I've been trying to update the CD installer binary for gnomesword to
your latest version, and I've had a little trouble compiling
Here's a few things to maybe look at:
If you don't have a system-wide install of sword, and pass something
it will still not find stuff.
That's ok, I just installed system-wide and everything compiled.
Things seemed to run ok, then I tried to compile as static as possible.
The easiest way for me to do this is to remove the gnomesword binary,
type make, copy the last link line: c++ .... and paste, placing a
-static after all of the -rdynamic and before all series of -l*
entries. This should produce and HUGE, absolutely static binary. You
can check the result with ldd gnomesword to see what .so's the binary
is dynamically linked to, and should get 0 back.
Anyway, I've had trouble with gtkhtml not being able to link statically,
so I left that one dynamic, and still have troubles. Is there anyway
you might provide me a binary that I should use for the CD? Link it
however you want, but I would suggest as static as possible to work on
the most systems. If you could email that to
firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll get it on there. Actually.... I'd
really like to give you an account so that you can update your stuff as
often as you'd like on the CD, if you'd be willing.
Let me know, and thanks tons for all your work on the frontend!
