Both of these bug items are key for bootstrapping the Kawa system for some non-technical users I need, I MUST streamline this process, to make it as smooth as possible. At least I hope so and intend to devote a lot of time to this.

Please DO NOT delete any of my bug items (28100 and 28103) , as some of my long term projects are tightly connected with Scheme, especially with Kawa Scheme. Work is pending on these bugs.

There already is a Kawa package for Fedora:

sudo yum install kawa

There is an old (bit-rotted) "debian" directory in the Kawa sources, though could be used to build a .deb package, but I'm sure it needs work.

Some non-vague non-verbose ideas as to how to improve the bootstrap process is listed here:

sudo apt-get install kawa

Linux installer and installation processes as in http://www.climm.org/download.shtml.en

This is too vague to be helpful, I'm afraid.

I AM THINKING ON DEVELOPMENT OF a bootstrap link for Kawa site: see ../getting.html and ../getting-via-svn.html below.


ONE IDEA: java -jar KawaBootstrap.jar


CONCLUSION: It is likely that a lot of work is necessary to automatically download (attempting to bootstrap from any OS with Java installed), build, and install... I will spend time on other things. Just an idea.
