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
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:
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/libqwt.so
and edited it to
LIBS += /usr/lib/libboost_regex.so /usr/lib/libqwt.so
and the compile just dropped out and the binary was in the ./dist/Release/
I figured a newbie might stumble upon this or someone could craft a SlackBuild for this sooner or later?
