I spent like three hours working to get the 0.7 src compiled, so I want to share my problems and how I solved them.
Perhaps one of the developpers reads it and some things will be easier in the future.
I am not very experienced in Linux, so some things might seem strange to you, but - it's working...
I will give some NOTEs to the developpers, marked with NOTE.
Because I'm using Debian 3.0, some things might work on other distros that didn't work in Debian 3.0.
First of: You need: libqt3, libqt3-dev.
Then you have to add a unstable host in your /etc/apt/sources.list, for example: "deb ftp://126.96.36.199/debian unstable main contrib non-free"
Now update your apt and install the package libstdc++5. This will install a couple of programs and libraries, but nothing will be removed.
(NOTE: please say somewhere that we need libstdc++5, Debian 3.0 stable has libstdc++3!)
Download the sources and unpack, cd into the unpacked directory(I will refer to that dir as "top").
Type: export QTDIR=/usr/share/qt
Type: export QMAKESPEC=/usr/share/qt/mkspecs/linux-g++/qmake.conf
Then run in top: qmake -o Makefile Makefile.pro
Get into every subdir and run: qmake -o Makefile Makefile.pro
(NOTE: please mention that in the INSTALL file!)
Because Debian installs some qt libraries in /usr/lib/qt3/plugins/styles, you have to type(as superuser):
ln qt3/plugins/styles/libqwindowsstyle.so -s
ln libqwindowsstyle.so libqwindowsstyle.so.1 -s
(I really don't know why attal needs libqwindowsstyle.so for compiling, but libqwindowsstyle.so.1 for running)
Then edit every Makefile in every subdir and add at the end of the line beginning with "LIBS =":
Now... compile. Type make. (finally)
Uh no, not starting the program yet. It has NO idea where to look for its libraries.
Log in as root again, type:
ln top/libCommon.so.1 -s
Ok it should start now.
(NOTE: Developpers: the bins should really look into the top directory for the libs...)
Oh, and good luck - most probably you have to change something else on your system.
