http://maemo.org/maemo_training_material/maemo4.x/ Link at bottom for source code of examples is broken (404) http://maemo.org/maemo_training_material/maemo4.x/files/ Assigned to General because there is no "Documentation" component in bugzilla. Cheers
Thanks! Confirmed. Error 404: Page could not be found. The requested URL /maemo_training_material/maemo4.x/files/ could not be found on this server. Wed, 07 Jan 2009 14:13:45 +0200 Moving to right product-component.
...and this is still valid after 5 months, sigh. Is Jarmo the correct assignee for such stuff at all? Does it make sense to CC Dave? STEPS: 1. Go to http://maemo.org/maemo_training_material/maemo4.x/ . 2. Try any of the links. RESULT: 404 SOLUTION: Please remove completely as this has been moved to http://maemo.org/development/training/ .
The problem is I don't know how to modify the links on the original page, and I don't know where the files really are. Where is this stuff stored? On what server? How was it uploaded? Isn't the 4.x stuff completely outdated now? I definitely want to stay CCed, but it's because I want to learn how this is done.
Look at http://maemo.org/maemo_training_material/maemo4.x/html/ The problem is that the directories got moved to "_Chinook" but the links didn't get updated. I don't know where the source files are kept or how they're generated, but I probably should. From what I can see, the 4.x training material is linked from http://maemo.org/development/training/chinook/ - and I have corrected all the links there. The root page you point to shouldn't be linked to from anywhere (if it is, it's probably only here that it's still linked) - and all of the links are correct in the places where I have control over them. Is that good enough to close this bug? Or can you point me to any page where there's a link to http://maemo.org/maemo_training_material/maemo4.x/ ?

Valid links for maemo training material are in mameo.org Dcoumentation pages here: http://maemo.org/development/training/ (index page) http://maemo.org/development/training/maemo_technology_overview_content.html http://maemo.org/development/training/maemo_getting_started_content.html http://maemo.org/development/training/maemo_application_development_content.html http://maemo.org/development/training/maemo_platform_development_content.html Chinook version of training courses are no longer supported as from training material point of view Chinook and Diablo are so close together that there is no point to maintain Chinook anymore. Diablo training material can be used also for Chinook if needed. Most probably nobody wants to have Chinook courses as Diablo platform can be flashed to all devices...
Hi Jarmo, The point is that the old links are still referenced (in blog entries, on the website in some places, and on the page linked in the URL field here). I have minimised the effect by ensuring that the new training material is referenced everywhere, but the fact is that previously working links don't work any more - and so we need to fix that. There are two ways to fix that which I can see: 1. Ensure the old links redirect to Chinook training material 2. Ensure that the old links redirect to Diablo training material Unfortunately, I have no idea how to install redirects with Midgard, and I don't know where these pages are stored on the web server, or have access to the server, to manually set up redirects. Dave.
I do not know either how Midgard pages could be redirected. We have this generic problem with Midgard that couple of times in year we move stuff around and although we try to maintain internal integrity (maemo.org site internal links are usually fixed) there are a lot of references from outside maemo.org site that cannot be fixed by us. I close this now as fixed and let's try not to move that Maemo training material anymore from this URL http://maemo.org/development/training/ Starting to use Maemo Info Center for official documentation solves this problem somewhat as it introduces link to the latest Mameo platform release http://library.maemodocs.nokia.com/ which redirects to the altest platform specific URL like http://library.maemodocs.nokia.com/fremantle/index.jsp for now and to http://library.maemodocs.nokia.com/harmattan/index.jsp when Harmattan docs will be available
Henri knows how to redirect Midgard pages, as does Rambo & Neithan.
