New ISO image is on the site: /pub/sword/iso
'image' is moved to 'latest'
'mini' contains a symbolically linked directory structure for a small
download to test installs for the cd. There are 4 modules included with
mini.tar.[gz|bz2] is from 'mini' (16 megs-- is this still too big,
Torsten? I can try to cut out even more)
setup now does a much better job with icons. It looks for a redhat
install first and places menu links in /etc/X11/applnk, then tries
KDEDIR, and then `gnome-config --prefix`, then falls back to some likely
directories like /usr/share/gnome/apps, /usr/share/applnk/,
/opt/kde/share/applnk/, then finally to the users home dir:
setup will now also parse new options for <binary> tags in setup.xml:
menu="Submenu/Submenu/..." and name="Application Name" These do a much
better job with handling multiple binary entries.
I think our setup is almost there. The only big issue from my point of
view is shared libraries-- for the setup tool itself if glibc6.1 and
gtk+ are not install, installmgr, and our apps.
Seems to work great on a Windows box or RH6.1 box with gnome and kde
PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR EXPERIENCE ON YOUR CONFIGURATION. I'm hoping
we'll get more feedback now with a much smaller test download
