I no longer have my web site running, where originally I had that 
documentation and build scripts. If you are interested then contact 
me directly off list. I don't want to offer my build scripts 
publicly. My build scripts are complex because I am one of the main 
testers for Trinity. I need flexibility with how I compile and 
test. That said, I would enjoy seeing somebody reduce the build 
scripts to a point that theoretically could become 
compatible. :-)

As a side note, would be nice if there was somebody using 13.1 or 
13.37 who could compile Trinity with HAL support to ensure that 
part of Trinity still functions as expected. I've gone full 14.0 
here on all systems because that reduces my own time and overhead. 
Probably likewise for you. That said, if there were simpler build 
scripts (like the KDE3 scripts in Slackware 12.2) and a basic wiki 
(we could add such a page to the Trinity wiki), then others running 
13.1 or 13.37 could test and enjoy Trinity too. :-)

There are other Slackers who want to run Trinity (browse the LQ 
forum), but there are no wiki pages or build scripts to make that 
more accessible for Slackers. :-( Possibly if we work together we 
could make that happen?
