happy to help.

- I did hit it with a browser. There is a link labelled "Packages" that says it links to "Packages.txt", but when I click that link I get a 404 error. Same with the link below it, which is "Packages.filelist". Perhaps I'm missing something?
- Anton made a new feed for the new release. I presume these are mirrors of that new feed, as opposed to the old Cacko version? Just verifiying, I am. Thanks for your time...

OK - I repaired the Packages link so you can have a look at what is currently in the feed. Please understand that the Packages link is up to date with the latest ipks in the feed, but the webpage is out of date - meaning, there are FAR more packages there for installation. To make sure you see all of the available software, use the Add/Remove Applet on your Zaurus and add http://nine.dyndns.org/www/stac/zfeed to your feeds and do an UPDATE. I have made, and will be making additions to the packages on a very regular basis - there are more than 400 packages currently in the feed for your consumption.

Stac

Just as an update for anyone using the feed, I've shortened it a bit (the old one still works, but I think this is easier to remember):

The feed is at http://nine.dyndns.org/zfeed

The blog is at http://nine.dyndns.org

That should help the hunt-n-peckers and make it easier to remember how to find the sites...

Cheers All!
