#426 fixed Install VirtualBox helper application live-demo@… camerons
Description

The FOSS4G GISVM seems to work quite well in Sun's Open Source version of Virtual Box, which you can apt-get install from Ubuntu.

To make it work better, like getting the mouse to move freely from the virtual box to your desktop, and to get the display to expand greater than 800x600, it seems you can install virtual box helper applications. See the comment trail on this blog for details:

We need to get this into an install script.

#429 wontfix Create a rsync system to sync local VMs with a master live-demo@… camerons
Description

As we have a number of people collaborating in the building of the Virtual Machine, and as Virtual Machines are very large and slow and costly to download, we need a way that people can synchronise with the latest image without download 3 meg of data.

I propose that we set up the following:

  • Mount the GISVM somewhere, probably on download.osgeo.org. (Ricardo has some other ideas for hosting locations which I can't put my finger on as I type this).
  • Set up a configured rsync client inside GISVM image, probably using Unison, This will provide read only access to the master Virtual Machine. This will allow everyone to sync their local images with the latest.
  • Set up the master GISVM image with read only access for most people, maybe through an anonymous password or similar.
  • Set up write access to the GISVM image to the core GISVM team, probably only one or 2 people, who will be responsible for running people's scripts, and then uploaded the changed image back onto the master image.
  • Periodically, this master image will be copied into a specific release with a version number.
#430 fixed Create documentation for the LiveDVD live-demo@… camerons
Description

User level documentation needs to be added for each application.

I'm looking for direction as to what this documentation should look like, and how it should be written.

At the moment, I think it should be available via a HTML page.

To start with, I've copied the documentation from the 2008 Live DVD into https://svn.osgeo.org/osgeo/livedvd/gisvm/trunk/doc/ arramagong.css banner.bmp index.html jquery.js

Docs are updated using https://svn.osgeo.org/osgeo/livedvd/gisvm/trunk/bin/install_main_docs.sh
