New .ISO image for tuxbox

ISO image of the OS that is based on the Linux kernel 2.4.4 system and includes the XFS file system which can be burned directly onto bootable CD.

Anybody wanting to use it must have the prototype hardware. Right now it doesn't do too much except boot to a shell prompt, but you can mount/unmount drives including XFS drives. Next thing is to get the mkfs.xfs to work under kernel 2.4.4 version so the system can be installed to a hard drive.

Game Developer guidlines are up

well, that pretty much says it all. there are some basic guidlines as to what you need, and what you should use if you want to develop for the tuxbox. Currently, they are on the General forum on http://www.tuxboxproject.com and i will add them to the project documentation here as well.

we need a new stk theme

we need a new theme for the stk other than the default one air has included. if you are interested and have openGL experience, download the latest version of the stk, and look check out the code for the default theme. before we start actually writing this though, we obviously need to come up with a design. lets try to discuss the design in the developer discussion here, so that everything stays in one place.

file release of the STK is out

well, that pretty much says it all. download it and run the test app, make sure you report bugs. remember, its just a test app, the final interface will look different, this is just the widget set we will use for it. have fun.

CVS is up for Tuxbox OS

well, that pretty much says it all. have fun updating it. there is a problem with the device files that causes cvs to hang, so for now they are archived under dev.tar, but perhaps we should replace it with a /dev/ directory that contains the MAKEDEV script.

switch to XFS imminent

okay, so i didnt really think out the filesystem choice (my mistake) and im strongly leaning towards switching from ReiserFS to XFS, because it should be more stable. i would like to do this soom, before the os is in wide use, but it may take a bit. if you have any opinions on the switch, drop a line in the os forum on the website. http://www.tuxboxproject.com/tforum/viewtopic.php?TopicID=53
