Darktable

Unread postby JacquesT » Thu Dec 21, 2017 12:39 pm

http://www.darktable.org

Knowing next to nothing of compilers / dependancies etc, what is the chance of getting the source for Darktable compiled on Irix? I suspect too many GTK funky goodness??

Just a wild thought...

2.0 and newer releases need gkt3, but earlier did not.
However, all releases prior fail very quickly to build due to:

Glib version check failed. Version 2.28.8 was found, at least version 2.30 is required

I tested all darktable versions way back till 1.4. Our Nekoware glib version is still at 2.28.8. (Unless we have some new Beta versions of glib around?)
Not sure if its possible to hack the build scripts to force it to compile with our 2.28.8 version... or what consequences could come from that within darktable (if it even compiles at all).

of course it is. as you said, they're just scripts

what consequences could come from that within darktable (if it even compiles at all).

that's simple, if they use stuff that 2.28.8 doesn't have it won't work. the second, rather unlikely problem could be that stuff which both gtk versions in question have changed in 2.30 which might lead to funny results :P

in both cases the solution would be to check the affected functions and look for alternatives.

If we got 2.28.8 to compile it can't be that insurmountable to get 2.30 to compile, I'll take a look at it this weekend...
