Cool SlackBuild to make both STATIC and SHARED wireless-tools package.


I don't use wireless tools myself currently, since I'm wired to the internet; but, I found that a package I wanted to build, required at the least, a shared version of libiw, if not both the shared AND static version.

Symptoms of when you are in this boat, are error messages during compiling, similar to:

Code:
/usr/lib64/libiw.a(iwlib.so): In function `iw_mwatt2dbm':
iwlib.c:(.text+0x1a77): undefined reference to `log10'
iwlib.c:(.text+0x1a84): undefined reference to `ceil'

iwlib.c:(.text+0x22ac): undefined reference to `floor'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [i3status] Error 1
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
Anyhow, here is a modified SlackBuild, based on the one I have here on my Slack64 DVD (from when 13/64 first came out) which I've modified to build both a static & a shared wireless-tools package.
You'll need these new slack-desc files too, since I adjusted the package name slightly.
Enjoy, I hope someone else can use these too.

# This is the Slack13-64 SlackBuild for wireless-tools version 29.0
# Modified by GrapefruiTgirl:
# modified 2010 Jan 30 or so, to build two packages, one static, one shared.
# Installing them in either order will overwrite the first one installed
# which is OK because they both contain exactly the same stuff, only the
# shared package contains the shared lib and symlink, instead of the libiw.a
# static lib. So, installing both packages results in both a static, and a
# shared, library installed.
# Why?? Some things want to build against libiw, but can't, if there's no
# shared library. Example: i3status, a tool associated with i3 window manager.
# Is there a better way to do this? Sure! But I wanted this _now_ and it works.
