This package contains the kconfig frontends and parser. Kconfig is the configuration language used by the Linux kernel. This package is a simple copy of the frontends and the parser found in the Linux kernel source tree, with very minor changes to adapt them to being built out of the kernel build infrastructure. This package does *not* take any change to the parser or frontends. Such changes shall be directed directly to the appropriate mailing list, and they will eventually find their way is this package at the next sync: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org However, if there is a bug in the packaging infrastructure, patches are most welcome, of course! Most notably, because this is my very first autostuff-based package, I may have done mistakes here and there... As such, there are currently a few known limitations: - statically linking is much, much more complex than it should be. I have been seemingly able to build part of the frontends with such incantations of ./configure and make: ./configure LDFLAGS=-static nconf_EXTRA_LIBS=-lgpm \ --disable-shared --enable-static \ --disable-gconf --disable-qconf make LDFLAGS="-all-static -static-libtool-libs" - the nconf frontends requires (at least on my machine) to be linked against GPM; this is not detected when statically linking (hence the nconf_EXTRA_LIBS in the command above). - statically linking the graphical frontends (gconf and qconf) is *not* supported: I am missing static libs for Qt3Support, so qconf does not link. And there is a stupid bug in libtool that prevents properly linking against installed static libraries (seemingly fixed in 2.4, but not quite yet, in fact...), so gconf does not link. That's why they are disabled above. For a list of known issues, please also refer to file docs/known-issues.txt. Note that, provided you have the required dependencies, all frontends are properly built if you link dynamically. The following just works as expected: ./configure && make Note: if using the git tree, or changing the autostuff sources, you'll first have to run: autoreconf -fi
