Build & Install SDK in Debian / Ubuntu + 64bit

Postby redj » Mon Aug 23, 2010 3:09 pm

Hey all,

This should be of some help to Debian / Ubuntu users. It contains some of the information I originally posted at http://ilyeus.wordpress.com, where other details like printouts are available. The procedure has been tested in Debian 5.0 and in Ubuntu 9.04 (32 bit) / 9.10 (32 bit) / 10.04 32 and 64 bit) and some others I forget.

Just the commands:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libc6-dev-i386 lib32z1-dev lib32ncurses5-dev
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev libpng12-dev libgif-dev libjpeg62-dev libncurses5-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev libx11-dev libxrender-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libxext-dev
sudo apt-get install upx-ucl
wget http://ecere.com/ecere-sdk-0.44pre1.tar.bz2
tar -xf ecere-sdk-0.44pre1.tar.bz2
cd ecere-sdk-0.44pre1/
make
sudo make install
ide
documentor


Ok, now some step by step.

64. Special step for 64 bit Debian / Ubuntu installations. Do this first if you have a 64 bit Linux installed.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libc6-dev-i386 lib32z1-dev lib32ncurses5-dev


1. First, you'll need a machine with development tools installed. If you don't have development tools installed or are unsure, run the following command. I find this is optional most of the time.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install build-essential


2. Ecere SDK has a few dependencies. It's time to make sure they are all present by running this command. (And the optional upx program that will be optionally used by the SDK.)

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev libpng12-dev libgif-dev libjpeg62-dev libncurses5-dev libfreetype6-dev libfontconfig1-dev libx11-dev libxrender-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libxext-dev
sudo apt-get install upx-ucl


3. You'll have to get the source code for Ecere SDK and extract it somewhere. Choose the way that works for you.


3. (continued) ...use this command to extract.

Code: Select all
tar -xf ecere-sdk-0.44pre1.tar.bz2


4. This source needs compiling. Follow the yellow command road.

Code: Select all
cd ecere-sdk-0.44pre1
make


5. Install me please.

Code: Select all
sudo make install


6. Enjoy me.

Code: Select all
ide
documentor


Ok so that's it, you've got Ecere SDK installed and should be able to compile the samples included in the tarball.

Enjoy.

You may need to go to Additional Drivers in your Linux distro and install the drivers for your graphics card there for the text to be visible in the IDE or other Ecere programs on Linux.

I had too install:

ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver

in Additional Drivers in Kubuntu 11.10.

I also tried the driver

ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver (post-release update)

But that failed to install but

ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver

Installed successfully :)
