Help for New Linux Users?
« on: October 15, 2013, 11:06:52 am »

We've built MC on Debian so far.  It runs on a few other distros.  It would be nice if each camp had a thread that had basic setup instructions in the first post, then answered questions in the following ones.

We could make the popular ones sticky threads.

Any volunteers?  Or if you have a better idea, please suggest something else.

Thanks.

I'd be happy to take on openSUSE.

A thread is okay, but perhaps a Wiki?

I can do Fedora.  I think a wiki would be good eventually (or in addition to the threads) but there's going to be a lot of conversation and troubleshooting going on in the short term that would probably be better served by the forum.

Honestly, if you've figured out how to install Arch Linux (+10 cookies if you didn't use any tutorial), you probably already know what you're doing. :P Still, it shouldn't be too difficult to do with Pacman commands and all.

hehe installing arch wasnt bad at all (they have an amazing wiki that guides you through the process). the main issue i think is that arch uses libcurl 4 while MC uses libcurl3. building and using lincurl3 can do all kinds of breakage i think so i dont know the exact way of handling this. Can jriver support/use libcurl4 alongside libcurl3 (again maybe a stupid question but im not a dev..). Are there other alternatives?

gotta say arch is really popular (i think at least in the top 5 distros) so i hope some other arch users here will give MC  a shot

If you can give me the output of 'gcc -v' I can probably give you a script that'll build you a correct libcurl.
