      SimplyGNUstep is now Debian based.

      Until we have our own install disc what you do is install a Debian "Sarge" distro.
      You can (soon) get that disc image at http://gluck.debian.org/cdimage/testing/netinst/
      The server is down right now though.

      When the install is done, you need to manually set up the repository source to DL the packages.

      I will gladly help you when you get to that point.

      See http://www.google.com/url?sa=U&start=1&q=http://www.osnews.com/story.php%3Fnews_id%3D4818&e=7415 for more info

      Hi,
      I finally got the debian sarge up and running with windowmaker. (I am not a linux guru but this sarge netinstall is a nightmare-terribly bad installer).
      I also did the apt-get install sgstep-meta-user and developer commands.
      And what's next? Sorry to trouble you but either I did something wrong or the install process because all of the stuff are now in the / directory instead of under /usr/.. something.
      Also the openapp command won't work. When I try to run an app from it's dir it would not run and would complain about not finding fonts and then they exit.

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks

        First of all, it installs all the GNUstep stuff in /, that is ok.  All the apps should be in /Applications.

        Also, the install scripts should have made it so that /System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh is executed when you login.  It should have added this to /etc/profile.

        That GNUstep.sh script must be run before GNUstep can be used.  If you need to, you can run it your self by executing "source /System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh".

        After that openapp should work.  Try "openapp GWorkspace.app"

        hope that helps, feel free to ask more questions if you need to!

      I just updated my sources.list file and did an apt-get update. I'm getting 404 errors for both the binary and source package lists. Is there an alternate site?

      Thanks.
