Xaos

I have just installed xaos, but it was not running, libslang.so.1 was not found.
To make it run I copied libslang.so.1 from knoppix

Re: Xaos

xaos depends on slang and it provides the file needed:

[damir@Asteraceae /]$ pacman -Qo /usr/lib/libslang.so.1
/usr/lib/libslang.so.1 is owned by slang 1.4.9-1

it "should" work without any knoppix file

Re: Xaos

Basically, Xaos needs to be recompiled, but it's not gcc 3.4 friendly.  I've posted a bug to the upstream authors, but still haven't seen any activity from them.

  http://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?do=details&id=1122

If anyone has the time and inclincation to patch it to work with gcc 3.4, I'll gladly update it.

Re: Xaos

installing xaos does that (pacman -Sy xaos)

the slang .FILELIST :

usr/
usr/include/
usr/include/slang.h
usr/include/slcurses.h
usr/lib/
usr/lib/libslang.a

Re: Xaos

neither xaos nor slang supplied libslang.so.1 for me, but i copied it from my debian box and it worked. if anyone can't find a way to get it, lmk and i'll put it on my webserver.

Re: Xaos

If you read farphel's response from above, you'll see exactly why this is the case.  If anyone wants to put in the effort to get it working with gcc 3.4, it will surely be appreciated.

Re: Xaos

A kind soul supplied a gcc3.4 patch.  Xaos has been updated.  I had trouble compiling it with the 386asm switch.  Let me know if this causes any severe performance problems and I'll research it further.
