FYI, xchm fails here. It wants a bunch of libs starting with libwx_gtk2 and libwx_base, while the ones I have start with libwx_gtk2u and libwx_baseu. I think this means that it is built for a non-unicode wxgtk, while I have my own unicode build installed. Didn't the VL builds of wxgtk use to be unicode?

BTW, symlinking them doesn't work, in case you're wondering... ;D

Ok, but wxgtk has always been a complicated beastie, building it for one app can break another. For example, I needed unicode for pgadmin3, but I've read some apps won't work with that.


EDIT: Heh, I'd swear I was replying to a post from Caitlyn, but it dissapeared... ;D

...and it turns out the one we have will work for wxcam so I'm not touching it.

Yep, you were fast in replying to me.  I realized I didn't need to build wxGTK and removed the post  ;D  No sense fixing what isn't broken.

Ah, but then pgadmin3, for one, won't run. Anyway, got chmlib and xchm built with the slackbuilds from the repo and they work here now.
