Re: Installing yade on kubuntu.
Janek : Thanks, your explanations for installing Yade on Kubuntu 6.06
are clear and usefull.
I have installed Yade successfuly yesterday, on Kubuntu 6.06 - _AMD64 port_.
## Note that for compiling Yade for AMD64, the option -fPIC is required.
No idea what is this option for... it seems it is a common problem of
gcc in the AMD64 version.
Consequently, the "make" command must look like this :
make compile_install CXXFLAGS='-fPIC -pthread -lpthread -O3' INSTALL_DIR='/YADE' PREFIX_DIR='/home/joeuser'
## Installing QGLviewer was my first backporting experience from
sources, your explanations were crucial at this point.
However, once QGLviewer was installed following your guidelines, I
realised that in fact there is a QGLviewer package available in kubuntu!
I didn't try it, perhaps I will.
So, why do we need to compile our own version?
