Hi Timeka!    Dreamgrid has Diva Wifi in it, with customizable Black and
White themes now. It's not Linux-ey, but Dreamgrid does run on all
Windows boxes including 7, 8, and 10 and all server products.  It just
uses RAM and cores and some disk space,  and not much else.   Dreamgrid
is Dot Net 'wrapper'  that runs tests on the network and then edits the 
INI files. One click of Start then launches stock Mysql, Robust and
Opensim.

If you need a higher level overview than all this detail, the OSCC2018
presentation is at https://www.outworldz.com/secondlife/OSCC/ and a 20
minute Youtube video of me yacking is at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrDxpzI7Gsk

Dreamgrid is 100% stock Opensim internally.  You could just extract it
on any Windows box and run Opensim/bin/opensim.exe as-is.   If so, you
would need to do a few edits to INi files. Dreamgrid is designed to
automated this and make it very easy to do. Its overall still very
complex as there is a lot of stuff there, but you can still start a new
grid in two clicks.

You can download the zip file, or run the simple installer, then edit
the usual INI files by hand.  Or run Dreamgrid once to make a working
config, alter it the way you like, and if you still want to roll your
own, run it from a DOS prompt after that. There is a DOS command
included (startmanually.bat) to launch Mysql (and a batch file to run it
as a service if that's what you prefer) , and another batch file to
start robust. Just type 'go regionname' and it will run without
Dreamgrid ever being used.  I even include batch files to do these tasks
individually, and a sample and simple batch file to do them all at once.

Dreamgrid makes it a lot easier to get up quickly, as it picks defaults
that always work.  If ports are open and loopback works, it will be on
the hypergrid, too.  It sets up Diva, Robust, all the config files for
Opensim, builds regions, and sets up tons of the modules like Gloebits,
Vivox, Birds, Tides, Datasnapshot, Diva, AutoRestart, and many others.
Dreamgrid does over 250 edits on startup, and then does about 300 more
for each region.   No need to mess with INI files, ever!

Source codes:  My code is AGPL, so it's open source.  All the code
(including Opensim) is compiled by me and is digitally signed by
Outworldz, LLC so it is safe to download and run.  Dreamgrid downloads
always include the source code for Opensim, which is also easily
upgraded by copying a stock Opensim zip file over it and running
prebuild and compile.bat, assuming you want to add modules or develop C#
code or tweak Opensim.  You can even compile it elsewhere and copy
opensim/bin over my code. and it should work.  Nothing gets stepped on. 
The source for both DG and Opensim is at github.com/Outworldz.   You can
clone that and compile it the app with Visual Studio 2015 or 2017 and it
will run everything, including a database and Opensim immediately.

If you still want to roll your own from my base, there are some minor
differences in INI settings you need to be aware of.   It's still all
core Opensim.

The region folders are set up to allow one Opensim.exe run all DOS
instances.
bin\Openim.ini is now bin\Opensim.proto. This gets copied into region
folder as Opensim.ini so each DOS Box can have different settings, such
as UBODE versus Bullet.
bin\config-include\OSSLEnable.ini is now
bin\config-include\OSSLEnableDG.ini, so stock Opensim does not overwrite it.

Ethan Gardener
Wow!  Very clear concise explanation, Fred; it answers almost all the questions I was about to ask! :)

Is this a good list to keep asking about Dreamgrid, or does it have its own list?
