Subject: Questions about Akregator development

I've recently downloaded Akregator in order to try to make some
customizations (basically adding some additional flags to articles
within feeds). I've encountered several problems with compiling and
debugging the program (although Akregator itself runs fine when I
compile it from source without modifications)
In general, there seems to be some issue with the library
"libakregatorprivate.dylib" (on Mac OS X/Darwin). If I make
modifications to the program (for instance, in akregator_part.cpp, in
order to modify the Settings panels), issuing "make" causes a
recompilation of everything up to "libakregatorpart.la", but the Dylib
(equivalent to a .so under Darwin) doesn't get relinked. As a result,
the next time the program is run, it still gets linked to an outdated
version of the Dylib. In order to get the Dylib to be updated, I have
to run a "make install". I'd like to be able to cause a relink of the
Dylib without having to do a full install (especially when I'm making
lots of changes and recompiles)
Second, I can't seem to get the debugger to run properly. If I use
gdb, it begins to load the symbols for the shared libraries, and then
says that it has lost connection to akregator. Similarly, I haven't
been able to get the debugger built into KDevelop to work either.
I'd be interested to find out what the development environment is that
you folks are using, and how it is that you are doing your debugging,
so that I could hopefully copy your setup to make things work on my
(also can be contacted at enorvelle@...)
