Hi,

today I've set up the Apache and a DynDNS-account on my Linux-machine. After that, I put the NeoOffice/J-files on this server. They can be downloaded at http://schlesi.is-a-geek.org/neooffice.html .

This server is my at-home-server, so it isn't available all the time Wink

The bandwith ist 128kBit/s, the servername is a dynDNS-name, so I hope, DNS-resolution works Very Happy. If not, please notify my at schlesix@gmx.de or via iChat/AIM (schlesix).

The server is located in Frechen near Cologne/Germany/Europe.


UPDATE: I've migrated my mirror sites to a zope server: the URL has changed to http://schlesi.is-a-geek.org:8080/NeoOffice/index.html . I've also added files for NeoOffice (binary and source code).

Thomas

Thomas,

Thanks for setting up a mirror in Germany for NeoOffice/J!

Would you be interested in translating the http://www.planamesa.com/neojava website into German? If so, let me know and I can send the you English HTML files.

BTW, I tested out your download and I found a couple of problems:

1. Your *.gz is much smaller than expected. You list 78MB as the size on your web page. However, the *.dmg file is 119326262 bytes and when I "gzip -9" it, the *.gz file is 118784325 (a reduction of only 500KB). Since the packager command that builds the *.dmg uses "gzip -9", you really can't compress the *.dmg file much.

2. You are serving the file with a "text/plain" context type. This causes most browsers to display the bits in their browser. I run Apache and here is what I did to work around this:

- Rename the *.dmg.gz to *.dmg.
- Create a file called ".htaccess" (note the dot in the file name) in the directory where the *.dmg file is and put the following lines in it:

Code:
AddType application/octet-stream .dmg
AddType text/plain .md5

<Files *.gz.md5>
RemoveEncoding .gz
</Files>


Hope you find the above helpful.

Patrick


that you are serving a *.gz file with a text/plain context type.

Hi Patrick,

please send me the English HTML-files for translation.

BTW: I'm unexperienced in HTML. Do you know a free WYSIWYG-HTML-editor running on Mac OS X or Linux?

Before announcing my mirror in this forum, I've tested the downloads with Safari 1.0 (v85), and I didn't have any problems. I should better have tested with other browsers, too? Wink

I've made now the changes you've described.

Thomas,

I tested out the download and it works perfect in Mozilla and IE. Those content type settings are always a pain to figure it. It took me several hours to get my Apache web server to work right.

I will send you the English HTML files to your schlesix@gmx.de address tonight or Tuesday morning (California, US time). But first I will add your mirror to the English download page.

I have found that Mozilla's "Composer" tool is pretty good for editing simple web pages (and all of the NeoJ pages are very simple). It is not good for making web pages with forms, but it is very good for a free tool.

Ed and Patrick,
Do you wish to have a French translation of NeoOffice (aqua and /J) pages?
I don't take commitment on delay but this is the kind of job I can do.
I hoped to be able to help coding, at first, but I must face that my programing skill is back, and too weak now, for such a project, as is my spare time.
My mail address is publicly available here under (and already full of spam anyway).

If you want to provide any translations of web pages, feel free. Native (or multilingual) speakers can do a much better job then babelfish!

If there's an actual interest in setting up mutiple languages for the main websites, Patrick and I can probably work something out like FTP access for an "fr" subdir of the site or something. Nuke provides some basic multilingual capabilities of its own (e.g. publishing news that is only available in French) although I haven't explored these options myself.

Let me know about your level of interest and I can definitely find a way to host translations and hopefully make them dynamic so translation volunteers can update content by themselves Smile

I've set up a ftp-server for download.

The URL ist ftp://schlesi.is-a-geek.org/NeoOffice . The link in the posting above can be used, too.

Thank you.
This allow to use a GUI ftp application to initiate and resume transfert.

PostPosted: Sat Nov 08, 2003 4:21 am    Post subject: NeoOffice-builds Reply with quote

Hi,

now, when NeoOffice compiles on Jaguar and Panther after moving the source to OOO 1.1, I'll offer a cvs-build on Panther for download for those, who don't want to build, but test the app.

The compressed *dmg.Z with NeoOffice.app *for Panther only* can be downloaded via ftp here:

ftp://schlesi.is-a-geek.org/NeoOffice/NeoOffice/

The filename of the *dmg.Z contains the build date as YYYY-MM-DD.

NeoOffice.dmg.Z points to the latest build.



Actually, it has a size of ca. 120MB. Informations about the build-date an MD5-checksum of the latest build can be found here:

http://schlesi.is-a-geek.org:8080/NeoOffice/Neo_Download_de (German)
http://schlesi.is-a-geek.org:8080/NeoOffice/Neo_Download_en (English)

Nvu has been well received by a colleague who asked me the same question recently.

[edit] I should mention it is available in Mac OS X, Linux and Windoze flavours. [/edit]
