Be advised the software is classified as ALPHA, so user beware.

Yup, that's the general warning we give people.

But it is pretty stable and I (and other members of the dev team) use it as our everyday DE.

Once it gets stable try to get it up on slackbuilds.org so everyone can get a hand on it.

It compiles with no problems on 13.37 32bit. The problems appear when you wan to get it running. I am trying this out since several weeks, but havent tried the newest git yet. If I get it working, I will report back. (tough not sure if I have the time)

Yes, usually compiling isn't the problem, it's getting it running.

I've managed to build and run CDE on Slackware 13.37 from latest git by folowing the build instructions on the Wiki religiously. It runs but the file manager, program manager and trash all fail with TT_ERR_PROCID. I'm pretty sure /usr/dt/bin/rpc.ttdbserver is running.

EDIT: got it running properly. I had to restart /etc/rc.d/rc.rpc for some reason.

EDIT2: Did some more fiddling and you have to run /usr/dt/bin/rpc.ttbserver as user, not root, and it has to be running, for dtfile to work under Slackware 13.37

EDIT3: fiddled around a bit more and noticed that whatever you do, you will get 2 or 3 TT_ERR_PROCID's before dtfile decides to work.

Something you may want to consider is actually getting nawk ("New AWK") from Brian Kernighan's Home page at http://www.cs.princeton.edu/~bwk/; the name AWK is for its three creators, Alfred Aho, Peter Weinberger and Brian Kernighan. New AWK, nawk, dates from c. 1988 and augments "original AWK" (also "old" AWK) -- both are usually installed on Solaris machines and oawk is generally symlinked to /bin/awk or /usr/bin/awk. GNU AWK (gawk is pretty much look-work-alike nawk (but not 100%).

CDE, standard equipment in Solaris for a long, long time (probably still is), does directly call nawk and is optimized for it (you might have to twiddle something for gawk and, hey, why bother if you can have the original).

It downloads, build easily, and there you go (it builds to an a.out which you just move:
Code:
mv a.out /bin/nawk
and there you go.

Hope this helps some.
