Novell

scsirob (246572) writes "Novell has maintained free developer support for many years on it's news server. Just yesterday, all novell.devsup.* newsgroups received the following message: "This forum is now closed to new traffic but will remain open in a read-only status for reference purposes. Novell has made the decision to phase out forums for API Developer support excep for GroupWise. Novell partners with a valid agreement will continue to be supported via your existing contract. Customers with developer related questions are welcome to post messages in the technical support forums which are not oficially monitored by Novell, but are used for user-to-user conversations regarding Novell products. You can find the link to the technical support forums at http://www.novell.com/forums" Is Novell not interested in helping out developers for their products anymore? Could this be related to the Microsoft agreement?"

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
