    Default AwesomeWM on Opensuse 11.4

    Hi there,

    How do I install AwesomWM on OpenSUSE 11.4?

    It's not in the Window Managers Repo for 11.4, but it is for 11.3?

    Best Regards

    It doesn't cover how to actually install it :S Only how to install it through the package manager in OpenSUSE, but the 11.4 repo doesn't contain Awesome :S

    You can fetch the src rpm for 11.3 and try to rebuild it on your 11.4
    (with rpm --rebuild <packagename>).

    Hi there,

    If you take a look here https://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Building_awesome it doesn't in fact list OpenSUSE, however you could always try and build it from source, shouldn't be too hard, it would also mean you'd get the most up to date build.

    Also could be a bit of fun

    I'm trying to do just that from the Git clone, but there's no makefile and no configure, so I don't really know how to proceed

    Their download page DOES list opensuse ><

    I cannot tell you if it works, I guess you will have to install some
    dependencies (rpmbuild should tell you which), but I think its worth a try.

    I just noticed that the binary rpm from 11.3 (awesome-3.4.9-1.1.x86_64.rpm
    in my case) can be installed in 11.4 (I cannot test right now if it works)
    without complaints.
