This page explains how to get and install WOSH on your system.
Note that before running WOSH for first time you need to configure the software and included bundles.
WOSH (official) website address is http://wosh.sourceforge.net.
Other mirrors and websites are:
WOSH may be installed anywhere, file-system structure is similar to POSIX system (because it's planned to have WOSH fully integrated into Linux).
The installation path should not contain any spaces.
Developers should access to latest source from the SourceForge repository (SubVersion):
alex@linbox:/home/alex/MyWoshFolder# svn co https://wosh.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/wosh wosh
The repository is mirrored (synchronized) on LaunchPad Bazaar.
You may also browse the repository online at http://wosh.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/wosh/
On Windows, I suggest to use TortoiseSVN (http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org).
Just create a new folder, right-click and
CheckOut the address https://wosh.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/wosh
To contribute the project you need to be registered on SourceForge (or LaunchPad) and join the WOSH project.
You are welcome to contact project administrators.
See page Building for information about compiling WOSH on your system.
WOSH is organized as a fairly standard project layout (similar to autotools):
Files Location Installed Location
WOSH may be installed anywhere, also in a network-shared folder.
You may notice similarities with Linux FS, in fact file system is designed to be (further) fully integrated in a generic POSIX system (as package).
Let's see sub-folders:
WOSH doesn't really need all of these folders, a minimal installation requires only binary and its configuration files.
Full distribution of WOSH comes with:
It is provided as
Open a shell and change your preferred folder, run
tar to uncompress data (will also create a subfolder):
alex@linbox:/home/alex/MyWoshFolder# tar -xfv WOSH-full-<UTC-DATE>.tar.gz
unzip the archive executing:
alex@linbox:/home/alex/MyWoshFolder# unzip WOSH-full-<UTC-DATE>.zip
WOSH is distributed as Microsoft Installer Package (msi) and source code is not included. Usually, Windows(32) distribution comes with Windows Mobile/CE (binary) archive (in /bin folder).
Windows Mobile release is distributed as ZIP archive, containing only binaries and required DLLs. It usually ships with Windows installer and Full distribution.
Installation on Windows Mobile/CE device from Windows 2000/XP:
On Linux platform you need to setup RNDIS driver and have device connected as a (virtual) host (TCP-IP enabled). You may find some information on wincesrv page.
