Jason’s musings

I just need a little time

The week of fixing compilation errors mostly

leave a comment »

My last post was complaining about QCA2, (wasn’t qmake’s fault!) that turned out to not be such a big problem after all. The linker (when compiling the tools) was looking for the qca library in the system directory, which of course contained QCA1. I solved it very ungracefully by writing over the system qca lib temporarily with a symlink to the qca2 lib. That worked. Although, now it even works without the need to do that, which i *think* is because of the fact that the lib is in /usr/local now. Although I can’t remember if that was the reason…

I went on to compile the latest dev version of psi from the source repository, which of course had problems… but thankfully it only required a ‘darcs pull’ (cvs update equivalent) the next day to solve the problem. There’s some nice stuff in the latest psi.

Went on then to compile various bits of Justin’s code. Had multiple compile errors but nothing to serious. Irisnet is a proof of concept tool that he wrote that does _presence._tcp service announcement, and ambrosia is a proof of concept jabber server that uses iris. Iris is very powerful

Also learned more about Qt this week, the whole signals and slots paradigm is pretty nifty! I’ve definately learned quite a bit from all the compile errors I’ve been getting too, both general Makefile and Qt specific.

Oh, I got the Google surprise! Hopefully nobody will read this and doesn’t already know!

And this is where I work and will be for only 1 more week…:
