Bongo Appliance Users – new Bongo Experimental Packages in the rPath repo

I have been working on getting the svn build of Bongo into the rPath repo for users to try.

I have now completed that and the newest build of bongo is available in the 0.40-devel repository.

Please be aware that this version has only been tested on rPath 2 and so cannot be used on rPath 1 systems.

Please also remember that the webmail UI and admin side of things is currently broken so if you are not comfy running command line tools with Bongo please don’t upgrade.

Let me know if you find any problems

Bongo Experimental Packages In Rpath Repo

Well,

I remember I said to myself this year I will get the svn build for Bongo into the bongo repo on rpath. It has taken a awhile but I now have the 0.4 svn version available in the repository. I will also be creating a few VM’s of the experimental new Rpath 2 version of the Bongo appliance.

WARNING!!!!!!

The Web UI is no longer working so if you use that do NOT update to this version.

Foresight Linux Product Definitions

I have been working on the product definitions for Foresight Linux repositories which will help the different versions have a common set of details.

I will try to blog as much as possible about this so that everyone knows where I am at.

I am currently setting up a test definition on my playground repo so that I can test my changes and clarify with everyone that they are what is needed.

I will be using the gnome-media group fromthe Foresight Linux repository to create the tests against. I have hit a small issue cloning the group into my repository but I hope to fix this asap.

I will post again when I have finished the group clone

Mypaint added

Mypaint has now been added to FL:2-devel.

from their website

MyPaint is a fast and easy painting application. It lets you focus on the art instead of the program.

It comes with a large brush collection including charcoal and ink to emulate natural painting. Other features are:

  • support for pressure sensitive graphic tablets
  • unlimited canvas (you never have to resize)
  • undo
  • fast
  • no layers (work in progress)
  • using pygtk with C extensions

If you want to look deeper, MyPaint is built around a highly configurable brush engine. This allows you to experiment with your own brushes and with not-quite-natural painting.

New video config tool for Foresight Linux

I am investigating video config (x config) for Foresight linux as the current config tool is a bit hit and miss.

I have been investigation who  does what and how but it seems quite difficult to get any information about this stuff from the different distributions and also what works and what does not.

I would appreciate any comments on the above.

New Laptop

I have eventually been able to get a 64bit laptop.

Which means I will be able to package for Foresight Linux, Rpath and the Bongo Project again.

I feel I have been neglecting all my projects somewhat, hopefully when it arrives I will be able to package some great apps.
