libxview on jump4.1 anyone??

libxview on jump4.1 anyone??

Post by Mike McCart » Mon, 26 Oct 1992 02:04:30

Hi all,

Yet another desperate plea for help.....
I got the xview3 sources off of, naively expecting
them to compile ok on my machine (0.98pl1 from SLS, Xfree86).  After
several days of sweat, I have managed to get libolgx compiled ok
(although I don't think it is a shared lib), and to test it I compiled
olwm.  It works no problem.  The problem is with libxview.

Firstly, almost every directory in the <XVIEW>/lib/libxview tree
had some files that needed tweaking, mostly adding #define NULL and
the like.  Now I have all the subdirectories compiled except
<libxview>/menu, <libxview>/notify, <libxview>/textsw, <libxview>/ttysw.

There were several problems with the source in libxview, but these
subdirs I cannot fix.   They are mostly problems with dereferencing
pointers to incomplete types, and problems with system specific
headers (i.e. FILE type does not have _flag as part of it's structure).

PLEASE....Does anybody have this xview toolkit working on jump4.1 and
Xfree86?  If so please send me either -- libxview.a and libolgx.a
(I already have the source, so no headers are necessary), or the
diffs for the source from export (or anywhere else).  I have space to
compile, but have exausted my skill in porting this sucker!

Any help greatly appreciated.....
Thanks in advance.

1. MuPAD and xview libraries: <-->

Hello there,

I am trying to get MuPAD to work.
This is what MuPAD wants:

bash#ldd -v /usr/local/MuPAD/i386/bin/Xxmupad
     ldd: version 1.7.3 (DLL Jump 3.0) => not found (DLL Jump 3.0) => not found (DLL Jump 6.0) => /usr/i486-linuxaout/lib/ (DLL Jump 4.6pl27) => /lib/

This is what I have :
bash# cd /usr/openwin/lib
bash# ls
Xinitrc                  libxview.a               openwin-menu-screensave
app-defaults               openwin-menu-t
config                 openwin-menu-u
help                     locale                   openwin-menu-xlock
libolgx.a                oldmenus                 openwin-ss-ex             openwin-menu             openwin-uit         openwin-menu-clocks      text_extras_menu
libsspkg.a               openwin-menu-d           textswrc              openwin-menu-e           ttyswrc            openwin-menu-g        openwin-menu-s

This is waht ldconfig sees:

bash# ldconfig -v
ldconfig: version 1.7.3

        ..... omitting stuff

/usr/openwin/lib: => => =>

        .........omitting stuff

What's going on? I have tried to rename to but
ldconfig didn't let itself get fooled and ignored this.
Any advice?

thanks, Bernd
