Mimetex defunct?
#1
It seems the MimeTex-functionality is somehow broken. In no old thread I can see the inline formulae. THis is the same with Firefox (current version) as well with internet explorer under Win 7, home.

Firefox at least gives an error message when I click the replacement-icon to "show the graphic" - it says "internal server error - mimetex "<something> while Internet Explorer keeps its secrets for itself.

Does someone else encounter the same problem - or not? Can this be repaired? Should we settle (and translate) our site on MathJax?

Hi Gottfried, thanks for informing me about the problem.

It seems, the hosting provider suddenly removed support for 32-bit executables, which the mimetex.cgi was. So I replaced it with a 64-bit executable and now it works again Smile

Yes. I kinda mentioned the problem on main , but i thought it was due to iOS update.
I realised the real reason later.

I should have posted it here.
On the other hand you should have read that post.
I was waiting for a reply or action , which did not happen.

I went on sci.math until now.


Oh well.

Regards

Ye. Sorry, I saw your post too but I really had not time to find my password and login and tell you that I also had the same problem. But now seems that it works
