If you want to prepare a VMMaker Trunk image, you would use a regular Trunk image, not a release image. I think. So, why aren't you using a recent 6.1alpha image?
-> http://files.squeak.org/6.1alpha/Squeak6.1alpha-22134-64bit/

Hi All,

    ok, this is a bit of a disaster.  The invocation is now:

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

Why was it changed?

And the result:

1. the update fails with a merge conflict in the release builder between:
    SystemVersion newVersion: 'Squeak6.0'
    SystemVersion newVersion: 'Squeak6.1alpha'

2. a Note that says 'Cannot start a second instance of Squeak
with the image "UpdateSqueakTrunkImage.st"
because the VM is configured as singleton application.' becauser somewhere something is generating a DropFileEvent for the UpdateSqueakTrunkImage.st file.  The system shouldn't be both executing the script argument and generating a drop file event for it.

The effective result is that I can't automate building a VMMaker image as I was once able to. :-(

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
