compiling software outside of repositories
hello, I'd like this to be a thread to discuss issues with compiling software from source that isn't found in the 64studio repos, either at all or because the version is dated. Has anyone had any luck with 1) MusE 0.9 http://muse-sequencer.org/ 2) Canorus 0.5 https://canorus.berlios.de/wiki/index.php/Main_Page 3) MuseScore 0.9.2 http://mscore.sourceforge.net/en/idx.php 4) Softwerk 3.0 http://ardour.org/files/softwerk-3.0.tar.bz2 1) MuseE I am stuck at the >=QT3.2 dependency during the ./configure, even after setting the QTPATH parameter. 2) Canorus 0.5 Will compile successfully, but I still need to satisfy some runtime dependencies. 3) MuseScore 0.9.2 Receives errors about no documentation, and aborts. 4) Softwerk 3.0 I haven't tried it yet. On the plus side, I have successfully installed jEdit 4.3 with the absolutely wonderful Lilypond-tool plugin. As I recall, mostly what it needed was the Java5 virtual machine package, which is in the repos. I have stated this elsewhere, but checkinstall is a wonderful tool to make packages and help keep track of programs you've compiled from source. Highly recommended, especially for inclusion in the 64studio repos. I will update with some more specifics later.
