Please do note that wxWidgets 2.8 is not officially supported. It might accidentially work (we already have done one or the other compatibility fix), but honestly I doubt it will really do 100%.

Regarding the missing revision number, you need subversion installed on your system and you must check out sources (not use a tarball) to be able to build a version that includes the revision information. The former is pretty obvious, and the latter is due to a typo in the present svn version of autorevision (which is already updated).

Hi,

I'll try with wxGTK2.8 installed, and also with the wxWidgets 2.6 as I did with the 1.0rc2 module.

Regarding the missing revision number, you need subversion installed on your system and you must check out sources

What I did is to give the following command:

"svn checkout http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/codeblocks/trunk"

and then I went into the trunk directory  and I created a tgz file that I used in my script to build the package.

What do you mean with "not use a tarball"? I should start from the trunk directory instead of using a source tgz file?

Thanks

The revision number is determined by information stored in the .svn subdirectories. Subversion will not know this is a version controlled project if they aren't there.
Usually one does not include these in a tarball and you probably did not either (does not make sense normally).

To work around the "tarball problem", Daniel made a quite smart modification to make dist which generates a distribution that does not need those directories.
However, the generated file is unluckily overwritten due to a typo in the svn version of autorevision (one == should be <=). Thus, until the updated version is in svn, the only valid way of building and having version number information is from the working copy, sorry.
