 ;) You won't, unless you're running the VL7.0 alpha...... It might be worth asking kc1di if it can be built for 6.0 - quite a few packages will no longer build against the 6.0 toolchain, so it may not be possible.

Thanks for the info.

I will wait.  I run a business on VL6.0 (some would say it runs me) and must wait til 7 comes out stable.

Hi John,
I'll see if I can get it to build in VL-6.0 hopefully this week, But my schedule is looking rather full right now.
1.3.12 is still beta so I did not try to build it for 6.0

Cheers,
Dave

Hi again John,

I took a quick look at it this morning.. seems that several packages in VL-6.0 would have to be upgraded to newer versions first.
one being wxGTK.  I can build against that statically but there are others also.. So it would be difficult but not impossible.
Will take a better look later as time permits. 

Let you know how I make out.

P.S. I'm afraid 6.0 is beginning to show it's age.   :-\
it may however build against SOHO Vl-6.0 But I do not have that installed at the moments, a lot of files in soho were updated from the 6.0 Std ones.

That may work. However, attempting to install something built for 6.0 SOHO in 6.0 Standard may well break Standard. I've just tried installing my 6.0 SOHO build of the latest Seamonkey to 6.0 - failure, though at least it didn't bork my 6.0 installation. Just doesn't work....

If anyone wants to try packages built for SOHO, I would have to strongly suggest that they do it manually - download the file and install either with Thunar's right-click context menu, or using install/upgradepkg. Using Gslapt or slapt-get is almost certainly going to pull in a lot of deps which may well break 6.0.
