Re: Pointers to start new Express Disc development

Currently I am working on the construction of a "build machine". I have been concentrating on: - preparing another computer to act as a second bench machine for testing ISO builds. My main bench machine holds the "build machine", don't want to disturb that. - the creation of a Kickstart file that co...

Re: Amahi 7 Express Disc Requirements

I have been analysing the F14 Amahi Express CD in case there are some bits that can still be used in the new version. Does anyone know when "Revisor" was used in the creation of the Express CD if it was created as a LiveCD or as a normal installation CD? I am finding some rather interesting code bit...

Re: Pointers to start new Express Disc development

Awesome. We should explore the possibility of setting up a VM server for community development. I think maybe collaborating/testing on this could help make a process out of it ...
Yes I agree once we get past the new Express production release it would be a good idea to have a VM environment.

Re: Pointers to start new Express Disc development

Have a look so far at https://wiki.amahi.org/index.php/Category:Amahi_Express_Collection Now working towards "kickstart" configurations... ... shortly foru...

Re: Pointers to start new Express Disc development

I do not know how to do this on Ubuntu. Since we're focusing on Fedora 18 at the moment anyway, let's stick to that and we will fight the Ubuntu dragon when the time comes. The way to get started on this is using a "compose" script, i think. Things have changed a lot in this area since the last tim...

Re: Pointers to start new Express Disc development

Revisor is your friend. The missing component is the first boot script to complete the automation. This should be able to be ported almost intact from previous express cds. I'll dig it and my notes up if I can find them... [ Post made via Windows Smartphone ] http://forums.amahi.org/images/mobile/W...

Re: Amahi 7 alpha 2 release

Just a note -- this update does _not_ include new Rasp-pi packages. Only 32 and 64 bit packages. We could not access the development rasp-pi on time to make this test release. What's new: - new disks area - app installs is known to be broken - new plugin system would like to test updates, user crea...

Re: Amahi 7 alpha 2 release

most virtualization solutions will allow to take snapshots, like virtualbox, vmware, proxmox, or many of the other hypervisors out there.
ok now i understand, now that makes sense.
