Come on, let's build NethServer 7 all together!


(Alessio Fattorini) #1

It’s time to take the gloves off, folks!!
How many times you said here in community:

  • I wanna help
  • I wanna work on NethServer 7
  • I wanna make rpms!
  • I wanna be a NethServer developer!

Now, it’s YOUR time. It’s time to help in practice the NethServer project!
Let’s start following this HowTo

Continuing the discussion from NethServer v7-alpha2:

I will see if I can make an NS7 server from a CentOS7 server. Scraping some spare time together to do it tho… :wink:

(Jose "Martin" Abeleira. AKA Marto) #3

i wanna help.


Okay, let’s go :grinning:

(Vhinz Sanchez) #5

Not a coder here, still heavily reliant on GUI (Windows admin here) but I wanted to help…time permitting :smile:

BTW, no vm now for me for the meantime.

(Alessio Fattorini) #6

Everybody can help, be a coder is not necessary.
Just follow the howto and report issues, pasting the output

:relaxed: :+1:

I’d also like to form a group of volunteers, the amazing Seven Team

@medworthy, @dz00te, @fasttech, @GG_jr, @Adam @Nas @Ctek @alexcsilva @jgjimenezs @hcaz @Shadowfire @ironsky @buddha @Linux4All @Crazyusb @AbsyntH @JOduMonT @WillZen and other guys who have already replied, would you take part in it?


Aren’t I already in? lol!

(Gabriel GHEORGHIU) #10

Aren’t WE ALL already in? :wink:

Make a beta tester team without number… Or put every body in the existing tester team

(Stefan) #13

Sorry, I can’t test at the moment. No time and no hard ware. :cry:

(Rob Bosch) #14

Time is always an issue, but hardware? Just go virtual with Virtualbox or something similar. I do that with my laptop all the time.

(Alessio Fattorini) #15

Virtualbox is enough! :slight_smile: don’t worry

(Filippo Carletti) #16

Work is progressing nicely thanks to all contributors.
I’m publishing packages even if they still have problems.
With the help of original author @edoardo_spadoni, I made Disk Usage work on 7 (and while at it, I modified it to show actual disk usage instead of apparent size, as requested by @Jim).

You can follow packages release here:;O=D

I’m leaving for a week on the mountains, I wish you an happy new year.

(Artem Fedai) #17

@filippo_carletti what mountain do you prefer ? Post fotos and so on :smile:

(Alessio Fattorini) #18

:+1: Good news!

Guys, are you in the loop? Would you like something to play with? It’s time to take the gloves off!

I usually go hiking, I can’t climb. :slight_smile: But I can ski.

It seems that some guys are working really hard here! Check this link

and also the page below, many packages re-builded, it looks like a enormous amount of work :smile:

I’m just a bit sad because just 4 people have contributed, @giacomo @davidep @filippo_carletti and @dz00te :cry: :disappointed_relieved:

Why didn’t it work out ? Was the procedure too complex or boring? Please let me know, I’m very curious.
