LinuxTracker Status- Call for Help

#1 Postby Occam » Sun Mar 27, 2011 9:17 am

The current status on LinuxTracker is that there are 17 MEPIS official-release torrents, going back to SimplyMEPIS 7.0 and AntiX M7.5.

7 of the torrents have 2 or fewer seeders, so we could use some help.

I can't get in to LinuxTracker.

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Call to a member function set() on a non-object in /home/mangeli/linuxtracker.org/include/functions.php on line 844

Now that lenny is oldstable and etch no longer receives any security updates, is there any point keeping a MEPIS 7.0 torrent going?

I think not. My own feeling is that no encouragement should be given to install MEPIS 7.0.

@ anti,
I had to re-register to get on, last week.

There is probably not much reason to worry about torrents at this time, with M11 coming out in the near future, just a thought.

It uses the MEPIS 7.0 repos along with debian stable (etch at release time) and debian testing, (lenny at release time).
It's sources.list always used the stable, testing nomenclature.

I do know what the problem was, but I never could get 7 to load and when I did, it would not run right. Hung on to 6.5 until well after 8 was out, I am still on 8, 64 bit.
Updates are still coming in for 8 at times.

Well, you can still download them, and the repositories are still around.

Yes and 3.43 and 6.0 can still be downloaded, although the repos are gone.
