what kind of machine are you using?
Because it requires VirtualBox which requires 64 bit virtualization to be supported by the hardware.
It’s an Aspire 5734Z-4836. Old laptop I’m borrowing at the moment.
wow, amazing you got it working on that
ok, i rewrote the “portability” section to frame WSL1 as an option (with the additional configuration) and made virtualisation/WSL/dual-boot options clearer @pythagorean
thanks for the feedback!
as the docs are taking way more effort than i expected to write up (like everything ) i’m doing a bit of a triage for this initial PR merge
at the moment that looks like:
- productive (done)
- portable (done)
- predictable (done)
- install (done)
- configure (30%)
- binaries (0%)
- bash scripts (0%)
- release management (0%)
- the nix shell
- nixos cheatsheet
- zome development
- UI development
- docs kit
- IDE support
- Support & debug
this is entirely non-scientific purely based on where i’m personally getting asked the most questions and seeing confusion/frustration
it would be awesome if others could help carry the “defer” section after the initial PR is merged
i’m also expecting to flesh things out ad-hoc based on forum discussions, but i’m wanting to focus efforts on Reproduceable network/core testing for concurrent/looping stuff ASAP
BTW everything in this forum topic is in the first PR so thanks all
Just a general idea, maybe we could have a link in the docs that bounces people to this forum if they have questions about a particular section
A kind of two-way binding would be interesting if the docs listed “Relevant forum topics” within the docs pages, but that’s asking for a lot I think
@marcus there are sections right at the bottom of the structure that i deferred for “support and debug” and “contribute” which seem like the perfect place to put forum links if we have them
Could the link in the docs auto-tag the user’s forum question? @dhtnetwork
i don’t know what that means >.< @marcus
what’s an auto-tag?
i’m looking for an “embed” option or similar and not seeing anything…
I mean more like could we add parameters to the Discourse forum URL so that their question is automatically categorised?
dunno, let’s see what @dhtnetwork says
@thedavidmeister: Is this info in the readme or docs dir? I failed to find it with a quick scan of both, but then located it here after some searching.
Yes, auto tags would be helpful. I am not sure if auto tag has been implemented in the feature roadmap. I’ll look into it.
@jmday well it’s in a WIP branch… there will be instructions by the time i finish the branch
ok, please review/feedback on first pass of the holonix docs
especially if there is critical information missing, so i can update it
ignore the theme, @dhtnetwork is sorting me out with something on brand
I would recommend merging the three-p’s into a single “approach”, “theory”, or “assumptions” section. They all seem like logically part of the same thing which is explaining the why and how of Holonix. Having them take up the top three items of menu real-estate seems like a bit too much.
@zippy aight, i got some other feedback coming in through other channels, i’ll give it a few days to aggregate then i’ll do another sweep
makes sense i’ll combine those three into a single page
