I really like the concept of this project - thanks for all of the hard work.
I spent some time with XPCLI a few weeks ago and sadly couldn't get anything working. After noticing a few subtle (note the heavy use of irony) references to XPCLI by Wonko the Sane I've been enticed back here for another try. These subtle references include -
Anyway, it seems like my previous attempts (and initial (re)attempts) were hindered by using a cr@p disk image when testing in QEMU. That will teach me for applying my lazy philosophy of "here's one I made earlier" . I'll investigate the disk image later - it was working when used for other stuff (although I suspect this is due more to my usage with grub4dos mapping and grub4dos's ability to directly chainload ntldr/bootmgr).
Anyway, I've dumped QEMU and booted from a physical hard disk instead. It's working - yippee! I'm getting there, but still have some work to do. I'll play around for a week or so and then report back with my observations/questions.
As you appear to have become the bearer of the torch for this project, I was wondering if you could answer a few questions -
- What progress been made?
- What are the goals of this project?
- What needs to be done to move this project forward?
- What can I do to help (bearing in mind my limited abilities - particular when working with such a small (?limited) base)?
