You'd have to compile/package a lot of Gnome2 support as well ... is it really that much different than the version on SGI Freeware (1.8.10)?

Maybe not...

I got all excited to see a new stable version released, but i dug through the change log and didn't see anything in particular that needed it to happen. I supposes that there isn't any good reason other than it might be nice.

Are you sure? I compiled up xchat 2, and all the libraries I needed were installed from the latest freeware.

Code: Select all

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.3... no
configure: error: "Cannot find glib"


Latest GLIB on SGI Freeware is 1.2.10. It will most likely complain about GTK as well, but configure doesn't make it past GLIB :)

glib and glib2 are packaged seperately, IIRC.

the one major difference i noticed between 1.8 and 2.0 is that they finally group tabs by server. makes it worth the upgrade with that alone imo

I've fought with it a bit ... the configure script doesn't seem to want to see glib-2.0 even though it's installed. Setting CFLAGS='-I/usr/freeware/include/glib-2.0' works for the headers but it craps out trying to link the test program (unresolved symbols). Lots of fun.

You can just tell it to skip the tests and "trust you" that they're there...

Tried that ... it still dies at the glib check even after:

configure --disable-glibtest

The problem is that 'configure' still attempts to check the version of glib on the system, and compiles a small test program to do that.

That's nice of it to still do the test after you tell it not you..
It only has your best interest in mind :P
