Well, that "--filein" is the mechanism of "DoItFirst" and not the good-old start-up *.st script. DoItFirst is triggered way too early for a typical script. Just do it as always then? "./vm my.image startup.st" would be my best guess.

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
