AltME: Syllable

And as the Enlightenment article says, the widget set hasn't been ported to Syllable Desktop yet

Kaj
I'm now logged in on Syllable Server, with X11 built on top of it
We've done that for two years now, but that was on our in-house Syllable Workstation, Syllable Server with GoboLinux transplanted on top of it. Now I'm running on pure Syllable Server, with X built from source
That cleans up a lot of problems with the GoboLinux integration, so it is becoming production ready
On the other hand, I've just spent the equivalent of a full work week just to get the legacy fonts in X that R2/View needs

Depends on how much time it took you to do it.
Kaj
The equivalent of a full work week
That means three days for me

Kaj
I've got the Enlightenment stack running on X now, up to the widget set
That was a lot easier than View. It's currently a very minimal X configuration
Kaj
I've got GTK 2 built from source running on X now, but GTK 3 bombs out

Kaj
Now I've got Qt running on X. That didn't work in the GoboLinux mix
I already had Qt running before in embedded mode on the Linux framebuffer

I've set up a new wiki for Syllable, running on Fossil:

For those who have been clamouring for a Syllable installation video in the past, we finally made one, on our SylCon summer conference yesterday:

Kaj, do you happen to have a VMware image for version 0.6.7? I only saw 0.6.6 posted.
btw, is the Enlightenment engine part of the latest binaries now?
Kaj
No, we haven't had time to make emulator images for 0.6.7 yet. The Enlightenment port isn't published in binary yet, but you could compile it with the Syllable build system

Are there some known graphics problems running under VMware? I had the browser showing Google and wikipedia for a while, but then it wouldn't update itself anymore. I also couldn't quit the browser. I have the hardware compatibility set to 6 as per instructions.
