[pivotCE] Preware.org woes: feeds/site down as domain slips away

Recommended Posts

Having trouble accessing Preware feeds in either Preware or WOSQI today?  Tried getting to www.preware.org and failed?  Well, you’re not alone.  Read on for the details.

UPDATE – Rod Whitby chimed in on the discussion (linked below). He confirmed the domain was newly expired and taken over. The webOS Internals team is contacting the individual for their demands but mentioned they also purchased preware.net to use as a backup if need be. Preware will be updated as well to reflect to domain change. He did offer a temporary solution for ipkg.preware.org. Edit your local DNS to point it to the IP 140.211.169.161.

pivotCE reached out to the webOS Internals team today on Twitter for answers.  It seems the sysadmin team has been alerted.  As for the course of action they’ll take, I’m not sure.  But while we all wait, have a look at your favorite “whois” site for the likely culprit. Don’t have one?  I did the hard work for you.

whois1whois2Simply put, someone snatched the domain.  See the “whois” result from
http://whois.domaintools.com/preware.org.

What does this mean for feed access?  Well, it’s hard to tell for the moment but for now we’ll just have to wait and see.  Hopefully some type of temporary solution can be put in place soon.

This has put the fear into some people (me included). You may remember when the webOS patches portal was hacked and permanently closed.  Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself.  Speculation would say it won’t because LuneOS will be using the same feeds for Preware2.

Folks are discussing this topic over at webOS Nation.  Feel free to chime in.

On a personal note, to the person who seems to have snatched the domain, not cool.  Seriously.  Not cool.

      Hi All Has anyone with a 2019 model Webos 4.5 or above got any of the Freeview IPTV channels working eg. 211,  261,  265 etc. I am trying to workout if this really is a problem affecting every TV made by LG in 2019 or just a few of us. If it is every LG tv then why are there so few people highlighting and reporting this, If it is just a few of us the maybe is is a set or batch problem. I just struggle to understand why LG would remove functionality from a tv that has more pro

      Hi All, Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ? The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service" floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update. I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the prog

    • Disney Plus on LG webOS TVs

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus
