    I tried using the script listed on the boa download page for cvs in linux. It worked however it didnt get me the 0.4.0 release which I'd like to have since I have wxpython 2.5. Works in windows great, now if I can get it in linux!

    Thanks,

    Tom

     
    • The standard checkout will give you 0.3.1 which is the "head".

      0.4 is a branch so you need to check it out by specifying the branch see below.

      I used TortoiseCVS (www.tortoisecvs.org), which nicely integrates with the Windows explorer (filemanager)

      - Go to the folder where you want Boa to be, right click without selecting any file/folder.

      - Select CVS Checkout
      - Protocol = Password server
      - Server = cvs.sourceforge.net
      - Repository Folder = /cvsroot/boa-constructor
      - User Name = anonymous
      - Module = boa
      - On Revison tag
      - Branch or tag = Boa_0-4-0_pre

      See you

    • Hi Tom,

      I use this command line in Linux (Debian Sarge)...

      With cvs client installed...
      cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/boa-constructor  checkout -r Boa_0-4-0_pre boa

      This command will create a directory "boa" and download  Boa 0.4.0 in this directory. ;)

      Thanks,

      Luciano Pacheco

      Yeah that works Luciano. Thanks.

       
    • But as far as I know, 0.4.0 does not support wxPython 2.5 .... or does it?

      Cheers,

      Nerby

       
      • Boa 0.4.0-pre DOES support wxPython 2.5, have a look at
        http://wiki.wxpython.org/index.cgi/Boa040Upgrade

        to see what to look out for if you convert an app from 2.4 to 2.5.

        See you
