So, Virtuam it’s finally a real app! Well… not really, but it works and does almost what it needs to do:
✔ Create and run a virtual machine
≠ Offer options for customize it
✘ Be able to install an OS ( 😛 )
So, this is the last day of the 1st week… not bad! 🙂
Also, I would like to show you what I’ve done since my last post. New features added from commit 3 to commit 7 in Virtuam’s trunk are:
- It detects your HD and RAM’s size, and selects a default option for them.
- Now window closes after pressing the “Apply” button! 😀
- Fixed another small bugs, done small improvements in the source code.
Yep… I’ve done “lots” of things! It may seem a few features… but I had to partially rewrite my app! Now I “just” need to do five things for finally release the 0.1 version, which are:
- Setting up the combo boxes and its parameters.
- To offer a CD boot option for the first boot (if, for example, the installation CD is an ISO file) (maybe for the 0.2 release… 😛 )
- To make a settings file (and, obviously, the ~/.virtuam folder)
- A .desktop file for the Unity Dash and the GNOME main menu.
- To learn how to package a Python app (dh_make is too complex… 😦 )
As most of things listed before can be done easily, I think that the 1st packaged release will be available (after a test with a Lubuntu VM) for download at Launchpad and in this blog. So, stay tuned! 🙂
P. S.: If you have Bazaar installed, you can install Virtuam with this command:
bzr branch lp:virtuam/trunk [folder that you want]
Hope you enjoy it! 😀
