Ok, I've added the updates to the restarted 3.9alpha update stream.
(It even puts up a warning if you're trying to update from the old
3.9alpha stream... I remembered that doing a "self notify: 'please
close this window'" is a not-too-bad way to bail out of the current UI
However, there's a problem with the MCConfiguration install. It
generally works and gets most of the way through it, but it hits an
error trying to install the SMBase-dew.64 package. Looking at the
debugger, it looks like it's trying to install an .mcd diff file for
this. Ah, maybe the base version has to be in the same repository?
(which would be SMBase-gk.63)
Anyway, anyone can try to do the updates if you want to see the error.
The big MCConfig install of all the packages actually doesn't take as
terribly long as I thought, maybe 5-10 minutes. (It probably won't be
too hard on the server if just a few people on this list try it.)
Here's all you need to do:
- start with a fresh 3.8-6665-basic image (save a copy)
- 'SystemVersion setVersion' to 'Squeak3.9alpha'
- load updates
I'm going to pack it in for the day, but hopefully this won't take too
long to fix tomorrow. Then I can post a working image with the updates
p.s. these are the updates:
