Compiling on raspberry pi, t3shared works, but produces unusable binary #10
I am trying to build tilde for the raspberry pi.
Running this just shows: Debug mode: setting VM limit
Is there anywhere some more information how the actual package build process works (I will probably now try to understand the Arch AUR pkgbuild process and try to apply it for raspbian)?
Sorry for not getting back to you earlier. The process building using makefiles you describe is the development build process, which does indeed only build the tilde/src/.objects/edit binary. Hence the message about Debug mode that you saw.
The release builds are done with Makefiles generated from the files in the dist subdirectories. However, this requires some scripts I have not put up on github yet. What you probably want to try though is to build the latest released version (which can be found on http://os.ghalkes.nl/tilde). The tarballs released there contain the release Makefiles.
That said, the Debug binary should however still run normally. Does the program exit after showing the message? Or does it just hang?
Sorry, I was also on the road for a while and had to use a heavily customized mcedit unfortunately... ok, back to tilde.
I just took another look, and got the before-mentioned debug message several times, and resulting in a direct termination after showing it. I started several times more resulting in weird letters on the screen and termination, and started again and tilde came up and seems to work fine (also mouse and and ctrl-keys + selcection works).
Weird letter starts look like this:
So I assume something weird with the terminal emulation is going on. I am accessing the pi via ssh and running inside byobu (tmux), however, I have also now tried, running in plain bash in ssh - getting about the same results.
Exiting a "working" tilde shows:
After this I cannot start tilde anymore and it alway shows the garbled weird letters and Abortedrtual - also when trying different terminals and running outside of tmux/byobu. (It also showed Segmentation fault once).
Strangely, when using
Any other ideas what I should test?
If somebody else wants to compile tilde in a debain-like arm environment, you can base your work on this script here:
