Hi All, Due to the issue I've come across when stipulating '-DWITH_SHADOW' when building tdebase (see my last thread 'tdebase issue'), I decided to to build with ' -DWITH_ALL_OPTIONS=ON & -DBUILD_ALL=ON ' just to see what happens :) Anyway, this change has caused me to run into the "undefined reference to `kdemain'" issue all over again. Taking out the ' -DWITH_ALL_OPTIONS=ON' from the build allows all to proceed successfully. So my questions are should these references to kdemain exist in the source code or not and if they are supposed to, why am I getting the 'undefined reference' failure? I'm building on a (fedora) system that has not had any previous versions of TDE and I'm building from a clean pull from the git repository (http://scm.trinitydesktop.org/scm/git/tde). Cheers, Mike. -- Any question is easy if you know the answer!
