Oh sorry I didn't realise it was for WB1.3, boy that's retro.

What was your problem? I got it[1 (I presume?)] to compile and run inside Xephyr but I had to make a small change.

In lex.l remove the line that says '#define yywrap() 1' and at the top of the file add '%option noyyrap', it should then compile with a few unimportant warnings.

Then to make it run edit the .amiwmrc example and comment out/remove the ModulePath and IconDir options, and the line 'ToolItem NewMenu "Menu Two"'. I also needed to install the bdf fonts and tell the x server about them as linked on that page.

Let me download and try again, IIRC it was somewhere when actually applying the 1.3 patch I ran into problems.

You should make a Slackbuild

I find slackbuilds a bit clunky so wasn't going to do it but I was bored and created one. The build is pretty archaic so I had create a patch to fix Makefile.in to support DESTDIR. This patch conflicts with the WB1.x patch though so rather than make that optional as i'd intended they're both mandatory.

Then when finishing up the slackbuild meta data I realised the WB1.x patch[1] is for 0.20.48, and not the latest 0.21.2 version[2] - this is probably where you had trouble.

So ... you can have a look it[3] if you like but realise it's for the older version. Making the patch work with 0.21.2 will require some porting work.

Well, that was pretty easy.
Now I remember the issue, try saving the .amiwmrc from http://umlautllama.com/projects/amiwm/ in home and it throws errors everywhere when trying to startx

Well as i said above you need to fix a couple of things. Possibly better to use your old one and find what new bits are required to enable the WB1.x look.

I ran it from an existing working X session using Xephyr (Xnest should also work).
Code:
$ Xephyr -ac -resizeable :1 &
$ DISPLAY=:1 xterm
Then in the embedded xterm just run amiwm so you can debug without breaking anything. You possibly also need to run the font path stuff linked on the 1.x patch page (xset +fp and so on), at least with the provided amiwmrc.

Code:
# in the 'embedded' xterm
$ xset +fp /path/to/UImlautLlamaFonts
$ xset fp rehash
$ amiwm
e.g. see attached.
