Hi All,

    I'm trying ot update the VMMaker image build scripts. I've got as far
as downloading the latest 6.x image and VM (much easier now; thanks to
everyone who has made the github pages easier to navigate!!).

How do I launch a trunk6 image with a script so that the system is running
headful and one can see it make progress?

I am launching with this on MacOS: and I get a headless blank screen that
appears to be 640x480, quite different to the normal startup showing the
configuration wizard I get f I launch without the arguments:

./Squeak.app/Contents/MacOS/Squeak trunk6-64.image
-- UpdateSqueakTrunkImage.st

where trunk6-64.image is a clone of e.g. Squeak6.0-22104-64bit.image

I've tried
    ./Squeak.app/Contents/MacOS/Squeak trunk6-64.image -- --filein
UpdateSqueakTrunkImage.st    ./Squeak.app/Contents/MacOS/Squeak
trunk6-64.image --filein UpdateSqueakTrunkImage.st
etc, but get the 640x480 grey screen image.
best, Eliot
