Building Awesome from source is bullshit
source, tiling, thoughts
So I wanted AwesomeWM 3.5 on my Debian Sid box. Guess what, 3.5 is only in experimental? Nope.gif. I could have installed it with dpkg though as I now realize, but I went ahead and built it from source.
...oh dear what a mess.
The wiki is great. Especially these two things:
- Incomplete dependencies listed
- Different build methods
Yeah, maybe somebody should update it.. Anyway, after deciphering what deps it really wants, I finally got it installed! Yay me. Now I get to enjoy All these 3.5 goodies that are... err... well..... Ok atleast I got to install these goodlooking rc.lua's.
All's good in the kings lair once again. Long live tiling window managers!
