Hi all,

I have been doing some testing in the previous live DVD acquiring screen shot.

I have not being able to make them available just yet due to machine trouble but I should be able to assist in checking the application list and updating the documentation of the latest OSGeo-live build.

Please let me know.

I'm looking for volunteers to help us determine which applications have been installed successfully on the latest OSGeo-Live build.

In particular, we need to keep track of which version has been installed successfully.
Who is available to try out applications on the latest VM? At some point, a representative from each application should run their application on the VM and confirm it works as expected. We will ask for more comprehensive testing after our UAT deadline of 21 Feb 2011.

I've written up the process to follow to collect status here:
Application Review

 *   Download the latest ISO or Virtual Machine from http://live.osgeo.org/dev/build
 *   Virtual Machines will need to be uncompressed with 7zip for windows<http://www.7-zip.org/> or 7zip for unix

7z x file.7z

For each application:

 *   Verify that you can select the application from the pull down menu.
 *   Find out what version of the application has been installed, and insert the version number into the "installed version" column of the Status spreadsheet<https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Al9zh8DjmU_RdGIzd0VLLTBpQVJuNVlHMlBWSDhKLXc&hl=en_GB#gid=8>
 *   Run the application and see if it works. If the Quickstart exists, try following the Quickstart instructions.

Note any errors that you find in the issue tracker using the following:

 *   OSGeo-Live issues are reported here: https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/report/10
 *   Set "Component" = "LiveDVD"
 *   For "Keywords", add the base release number, and the application id used in the Status Spreadsheet<https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Al9zh8DjmU_RdGIzd0VLLTBpQVJuNVlHMlBWSDhKLXc&hl=en_GB#gid=8>. Eg: "4.0, geoserver". Don't use "4.0rc1, geoserver".

I just started the Alpha2 build @r5513. I am well aware there are some

known outstanding issues but since the last build only made it as far as

Sahana we wanted to make sure that we get some error information for the

rest of the packages.

Look for build logs and possibly a downloadable vm in approx 12 hours

(Build is mostly running while I'm asleep, it doesn't actually take 12

hours, much closer to 2-3 hours).



Came out better this time, still some work to do of course. Logs an vmdk

file are up. We also now have a stable url to help you get the latest

dev build when they become available. It's a redirect for now but should

always get you to the right place.
