freedesktop.org down?


I'm trying to install the ROX filer and the install saying that my mime database isn't up to snuff or current. I tried getting the "latest" from freedesktop.org but when I click the link to download it, I get a "file not found." I tried manually ftp-ing to that site and the same thing. Google hasn't turned up any other sources of this for me that seem to work - all the links I tried (4 or 5) timed out on me or otherwise didn't actually offer it for download.

Maybe it will work tomorrow. In the meantime, anyone know of an alternate location? RPM would be fine I suppose but I prefer compiling the source.
