[TYPO3-core] How to get started with FAL from incubator....

Hey tolleiv,

I do this:

 * a normal 4.6.4 blank package installation
 * Cloned git://git.typo3.org/TYPO3v4/Incubator.git
 * checked out the remotes/origin/plain-fileabstraction branch into a
local one
 * changed t3lib typo3 and index.php to come from the new sources
 * installed EXT:file (not sure if all of them are needed?), soon
EXT:file will not be needed at all anymore
 * Do a Compare Database / Update Tables in the install tool
 * Create a File Storage on PID=0 through the list module (set it to
fileadmin/ if you'd like)
 * Clear caches etc

That should get you going. A simple example would be to just add a new
image tt_content element and see if that works for you (and if you can
output it in the FE :)).

The update wizard is/was on our list, haven't checked if it really worked.

Hope this helps,

btw: thanks for the disclaimer, brought a smile on my face :)
