Compiling Motif for Linux

Compiling Motif for Linux

Post by Jeff Mille » Mon, 07 Oct 1996 04:00:00



We have source licenses for Motif 1.2 & 2.0 where I work.  How difficult
is it to get Motif to compile on Linux/XFree?  Specifically, Redhat 3.0.3.

I haven't tried compiling it before & am wondering what I may be getting
myself into.  

Thanks.

I have compiled Motif 2.0 for Linux and did not have any trouble at all
after getting the patches from one of the sites below and applying them
correctly.

Also, you need some time and a bunch of disk space (150 M compiled, I
think).  Sure doesn't hurt to have a fast processor also.
