Post Building LinSSID-2.1 on Slackware-14.0 - a messy job (HOWTO)

The README wouldn't cover no install/make???

Then i found it hat to be prepared with

and the resulting Makefile had to be edited like:
CC            = gcc-4.6
CXX           = g++-4.6
edited to
CC            = gcc
CXX           = g++
only then
is to be run...

It just wouldn't compile at first?

Then I found the error had to to with changes in qwt:

a line in file MainForm.h was:
#include <qwt/qwt_plot...
and the qwt/ was superfluous, as I removed it make went further just to stop complaining about some missing:
but I have no shared *.a files ??? (at least none that I know anything about)

there where some more edits to be found...

I found that the boost lost -mt files recently, so I gambled:
LIBS += /usr/lib/libboost_regex-mt.a /usr/lib/
and edited it to
LIBS += /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/
and the compile just dropped out and the binary was in the ./dist/Release/ directory...


I figured a newbie might stumble upon this or someone could craft a SlackBuild for this sooner or later?

Best regards,
Stevan C.

Don't bother with building broken stuff, just convert the .deb package to .tgz.

Slackware 14.0 has already everything you need, you only have to install libraries/qwt from SBo.
