[Seaside] Problems setting up a GLASS/Jade

Well, you are not asking a "stupid newbie question" ..

I've been in the process of improving the documentation and setup 
environment for using GLASS, but it is a large task and I'm only partway 
through ... I've created a project up on github[1] where I am hoping to 
consolidate all of the documentation.

If you take a look at the project README[2], the installServer script is 
described, that downloads, installs and starts a stone ... in one script 
... included in the project is a set of scripts[3] for starting/stopping 
stones and a number of common operations. The scripts work on both the 
Mac and Linux ...

The GsDevKitHome development environment is based on tODE[4] and all of 
the documentation is written assuming that you are using tODE, but if 
you know what you are doing you can use GemTools or Jade.

By using the installServer script or the createTodeStone (once you've 
done an initial install) scripts to create stones, you will be 
guaranteed to get a GsDevKit/GLASS installation using the latest code base.

Once you've created a stone, follow the GsDevKitHome Seaside3.1 project 
installation instructions[5].

Normally, I would say feel free to ask me more questions and I could 
help you with any issues that you might run into, but I have a family 
health issue to take care of and I will not be generally available for 
at least a couple of weeks. I will be checking email when I can.

If you join the GLASS/GSDevKit mailing list[6], there should be folks in 
the community who can answer many of your questions.
