Ok, the next image is ready. This image is now running under Debian 5 and when asked for a user you may enter the user name “smalltalk” with password “smalltalk”.
The following Smalltalks are installed:
* Smalltalk/X 5-4-6 (Windows)
* Smalltalk/X 5-4-6 (Linux)
* VASmalltalk 8.01 (Linux)
* VASmalltalk 8.01 (Windows)
* ObjectStudio 8.1 (Windows) - to show the problems with menus
* VisualWorks 7.7 (Linux)
* VisualWorks 7.7 (Windows) - to show the problems with menus
* Pharo (Linux) RC2
On the Desktop you find icons to start each Smalltalk. Before using VASmalltalk 8.01 you must start the emsrv server. The Linux and Windows version of VASmalltalk are working against the same emsrv server.
You may download the VirtualBox Appliance (http://www.schrievkrom.de/extfiles/Smalltalk-Appliance-0110.zip
) and distribute it to other sites - my feed is not a very good one and the size of this package is about 2.5 GB.
Please remember, that all Smalltalk are not supported under Wine - but most of them work pretty well there.
The appliance is configured for a german keyboard. You may change this from the desktop via the command “sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-data”.
Have fun …
