PostPosted: Sun Nov 23, 2014 10:02 am    Post subject: Golem Window Manager Reply with quote

I tried to write a ebuild for Golem Window manager, which is not in Portage anymore.
Unfortunately, this is beyond my skills, so I tried to install it with the traditional way. I downloaded the package from the site http://sourceforge.net/projects/golem/ and compiled it successfully after a couple of mistakes that I solved. I can assure you, my friends, that is a wonderful window manager which deserves a second sight or a new chance for further development. It is fast, it is configurable and becomes beautiful. It has a lot of themes. It is something between Enlightenment 16 and Window Maker.
I post my unfinished ebuild. If someone knows how to make it work, it will be a pleasure to see golem in Portage again.
This is the ebuild:
Code:
# Copyright 1999-2014 Gentoo Foundation
# Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License v2
# $Header: $

EAPI=5

DESCRIPTION="Small window manager with themes and plugins"
HOMEPAGE="http://golem.sourgeforce.net/"
SRC_URI="mirror://sourceforge/golem/${PN}/${P}.tar.bz2"

LICENSE="BSD"
SLOT="0"
KEYWORDS="~x86"
IUSE="nls"

#DEPEND="virtual/glibc"
     
#RDEPEND="${DEPEND}"

#S="${WORKDIR}/${P}"

src_configure() {
        local myconf
        use nls && myconf="${myconf} --disable-i18n"

        econf \
                --prefix=/usr \
                --datadir=/usr/share \
                ${myconf}
}

src_install() {
        default || die

        sed -i 's/BINDIR=  */BINDIR=/; s/DATADIR=  */DATADIR=/' /usr/bin/golem.install

        dodoc PLUGINS THEMES

        einfo "The user you intend to use golem as (not root!!),"
        einfo "just type golem.install"


To help, I must say that the error is:
Code:
/var/tmp/portage/x11-wm/golem-0.0.6/work/golem-0.0.6/complib/asm-i386/cl_atomic_asm.h:104:24: fatal error: asm/system.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

I made it, when I deleted the following lines from the file cl_atomic_asm.h. in /home/user/Downloads/golem-0.0.6/complib/asm-i386/ :
Code:
#ifdef LINUX
#include <asm/system.h>
/* #include <asm/atomic.h> */
#else
/* #include <i386/atomic.h> */
#endif


If anyones want to continue my work, I wish him good luck. :wink:
