Feeds on the s23-wiki

What is RSS?

RSS is a format for syndicating news and the content of news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.

User Comments

i saw screenshot from a reader called newsmonster (, and by its description it should be one of the best arround, because it can handle so many different plattforms, etc, blabla. ... but i have problems to get it running, did anyone made good experiences with it? also there is another 'gnome-plattform'-rss-newsreader, called "straw", a python-based reader, wich should be esasily installable by using the apt-get command (debian, unstable). but in my case it was not willing to work either. [xack]


for newsmonster:

- use mozilla-browser_1.4-4.he-1_i386.deb
- install j2re1.4.1 to /usr/local/
- ln -s /usr/local/j2re1.4.1/plugin/i386/mozilla/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/, 
- start as root: mozilla /tmp/newsmonster-1.2.2-final-1065627885-pro.xpi

use mozilla as user

For Debian Users : i found "liferea" to be pretty nice. apt-get install liferea and then there is also "straw" , but it needs a lot more libs to download. both are gnome based, but can of course be used with other wm's as well.
