QBinux pre-alpha-release

Post by Seb McClouth » Sat Dec 22, 2007 4:19 pm

Hello all,

I've been doing a lot of work on QBinux, and I'm looking for new testers.

I have two pre-alpha release tester and looking for a couple to do the alpha-release test.

Every alpha-tester is automatically a beta-tester and I need also beta-testers.

Volunteers can mail me at mcclouth.software@gmail.com

Update: I've just solved the first bug I was experiencing.
This means that Sunday, will be the first full-Alpha release, and I expect the beta-release to be functioning between Christmas and New Year.
If the beta-release is working according to plan, I will release the new version in the New Year.

Currently the homepage of McClouth Software is under construction and is undergoing some changes. I'm expecting to have the work done on that as well in the New Year, say before the end of the first week of January.

Do we need a Linux to test? I've got a Dell computer.
For any grievances posted above, I blame whoever is in charge . . .

I've started to work on the beta-version, but I'm also waiting on the reviews from the pre-alpha and alpha-testers. If you would like to become a betatester, send me an e-mail, and I'll add ya to the list.

Would be neat to try it out with some good time but no clue is there actually point to do so with dosbox.

It can be used in XP, i've tried it. The code which runs is now doesn't affect anything important yet. If does, i'll have to advice every to move back to DOS and help me creating a full system...

Just kidding.

How would we test it? Is it a compiler?

True, and not completly.
There's a lot of code used in QBinux which is the same as in Linux. Okay when it comes to booting and run standalone as an OS, it's (for now still) a fake OS, or as I prefere to call it, a Shell.

On how to test it? You get the compiled version and you can do your thing on the prompt, trying commands, and afterwards, giving me a review, and feedback.
