Upgrade to 10.05?
« on: July 22, 2010, 09:04:35 pm »
I'm a beginner to c++ and IDE's in general and so what I need is an IDE that takes care of all the technical stuff while I concentrate on learning the language, and Code::Blocks 8.02 does that very well.  My question is should I even bother upgrading to 10.05, and if I do, are there any instructions a beginner can follow to upgrade correctly?

For example, do I need to remove 8.02 before installing 10.05? I downloaded the Debian .tar file and extracted it.  Is there any order I should follow in installing the 10-15 separate .deb packages? I looked for specific instructions but was unable to find them.

I'm using Lubuntu 10.04.

I tried `sudo dpkg -i *.deb` after using synaptic to uninstall 8.02 and I got this error when I ran codeblocks from the shell:

codeblocks: relocation error: /usr/lib/libcodeblocks.so.0: symbol _Z18wxSafeConvertWX2MBPKw, version WXU_2.8.2 not defined in file libwx_baseu-2.8.so.0 with link time reference

Hi,
code::blocks relies on the wxwidgets libraries. If i remember right then 8.02 was build with wxwidgets 2.6.x.
The version 10.05 was build with wxwidgets 2.8. So your system have to provide these library's.
Look with synaptic for wxwidgets2.8 or maybe wxgtk2.8, normally i use opensuse so i can only guess the name.
If it is not installed then install it.
