# To subscribers of the xforms list from Reuben Thomas <email@example.com> :
Timothy's sent me the current sources for 0.89 (thanks!) and I've compiled
them up on ARM Linux. This has indeed cured my problems in LyX: I thought
the Debian maintainers of both packages might like to know. LyX 1.1.6fix1 is
now running happily AFAICS.
By the way, in the process, I made sure that libforms was linked against
libjpeg and libXpm dynamically, which shaves quite a lot off its size.
I have some remaining questions and notes:
1. I set XForms up to build for Linux. When I started building, I got lots
of complaints about the symbol "Pixmap"; when I looked at the forms.h that
had been built, I found no mention of xpm.h. At this point, I was still
using the supplied xpm distribution, and hadn't fiddled things to use the
installed xpm lib. A #include <X11/xpm.h> fixed that, but I presume I did
2. Next, I got a compile error because FL_RGB2PIXEL_ is defined twice in
forms.h. Putting #if 0 round the second definition cured this, but again, I
presume I was doing something wrong.
3. When I did make install, make looped installing over and over until it
ran out of memory (because each time it looped it recursed). I'm not sure if
I did anything wrong here or not.
4. It's a little annoying that XForms doesn't install in /usr/local by
default on Linux (except, curiously, for fdesign).
5. Timothy: what tests should I run and how do I then build a binary dist to
send you? Thanks very much; I'm looking forward to being able to use LyX on
my ARM box.
