When I woke up today, I decided that it is time to prepare annamirl, my Laptop for Nove Hrady. I need to get a KDE CVS version running, so that everybody thinks I am a 1337 KDE H4x0r. I am probably the only one with FreeBSD over there and I would like to show some of the FreeBSD specific problems to interested (or not) developers.
What comes into my mind are:
- Toolchain problems. How do I get gmake -f Makefile.cvs going with autoconf257 & Co.
- Klaptopdaemon FreeBSD ACPI support. Although the Klaptopdaemon Developers will probably not be there
- aRts problems. There are several issues with aRts on FreeBSD.
If I could resolve one of these issues at N7Y, it will be a great success.
To get KDE CVS going I need to do the following:
- install ccache and distcc. 600Mhz are too slow to hack on KDE
- install autoconf257 and automake17
- install kdelibs, kdebase, arts, kdemultimedia, kdeutils, kdeadmin and perhaps kdenetwork into a seperate prefix
Of course everytime I try to get something done, some people send my patches for ports that need to be committed…
