I've built my own Squeak Source server some weeks ago and of course I 
could make this image available... BUT it's easy to build your own and a 
good exercise to improve your skills. I hope my small Howto will work 
and help...

1. download the squeak-dev-62 image from damien cassou's web site:

2) run this image and install DynamicBindings via SqueakMap

3) install FFI (needed for graphViz later). I've used the Script Manager 
at "Prepared Packages" to load it

4) Open a Monticello browser and add http://www.squeaksource.com/ss as a 
repository (Squeak Source Repository)

5) Open that repository and install the following packages in exact the 
shown order step by step. At some packages you will be asked for 
user/password data

TinyWiki-lr.10.mcz  (*take care, it's not the newest package*)

6) configure your own Squeak Source Server with changing the class 
methods in SSRepository

a) change SSRepository>>defaultRepository when you don't want Lukas as 
your super user ;-). The following code only creates one super user. You 
can create everything else later TTW.

    | yourInitials  |
    yourInitials  := (SSMember initials: 'yourInitials') fullname: 'Your 
full name';
                 superuser: true;
                 password: 'yourPassword';
    ^ SSRepository new title: 'SqueakSource for your Name';
         addMember: yourInitials 

b) change the method name of the class method initialize to a name you 
like for doing your own initialization. You need the following 
statements enabled:

    "-- initialize default repository --"
    Current := self defaultRepository.
    RootUrl := self defaultRootUrl.
    Storage := self defaultStorage.
    "-- save the current repository --"
    self storage saveRepository: self current.
    "-- load the last repository --"
    "Current := self storage loadRepository."
    "-- clear seaside caches --"
    WARegistry clearAllHandlers.
    Smalltalk garbageCollect

7) Open a workspace and "doit"

SSRepository initializeTMP.
SSKom startOn: 8888.

8) save the image

That's it! You should be able to browse http://localhost:8888 (or 
http://your-ip:8888). Login with the user/pw you created in your method.

9) Individual configurations (can all be done when you are logged in as 
super user)

a) change your e-maill address when you are logged in in "Edit Account"
b) change smtp server and admin mail in "Edit Settings"
c) if you haven't a well configured DNS environment running change the 
entry for "Root URL" (also in "Edit Settings) to 
http://your-ip-or-valid-dns-enabled-name:8888 (otherwise you will not 
download your source).

10) I'm sure I've forgot something but perhaps you will find it out :-). 
E.g. how to run the whole stuff on a different port...

If this is too complicated for you (hm, at least you've asked in the 
beginners group. But running your own Squeak Source server isn't a 
beginners topic IMHO), I can sent you an image.

Hope this helps,
Franz Josef Konrad
