StartBZFS for Mac

Post by jpenguin »

This is just a simple wrapper that I made to make StartBZFS run a little easier on MacOS X.

Sounds cool; too bad I don't use OS X, I can't try it out. Here's an idea: make it download mono and everything else if necessary when you run the script.

Not really worth the effort... they can download it. You would need to determine Power PC or Intel architecture, and then actually mount the image and install it. These are things that the person who is running the PC should be making the decision to do.

It works for me, but you can see my pub directory--

click on a file name, then click download.
AFAIK you need an Intel Mac

What exactly is in that DMG? I couldn't extract it with 7zip or another similar tool. (I don't have a Mac). Also, what license is that DMG released under?

DMG is the tar like package/image Mac uses, it includes checksum and so on.

Yeah.. doesn't work in Opera like it did last year.

Freezes, even off the image. Then it opens in Mono. Unless you can get it to work in the first window, nothing would be much better than a simple .sh file.

Yes...I know what a DMG is... But I wanted to know what the contents was. If it's some closed-source application, then it isn't allowed here. I know the StartBZFS part inside there is fine, but I have no way to know what else is in there.

All that in the DMG is a script in an StartBZFS.app bundle, it's PublicDomain. There is no source. To see how I made it,n Just (StartBZFS.app/Contents/document.wflow). I put StartBZFS.exe in 'StartBZFS.app/Contents/'. StartBZFS.exe can be replaced with a newer version without needing a new script, StartBZFS.exe just has to have the same name
