Hi Luca, (cc-ing you since I'm not sure you're on the list, sorry for a possible duplicate.) Luca Favatella <firstname.lastname@example.org> (06/10/2008): > (I CCed the blender package mantainer. I hope it is not a mistake.) not at all. Anyway, I happen to read this list as well. :-) > I installed the version of Blender in Debian repositories. > The Blender package in Debian GNU/KFreeBSD is out of sync with the > GNU/Linux version, as showed at [Blender Debian unstable] (2.45 vs. > 2.46).

I'll try and reproduce that as soon as I get back a direct access to my GNU/kFreeBSD box. > The problem was that the GNU/KFreeBSD support patch had been disabled > because needing updating, as you can read from [Blender package > changelog].

Yes, it needed some work, and real life ate all my time until recently, that's still on my todolist, though. > The reason of the build failure was this (as you can read from > [Blender package changelog]).

Here is the last part of the build log: > Linking program ==> 'blender' > build/linux2/lib/libblender_creator.a(creator.o): In function `main': > /home/user/debian/blender-2.46+dfsg/source/creator/creator.c:281: > undefined reference to `zLhm65070058860608_br_init' > collect2: ld returned 1 exit status As I said, I'll look into it ASAP. > Can you please try to sync the package of Blender in Debian > GNU/KFreeBSD with that in Debian GNU/Linux? I'm currently waiting for 2.48 to be released (due since some days), and I'll package it for experimental, including an updated GNU/kFreeBSD patch. > I describe here what I modified to advance from the configuration > error to the compilation error (I am referring to Blender package > 2.46+dfsg-4). Thank you for that. BTW, usually one uses “diff -u” which provides with an even nicer output. ;-) Oh, and I'm really pleased someone at least uses Blender on GNU/kFreeBSD and that my previous patches weren't totally useless. ;-) Mraw, KiBi.
