Question Isn't 'Nvu' in repo?


Hi guys

I want to install 'Nvu' but am unable to find it in the Fedora repo. Can someone confirm this? Or is there some error on my part!!

Code:
[shrikant@shricore64 ~]$ yum list | grep nvu
[shrikant@shricore64 ~]$ sudo yum install nvu
Password:
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: nvu
Nothing to do
My active repos >> core, extras, livna, updates, freshrpms.

Thanks

Nope. NVU is not in the FC repos. I had to install it manually on my system. No biggie... you'll need to d-load it from NVU's website and install deprecated libs to get it to work.

Here's the link for FC3 NVU. It works fine on FC 5 and 6:

http://cvs.nvu.com/download/nvu-1.0-...a3-kde.tar.bz2

Here's the link for the necessary deprecated libs (install them first):

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...eprecated-libs

Enjoy!

You might want to consider that the reason its not in any repos is that the application has not been maintained for a long time.

Its replacement is called kompozer, but activity on that seems pretty slow to me.

You can probably use Mozilla's Sea Monkey WYSIWYG HTML editor as a drop in replacement for NVU

Myeh... *shrugging* To each their own. NVU is my fav. I've tried most of the others. I have it installed on all my distros. NVU is still being maintained by its authors. I have current versions in the repos of most of my distros (not counting Fedora Core, for some reason).

Not counting Debian, either. Of the distros in your sig, those are the two most likely to actually toss a prgram out if they think the maintainer is not up to par.

Uh... no. It was in Deb "Testing" repos, I believe. But yes, you are 100% correct about Deb being that way for "stable" repos, for sure.

It was, but it's not now. They pulled it from all Debian repos about the time of the Firefox ordeal. At the time, I was a bit shocked.

Hmm... interesting reading, Rich, and a shame, too. Does anyone really know why NVU was removed from Deb's repos? I can't seem to find a definitive answer.

Here are a couple pertinant conversations among Debian developers. (links from the thread I referred above.)

Strange. According the app's website, wiki, developer's blog, and development forums, the app is being maintained and improved. Maybe one day it'll be returned to the Deb repos.
