    Hi -
    compiling on (gentoo) linux, kernel 2.6.19, gcc-4.1.1-r3, wxGTK-2.6.3.3, I get errors. The error comes when the build script runs 'make' in the /MUTE/otherApps/fileSharing/userInterface/wxWindows dir:

      got to the bottom of this, as follows:

      my wxGTK was built with unicode support, this seems to break the mute build process. I (recompiled wxGTK WITHOUT unicode support, mute then built fine. On Gentoo, this can be done by typing (as root):
      ---
      USE="-unicode" emerge -v --ask wxGTK
      ---

      you can check if your wxGTK installation has unicode support (again on gentoo) with
      ---
      equery uses wxGTK
      ---
      ('unicode' appears with a '+' before it)

      AFTER building mute and checking that it runs ok, you can recompile wxGTK WITH unicode support if you need to - mute still runs fine. I had to do this because some apps I'd already built that used wxGTK were broken without the unicode support. To recompile with unicode support on gentoo this would be
      ---
      USE="unicode" emerge -v --ask wxGTK
      ---

      or just 'emerge -v --ask wxGTK' assuming that 'unicode' is set as a global 'use' flag or specifically set for wxGTK in /etc/portage/package.use

      cheers
