Old ways, stick to the old ways:
1.1 it was : cd unix, ./prebuild.sh, cd .. ; before change for 3.8
1.5 check if ok
2. ./configure COMPILED_BY="your name <your email>"
2.1 you can add options like --disable-io-restrictions
2.5 check if ok
3. make -j 6
4. make check
5. sudo make install
> sudo apt-get install povray would be SO nice....
1. someone to make a binary version (package installs binary, they do
not compile it)
2. someone with a PPA (personal package archive)
3. clearly identify the requirement on shared libraries used during step 1.
4. duplicating the package for each supported distribution
* Ubuntu: one LTS, one short lived every 6 months, 2 years between LTS
* Mint is based on Ubuntu LTS, 4 revision per LTS
which means someone probably need to install a lot of virtual machines
to make it cleanly.
