Re: [XaraXtreme-dev] FreeBSD port for XaraLX 0.3r712 created


I have just created a FreeBSD port for XaraLX.
Here is the related discussion at freebsd-ports@xxxxxxxxxxx:

Great news. Thanks!

See "Suggested port: open source Xara Xtreme" and particularly:

I had this error with 712, but it has disappeared in 715:
Compiler used: gcc (GCC) 3.4.4 [FreeBSD] 20050518
on i386 and amd64

Committers: you may look at the files/ directory of the port
and commit most (if not all) of the patches to the main repository.
Most of them are not FreeBSD specific.

I had a look for the patches and they all seem to be patches to wx (unless
I'm missing something). This is a bit peculiar because I thought FreeBSD

problems? (i.e. no patches required to XaraLX). If so, I suggest you report
to their bug-tracker at sourceforge (and submit the patch at sourceforge
too). It's a bit concerning wx does not seem to build out the box for

The 712/715 error looks like the same problem people were having

Re the version number incrementing, currently the build server builds
every 3-6 hours, and just pulls off the latest revision. So the revision

sure whether or not the old versions are kept. I feel we should at
least keep the old stable versions. Note you can always get any particular
revision from svn (obviously).
