Quban - a binary newsgrabber for Linux and OS/2


Source code

The source code for the latest Linux and Windows version of quban is quban-0.7.5.tar.gz.

OS/2 zip file

Quban has been ported to OS/2 and the executable is in quban-0.7.5-os2.7z. Thanks to Elbert Pol for the port.

Building from source code:


After downloading the source code :

  • cp quban-0.7.0.tar.gz <your chosen installation dir>
  • cd <your chosen installation dir>
  • tar zxvf quban-0.7.0.tar.gz
  • cd quban-0.7.0
  • qmake -recursive CONFIG+=release Quban.pro
  • make

If the above steps successfully create the quban executable then either dive in and try it straight away or check the Setup and use page for details about getting started...

If you encounter problems building quban then check the INSTALL file which contains details of common problems and their solutions

I've successfully run Quban using various BerkeleyDB versions, between 4.8 and 5.2. As Quban is based upon Klibido it may run against even earlier versions, back to 4.2 (if you need to use them).
