Tonight, I was working with the developer of the wonderful little CLI application Rippit trying to get it to work on my system again. He gave me a patch to the tarball which cleared up one error, but then there was another, and GAH. Then I noticed that he used git, DUH, which I know how to clone from and then build. For instance, in this case, it was
mkdir rippit && cd rippit
git clone git://git.fedorahosted.org/rippit.git
cd rippit && mkdir build && cd build && cmake cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debugfull $HOME/rippit/rippit
sudo make install
From the error message, Trever could tell that I wasn't using the proper branch. So:
then, rather than ls to list all the branches,
git branch -a
git checkout remotes/origin/0.1 (I found this method on Stackoverflow. Thanks superlogical for your answer.)
From there, delete the build folder, and do the rest of the process as before. I love stringing together the commands with && which make it so much easier for me to copy/paste or use the up-arrow in Yakuake. I want to make it easy to rebuild so that testing can be quick.
Finally, a working Rippit again! Thanks again, Trever. You rock! KDE devels are the best.
