Slash 0.4 Finally Reconstructed Inside VMware Client OS
Dave Aiello wrote, "After only 10 weeks, I finally got Slash 0.4 (CTDATA's customized Slash distribution) running inside a VMware virtual machine. This was much more difficult than I expected, although the actual installation of Slash on the VMware client OS only took about three and a half days."
"Of course, life would have been infinitely easier had I sized the laptop hard drive correctly. I thought I could get away with using a 12 gigabyte hard drive. I thought it would be easy to upgrade to a larger hard drive. As you know from some previous stories that I've posted, I thought wrong."
Dave Aiello continued:
Nevertheless, it looks like we are going to start making progress again. It's about time.
I haven't done a clean installation of Slash 0.4 in about 3 1/2 months, and this installation cycle exposed the deficiencies of the documentation I did at that point. We absolutely need to document our installation process better.
For the record, this is a major milestone in a plan that was devised 10 1/2 months ago. I feel like we ought to be able to celebrate at this point. But, we've got a backlog of Slash modifications and Web Site configuration changes that need to be made. So, I ought to get back to work....
