Linux beta testers wanted
« on: May 09, 2005, 07:38:22 pm »
Hey guys, we often receive patches to add a feature or solve a bug in Code::Blocks. But we can't apply those patches until we've tested them in both Windows and Linux. Yiannis got Linux, but he's the main developer, and I only got Windows.

We'd appreciate any volunteers who would help test patches on the Linux platform(s). This would speed up the patch applications.

Thanks in advance.

As soon as I get my computer organized, I will try to test patches.. I will install slackware, so I could also make a package for it...
OS: winXP
Compiler: mingw
IDE: Code::Blocks SVN WX: 2.8.4 Wish list: faster code completion, easier debugging, refactoring

I'm trying to get it working right under SuSE Linux 9.2 Pro. I'll try to build the CVS as soon as possible, and flood you with bug reports :-)

Hi!
I'll try it under Fedora Core 3, time permitting.

*Desperately waves his arms, hoping someone will make an RPM package for RH9/FC3*

I've got SuSE 9.1.  I'll test under it when I'm up to speed under MSW.
There are two ways to code: watertight & bulletproof!

I will help test patches.  On a side note .. if you only have windows your missing out!  If  you don't want (or don't have room) to install Linux on your computer use a LiveCD.  Go get Gentoo and build a custom LiveCD.. plop the cd in.. boot up into Linux and test the patches.
OS: Gentoo Linux (Kernel 2.6.11 (2.6.12 is evil )   x64_x86)
WM: KDE 3.4.1
Compiler: GCC 3.4 (but of course) GLIBC: NPTL wxWidgets: 2.6.1

Right now I am trying to get codeblocks compiled on VectorLinux. This Linux is based on Slackware. (I couldn't install BSD because of hardware incompatibility...)

The actual version doesn't compile under Linux as I explain it here :(

You still can try but if I were you I wouldn't expect too much...:(

I'm on a FreeBSD 5.4 machine, and I'll do my best to try to make C::B run fine on FreeBSD before the 1.0 release.

Best regards,
