Hi!

We have an alpha of Amahi for Fedora 9 (search the wiki). It is not recommended unless you would like to hack :-)

It may be a few days until it goes to beta, which should work nearly fully.

Thanks for the Downloads
I could now download binaries (yum repos) and source code (svn). Thank you!

Re: NO DOWNLOAD!
I'm tempted to just say "RTFM" ;-) ...


We would rather not post the direct links
anywhere for the reasons we have mentioned already, since we're starting and don't have mirrors yet.


All you have to do is type http:// at the front,
then the repo (f8.amahi.org is the current one, f7 is the
previous one) and add the name of the directories for the RPMs at the end you can download to your heart's content. This is meant to be used as a yum repo.

For the source code, you can get the rpms directly, or better yet, go to the sourceforge page (http://sourceforge.net/projects/amahi ) and hit the svn repo (http://sourceforge.net/svn/?group_id=197148).


C'mon, send us patches!


Below is an excerpt from our technology page (http://www.amahi.org/support/technology ) (soon to be in a developers area).


Get the Code


We are taking the approach of adding a repo to the GNU/Linux install process to installing Amahi. So, there is no conventional software "download" to install "by hand."


However, if you need to get the code by hand, it's in our repos. NOTE: We do not link to them directly on purpose, because web spiders unnecessarily crawl them, sucking the bandwith which otherwise we'd like to be available for you for a faster install.


The code is in the directories i386, x86_64 and noarch of the repo. The current repo can be accessed at f8.amahi.org. The source code is in the svn SourceForge repo.

Re: NO DOWNLOAD!

Correctly formatted my message here, sorry for the double post:

So, there seems to be no download.

Clearly, Fedora Core CD/DVD does not contain Amahi.


> The repos are also available, if you really want to


> dig them

So you have a download link somewhere, but you don't want to tell exactly where? Does this obscure place include source code for Amahi?

Download is just the Fedora DVD - Re: NO DOWNLOAD!
Hi,

Technically, there is a download. It's the Fedora CD/DVD!

You should read the requirements (the first thing at the

signup page).

The rest downloads automatically while installing Fedora!

The repos are also available, if you really want to dig them (they are also listed in the wiki). They are not prominent because otherwise web spiders kill our bandwith.

However, the whole goal of the project is to make it easy to install, all from one place.

Amahi project is in Beta, so the program is not open publicly. If you would like an invite before we open it up, do not hesitate to get in touch.

You really have to look at what the project is trying to achieve: make it easy to install a complex device.

Just looking for a download link is a bit like trying to go to a stadium expecting to see goals when the event is really a dog show or a motorcycle show, then complaining there were no goals. Pardon the analogy :-)

NO DOWNLOAD!
This program does not offer source code or even a binary download. I checked both Freshmeat page and program homepage.

Currently (2008-05-25):

- Freshmeat homepage does not have a download link

- Program homepage has a big "Get it" link. However, the next page requires your personal information, including email address:

https://www.amahi.org/user

But that's not enough! You are also required to have an invitation key:

Am I missing a download link, or is Amahi currently in vaporware state?
