(adapted from brokenmans post)
Just decompress the archive.(open terminal in current directory)

Code: Select all

tar -zxvf <your>.tar.gz
Make sure you have 05-devel.xzm module activated.
From a root terminal(same term just su) change into the unpacked directory

Code: Select all

cd <what its called>
./autogen.sh
./configure --help (will give you a list of options)
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-gtk=2.0 (my guess)
make
mkdir /tmp/ml
make DESTDIR=/tmp/ml install
dir2xzm /tmp/ml /tmp/<name of package>.xzm
rm -rf /tmp/ml
Your module will be in /tmp

Sorry. Yes I did the compiling on Porteus-v3.2rc5.

If you decide to compile it yourself follow ncmprhnsbl instructions above. Be sure you have the 05-devel.xzm module activated before you start.

Ok so it appears more dependencies are needed. I suggest updating to Porteus-v3.2rc5. It is approaching the final version.
