NcFTP 3.1.7

Announcements of packages that are now released.

Postby effo » Wed Mar 31, 2004 12:31 pm

Believe it or not, I've managed to compile and package the great ftp client <a href='http://www.ncftpd.com/' target='_blank'>NcFTP 3.1.7</a>. It compiled right out of the box, but I did a minor change to it. If you're root, and your home directory is / (which is true in FREESCO), NcFTP does not save any bookmarks for you. I like the bookmark feature, so I modified the code to save bookmarks even if you're root. The bookmarks (and other settings) are stored in a directory name .ncftp. It should be in / but in order to keep it over reboots, it is symblinked to /pkg/usr/local/ncftp/.ncftp. The symblink is recreated after each reboot.

As this is my first package, I bet there is a zillion things to comment, so keep 'em comming :cry:

This is a beta release and can be downloaded from <a href='http://zimmy.mine.nu/freesco/packages/ncftp-3.1.7-effo_BETA' target='_blank'>here</a>. The package does only include the ftp-client itself, all other tools has been left out.
