Hello all. I'm new to this dev list, but not new to lifelines-- I
contributed numerous report programs back in the 90's, and co-authored
the prototype architecture from which genweb was derived, using
lifelines as the genealogy engine.
I just built lifelines v 3.0.50 on NetBSD, but in the process
encountered several errors. What is your preferred method of reporting
such problems? Included below are the few errors I encountered, and the
corrections I applied.
Notes from building lifelines.3.0.52 on NetBSD
OS: NetBSD 3.0_STABLE
1. required "gmake" as makefiles use make arguments which are not available
under native NetBSD make -- this should be documented
2. fpattern.c failed to determine OS (using either make or gmake), following
patch was required:
[jjones] 230> diff src/stdlib/fpattern.c_old src/stdlib/fpattern.c
< defined(__unix__) || ( defined(__MACH__) && defined(__APPLE_CC__) )
> defined(__unix__) || defined(__NetBSD__) || ( defined(__MACH__)
&& defined(__APPLE_CC__) )
3. Menu option "Q" (quit current database) aborts with a core dump
4. Above error (#3) also occurs under Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike)
