hi

dont want to be a bother
but does anyone know the process of compiling jwm
if the source doesnt have a configure file

i want to compile the old ones on 217

minimal build
only x11
no options

some words of wisdom would be appreciated

thanks

For jwm-0.21x I do this:
Code:
make CC="gcc" CFLAGS="-pipe -Os -Wall -D_BSD_SOURCE -D_GNU_SOURCE -D__KERNEL_STRICT_NAMES -I/usr/include -I/usr/X11/include" LDFLAGS="-Wl,--gc-sections,--sort-common,-s -L/usr/lib -L/usr/X11/lib -lXpm -lXext -lX11"

but my source contains configure script...do you have a link for your source?

(I was typing this as goingnuts posted)
Its me again. I had a look at the really old versions. The missing header 'Xm/MwmUtil.h.' is part of openmotif. That dependency was removed in version 0.19, and there is a configure script for that version. There may be no benefit in going too far back (more likely to be bugs anyway).
I've got no other words of wisdom though.

thanks guys for all your help

i'm sorry for taking so long to answer
but i had to get home and check to see
if there was a configure file in the download

there is a makefile and a config.h but no configure file
this is for ver 1.0
maybe im doing something wrong
im going back to the jwm site to check the downloads

i like the old version i have from micromuppy
its small and works well
it only has 2 or so options listed
and i'm hoping to remove them
and see what i get

i will use goingnuts magic invocation when i try to compile

anyway thanks again
you guys are the greatest
