Well it took some time and I've become completely disgusted with M$ AGAIN.

I was fighting with one of M$ OS on my home workstation and I thought... If I'm going to put all this work into a system for me, why am I doing it on an OS that asks me over and over "Are you sure?" When I think we know the answer HELL YES I'M SURE QUIT ASKING.... wait....

I'll just make it so you can never ask again... hee hee hee... where's that ISO... aw crap... it's from 2005, no I don't want to try to go from glibc to glibc2 again that was a nightmare...

Ooooo.... new ISO.. new KIT! lets see... amd64 mmmm the sweet-sweet taste of 64bit bus.

I can now say, again, I am MS free on my home and work workstations!

Now if I can just get rid of that one .NET crappy import legacy app they make me support.

Anyway, I do have a question. I'm getting the latest E going WOO HOO the first major revision release of enlightenment in 10 years!

I've got my git repository setup and cloned, things are going fine few snags with deps needed libs that I solved.

My question is after I've gotten the git clone done and I'm in the compile dir there sometimes isn't a ./configure to run there is the ./autogen.sh.

What I've done is to run the ./autogen.sh and it creates the ./configure so I've done the autogen first and then the configure, do I really need to do both?

Does the ./autogen.sh do basicically the same things as the ./configure? If yes is that a general rule I can use when compiling?

Are you installing Gentoo or Linux from Scratch? :wink:

Until you get a working installation, what's the rationale for not just emerging enlightenment? Portage handles dependencies extremely well. If you really want the latest and greatest, there are the live ebuilds. (Those are the ones with the 9999 version.) No need to try to build it manually.

What are your goals?

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Enlightenment

^^ might be more useful ^^

autogen generates configure. yes you need to do both. no they are not the same.

Ah.. no

That wiki is for 0.17 out of date... (I wonder if I'll have a few min at work to fix it)

I also hold the addage, "Use the source, Luke!"

And yes I came to Gentoo from LFS way back in 1995, cut my nix teeth on VAX/VMS at KU when they were developing lynx.

Yes my installation works xorg, and twm run very well twm is just very ugly.

@666threesizes666 Thanks mate!

Just checking... You do know that Portage uses the source, right?

Not the GIT source.

I've always built E from source, what can I say I'm a masochist.

You know that Portage has binaries also right?

For just a just a few humongous packages, yes. I was just trying to find out why you wanted to build Enlightenment manually. "Because I want to," is an acceptable answer. ;)

Seems like a lot of work when "layman -a enlightenment && emerge -av =enlightenment-0.17.9999" would produce the same result.

Well, probably not the same now you mention it. The ebuilds are hardcoded (with no explanation as to why) to disable configure options the e devs strongly recommend, so you may actually be better off doing it manually...

Carry on then, and have fun.
