Web site and archive down *again*

Unfortunately our main server is down again, we will try to resolve the issue in the next few days.

Thanks for your comprehension.

Thx for the update

Svante said...

I think that the server is too often down :-(

jedd said...

Not sure if its official but there is a mirror. Add this to your sources.list:

deb http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/getdeb/ubuntu lucid-getdeb apps deb-src http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/getdeb/ubuntu lucid-getdeb apps

@jedd: thanks for the mirror!

LunaVorax said...

I miss getdeb :(

BostonPeng said...

Thank you jedd! By adding the mirror to my sources.list I was able to get the updated Webilder installed. For the first time since upgrading to lucid I'm able to fire up my favorite wallpaper manager/changer. that makes me one happy penguin.

IBEIT said...

hope u can fix it soon - we miss u

Emir said...

please
repair that. i am getdeb addiction and i am in an attack.
all the best...

jmcs said...

Do you have any estimate to when getdeb will be available again?

João Pinto said...

We have no estimate for the site to be available.
We are looking for a new hosting sponsorship.

Rewind said...

Thanks for the mirror to jedd from me too and good luck fixing the server.
@IBEIT - I miss playdeb more :) there was some games I'd had to try, but haven't got the time...

Chad said...

Please restore playdeb soon, as I am an addict.

ReneKalk said...

which requirements are placed on the server?

Guy said...

Thanks Jedd.

Is there some way to access a copy of the key via the mirror site as well?

Trish said...

That's unfortunate. Hope you can resolve your problems soon. Best of luck to you.

JoaoVr said...

Espero que consigas resolver esta situação brevemente

Kit said...

if it's due to using too much bandwidth, how much are we talking about? and how much bandwidth were you using before you became an apt repository?

Dan said...

Good luck finding new hosting sponsorship! Playdeb is the only repo I've seen for any linux distribution that has a decent and comprehensive list of games and emulators.

Paul said...

Does anyone know how the progress is going.

GETDEB: what kind of hosting do you need? how much bandwidth do you use on a monthly basis?

I am sure there are some of us users who will chip in and keep the valuable service going if it is reasonable.

Bob said...

Is there a reason you don't use a PPA (Launchpad) to publish your packages ?

aatomik said...

yeah, a move to playdeb/getdeb PPA would be the best... and website just for letting us know what is new ;)

Brubaker said...

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys A8A515F046D7E7CF

Key for the mirror

Brian said...

You know.. Oregon State Universities Open Source Lab, http://osuosl.org/ hosts lots of Open source projects, like Kernel.org, Drupal, one of firefox's biggest download servers, etc.

You might want to ask them...

moiso said...

Hey guys, you've seen the enormous support the community has been offering to you over the last months, please consider some of the ideas given in this blog to put it running again. Your service was a first class one!!!!

Jens said...

Yeah as already stated we all me you T_T... very much actually... If you find time soon it could be awesome to see the site up and running again... Surely you can find someone who wants to host you... MAybe as already suggested a PPA or OSUOSL?

Hope we see this brilliant service up and running again sometime soon

Dmitry said...

Miss you, getdeb. Hope you'll find server soon.

RabidChipmunk said...

I don't have a server, but I could drop a few dollars if the donation link were available.

Can a placeholder site go up that, maybe doesn't have the bandwidth for the site, but at least explains the situation and posts the donation link?

Matt Hartley said...

Honestly never understood the free ride in the first place? Seriously, force me (and others) to subscribe for $5 per month via paypal. Not this donation nonsense, but as a service! :)

Nate_Wiebe_13 said...

Why not have the site as a post for the new apps and have a ppa set up to hold the packages?

Roberto Sanchez said...

Have to agree with Matt. These services, after migrating to their new UI, became very valuable, since at that point it became just point and click to install anything. I think valuable enough that the web UI should be a subscription service. As everyone else noted, the packages on getdeb/playdeb are mirrored, so we haven't lost access completely. The thing is that people have become dependent on the web UI and don't use the native package managers in most Debian/Debian-based distros.

N said...

I've added the following line:

deb http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/getdeb/ubuntu lucid-getdeb apps

But don't i need an authentication key? Synaptic comes up with a message telling me that the souce can't me verified.

Crazymike "ZZR600" said...

Espero que dentro em breve consigam compor tudo para que se possa recorrer ao excelentes repositorios da GETDEB...

Fico á espera! ;-)

João Pinto said...

The site is up and running now.

hikaricore said...

You must be getting some massive traffic. Site is slower than the progress of the plot in The Happening. lol

Emir said...

God bless you joão

Schokobecher said...

I can confirm this.

Kip said...

I am in the process of setting up a backup mirror. It isn't fully done rsync'ing, but should be in another day or two.

## Backup site...
