Hey,

I'd like to put Wikipedia on my iLiad; anyone got suggestions?

There are obviously quite alot of different ways to do this.

Yeah, I've been thinking about this too. But I couldn't find any suitable pre-generated html downloads... perhaps one of the porting gurus could have a look at it?

Mobipocket Version

There are some offline versions to be found:
German:
Mobipocket: http://www.beam-ebooks.de/ebook/667
TomeRaider:http://siebn.de/index.php?page=wikipedia

English
TomeRaider: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikiped...aider_database

So it seems, only german speaking readers could try the mobi version...

I wonder if either of these may help find a solution

TomeRaider gets really high marks but doesn't seem to be Linux (yet?). Still. it is pretty much everything else. Must be portable.
Probably lots more out there

I've compiled Apache 1.3. SQLite, and PHP5 for the iLiad. I'm not sure if it's feasable to run a web server from the iLiad for the purpose of wikipedia, but if anyone would like me to provide the above, I can.

Could be worth a shot... if it is not to much trouble setting it up. I think the performance should be acceptable. I don't know what the "static" versions of wikipedia requires -- all I know is that I could not find any "really static" versions for download (by really static I mean simple html-files).

I have been wanting a wiki for the iLiad for a long while and started a thread on it a while ago. In my research I looked up a bunch of different alternatives, unfortunately not many would easily fit the bill for non-hacker types. At that point in time I was limited to Windoze and was only really interested in wysiwg interfaces. Some of the potential solutions worked on Java enabled html. I am no hacker type so trying to get that to run on a iLiad was beyond my abilities.

I don't know why I have not thought of it previously (I have only recently started using Linux on my home computer) but a very wiki like program is Tomboy, a notes taking program for linux. During my initial research into wikis this little program was mentioned a number of times. I have not had too much time to play with it but it might be able to fit this need. Maybe Portmeister Adam B. could help out on this?

So I tried and got this: (see attached picture)

>Multi-part eBooks are not supported.

With dictionary support "soon" to be finished, there seems to be another
construction site looming ahead...

The contents of the very same "wikipedia_1_8.zip" does work flawlessly
with my Nokia 9500 and with some limitations under the windows version
of the mobipocket reader (you have to navigate manually to the subbook
where your queried article is located).

BTW: Should'nt this thread be removed to 'iLiad Content'?
