Re: [trinity-devel] question about building trinity from scratch

Hi Timothy,

thanks for the hint. Explicitly adding --enable-final did the job. 

My complete configuration:

./configure --disable-dnssd --without-arts --without-ssl --without-xinerama --disable-rpath --enable-final --prefix=/opt/kde-3.5.12

I have no clue why the debug version fails on gentoo. Do you have any information if the gentoo devs are pulling trinity into there kde-sunset overlay? There has been some talk about this but nothing substancial to my knowledge.

Btw. the HAL dependency should explicitly be checked during the configure process. I got rid of HAL with the xorg 1.8 upgrade and didn't expect trinity needs it. Are you planning to make HAL mandatory in the future?
