    Default gCVS under OpenSUSE 11.1?

    Hi all,

    First post here, hope this is the right place for it. Searching here and t'internet in general has yielded no results...

    Has anyone managed to build gCVS to run under OpenSUSE 11.1 (x86-64 in case that matters)? It was included in the last SUSE I used (10.3) but is conspicuous by its absence now I've upgraded. I downloaded the source for the GTK2 branch following instructions here:

    CvsGui

    But found that all I get is a mess of autoconf errors.

    Can anyone help?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Hi
    Had a quick look at it, it's an old application and appears to have
    been made against gcc3. I did a quick build but still errors out so
    files need patching even with gcc3.3.

    Have you thought of looking at maybe eclipse or netbeans instead?

    Hi Malcolm, thanks for the response - sorry for not replying sooner, turns out I didn't have email notification turned on!

    I'm using Cervisia for the moment but don't really like it, and I really can't stand Eclipse - too much faffing with projects, I just want to point it at an existing CVS sandbox and not worry about anything else.

    Just personal preference of course, but it's a shame gCVS hasn't been kept up to date with regards to the tool chain!

    Cheers,

    I wouldn't mind to have the package too.

    I don't know enough about C++ and the reasons why it is not building with current gcc. I suppose, those are just little things.

    Thank you,
    Harald

    Well with some patching, use of gcc 3.3 and adding a desktop file it
    builds as an rpm on both 32/64 bit locally on openSuSE 11.1. I'm just
    running it through the build service now (and will no doubt error out
    lol).

    What OS releases are required, just 11.1?

    11.1 would be just fine for me, but maybe 11.0 as well for those still using that release?

    Cheers!

    Hi
    Ok, it's building and should be visible at
    http://software.opensuse.org/search? sometime in the near future

    Hopefully it's all functioning, please advise of any issues good or
    bad

    Hi Malcolm,

    Many thanks for doing the build! Installed and running, however it seems to be missing all of its icons/bitmaps - the button bar is a teeeeny row of grey squares, maybe six pixels high, and files and folders have no file/folder icons.

    I think it's useable as it is, but perhaps I can find the bitmaps in the source and put them where they should be?

    Cheers!
