Description Andreas Pakulat 2006-04-22 00:36:58 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.2)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages


the katemake plugin has a hardcoded make-command of "gmake", which makes it unusable on default installations of Debian (don't know about other distributions). It would make much sense if this were configurable, at least with a config-file option (I know that KDE3 is basically feature frozen), so if there's any chance to make this happen in KDE3 please do so.

Try gmake and make as commands

This is a quick hack on katemake-plugin to try "make" as MAKE-command when
gmake failed.

Comment 2 Andreas Pakulat 2006-08-12 14:41:57 UTC
I fixed this with revision 572366, by letting configure check wether gmake is an existing program and if not use make as command.

Actually the autoconf stuff was stolen from KDevelop and I just saw that
there by accident :-)
