How to help

To run one or more FortuneCity downloaders, you'll need to be on Linux or a Linux-like OS.

Setting up:

git clone git://github.com/ArchiveTeam/fortunecity.git
cd fortunecity
./get-wget-warc.sh

Check the output: does it say wget is successfully compiled? Great!

Now you can run a download client. Choose a nickname and run:

./seesaw.sh YOURNICK

The script should start downloading and uploading. If it works, feel free to run a few more!

Please do not run more than 10 downloaders. It won't work. We need many individuals making small contributions.

If you want to stop, you can just kill the scripts. To stop gracefully,

touch STOP

and the script will stop after the current user.

There is no need to run upload-finished.sh. seesaw.sh will automatically upload your finished users to us.

Common Problems

configure: error: --with-ssl was given, but GNUTLS is not available.

You don't have the proper headers available to be able to compile wget-warc. It should be fairly easy to fix though. If you're using a Debian or Ubuntu-based Linux distribution:

   apt-get install libgnutls-dev

If you're using a Fedora distribution:

   yum install gnutls-devel

If you're using FreeBSD :

   cd /usr/ports/security/gnutls/
   make all install clean

If you're using something else you'll just have to poke around in the documentation and figure it out :)

Archiving is well under way. Check the tracker for an up to date status report.
