#53 properly register coLinux as a service


if coLinux is fully registered as a service, it can be easily managed from the windows control panel, without necessarily requiring console commands to be executed manually by the user

    this might actually be a good idea?

    colinux already runs just fine as a service, at least it did the last time I checked (before I moved to Vista x64). There are a ton of different programs to register services, I always used cygwin cygrunsrv to do it but others like srvany from Microsoft should work too.

    still installing it by default as a service that can be managed from the control panel would be pretty intuitive

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    having this would definitively improve the level of integration for colinux under Windows

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    this is obsolete, you can easily register it manually from the console by using --install-service

    possibly, the OP was referring to the way coLinux is by default installed?
    In other words, was this supposed to be about the INSTALLER offering a service-option?

    This is not possible from installer. The installer has no information about your configuration (cobdX Blockdvices, ethX network devices).

    You need first create a runable config file and than you can use this config file to create a service.

    I think, it might be an idea to provide a way to configure coLinux dynamically using some form of wizard that is provided during the installation itself, which could be based on a standard template to allow customization without resorting to the shell
