I don't remember if I had any problems loading Magritte, but there's small
issue with Pier in VW.
BTW, the order was: Seaside, then Magritte, then Pier (if I remember
So, the problem: there's reference to *SeasideInstallationOptions* in
class>>initialize*. But there's no *SeasideInstallationOptions* in VW port
of Seaside (anymore?).
Actually the correspoding error during installation can be just ignored
(using "Jump To Caret" option in debugger for example) followed by "manual"
registration of Pier thereafter (e.g. using *
self registerAsApplication: 'pier' kernel: (PRKernel named: 'Pier')
for default values).
Anyway, it would be nice to have recent versions of Pier in VW (the one in
Cincom Public Repository is more than a year old)... :)
