Broken Links in HOWTO

Reported by: keemllib@… Owned by: Robert Kulagowski
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.24
Component: Documentation Version: Master Head
Severity: medium Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

This patch is the result of trying to connect to 80+ links in the HOWTO. No email links were tested.

13 links were changed and some text was adjusted to agree with these recommendations.

All links were tested (with wget), and 404 errors were resolved or removed. Links to some sites that returned a 303 (redirection) code were adjusted.

I tripped over some DataDirect? and 0.22 text that was changed to Schedules Direct and 0.23 as well.

Finally, I added but commented out, an update flagged for 0.24 regarding Tuning, see: <item>t/F/T...

Thanks for the help of Dan Wilga on Mandriva, Ajay Sharma on gaming and Mike Dean for the heads up on modifying .sgml not .html.

This is no longer a patch. I wasn't able to add the attachment without multiple changes like those in the "attachment mythtv-HOWTO.sgml added" line.

Changed to get past spam filters:

  • HTTPEQ to url followed by '='
  • NAMEEQ, name followed by '='
  • WASURL, drop the WAS and use lower case
  • ptth, is backwards
  • slashslash, change to the obvious 2 characters

I'd be happy to resubmit this if there's better way of avoiding the spam filters.
