Hi all!

I just finished to install a fresh GNUstep environment on my new Slackware 10.2 system! I just tested it with GWorkspace and -- on a first glance -- it worked perfectly (using SVN-sources for the base and gui)

I used the installation instructions in


which were very helpful!

However, I had to do some adjustments to make GNUstep work correctly on my Slackware-Linux:

1) Instead of just adding a boot script (GSBoot.sh), I made a link in /etc/profile.d to /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh.

This is because sourcing in GNUstep.sh in the gnustep boot script does not work (when placed as a link in the /etc/rc.d directory as, say, rc.gnustep). However, the services are nevertheless started correctly.

2) I changed the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in /etc/profile.d/ld.sh from:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib/"


export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib/:/usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Libraries"

I /think/ the above ways are clean ways to make GNUstep work correctly on Slackware, but I am no Linux-Expert. If all this is o.k., one should perhaps add respective remarks in the build instructions ...

I would appreciate any remarks (for example, if I missed something in the build instructions that would have saved me from "hacking" my Linux-system :) )
