OLVWM4 : successful compilation anyone?

OLVWM4 : successful compilation anyone?

Post by Narayanan M. Aja » Sat, 11 Jan 1997 04:00:00

I like  OLVWM and, in order to be able to decorate my desktop with
nifty pixmaps, was trying to make olvwm4 with pixmap support on my
pc with linux 96. Now I don't have a lot of experience with making
binaries. I usually try and pick up binaries or the installation
notes are good and a simple make suffices, but this time that did
not work. The symptoms are listed below. Can someone idetnify the
problem or tell me where to find an OLVWM binary with pixmap and
truecolor support?

Much in debt.



After unpacking the source in a temporary area, I simply did a
  make -f Makefile

The compilation went on seemingly without any problems until it got to

Below is the tail end of the compilation process.  

mv y.tab.c olvwmrc.c
lex -t parse.l > parse.c

gcc -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -funroll-loops -ffast-math -ansi  
-I/usr/openwin/include -I.   -I/usr/X11R6/include  -Dlinux
-DFUNCPROTO=15 -DNARROWPROTO  -I/usr/X11R6/include/X11 -I/usr/include/bsd
-include /usr/include/bsd/bsd.h -DOW_I18N_L3 -DIDENT -DXPM -DSHAPE
-DXLIB_ILLEGAL_ACCESS -DMAXPID=32768   -c olvwmrc.c -o olvwmrc.o

olvwmrc.y:529: warning: `YYDEBUG' redefined
y.tab.c:274: warning: this is the location of the previous definition
olvwmrc.y:582: warning: static declaration for `strexpand' follows non-static
y.tab.c: In function `yyparse':
y.tab.c:1527: `yyname' undeclared (first use this function)
y.tab.c:1527: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
y.tab.c:1527: for each function it appears in.)
y.tab.c:1624: `yyrule' undeclared (first use this function)
make: *** [olvwmrc.o] Error 1

I must add that /usr/openwin/lib/libolgx.so.3.2.2 and
/usr/openwin/lib/libxview.so.3.2.2  came with linux-96.


1. httperf - successful compilation on SunOs 5.8!!!

I had a lot of troubles compiling httperf on Solaris. Thanks to Martin
Arlitt who provided hints I finally got a recepie that works for
Solaris. Here is what you have to do:

1) Download source from
(http://www.hpl.hp.com/personal/David_Mosberger/httperf.html) and
unzip/untar it.
2) change configure file at lines 541 and 542
Original text:

New text required for Solaris:
LDFLAGS="-lsocket -lnsl -lelf -lresolv"

3) run "configure"
4) make

That will do it!
