CodeLite on Fedora?

Post by lazy_fox » Wed Jun 18, 2008 6:15 pm

How can I install CodeLite on Fedora 8?
There are only .exe and .deb package for download.
Why don't you release .rpm package or source tar ball for download?

You are correct, I planned to relese the source tar bar for a while now, but havnt did it - it will be available for next release.

Currently, you should be able to get the source files from SVN (I know other people on this forum managed to checkout the sources and build them successfully on FC9)

A detailed description of how to build CodeLite from sources, can be found here:

EDIT:
One obvious reason which I did not mention, is simply that I don't have access to FC machine, Only Ubuntu, Mac OS X and Windows.

Do you have a plant to release a rpm package?

For the moment, I will stick with .deb/win installer/Mac bundle/source tar ball

for the simple reason that I dont have a CentOS/FC/RH machine.

However, you could try and install 'alien':

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install alien
and then convert the provided .deb package to .rpm:

Code: Select all

sudo alien --scripts -r <codelite-deb-package-file-name>
this will generate a RPM from the DEB.
