CT on DragonFly 5.8.0

Contents[Hide]

We test Lab CodeTyphon 7.10 on DragonFly 5.8.0

DragonFly belongs to the same class of operating systems as other BSD-derived systems and Linux.
It is based on the same UNIX ideals and APIs and shares ancestor code with other BSD operating systems.
DragonFly provides an opportunity for the BSD base to grow in an entirely different direction from the one taken in the FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD series.
DragonFly includes many useful features that differentiate it from other operating systems in the same class.
The most prominent one is HAMMER, our modern high performance filesystem with built-in mirroring and historic access functionality.
Virtual kernels provide the ability to run a full-blown kernel as a user process for the purpose of managing resources or for accelerated kernel development and debugging.

DragonFly BSD is one of our LAB Reference OSes

More for DragonFly BSD here

 

System: Entry level PC with 1 CPU (4-Cores) / 8 Gbyte RAM / 120 Gbytes Hard Disk / 1680x1050 pixels Monitor
OS : DragonFly version 5.8.0 64 bits  (dfly-x86_64-5.8.0_REL.iso)

 

 

1. OS things and stuff..

DragonFly BSD installation give you only a minimum bootable OS.

Install the system.


Logging as "installation user"

a) Install "bash", "zip", "unzip", "nano", "sudo" and "xorg"

su

pkg install -y bash zip unzip nano sudo xorg

b) At this test we install "MATE" and "xfce4" Desktops

pkg install -y mate mate-desktop mate-common
pkg install -y xfce xfce4-desktop
pkg install -y slim slim-themes

c) Setup /etc/rc.conf

nano /etc/rc.conf

and add:

moused_enable="YES"
hald_enable="YES"
dbus_enable="YES
slim_enable="YES"

D) Add installation user to group "wheel"

pw groupmod wheel -m username

exit

e) As installation user

nano ~/.xinitrc

Add to installation user xinitrc, the line

exec mate-session

 

Reboot and logging as installation user...

 

 

 

2. Preparation-Give "sudo" root privileges

Open a terminal and exec

su
nano /usr/local/etc/sudoers

 

add at the end of /usr/local/etc/sudoers 1 line

username ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL

Ctl-X to exit and Y to save

 

 

3. Download-Unzip-Install

Download CodeTyphonIns.zip and unzip to your home directory

 

Open a terminal, and go to new CodeTyphonIns directory

cd CodeTyphonIns

Start CodeTyphon Installation with command

sh ./install.sh

Give zero "0" to Install CodeTyphon

 

 

 

4. Setup and Build (GTK2)

After CT install you can start CTCenter or to continue with the open terminal

We don't change GTK2 Platform, MATE desktop based on GTK2.

It's the first installation of CodeTyphon on this PC, so we install "system libraries" select "0".

 

Select "8" to build all...

 

 

Finally

 

CTCenter and Typhon64 for GTK2

 

 

 

5. Libraries tests (GTK2)

Typhon IDE on DragonFly BSD has now about 146 packages.

We test some of about 1900 CodeOcean samples...
