• Building Qodem under Slackware

    From Sean Dennis@618:618/10 to All on Mon May 17 00:21:13 2021
    Hi everyone,

    I finally figured out how to get Qodem to build under Slackware correctly.
    I evidently had to add "-ldl" to the LIBS line in Qodem's Makefile that was created after running "./configure --enable-ssh". I admit I am lost as to
    why that was needed. Can anyone enlighten me on this? I was able to build
    the ncurses and the PDcurses X11 versions with SSH enabled successfully
    after figuring that issue out.

    I just hate that I figured out the fix but I don't know why it's needed,
    heh. A personal pet peeve. I stayed up nearly two hours past my bedtime figuring this out because it bothered me so much.

    Later,
    Sean

    it might call some routines in the SDL headers. I would assume that you have them
    installed already since you are building binaries on the box?

    Yes, SDL2 is already on there, but I'm moving the box to Devuan today or tomorrow.

    And then ArcaOS next week :)

    LOL. Sorry. But I could not resist :)

    No. I've recycled the old ArcaOS machine. No more. It's either MBSE or I shut down. After realizing how much it'd cost me to keep ArcaOS current and the realization that it will never be 64-bit, that's why I gave up on it. I
    do have my ArcaOS PE 5.0.3 (the version I purchased) install in a VM though. This workstation cannot do virtualization but when I can get a computer that will, I have that, OS/2 Warp 4.52, eCS 1.2MR, and eCS 2.0 available as VMs.

    LOL. Sorry. But I could not resist :)

    The last time I switched from MBSE back to OS/2 was because I was stupid and did not realize I broke my own doors ... and didn't figure out the problem until much later.

    I have successfully compiled one of my doors for DOS, OS/2, 32- and 64-bit Windows and 64-bit Linux using a highly modified version of Manndoor but I
    will probably be forking that into my own doorkit eventually.

    Right now I have other issues to worry about. When things calm down a bit
    and I can set up a much more comfortable "operating position", I will start working on my doors again in earnest as well as getting out all of my
    utilities as open source.
