findwild 1.5
« on: April 11, 2012, 09:37:55 pm »

findwild 1.2 is in the repositories.  1.5 is out (http://kornelix.squarespace.com/findwild).  I did rpm2tgz on the rpm package provided and got the following error when I tried to run findwild 1.5 slackware:  "findwild: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory."

Since google abandoned google-Desktop, findwild is the best way I have found to search my harddrive.  It would be great if ver 1.5 was in the repositories.

hi sledgehammer,
findwild 1.5 requires gtk+3.0.  We have not gone with that yet, and if we do, we would want to give it some careful testing before releasing.
Will keep you posted.

Hi Sledgehammer.
Got findwild 1.5 in the repo now. It will pull gtk+3 as a dependency and install that as well, but I think you will be fine. I have tested gtk+3 against my system with no I'll effects.

ken, if you have working sbbuilder SB's for this stuff we should put them in git for the bot.
