Osirix XML-RPC

Found this screencast today which show how Osirix can be remote controlled through XML-RPC.

This should make it possible to do some interaction between GNUmed and Osirix. Since more and more hospitals hand Dicom CDs to doctors it might make sense to have GNUmed remote control Osirix to open and display the studies.

There even seems to be an XML-RPC test tool available at ClubPacs Western Michigan

GNUmed 0.8.5 for Mac OSX

Occasionally we have access to a Mac. Make that Mac OS 10.4 (quite dated). Turns out the work put in to make GNUmed 0.7.6 run on Mac was worth the effort. I was able to run an unaltered GNUmed 0.8.5 without any lock ups.

Expecting a user to run GNUmed from a tarball is not really state of the art. The last Mac bundle we have ships GNUmed 0.5 and does not really reflect the current feature set.

Meanwhile we have packaged GNUmed 0.8.5. Please download and report success or failure.

Another solution would be to work on the MacPorts port of GNUmed. I am not aware of any effort. Given the current state of affairs it would be safe to say that the quickest way to run GNUmed on a Mac would be to use the tarball and run this.

Any reports on success or failure are appreciated. You can use the bug tracker to send feedback.

Best regards,
GNUmed team

GNUmed project offline - until new server is ready

Hi all,

The server hardware (not the harddrives) died on us. The server is hosted by Hetzner which has been kind enough to plug the harddrives in a new server and provide a rescue shell. We do have all data so no harm done. Sourcecode is hosted offsite so no loss there. The wiki and some downloads are hosted on the failed server. We are working hard to restore the site on a new server.


Sourcecode is at
Debian packages can be obtained via Debian servers
Ubuntu packages can be obtained via Ubuntu GNUmed PPA
Windows packages will be back after the server is back up

Best regards,
Sebastian Hilbert
