Build from source.
« on: August 23, 2010, 02:34:16 am »
Ok, so I've tried all the separate wki tutorials on building from source.
I've only success I've gotten have been error messages.

If some one whom, has successfully built LMC form source, could direct me to the guide they used, and maybe tell me what I'm doing wrong?.
I would be very thankful.

Some quick questions.
when building form source, what kubuntu version am I limited to? for example 7.10, 8.04, 8.10, .... I noticed when using the 2cd, cd based installer I'd get errors when trying to install over 8.04, or use a 8.04 live cd when trying to install on 7.10.

Another question I'd like to ask is, can some one submit a how to, on how the dvd snap shot that's available was made?

The biggest reason I'm trying to build from source is because I have a ATI HD4870.

Thanks in advanced.

Couple of notes:
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Building_LinuxMCE_0810 is the current way of building LinuxMCE
You can use any Ubuntu version >= 8.10 to setup a builder
There is absolutely, positively NO need to setup a builder because of ATI troubles.

Thanks, for the reply, I realize that setting up a builder to get around my ATI problems is kinda redundant. (silly me) <headSMASHwall/>
I've followed that tutorial, and ran in to errors. Maybe I'm doing something out of order?
What order did you do the instructions in?

Has their been any progress in this thread? Why kubuntu install Nvidia drivers, if the video card is ATI?

I'm really anxious to contribute.

Hello.

You should look at the contents of:

src/BootScripts and
src/X-Resolution

for a good place to figure out how to add ATI video card support.

Keep in mind, due to the limitations of X and OpenGL on ATI graphics cards running fglrx, you'll need to be sure and only use UI2 Masking at most.

I'm not sure what your talking about, where you talking about on the build box, the liveCD, DVD snapshot. or other?

thanks.

it's in the source tree, which you can check out from SVN.

get the LinuxMCE-0810 branch.
