Anybody out there running E 0.16.4 on DEC/Compaq Alpha's?
OK.. had trouble with getting E to run on the alpha (intel builds were
a piece of cake). Found and implimented the hack to the "econfig.h",
where you commend out "#define WITH_ZOOM 1"
#define ENLIGHTENMENT_MICRO "4"
/* #undef AUTOUPGRADE */
#define WITH_TARTY_WARP 1
/* #define WITH_ZOOM 1
#define ENABLE_NLS 1
/* #undef HAVE_CATGETS */
after building again, E runs just fine and is solid with only one
exception (that I can find in 4 weeks of testing).. for some reason, I
cannot get any of the Epplets to run, no errors when running from the
command line, process shows up under ps -aux as running, but nothing on
the display.. Really wierd... I have them running fine on Intel
Again, E 0.16.4 is solid as a rock..
building from source code tar balls, staying away from .rpm's for stuff
have all libs and updates as prescribed on the E home page
Alpah XL 300, 128mb RAM, blah, blah, etc..
thanks for any imput..
