I think I've something to announce for you! You can now grab the latest
snapshot of SoaS-2 as a virtual machine... :)
In this tar.gz archive, you'll find a .vmdk and a .xml file. The .vmdk
file is nothing more than the disk image for VMware. You should be able
to import it easily, also in other applications supporting this file
type, such as VirtualBox (in which I tested it).
Please be aware that this image is still pre-alpha! It has quite a few
bugs and is certainly not as stable as the SoaS-2 .iso images.
For example, you'll need to select some information in the firstboot
assistant (which doesn't really look great, due to the use of
generic-logos). We're also using gdm instead of slim right now, for
being able to login. Finally, there were some issues with the
integration of the .xo activities. For now, you'll only see the ones
installed as .rpms there.
This image has been created by hand, but for the future I'm looking
forward to have them built at the same time as we build the .iso files.
As always, please come up with all the bugs you encounter or the
suggestions you may have! ;)
--Your SoaS Team
