Today I tried/failed to install xqf from cvs. Why? Simply because the games I play are until today only supported in the cvs version. So to get a nice browser for Tremulous and especially Warsow (it has only a strange java browser that really works) I went to http://www.linuxgames.com/xqf/docs.shtml#mozTocId355848 and followed what the FAQ told me to do.
1. Installing needed packages, because the FAQ says:
So I did:Compiling CVS snapshots requires that you have recent versions of automake (at least 1.6), autoconf, libtool and gettext installed. You also need to have both GTK1 and GTK2 development packages installed.
which installed autoconf automake1.4 autotools-dev libtoolCode:sudo apt-get install automake libtool
2. Getting cvs xqf:
3. Create the 'configure' script:Code:cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/xqf co -P xqf
but then I got this:Code:./autogen.sh
I found the files, but I have no idea where to copy them to. What is the "autoconf macro directory"? I tried it again with the files in the xqf/ folder, but that didn't seem right from the beginning...Running gettextize and intltoolize...
Copying file mkinstalldirs
Copying file po/Makefile.in.in
Please add the files
codeset.m4 gettext.m4 glibc21.m4 iconv.m4 isc-posix.m4 lcmessage.m4
from the /usr/share/aclocal directory to your autoconf macro directory
or directly to your aclocal.m4 file.
You will also need config.guess and config.sub, which you can get from
./autogen.sh: line 47: intltoolize: command not found
If somebody could help me I would update this "howto" and maybe help this way people like me to get the newest xqf running. Maybe there is a better and easier way to get it running, or maybe you want to write a script? Everything would be fine
