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!
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
I use this command line in Linux (Debian Sarge)...
With cvs client installed...
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/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. ;)
Yeah that works Luciano. Thanks.
But as far as I know, 0.4.0 does not support wxPython 2.5 .... or does it?
Boa 0.4.0-pre DOES support wxPython 2.5, have a look at
to see what to look out for if you convert an app from 2.4 to 2.5.
