Build Nvu from the source
If you're not familiar with Mozilla build process, the following is for you.
If you are familiar with it, read it and you'll know what to change to match your own settings.
- First read the instructions in this document
- get mozilla/client.mk
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot co mozilla/client.mk
the password for the anonymous account is anonymous.
- If you're using Windows, save this file
in the mozilla
directory the previous command just created and edit it.
If you are using Linux, save this file in the mozilla directory the previous command just created and edit it.
In both cases the name of the file is .mozconfig (dot mozconfig).
Then carefully read the Mozilla build instructions for Windows or the detailed Mozilla build instructions for Linux and do
make -f client.mk pull_all
- get the Nvu specific code:
- build the code
make -f client.mk build_all
- after the build, there is in the mozilla/dist/bin (Linux) or mozilla\dist\bin (Windows) directory a file called nvu or nvu.exe. Just run it to start Nvu BUT don't forget to take a look at this article first...
The tarball is a 0.15, and the site manager it offers has more features than the one in the binary package.
NOW, who said we were not really doing an OSS project...
