Downloading Ximian Desktop

Since Novell came on the Ximian scene, it isn't trivial to find the Ximian Desktop download instructions (mostly because Novell wants you to buy Novell Desktop instead).

For now you can try this to see if it works:

# wget -q -O - >> |sh

It might not. Eventually Novell is going to close it off.

Update: As of 23 February 2005, it still works. The key is to select a mirror site to do the update, not the Red Carpet option.

Update: As of 1 April 2005, it no longer works; none of the mirrors appear to have anything useful in them. Pity.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
