KnowledgeTree and PmWiki

I managed to get KnowledgeTree 3.7 working on Ubuntu 10.4 (notes here). I also managed to bridge PmWiki to KT's WebDAV back end using davfs2 (notes here). To make a long story short, I can:
  • store my digital magazines (Linux Journal, Hakin9, BSD Magazine, etc.) in KT
  • search them via KT or Namazu
  • read them via KT, Namazu, or PmWiki
  • or put them on display in PmWiki
I can also point a WebDAV-capable file manager at the back end and move files around. As always, it's a bit overkill for my uses, but it's fun doing it.
