well, i tried compiling kiso, but configure gives me an error about not finding my kdelibs
i know i have my kdelibs-3.1.5 package installed (checked it in pkgtool, it is there, even checked the actual directories); i tried giving the extra command --with-extra-lib=/opt/kde/lib/ but that didn't work
Time to answer my own question (whilst watching Super Bowl....)
alright, the reason for failure was actually that come part of Qt couldn't find plugins during configure; since i had updated kde (alond with kdelibs), some links were removed; thus, by installing the newest Qt from slackware-current, configure worked!
but the program installer is a bit buggy; unless you specify some sort of prefix, the program will not correctly install; so when doing configure, make sure to use the --prefix=/usr/local flag
finally, i have one question: what is DCOPServer? kiso uses this program and i have a feeling that it is a security risk...
dcopserver is the program that allows KDE applications to communicate with each other.
but the thing is i havent tried kiso yet as i dont require to use it now , but i downloaded it as i loved winiso in windows so i searched for an alternative for it in linux
Hmmm I don't know if the latest version lost some of it's features, but kiso only supports ISO and NRG. cdemu worked for me, but its annoying having to use a text interface. Maybe I'll make a GTK frontend for it or something. Heh, as if I'll ever get around to that.
