kicad on 14.1


does anyone have a how-to or notes on building an older version of kicad for 14.1? (older kicad as in not release 4.) i've been trying to compile the 14.0 package, but i'm stuck in a vicious circle with dependencies.

They have kicad in the 14.0 SBo repo, so that might be a good place to start. If you're running sbopkg, you can switch the repo to 14.0 temporarily while you build that so it can get all the correct dependencies.

https://slackbuilds.org/repository/1...lopment/kicad/

EDIT: Oh the version is "bzr_20130325", so hopefully that is prior to your 4.0 requirement.

yes, the 14.0 kicad version and it's build script is what i'm trying to use. sbopkg, as my understanding (correct me if i'm wrong), does not handle dependencies.

so i was hoping to find, for lack of a better word, is a shopping list. a walk through every 14.1 dependency required to build kicad.

build libgnome_this first,
then libgnome_other second,
then wx_else,
etc...

the kicad group does have a list of all the dependency requirements, but they don't offer any order or requirements for each of the individual packages.

If you use the sqg program that came with sbopkg (depending on the version of sbopkg you're running, it will either be in /usr/sbin/ or /usr/doc/sbopkg-$VERSION/contrib/sqg). It is a SlackBuild Queue Generator. You can run sqg -p kicad to have it build a queue file. Then you can run sbopkg -i kicad and select queue when it asks if you want to build the queue or the package.

NOTE: I am not positive how it grabs the repo version, so you might need to pass REPO_BRANCH=14.0 to both sqg and sbopkg. And if you haven't synced your repo against the 14.0 version, you'll need to do that first.

Code:
REPO_BRANCH=14.0 sbopkg -r
REPO_BRANCH=14.0 sqg -p kicad
REPO_BRANCH=14.0 sbopkg -i kicad

i was unaware of the sbopkg queue generator. i'll have to revisit the whole package again.

in the end i was able to get kicad built and working (only tested the schematic part.)
so for completeness, here are the steps in the working order:

1. libgnome_canvas v2.30.3
2. libgnome_cups v0.2.3
3. libgnomeprint v2.18.8
4. libgnomeprintui v2.18.6
5. wxPython --with-gnomeprint v2.8.12.1
6. kicad bzr_20130325
