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
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:
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 :) )
