I did it !!! :-)


just now the first complete compile run of trunk/kdelibs/ finished using cmake as build system. :-))
Only minor things are still missing: khtml (gcc 3.2 is not able to compile it), install rules for headers, some configure checks are still missing.

More details later :-)



Euh, I thought we were going to use scons / bksys? So what's the use of cmake then?
And which build system should application porters use at the moment when compiling kdelibs (snapshot) ?

Read this to understand the situation:

Short version: Alex is working on making cmake work, nothing has been decided yet.

This means that the cmake-system is now already more advanced than Scons/bksys or how do I have to read this? I mean, you announced it just about one week ago while bksys is being worked on for month... Or am I comparing apples and peaches?

Great! Very good to hear. Taking what you have in subversion I've got the cmake configure step working in OS X with only minor modifications. Compiling, however, fails right off the bat because my Qt is setup as an OS X framework. It looks like FindQt4.cmake needs a bit more work for OS X.
