HylaFAX The world's
most advanced open source fax server
Re: Slackware Biuld Problems
Slackware 3.5 includes the egcs version of gcc. To build hylafax with this
compiler, first apply a gcc 2.8 patch for hylafax pl2; several versions
have been referred to in this list. I used one I found at Nico
Kadel-Garcia's web site. I had to edit it slightly, because the patch is
designed as a self-executing shell script which didn't work with my
Slackware 3.5 config, although I'm sure it does for the red hatters ;)
Just delete the top few lines, from #!/bin/sh down to patch <...
inclusive. Then run patch <gcc2.8patchname from the parent of the
hylafaxv4.0pl2 source directory, followed by .configure etc. Worked for
