tried the iso in vmware. didn't boot...

Dumb question: vmware can boot iso images? It's a long time since I used one emulator(when Haiku booted to a graphic interface for the first time)

This is a ISO image converted from a Raw one for Qemu.. maybe using 'qemu-image convert' command could help

Virtual machines can mount ISO under CD-ROM. This should always work for ISOs. I haven't tried myself but guessing what Karl must have tested.

Unzipped size looks crazy big to me. You put lots of programs in there. I guess only for burning to DVD-R. Looks like good work from your description. Later,

yes, i mounted the iso within vmware. you can boot haiku's official iso's this way.

you can't just convert a hard disk image to an iso. you'll miss the bootloader for the CD. I gave instructions in the forum how to do this.

If someone wants I can host these builds, especially if your bandwidth limited. I also have a machine that I can dedicate to the builds.

Help me get it setup.

I can configure all of the build styles, ISO,VM,RAW,Anyboot etc

is there anyway I can host a svn or git that I could let you acess on Haiku ? Would seem easier and I will reformat and do a fresh haiku nightly install to get it 100% up to date.

This way you can stream your changes up to the machine and it can handle the heavy lifting.

the easiest way might be to install redmine on your server (project management with svn and git, amongst others). osdrawer uses it. then michael could submit everything there, and other ppl could contribute to it...

+2 # RE: RE: RE: Senryukarl 2011-02-11 07:08
I don't think the image is bootable. You may be able to use a Haiku ISO (if you have two CD/DVD drives), or a bootable Haiku USB stick, press space at boot, and then scan for the Senryu boot volume on the DVD and boot that way until Michael fixes the distro.

I tried this method, but does not see the CD in the drive...
BTW. Can you see some directories inside after burn or mounted iso?

Karl, just remove the download file and leave listing. Then give Michael about 7 days to get new ISO built & uploaded or remove listing then.

I think Michael has never mounted an ISO in virtual machine (like QEMU or VirtualBox) for testing. That's why this ISO was never checked and assumed working.

i'd still like to carry forward with the haiku build bot idea. I have the machines, and the bandwidth. the real question is how do we get michael to the machine.

Michael any ideas ?
 
 
0 # RE: RE: Senryumichaelvoliveira 2011-02-11 22:36
hhahahaha! It's very simple in truth..

First, you will create a Haiku copy from svn. Later fork it, and rename to Senryu (develop/haiku/trunk and develop/senryu/trunk)

after, go to senryu trunk and create the generated folders for an hybrid, and do ../configure to generate buildtools

I will send the all dozen files to create the distro to you later..

I've not managed to build a bootable image ever.

Might seem simple to you.

I could explain how to overhaul a turbine, but wouldn't seem simple to you.

currently working on a little earlier version of Haiku + QT 4.7.1

few observations with test Senryu:
- I would use the qt version 4.7.1- now is definitely more stable and better tested than 4.8.0

- I used Arora, unfortunately, does not offer much more than WebPositive in the latest version and can crash on several pages - I use Transmission and Kadu on qt - this work fine.

- Wallpaper on Senryu is fine but logo is a nightmare;)

- Instead LaunchBox I would DynamicLaunchBox - although this does not work on recent rev Haiku (sic)

Observations on the fast...

Yes, should always try to avoid x.0 versions because you'll run into more bugs.

Problem is everything should get re-compiled, where possible, when releasing distro (just like Alphas do). That makes the most stable release but a) takes lots more time to do and b) harder.

I see that Michael searched images for Senryu and grabbed one of the first images that appears.
www.newsarama.com/comics/Senryu-Indie-Comic-Review-100108.html

To compare logos, here are Ubuntu & Debian ones. Notice how simple they look. Someone should come up with unique logo for Senryu too.

+1 # RE: RE: Senryutonestone57 2011-02-13 17:41
The ISO was not bootable.

Michael created a RAW image to use instead. You have to download and use the RAW. You should delete the ISO.

Michael wrote, "- This is a *7zipped RAW image (1,2 GB extracted) - cut down 100mb this time ;)
Tested on Qemu - it boots!"
 
 
+1 # RE: Senryuthatguy 2011-02-13 19:27
Micheal sent me the files. I will try to get everything compiled and tested tonight.

I geuss the question is, should we take the opportunity to really make senryu more then its been ? I have plenty of computing power and bandwidth to make a truly kick ass release.

Is it worth including alot more then has been included in the past on a ISO version ?


I can do 2 version

cd and DVD.

we get 4.4 gb of useable space on the dvd.

Maybe its time for a fat disk.

Pretty much the sky is the limit on Raw files.

I think better to discuss this in new forum post to not overload this thread with comments for next Senryu release.

4GB DVD is too big. Problem is that many users won't use all the applications installed. Example, I don't play any Haiku games so if you included 20 games on the DVD then I would have to delete them. I don't use Blender or Clockwerk, 2 more programs I'd have to delete. Many users won't use CVS, cmake, Haikuporter or even development tools, etc., etc.

It is about striking the best balance, between size + popular programs, which is what Michael was going for & why his RAW image is 1.2GB in size.

The best way is to put popular software in Senryu. Top downloaded programs or software that would be good for many users and use a package manager like Synthetic & installoptionalpackage to get the rest.

This would be less of an issue with a full 4GB DVD if I could choose exactly which packages (programs) to install to disk drive. Installing 4GB of software onto my disk drive is not ideal since I may use only 1GB of that.

I was saying would could, not that we would be forced to do so.

BTW I don't disagree.

There is also the option of selling the DVD's for like $2.99 + postage for people with limited bandwidth. Basically it covers the cost of the DVD + a small donation to Haiku bounties.

What do I need to do to make a bootable DVD from this? Is it installable to HD?
 
 
0 # RE: RE: Senryukarl 2011-03-31 05:42
you'd need the boot floppy and catalog. you might find those in the root of the nightly Haiku ISOs, but am not sure using those would work with Senryu and it being an older revision.

To make a bootable ISO from a booted Senryu/Haiku environment, go to the root of the drive (drop and rename the boot floppy and catalog in there) and execute a command like this from the terminal i.e:

Quote:
mkisofs -R --max-iso9660-filenames -b senryu-boot-floppy.image -c boot.catalog -o /boot/home


It'll generate the ISO under /boot/home
