maybe a dumb suggestion ....

Unread postby hamei » Mon Jun 02, 2008 7:11 am

How about a nekoware directory of just release notes and patches ? Sometimes the nekoware version is elderly but I get the whole thing just for the release notes and hints on how to compile or set up. Seems like a waste but then maybe I am the only one who doesn't have the entire repository downloaded to local :(

I believe Joerg has a setup in his wiki where you can access the release notes directly. I'd allow the same here (it's done via a script) but there's a group of Turkish "hackers" who think it's great fun to deface the wiki with their "leet" hacker bullshit when I disable the captcha.

You can find the content from every nekoware package on http://www.nekoware.net/ . Its a wiki which i only used for testing and playing around with mediawiki before i start bothering Pete for changes.

Use the search on the left or just visit
http://www.nekoware.net/wiki/Category:MIPSpro_Builds
http://www.nekoware.net/wiki/Category:Unknown_Builds
http://www.nekoware.net/wiki/Category:GCC_Builds

Update:
I see there is also a Nekoware category
http://www.nekoware.net/wiki/Category:Nekoware


For every package at least exists a
Main Page http://www.nekoware.net/wiki/Mysql5_(neko_mips4)
Filelist http://www.nekoware.net/wiki/Mysql5_(neko_mips4):Files

and if exists
Patches http://www.nekoware.net/wiki/Mysql5_(neko_mips4):Patches

The original relnote file is part of the Main Page. You have to scroll down and expand the table to see it.

Thanks guys ! big help !

Most likely ... but if you had China Telecom service you'd want to download as little as possible too. Remember when 33.6kbps was a fast modem ? Well ..... :roll:

Buy the nekoware dvds and setup rsync for the rest.
