Re: [E-devel] Fw: [e-users] compiling ecore on a system running 2.4.x kernel

Stafford Horne wrote:
Hello, I had this conversation on the E Users list and got no response. Basically some users are complaining that ecore doesn't build on some systems unless you disable ecore-fb. My opinion is that we should disable ecore-fb by default until someone fixes the ecore-fb section of the configure.in to correctly detect the linux event header files.
I have already made the code change on my system and I am ready to commit it.  Does anyone have any objections? Is anyone going to have serious problems if I disable ecore-fb by default?

Of course it could still be enabled by doing --enable-ecore-fb.
It sounds good to me :)

And why not make it compile if the configure.in find the neccessary stuff .. ?
