View Full Version : MacOSXHints ftp server?

I wanted to download the compiled version of Links from this hint (http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20010129021502384), but I can't log into the MacOSXHints FTP server. What gives?

That link is four years old. That could be why it's not working.

Yea, I took the anon FTP site down a couple years back.
There are a couple ways to get links -- there's a compiled OS X package right on the links homepage:
Near the bottom, you'll see the OS X package (version 0.96) that you can just download and install.
If you want a newer version, the 1.00pre source seems to compile just fine on OS X. I downloaded it (pre12 from October 2004) from the main site, expanded the archive, cd'ed into that directory, then did:
sudo make install
This compiled perfectly (no SSL support, but I think it would be doable with a little editing of the config file), and installed in /usr/local/bin.
Finally, if you have Fink (http://http://fink.sourceforge.net/) installed, you can get version 0.98 in a precompiled form. Just do sudo apt-get install links, and you'll find it in /sw/bin when the install is done.
