Compile xv 3.10a on Ubuntu and what to do now that bak.fas.harvard.edu does not exist anymore?
Credits: the information used here is a combination of this page and a comment of Simon Goodwin to this page.
All of these pages and numerous others require patches to be downloaded from a server called bak.fas.harvard.edu, which has gone offline. By chance I discovered these patches in my own archives, and thus I make them available here (see below, or just follow the instructions).
How to install xv:
sudo su - cd /tmp wget ftp://ftp.cis.upenn.edu/pub/xv/xv-3.10a.tar.gz wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/png-mng/xv-3.10a-jumbo-patches-20050501.tar.gz wget http://www.ulich.org/hints/resources/xv-3.10a-jumbo20050501-1.diff.gz tar xvzf xv-3.10a.tar.gz tar xvzf xv-3.10a-jumbo-patches-20050501.tar.gz gzip -d xv-3.10a-jumbo20050501-1.diff.gz cd xv-3.10a patch -p1 < ../xv-3.10a-jumbo-fix-patch-20050410.txt patch -p1 < ../xv-3.10a-jumbo-enh-patch-20050501.txt patch -p1 < ../xv-3.10a-jumbo20050501-1.diff chmod 755 debian/rules apt-get install libc6-dev apt-get install xlibs-dev apt-get install libjpeg62-dev apt-get install libtiff4-dev apt-get install libpng12-dev apt-get install libxt-dev make cp xv /usr/bin
Local copies of the patches; please download the actual xv 3.10a package from the original source.
