I used a program http://www.httrack.com/ to take a snapshot of the entire forum's in lofi format. I spidered the site at a slow speed and bandwidth so as to neither kill the forum nor my ADSL line!

I created a squashfs file system (I had to use an old version of mksquashfs to make it compatible with cacko), which you can store on your memory card and loopback mount on either the Z or a linux box (and probably OSX), e.g.:
CODE
   mkdir /mnt/oesfforlofi
   mount -t squashfs -o loop /mnt/card/oesfforlofi.squashfs /mnt/oesfforlofi
-or-
   mount -t squashfs -o loop /mnt/card/oesfforlofi.squashfs.nmz /mnt/oesfforlofi


or add to /etc/fstab:
CODE
  /mnt/card/oesfforlofi.squashfs /mnt/oesfforlofi squashfs loop,noauto,noatime,ro 0 0


There are two versions of the squashfs archive, one with and one without the .nmz suffix. The latter has a free-text search function using Namazu .

Please download it from Antikz's mirror at
oesfforlofi.squashfs.nmz -with search, 64MB or oesfforlofi.squashfs without search, 32MB; original files at my downloads


--edit again 20061130
Added nmz details with Antikz's kind mirroring

I originally used cramfs but couldn't mount the archive on my linux/x86 box, so I tried squashfs and that worked on both and was quite a bit smaller than a zipfile; must use squashfs v2 as v3 is incompatible with Cacko's v2.

Another reason for doing the snapshot is a precaution against the loss of the forum, either through disaster (I'd hope offroadgeek or dz to have decent backups) or (unlikely) a falling-out of the community with those hosting it - even the small risk of this means we should make the effort to have non-live snapshots.

if someone's got bandwidth and disk space to burn, maybe they could unpack the archive on their web server and post a URL?

I was thinking of refreshing the snapshot every two months, anyone want to suggest more or less frequently?
Jon_J
I don't know how to make a cramfs/squashfs image, so I just unzipped the archive and am copying it to my Z thru USB.
I'm copying it to /hdd3/Documents/Web_Files/
It takes about One hour and 45 minutes to copy these files to my Z.
I just hope I can open it in Opera, in a reasonable amount of time to make it usable.
I'll report back when these files are all copied.
Since the forum's search function won't work on these offline pages, what's recommended to search these pages on the Z ?

I wonder if you could type:

I got it open in Opera, it took awhile to open.
There is a problem with the large number of files in the archive.
When I was copying this archive from my windows box to my Z thru USB, the last file would not copy.
"lofiscreen.css"
I got an error saying this file or directory cannot be created.
I can copy this file to this directory if I move another file out of this directory.
I have my choice of which one of 2 files to leave out.
"lofiscreen.css" or "lofiprint.css"
I placed lofiprint.css" in one directory above the /lofiversion/ directory and copied "lofiscreen.css" to /lofiversion/ directory.
This is on my vfat formatted /hdd3

I just clicked on the General forum and it's taking a very long time (in Opera) to open, about 45 secs. screenshot below.

I know this is offtopic, but I now need to defrag this FAT drive thru USB in windows.
I wish there was a better method, this process takes about an hour and half... sad.gif
EDIT:
After placing the files from this archive onto /hdd3, I decided to use Diskeeper to defrag /hdd3.
Defrag was 4 hours into it's progress and it was only at 11%....
I decided to stop it.
When the drive finally stopped spinning, about 2 minutes after I stopped it, I decided to MOVE the entire contents to my windows machine, then format the drive and MOVE the files back.
This is estimated to take 119 minutes for each move. That's 4 hours total.
The drive looked really fragmented by looking at the graphic in Diskeeper.
The drive spinned constantly. I hope this doesnt wear out my built-in microdrive. sad.gif
I have it plugged into external power, in case anyone is wondering.
Cresho
I have you bookmarked. smile.gif Incase of a catastrophy, i know where to go.
Jon_J
This works pretty well. Clicking a thread takes about 30 secs though.
I'm glad to have the forums at my disposal anywhere I go.
I hope I don't have a problem with leaving that last file out of it's proper directory as mentioned above. "lofiprint.css"

Nice gesture Cresho.. smile.gif
Have you downloaded this? I'm offline when I leave my computer overnight, so there isn't a way to connect to me.

Oh BTW, Thank you speculatrix for making this available for us Zaurus users.
Thank you Antikx for hosting this file. smile.gif

I'll have a go soon at making a cramfs or squashfs form of it as soon as I can. It'll still be 60+MB, as it probably won't be any more or less efficient than a zip file.

I also had a problem with lofiscreen.css when I first captured the files on windows onto local disk, it would let the two .css files coexist. It wasn't until I moved the files to my fileserver for uploading to web site when I was able to put the two .css files into the main directory and then zip it up. It seems then that there is something odd in windows!

the only free text database that springs to mind for linux is "glimpse": http://webglimpse.net/

Trying to copy lofiprint.css on my Z in Tree!Explorer to /lofiversion/
It seems the /lofiversion/ directory won't open or is taking a very long time to open in Tree!Explorer.
There's no disc activity.
Tree!Explorer seemed to lock up. I get sounds when I click, so I dont think my Z is locked up.
I also have Opera open with the forums loaded.
I just switched to Opera and Tree!Explorer won't open. I'm going to need to kill it or reboot.
One last edit to this post..
I opened sysinfo to the processes tab and I see activity in the treeexplorer entry.
The numbers under memory are fluctuating
speculatrix
I think the 21000 files will break you Z if you attempt to view in a gui. Use the command-line!
Jon_J
I killed it in sysinfo.
Trying again to copy this file results in same situation as above.
Going to try commandline to copy this file, but I first am going to copy/paste this long path so I don't need to remember it or write it down.

I'm in the directory just below /lofiversion
CODE
cp lofiprint.css /lofiversion/
cp: unable to open '/lofiversion/': Is a directory

cp lofiprint.css /lofiversion
cp: unable to open '/lofiversion/': Read-only file system


speculatrix, do you know what lofiprint.css is used for?
If it's just there to enable printing to a printer, I'll just leave it out.

Another edit, here's lofiprint.css opened in wordpad:
CODE
/*=============================================*/
/* LO-FI SCREEN CSS FILE                       */
/* (c) 2004 Invision Power Services, Inc.      */
/* This CSS by: Matthew Mecham                 */
/*=============================================*/

@import url(lofiscreen.css);

It looks like it's needed for some reason as it calls lofiscreen.css
lofiscreen.css is too big to post here, but I opened it in wordpad and it has a lot of formatting info in it.

Thanks again,
Jon smile.gif
speculatrix
yeah, I think lofiprint is for formatting when printing... lofiscreen is the one you want, without it the forum posts kind of merge together and it's harder to read.
Jon_J
Thanks for this info.

I just updated it.
speculatrix
I have created cramfs and its uploading to my website, it's 72638464 bytes!

I copied the image onto my SD card, and mounted it under /tmp (which on cacko is elsewhere).. thus:

$mkdir /dev/shm/tmp/oesfforlofi

$mount -o loop -t cramfs /mnt/card/oesfforlofi.cramfs /dev/shm/tmp/oesfforlofi

then simply tell opera to browse file: and go to /tmp and to oesfforlofi and then index.html


I will also try with squashfs as its archive is only 39407616 bytes, a very worthwhile saving on bandwidth! I can't seem to work out the syntax of squashfs on cacko, it's somehow different to cramfs and I'm tired after a long day!

# mount -o loop -t squashfs/mnt/card/oesfforlofi.squashfs /dev/shm/tmp/oesfforlofi
mount: Mounting /mnt/card/oesfforlofi.squashfs on /dev/shm/tmp/oesfforlofi failed: Invalid argument

I have Meanie's Automounter installed. I'll use it to mount the squashfs version as it becomes available.

What I would do if I were you would be... copy off the files you want from your flash card, reformat it, and put the files back again, it'd be a lot quicker than de-fragging!
speculatrix
I deleted the zip file off my site to save disk space, but Antikz's kind provision of a mirror will allow those who want it to grab it.

I'm uploading the squashfs archive now. I am wondering whether I used the right flags to make it as there are lots of options. If someone can test it, please let me know if you can make it work!

I just copied it to my hard drive. /hdd3/oesf/ folder.
Rebooting to see if Meanie's automounter mounts it.
It didn't mount automatically, so I created a folder: /mnt/oesf/
Then I tried to mount it in the console.
su
mount /hdd3/oesf/oesfforlofi.squashfs /mnt/oesf

I got this error
mount: mounting /hdd3/oesf/oesfforlofi.squashfs on /mnt/oesf failed: Block device required

I don't remember what I need to do to make a block device.
I recall when using Meanie's pdaXqtrom, there was a script that installed, and mounted the squashfs archives.
I'm going to look at Meanie's PDF file and find out how to mount this.
speculatrix
suse kernel comes with cramfs but not squashfs (and without either toolsuite for mkcramfs or mksquashfs, so I built them).

I just finished rebuilding the kernel modules on my fileserver and installed squashfs and am able to mount the oesfforlofi.squashfs on loopback mount and it works fine!
CODE
# mount -t squashfs -o loop,ro /home/download/zaurus/docs/oesfforlofi.squashfs /tmp/oesf-squashfs
# ls /tmp/oesf-squashfs
backblue.gif  external.gif  external.html  index.html  www.oesf.org


However, I cannot mount the cramfs image!
CODE
# mount -o loop -t cramfs /home/download/zaurus/docs/oesfforlofi.squashfs /tmp/oesf-cramfs
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0,
      missing codepage or other error
      In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
      dmesg | tail  or so

cramfs: wrong magic


Very odd. And a bit annoying. I am woindering if its an endian incompatibility between x86 and Arm - perhaps mkcramfs defaults to arm compat, and mksquashfs to x86?

It does mean the squashfs image is worth having if you have an x86 workstation... I wish it were the otherway round because it's the Zaurus that would benefit from the space saving!
Jon_J
I don't know much about mounting either cramfs or squashfs archives, but Meanie's pdaxqtrom comes in both types.
using Meanie's script mounts either cramfs or squashfs versions of pdaxqtrom.
Cacko already includes the necessory module for squashfs, but I heard the Sharp rom doesn't.
EDIT:
So do I have to manually mount this archive by using the above commands?
That's what I thought Automounter was for. I thought it did all the commands and mounting for you.
I have a problem remembering the commands and switches...
Jon_J
I just tried your command above with my directory setup,
mount -t squashfs -o loop,ro /hdd3/oesf/oesfforlofi.squashfs /mnt/oesf

the error about block device means that the loop-back mount didn't work as it should see the file as a pseudo block device.

according to the docs, mksquashfs can make big-endian or little-endian file systems, the one I made yesterday was LE (and I would suggest you rename is to .e.g. oesfforlofi.squashfs.le). It says that the kernel module FS can mount either BE or LE files, but I am wondering if this is the case, and am making a new BE file and will test it to see if will mount on cacko, if it does I will upload it.

so, in the meanwhile, you'll have to live with cramfs on zaurus and squashfs on x86!

sorry for all this hassle guys, I should really have tested them before uploading.
Jon_J
The cramfs version mounted. smile.gif

EDIT: what is the reason for renaming the squashfs archive to oesfforlofi.squashfs.le
That won't make it work on the Z, will it?
If it only works on a desktop Linux PC, then I'll just delete it off my Zaurus.

Thanks speculatrix, I get it now. (I'm a little dense when it comes to these things).
I'll try the next squashfs version when it's ready.

you can call these files anything you want, it doesn't matter at all. glad you've got a working mounted archive.

renaming to .le is just my way of remembering which version is which. since it doesn't appear to work on your Z, might as well delete it.. hopefully I will get a squashfs version which does work on Z soon.

I'm going to reboot and see if Automounter mounts it automatically.
Automounter didn't mount it automatcially.
Guess I'll need to use commandline each time I mount this.

--deleted previous post as I'd made a complete dogs dinner--

neither the LE or BE versions of the squashfs are mountable, with or without trying "loop=/dev/loop1" :

Hmm. I can only assume that the version of squashfs I downloaded is incompatible with the one in cacko's kernel. It's built-in, not a module in the cacko kernel, so I can't tell what version it is.
Jon_J
According to maslovsky, Cacko 1.23 includes squashfs 2.2

X86 and the Arm on Zaurus are both little endian machines.

@Jon_J:
Thanks for that.
I just downloaded old squashfs tools and made a small test file on linux-x86, and it mounted ok.

@cvmiller:
yeah, it was a crap theory and I was clutching at straws. I believe Arm can run in LE or BE, and it's set at power-up time, and I couldn't remember which way the Z ran. Thanks for reminder.

I'll re-try the full oesf archive as squashfs2.2 and verify
a/ it works on Z
b/ it's any smaller than cramfs (I hope after all this effort it is!!!)
c/ it works on linux-x86

thanks for your patience and help

Hooray! Yes, I now have a squashfs filesys which mounts on cacko.. so I am uploading it. It's not as small as the one made with squashfs3, but it does work. It also mounts on a linux x86 machine running squashfs3, so that's a bonus. I'll be deleting the cramfs and zip files and old squashfs images.

Antikz, can you please mirror this new squashfs file?

thanks all for time, thoughts and effort. I'll update the first post.

It works for me, thank you again speculatrix.
It loads faster than the unzipped archive does for me.
It took about 20 secs to go from clicking on "index.html" to loading the "Front Page" of OESF Forums. smile.gif
Clicking "Hardware Mods" took 3 secs to open that subforum.

I'm going to delete the set of files that I unzipped onto my hard drive, since these take quite a bit longer to load.

This makes the OESF Forums archive truly portable.

Thanks for letting me know of your success. Now we've got a winning formula it'll be worth doing it again!

-- three pages devoted to one file. sigh.
speculatrix
Newsflash!

so, you can carry around the 21,846 documents that are the OESF forums...

so how'd you like it if you could do a full text search on those forum files? e.g. search for "cacko wifi hostap"?

yeah? yeah? got you excited? ok, maybe I'm sad, but, I have it working. I used a free-text-search program called Namazu, cross-compiled for Z, and generated the indexes on the PC.

the first step is to install a web server on your zaurus! you can do it with less than 50 lines of shells script.. follow these instructions here: http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=22076

next, I'll be uploading a new squashfs which contains the namazu indices for the oesf forum lofi snapshot, and then providing the necessary enhanced web server and the namazu.cgi it uses.

I've been using this OESF Forum Archive for awhile in Opera on Cacko without any problems.
But I wanted to use Netfront to open various threads so my Mom can read them.
Netfront has easier to read fonts without having to scroll sideways.
When clicking on:
C1000/3x00 General Discussions on main page in Netfront, I get the error shown in the pic below.
This error pops up, no matter what link/subforum that I click on the main page.
I pasted the error in here since you cannot read it completely in the picture.
CODE
file://localhost/mnt/oesf/oesf/www.oesf.org/forums/lofiversion/indexe965.html?f115.html
File open error


What gives? Is there a setting that I need to change so I can browse the offline forum archive in Netfront?

Also, since Netfront won't let you browse your filesystem outside of "/Documents",
I opened this archive in Opera, then copied/pasted the path into Netfront.
Then I bookmarked it in Netfront.

EDIT: I just figured out how to "Force" Netfront to open the various threads/links.
It is a time consuming, roundabout method. sad.gif sad.gif
1. Click link, and error message dialog pops up.
2. copy/paste the entire error message into the URL bar in Netfront.
3. Delete all characters to the right of "/indexe965.html" (Starting with the question mark).
4. Now click the "goto" arrow and it will take you to the URL that was given in the error message.

Example:
Change this:
file://localhost/mnt/oesf/oesf/www.oesf.org/forums/lofiversion/indexe965.html?f115.html
to this:
file://localhost/mnt/oesf/oesf/www.oesf.org/forums/lofiversion/indexe965.html

Thank you,
Jon

I just opened this archive in Picsel Browser and it has no problem clicking the links/threads and opening their respective pages.

I wonder what's wrong in Netfront as above?
speculatrix
I think the problem with netfront is that it takes a FILE url literally, and expects to see a file with the name ending ?xxx, which of course doesn't work, because the archiving process strips the ? parameters.

there's probably only one fix for netfront, and that would be to enhance my sh-http browser to allow it to actually serve web pages rather than just be a wrapper for cgi. not too hard, I will give it some thought over the weekend.
Jon_J
Bump.^
Since the Zaurus line has been discontinued, any chance of a complete archive of the OESF forums?
Although this archive of the forums was a very great effort, it was incomplete.
I would hate to see all the information on these forums disappear into cyberspace..
speculatrix
Now I'm back from holiday, I will see if I can find time over the weekend to grab another snapshot. Hopefully this time there will be more people testing the results!

I've had the same problem. It seems that the html files have all links embedded as "redirects", which at least the text mode browser "links" does not understand such links.

Your method was much too inconvenient for me. I converted the links in all about 21000 files by these few sed statements:

CODE
for i in *.html; do perl -pe 's/\?[0-z]{1,10}\.html//g' $i > oesf/data/$i; done
cd oesf/data
for i in *.html; do sed -e "s#\.\./\.\./\.\./external\.html?link=##g" $i > ../../oesf/data1/$i; done
cd ../../oesf/data1
for i in *.html; do sed -e "s#\.\./\.\./\.\./external\.gif?link=##g" $i > ../../oesf/data2/$i; done


Finally I made a cramfs image from oesf/data2 -- ready.

p.s.: Of course all this can be done in one single sed command:
CODE
for i in *.html; do sed -e 's#\?[0-z]{1,10}\.html##g' -e 's#\.\./\.\./\.\./external\.html?link=##g' -e 's#\.\./\.\./\.\./external\.gif?link=##g' $i > oesf/data/$i; done
speculatrix
Give the unfortunate outage a little while back, I realised that it's been a long time since anyone snapshotted the entire forum, so I did it again and created a squashfs (r2.2 format for compatibility with cacko).

I created a namazu free-text DB with it so that you can search with it, along with my web-server-in-a-bash-script script for accessing it as previously described. However, I didn't include namazu and namazu.cgi binaries, I put links in to /usr/local/namazu/bin/ instead as that makes it more flexible.

It looks as if the latest squashfs doesn't have backwards compat with v2 as it used to, so if there's real interest I could upload a squashfs3 archive too.
