C::B nightly on LINUX
« on: October 10, 2009, 08:06:04 am »
I'm running Fedora 10 with the latest updates, kernel, etc. and I am able to install C::B using yum:

yum install codeblocks

Easy enough, but I see that the version is 8.02 - I can't seem to find a specific build number so I assume it is the 8.02 version released long ago.  I assume if I want to upgrade to the latest nightly I'll need to build from source, which will likely entail having to build WX also and linking to the library, correct?  Any general tips on what dependencies I'm going to have to fight with in the process?

You will need some basic build tools (auto*) and wx development libraries like: libwxbase2.8-dev, libwxgtk2.8-dev. You dont need to build them if are available in repository.

Then you can compile CB 2 ways:
- using command line, i.e ./configure and make way described in file BUILD
- or you can use code blocks project files and build using your older installed CB

Fantastic!!  I'll give it a go.

I assume that I'll get an error message stating that certain libraries aren't available, correct?  I can hopefully diagnose what I fail to get from that.

Thank you!!
