Compile SRC w/Porteus

Post#1 by willard » 18 Mar 2013, 17:35

Re: porteus-XFCE-v2.0-i486.iso

Dear Forum Members:

I have never done any compile from SRC in Linux and decided to try my luck using Porteus. The following reference SRC is compatible with Slackware, giving credence to this thread. The ISO referenced above is a fresh install on an 8GB thumb drive. In an attempt to keep the pile to a minimum, where should I start, in an effort to build a binary of AraLinux?

Your help is appreciated!

SRC:
http://glennmcc.org/aralinux/
EXTRACT:
tar -z -xf arachne-src-1.97.tgz
CD TO THE ASRC197 DIRECTORY:
make -f svgalib/makefile

AraLinux SRC will compile on the latest Slackware build:

http://slackware.com/

In addition to SVGALib, these DEPS are required, says the developer...

libc-2.*
libpthread-*
libvga.so.1.*
libvgagl.so.1.*


The Linux version of Arachne 1.97 is available in SRC only.

hi willard,

compiled fine once i installed svgalib package:

got a segfault in vbox when was trying to launch it. this app is nearly 5 years old so may be not compatible with recent glibc anymore...
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Had also the segfault when tried to compile. I thought that my Porteus was corrupted. Black screen with error written in white is not a good thing sometimes. :)

Just use devel module included into default ISO.
