I’m considering building a new VMware appliance of the latest Pyffle
code that is running hq.pyffle.com.
However it would be quite an effort to do, so I’m looking to gauge
interest? How many of you would like to run Pyffle on your own
systems as a VM?
Good news everyone – Turnkey Pyffle v0.21 (due out July-ish) will have a curses-based installation wizard to guide you through those annoying installation steps that might have kept some of you from installing it.
Here’s a video of the demo in action
(if you don’t / can’t use Flash, here’s the 24 MB original QuickTime .MOV):
It even includes a menu and stuff:
This gallery contains 4 photos.
Not sure whether to be proud of the stuff I’ve built or ashamed of how far from my original idea of a Waffle clone I’ve arrived at:
Pyffle v0.2 announced!
Guys, I’ve just got a release of Pyffle v0.2 (OK the version numbers are
arbitrary and don’t show up everywhere in the code etc) as a
VMware appliance as well as an OVA for you VirtualBox users..
download it, boot it up and follow the (relatively) simple instructions
on the web page (which will be updated once the files are up there*).
Highlights of this version:
Preconfigured Taylor UUCP setup ready to connect to UUHECNET.
OVA version for VirtualBox users.
* Due to my insanely slow connection here in Lebanon, it might be up to
48 hours before the new files show up on the site. Will keep you posted
as and when this is done.
