|0001974||FreeCAD||Bug||public||2015-02-18 22:48||2015-12-15 13:18|
|Fixed in Version||0.16|
|Summary||0001974: Building problem nad outdated README.linux - it's not clear how to build FreeCAD|
|Description||README.linux file is outdated. It's referring to configure/make tools instead of cmake.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
||Indeed, this readme is very out of date. I wonder if we shouldn't simply remove all the sub-readme files and direct users to the wiki instead (which is pretty much up to date)|
Maybe we can generate some build instructions with some mediawiki2text or mediawiki2markdown scripts, before every release.
To me it would seem nice if the repo or tar file would be sort of self contained.
||Hm great idea... I'll look for such a script. Indeed it would be simple to run it before each release...|
I had a test with several scripts, but none give very good results, lots of wrong formatting, lots of manual cleanup needed.
So I come back to my initial proposal to remove the 4 sub README files instead. I updated the main README file to give clearer information...
If nobody is against it, I'll do it in the next days
||+1, it's better to have a link to a proper info than something that is out of date. Half of current README.Linux is about required packages - is there a way of checking it with cmake? Something like PKG_CHECK_MODULES in autotools|
