Mrxvt Won't Compile
« on: February 17, 2007, 01:05:37 pm »
I'm trying to build MRXVT, but it fails shortly after starting to compile with a long list of syntax errors. I think I'm missing a library or something, but I can't find a list of what is required anywhere. Any ideas?
SL-C750- pdaXrom beta 1 (mostly unused)
Current distro: Gentoo

The version is 0.5.2 with the patch from the website, but I can't tell you the errors at the moment, as I'm trying to compile Fluxbox again. I'm fairly sure there were a bunch of "undefined symbol" errors. I believe that there were also a bunch of *'s in the error messages. I'll get back with more info once Fluxbox finishes or fails.

OK, here's a summary of the errors:

A bunch of "error: syntax errors before '*/:/}' token"s (*/:/} being one of *, :, or })

error: stray '$' in program

warning: data definition has no type or storage class

A bunch of "_________ undeclared (first use in this function)"s

That pretty much sums it up. It sounds like a header is missing, I just don't know what one.

ulhume has already packaged 0.5.2 version and I've downloaded it. But I forgot the exact source of the package and it is not listed in his contrib feed. I can't google it either. So here is his package:


[EDIT]
Here are his doc packages as well.

Thank you! It is much faster than 0.5.1, and it doesn't switch to Greek when you press Fn.  

I'd still like to build it, however. Does anybody (Ulhume?) have any ideas on what could be missing?

The Greek thingy can be turned off at compiling time (which is lost for good), or in .mrxvtrc (there is an option for greek).  
As for the speed, I forgot whether I have optimized the build when making it ...

I'd still like to tweak options. Also, it's satisfying to finally get something to work.

Just as a note, can you change the number of lines to save in .mrxvtrc?

Yes, it's also available in the options.

By "tweak options" I mean I'd still like to compile it. But, yes, I do need that sample .mrxvtrc.
