    Default hackedbox

    hi,

    anyone know of a pre-compiled hackedbox rpm that works on openSUSE? anything that saves me the time it takes compiling it and troubleshooting as I watch my compile becoming an epic fail.

    ok it might be easier with openSUSE 11 than it was on Fedora 9, but I just thought I should ask here if there was any one-click install options or whatever

    Compiling it takes less than 1 minute, I found 1 error, which I describe how
    to fix. Not everything in the linux world is one-click. Compiling is
    usually easy and quick. Plus you learn about your machine and how stuff
    works.

    From http://scrudgeware.org/projects/Hackedbox

    {download hackedbox-0.8.5.tar.gz}
    tar xzf hackedbox-0.8.5.tar.gz
    cd hackedbox-0.8.5

    edit src/Image.cc, and add

    #include <cstring>

    to Image.cc, line 42, following the other #include statements
    then:

    ../configure
    make
    sudo make install

    The addition of '#include <cstring>' to Image.cc is a result of the new
    gcc/g++ compiler version. Not something the original author has had to deal
    with in the past. (I imagine version 0.8.6 will include it!)

    You'll need several -devel packages:

    xorg-x11-libSM-devel
    xorg-x11-libICE-devel
    xorg-x11-libX11-devel
    xorg-x11-libXext-devel
    xorg-x11-libxcb-devel
    xorg-x11-libXau-devel

    And of course, the compiler and friends. For that, I recommend choosing
    'Patterns' in the 'Filter' dropdown of the YaST software management module,
    then click on "C/C++ Development". This will autoselect the packages you
    need to develop and compile programs.

    Click 'Accept' (bottom right) to start installation process, wait until it's
    done, say "No" to the question about "install more".

    Then follow the instructions at the top of this post, and you should have
    hackedbox to play with.

    There will likely be quirks to deal with, installation and usage and such,
    which are beyond this forum... ask the author for help.

    Not trying to be rude, but if these instructions are beyond you, I don't
    recommend you play with the Hackedbox window manager, I've left out some tiny
    details like 'click here, click there, here-a-click, there-a-click'... you
    should be able to figure stuff out yourself.

    No, I don't use it, I just now downloaded it, compiled it. It's cute.

    the 'one click' available apps for SUSE are easily found here (new to
    SUSE? make a note) <http://packages.opensuse-community.org/> which
    found nothing for hackedbox..

    and, i guess you know you should always check and see what YaST has.
    go YaST > Software > Manage Software > Search (make another note),
    which also found no hackedbox..

    the granddaddy RPM finder is <http://rpmfind.net/> (make another
    note) which turns up LOADS of hackedbox rpms...but they all seem to
    be for PPC, fedora, RH or Yellow Dog..

    so, it seems you will have to (with patience) follow Loni's guide to
    happiness :-)
