Howto compile apps

October 22, 2009 — BarryK
It is happening slowly, but I have updated another web page:


where to compile

"Perhaps if you have a hard drive with only a Windows partition on it (Windows NTFS and FAT filesystems must not be used!!!) and do not want to risk resizing it to make room for a Linux partition on the hard drive, consider using a second internal or USB hard drive." Or an extra .2fs file - I used to do that. Now I have 512MB of ram and 1GB swap, and compile almost everything in /tmp... a lot of people have more ram than this, so that could be quite an attractive option :)

ext2 f.s. in a file

"disciple, Yes, I should add that to the page as another option! I guess that I'm always just thinking from the point of view of someone who never uses Windows and doesn't have any NTFS partitions to worry about.

"Hmmmm, I haven't used windows for well over a year, and regularly for at least 5 years. But windows 7 is out. I guess some of us should investigate... did they upgrade ntfs? Wasn't that supposed to be a big deal with "longhorn" (one of vista's codenames)? If not, do they plan to upgrade ntfs soon? (er, sorry windows geeks! [hehe]) Cheers
