FluffOS 3.0 now works under CYGWIN
« on: November 12, 2013, 11:17:45 PM »
Hi,

Great news to report:  FluffOS 3.0alpha8 (current HEAD) is now working under CYGWIN32/64.  I would love you guys to try it by following instructions on  http://fluffos.github.io/build.html

NOTE: driver built this way still require all your mudlib file to have unix-line ending.  (some more work need to make it read CRLF without problem), but all functionality should be there, please give it a try and let me know how things goes.

attached proof!

Alpha8 is the current head/trunk

You can get it by cloning git repo.

FallenTree,

     Nice work, I grown dependent on Cygwin because I'm always on the move and cant really dualboot a work pc. I suppose I could vnc to home, but it gets a little shaky. Cygwin looks like DOS to some.

If one follows your link and instructions, they can pickup some command line skills as an added bonus.

If you can install and run cygwin, you could likely also install and run virtualbox.

You can easily fit several full VM"s and the application itself on a flash drive these days.
