Ask Qole if he’ll let you use some of his server space — which is (I think) available for just this sort of thing… Maybe you can get your money back for (most of) this year.

Thanks Tim, I have other hosting options but, I needed to renew tablethacker domain, my blog is the best place to find information about my hackings, the wordpress blog is also hosted at the same hosting company. So I figured I would pay for the next year, then tablethacker as a whole will just go away. The KDE install process (deb) has to go to tablethacker.com to download the full package to complete the install. I do not plan on rewriting the install debs, or keeping tablethacker alive. If someone has interest in the domain let me know, but I will be using it until Dec 2010.

So I guess is not just the end of the KDE 3.5, but also of Tablet Hacker.

Well, it was nice to read you all this time (since I figured out I wanted to buy a N810, like two years ago).

I guess I will keep reading you in Tablet Talk.

Bye.

I was just thinking of asking if you had died or what happened to you.

Well it seems to me, that grabbing all of the packages, putting them on a home server and editing the hosts file to direct the tablethacker.com to the home server would do the trick…

I love your KDE “front-end” on top of Maemo chroot and it’s sad to see you go.

I’m gonna give my theory a shot when I get a chance.

I was also wondering if the source for those packages was available (obviously not the original source, but the modifications)

:( still alive

its not a chroot, its just running on the same OS as hildon/matchbox. Its maemo underneath and kde on top ;)

funny, about the sources, they are all the original sources. NO modifications were made to ANY source packages. This is all just Linux at its best. Imagine if someone who knew what they were doing actually tried optimizing it.

I removed that web page you pointed to, its all old, look at http://tablethacker.com/software get these two files KDE358v2.tar.bz2 and SUPv4.tgz

If you want to install this manually

As root user from the following

cd /
tar jxvf /path/to/KDE358v2.tar.bz2
tar zxvf /path/to/SUPv4.tgz

done!

Hi penguinbait,

If you want, I can probably take over the hosting of the tablethacker domain, and you can put your files there, so the install files won’t break. Drop me a line if that interests you.

Hey Penguinbait!

If you want, I have some free space left in my server, so that you can host files free of charge!
