    Question Awn extras

    For avant window navigator (awn) are there any of the extras for suse 11.1? I have downloaded the core application but the extras are not in the repos? Anyone know where i can get the extras or if there are any for 11.1?

    Hi
    You could build from the packman 11.0 source rpm, the spec file needs
    modification to skip the python modules check.

    Hi
    Download the src rpm from the packman site then if you right-click on
    it and select extract here. You should get 3 files, the tarball a spec
    file and a patch file. You need to copy these three files
    to /usr/src/packages/SOURCES. Open the spec file with a text editor and
    in the %build section it should be modified to read like this;
    Code:
    %configure\
    --disable-static \
    --disable-pymod-checks
    If you also look at the BuildRequires sections at the beginning it
    shows your the files that need to be installed to build it.

    Save it, then open a terminal in the /usr/src/packages/SOURCES and run
    the following command;
    Code:
    rpmbuild -ba awn-extras-applets.spec
    If all goes well you will see two files built;
    Code:
    /usr/src/packages/SRPMS/awn-extras-applets-0.2.6-1.pm.1.src.rpm
    and
    /usr/src/packages/i586/awn-extras-applets-0.2.6-1.pm.1.i586.rpm
    either copy those files to your home directory to install or use;
    Code:
    sudo rpm
    -Uhv /usr/src/packages/i586/awn-extras-applets-0.2.6-1.pm.1.i586.rpm
    The above command is all one line. NOTE this is all done as your user
    not root!.
