rxvt-unicode compiled for Buster

May 28, 2020 — BarryK

In EasyOS and EasyPup there have been reports of rxvt-unicode crashing. Forum member zygo reported that installing the official DEB package fixed it, and OscarTalks compiled it which also fixed it:

Easy has an old rxvt-unicode PET, from the earlier Pyro series. So, I have compiled it, version 9.22, like this:

# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=x86_64-pc-linux-gnu \
--disable-everything --enable-xft --enable-font-styles --enable-xim --enable-combining \
--with-res-name=rxvt --with-res-class=Rxvt --enable-rxvt-scroll --enable-frills \
--enable-keepscrolling --enable-selectionscrolling --enable-mousewheel --enable-slipwheeling \
--enable-smart-resize --enable-text-blink --enable-pointer-blank --enable-256-color
# make
# new2dir make install

That is very cut-down, which one hopes is not the cause of the crashing. Anyway, this will be in the 2.3-final.
