Well, I got the thing compiled, but with some problems - probably due to my
lack of knowledge than the package itself.
The first problem was mentioned in an earlier email - the ncurses-devel
package had to be installed. The second problem was that one of the
sub-packages still couldn't see ncurses-devel and I had to add "-lncurse" to
the LIBS variable of it's make file before it would compile. After that, the
make routine reported that ECHO@ was an invalid command and terminated. But
running make again didn't see this. "make install" proceeded, but also
reported that ECHO@ was an invalid command.
The benchmarks ran fine.
So, I checked out the manual at
http://brlcad.org/VolumeII-Introduction_to_MGED.pdf, and tried to run the
"mged" program. oops, can't find it. It's not under the source folder, or
under the installation directory. It just doesn't seem to exist. So, I'm
thinking I may be trying something wrong here - afterall the benchmarks
worked... I'm still trying to figure out how to run BRLCAD - it's supposed
to have a GUI of some sort.....
Back to playing.. (or trying to play...) :D
