I’ve been looking for a source control solution for some time. I used to use QVCS, but it costs money and you have to get the Enterprise version to get client/ server. At this point I have three, or four, development systems and they include both Windows and Linux.
I considered Bazaar, but after a couple of days I came up with more questions than I had answers. My reasons for not using Bazaar are here.
While there were a few glitches I was able to get going with Surround SCM in a single day. Surround SCM is easy to use, and supports client / server across Windows, Mac and Linux.
I need a personal source control system for my development.
As a big believer in Open Source solutions I took a careful look at Bazaar. But alas, I could not get started with Bazaar.
Update: My conclusions were wrong. The sync workaround doesn’t work. See end.
I’m using Firefox Sync on 3 systems. Recently I added some bookmarks on one of the systems that were not propagated to the other systems. At first I checked FireFox support and there is a long list of things to check. After checking a few things, I decided to do a test rather than going through the rest of the checks on that page. I did disable the plugins – long lists of Java Consoles of various versions – and that made no difference. What I found out when I did a test was that some changes are propagated and others are not propagated. Here is the test that I performed and here are pictures of the results.
These are the things I want to do with Bazaar. I have a network of Win Vista, Win 7 and Ubuntu systems. Click on any picture for a larger view.
1 – Create a project with collocated repository.
Must do this manually due to the bug in creating collocated repositories but it seems to work by using the All command dialog and colo-init.
Update: This is a known bug. The work around is to use the manual method of doing the commands as follows:
All Commands Dialog
Note that I tried the command before deleting the .brz folder. Once I deleted it, it worked fine. The fix is known and will be available in the next release.

If your Jade Dynasty screen looks like this, or if any other MMO you are playing fails to find a server or update does not work, you might want to check this.
Update Screen Failed
If you see this, then you can play the game, as long as you don’t need an update. But the update process clearly won’t work. Continue Reading
