Today was another successful testing phase.
I had a lot of issues with Docker. It initially worked. Then didn’t. The Windows 10 machine I have has 4GB RAM and 16 of Opteron which Docker doesn’t care it says 4GB RAM means it won’t start up. So Docker was out. VirtualBox was no better. The Debian installation on VirtualBox should’ve been the same as parallels, but it wasn’t. I don’t know if it was the i386 architecture or what, but it did not work. It “mosta-installed.”
I turned to WSL Ubuntu. It did work. As a matter of fact after only a few additional npm install commands for packages that were notifying me weren’t installed on startup it is running just fine.
I issued many commands to the software and was able to view it in the Vufine display. I cannot tell you how ecstatic I was after all of these years to have finally put something together from all of the pieces I’ve worked on.
As of this moment, I’m going to leave my four installations alone (WSL Ubuntu, VirtualBox i386, Debian 9, and Docker). I will keep these as separate installs even though they are mostly the same and that’s so while I’m testing I don’t have to figure out what to do. I will have to make a note to go back and test installations with new environments and ensure that they work 100% since I don’t know that I have all of my notes for WSL Ubuntu written down entirely.
