I will not guarantee how long I'll keep the file available.
Unpack the archive to an appropriate build directory.
I have not been publicly supporting this for a while --- don't be surprised the docs are outdated.
That said, I have been using Trinity pre-R14.0 from GIT for a long time and am building a new package set right now.
Just run ./TDE.SlackBuild.
I have things configured as a two-step build run. The first step is to build TQt3. The second step builds all remaining packages. Use the SUITE=false option to build beyond the basic package set and use SUITE=false ALLAPPS=true to build more packages. Like so:
SUITE=false ALLAPPS=true ./TDE.SlackBuild
These build scripts presume a local GIT repository. Currently there is no upstream project support for GIT source tarballs. Source tarballs are available only for official releases. Once upon a time my build scripts supported making tarballs, but I haven't tested in a very long time.
The build scripts in the archive are horribly complicated because I'm part of the testing team and I need to support more than a typical user. Feel free to whittle the build scripts to the bare essentials, although you'll still need a local GIT repository or to make your own source tarballs. I don't have time but would be nice if somebody hacked the build scripts to something that could be maintained at slackbuilds.org. Take a look at the Slackware KDE 3.5.10 build scripts for 12.2 for an example how to streamline the build scripts to the essentials.
By coincidence, the pre-R14.0 sources are going into hard freeze tonight. That means focus is changing from testing anything to only fixing certain bug reports for the next weeks. An official R14.0 should be released within the next several weeks. At that time official source tarballs will be available, which will render things easier for many folks.
Last note: There are foundational changes in the upcoming release (the desktop still looks the same
). Don't mix and match GIT with 3.5.13.X. Stick with one or the other until R14.0 is officially released.
