For every problem contact me!!! bye!

IMPORTANT:
I can olny update with all fix and language the source code, the kubuntu 7.04 i386 deb and very rarely the debian testing package. if someone (the authors, possibly) want to fix the other packages (or do other ones), i'll post them!

DEVELOPMENT AND BUGFIX:
Probably some language files aren't correct. If someone want to fix them, send the fixed version to my email! thanks!
Please test the new version (1.8.2) and report bugs!

don't worry
blfs id not a distro but system compiled from null.
i can put some readable text in begin of /etc/issue if sysinfo will parse only first string.

I'm just wondering...why on earth do I get an error complaining about autoconf not found? Or an autoconf that is not recent enough.

It says I need version 2.53.

/usr/bin/autoconf --version

gives me 2.61.

I'm no programmer, but I haven't had this kind of problem when compiling from source before. Kinda annoying when there's no recent .deb for my machine.

I'm running Kubuntu 7.04 64-bit and I really want to be able to get this to work. The 64-bit deb for the earlier version works, but the new features sound interesting :)

sometimes the admin directory of the tarball is too old, and cannot detect recent versions of automake.

you can edit admin/cvs.sh to make sure that your automake version is supported.

or you can just copy that file from another tarball.

but maybe it is a completely other problem...

I haven't solved the temperature sensors issue yet, but otherwise it works.

I do have a package ready, although for some reason it won't display the temperature information. Yes, the developer files for those features are installed and were at compile time but the information still refuses to show. Other programs show the info so I'm not sure where the problem is.

Still, the package can be uploaded as-is if I only knew where and how.

The kio-sysinfo reads the temperature from "/proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature". If the information isn't written here, the temperature section will not shown. Tell me where your other programs read temperature and i fix the sources!

They only, as far as I know, use lm-sensors and hddtemp as backends.

i think that with the new version (1.7) you don't need autoconf... to compile the kio-slave simply type:
./configure
make
sudo make install
that's all... i think...
if you have other problems ask here...
bye!

I dunno the exact story behind it, but I have serious doubts that the Fedora 7 RPM contains the original source as offered, because when I tried to package the source for Fedora 7, I started getting compiler errors. Parts that sysinfo:/ rely on (like hwinfo) are not in Fedora.

Actually, that's why I started to hack on it to use HAL, as I mentioned the last time I posted here. I'll give creating the package a try again, though, just in case ;)

I haven't got a clue why it didn't work for you, unless there is a slight difference in your distro.

As for compiling from source, you might try finding the offending option in the source code, and removing it before trying to compile it. Might work, might not.

Oh this would be fine. Can you give me the software packagesnames which sysinfo:/ depends on, so I can test (cause the same ebuild worked for somebody else)

I'm having dependency problems on Ubuntu 7.04. I've used my normal update manager, and these packages are all the most recent. Are you specifically using something that is a higher rev than what appears to be shipped with 7.04?

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of kio-sysinfo:
kio-sysinfo depends on libart-2.0-2 (>= 2.3.18); however:
Version of libart-2.0-2 on system is 2.3.17-1.
kio-sysinfo depends on libc6 (>= 2.5-5); however:
Version of libc6 on system is 2.5-0ubuntu14.
kio-sysinfo depends on libgcc1 (>= 1:4.2-20070516); however:
Version of libgcc1 on system is 1:4.1.2-0ubuntu4.
kio-sysinfo depends on libstdc++6 (>= 4.2-20070516); however:
