When issuing 'dpkg -i vnumlgui_0.7-1_i386.deb', you might get the message :
"cannot create dhelp file '/usr/share/doc/vnumlgui/html/.dhelp': no such file or directory".
To solve this problem, you can either :
- use the tar.gz source package
- issue 'mkdir -p /usr/share/doc/vnumlgui/html/' before running dpkg.
Please, note that the source package is the preferred method of installation and has 'uninstall' feature.
Binary packages are very experimental for now.
A new release is on track, containing several improvements. Check the release notes for more informations.
Here is release 0.4.
Please, see the release notes.
Also, note that there is a small glitch in the Makefile.You'll have to issue 'make -i' instead of 'make' commands.
This release has much more features than the previous one :
- Open implementd
- Simulation run from the GUI
- Almost full VNUML 1.5 language support (notable exception : <host> tag
and lots more.
This is the first 'release' of vnumlgui. It has been produced for testing purposes and is really *far* from being complete/tested/stable.
A lot of features are missing (like 'Open'...), a lot of dialogs are crappy, a lot of code is broken... but all in all, it should give you and idea on the direction of the project.
Use with caution, and avoid productions systems.
Development is rather fast paced. The first 'alpha' release will have the following features :
- handle application configuration
- map drawing (VMs and Nets, no 'Host')
- save config (not load, not run from GUI)
- configuration syntax checking
Alpha release should be available around June 24th.
As with all software planned releases, your mileage may vary... a lot :)
A ROADMAP file will soon be added to the CVS repository, and will detail future plans.
vnumlgui is a GUI for VNUML (see http://jungla.dit.upm.es/~vnuml/\). It will help you manage your network simulation without the pain of XML writing.
A basic knowledge of VNUML should be enough to create and launch simulations.
First releases are expected for this summer.
