Although I'm incredibly impressed that Dreamweaver MX runs flawlessly on an RPM install of WINE, I don't much of it's functionality.

I like the file listing on the left hand side, and the fact it will upload when I save a document. I like the colour coding, and the CSS completion can be useful.

But these are all quite basic things, and there must be an openSource alternative? That is preferably also compiled for Windows.

I'm guessing quite a few of you are PHP developers as well - so any recommendations? :)

I don't use it myself so I can't comment directly, but here's a site that lists several alternatives: http://www.linuxeq.com/

NVU is what my googling came up with too. But I'm seeing a lot of people struggling to compile it on FC6..

www.osalt.com seems like a good site.

Before giving up on Nvu, go here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=137577 and download the file from Scotta. It's working fine on my FC-6 machine.

Yep, NVU compiles on FC6 with a bit of tweaking. I even managed to get it compiled for X86_64. So I'd say it works.

I'm on ISDN for the next two weeks (urgh!) and I figured I'd leave this as I didn't really have time for downloading loads of different versions trying to get it working.

However, that's just a straight RPM he's linking too. So I'm wgetting it now, and I'll give it a try. If it doesn't work, I may well leave this until when I get back. Afterall, Dreamweaver is working flawlessly on WINE - and I'm really impressedd at that! It's not like those buggy Glide to DirectX Wrappers from years gone past...
