Great idea, we're still using the software but have found it is segmentation faulting on the latest stable version of Debian. Would be great to be able to compile from source.

more Core
shame it core dumps after it runs out of memory on a FreeBSD SMP machine


and it complains about bogus addresses when it wants to clear its malloc spaces..


using a "int" to keep track of 32bit addresses ?

Good idea! I'm implementing Alkaline for several Government clients who now pick Alkaline mostly on implementation speed & cost. An open source Alkaline would make it even more interesting due to recent interest in Open Source from our (Dutch) government.

I'm really interested by integrating Alkaline on a site I will work on. But this site will be almost full java : is it nevertheless possible to interface Alkaline on java sites ? Do you have some examples of Alkaline used successfully by java JSP/servlets sites ?

Re: Alkaline open source?
Well, that is not going to make Alkaline much faster ;) It's totally counterproductive to rewrite a search engine of tens of thousands lines of code for kicks.

Alkaline open source?
Alkaline is now used by over a hundred sites. We give it away for free to non-commercial companies, but the commercial vs. non-commerical usage statistics are 50/50. Please visit us and try Alkaline. We would appreciate a comment on freshmeat - this is a great site, share you thought!


We are asking ourselves a question about making Alkaline open-source. What do you think?
