What's Kompile
Kompile is a KDE interface for automatic execution of configurations, compilation and installation of source tarball.
when you compile and install Kompile sources (with normal steps "configure && make && make install") some new voices are added to
konqueror action menu for tar-based compressed archives (.tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz, .tar.bz2).

What's new in v0.3
The major innovation of version 0.3 is profiles system. Now Kompile always use a profile to perform an installation/uninstallation.
You can define a custom profile for install an application or use default profile to do it. If you use default profile, Kompile will
create a package's profile based on options specified in your default profile.
Some profiles options are:
- Source tarball backup for uninstallation
- Packages informations (name, version, release, license, description)
- Temporary decompression folder options
- Source configuration options (prefix, enable/disable warnings, enable disable libs such as Qtopia, etc.)
- Compiler options (c/c++/fortran compilers flags, executables, prerocessor flags,linker flags, etc.)
- Simple user (= non root) installation options
- Use checkinstall instead make install (and specify checkinstall options)

Usage
There are 3 modes to use kompile:
1) Run Kompile form KDE System menu and use GUI to invoke Kompile functions. There are 3 major icons:
- Install options:
- Standard installation: use default profile to install new package
- Profiled installation: create a new profile from scratch to perform installation
- Uninstall options:
- Standard uninstallation: remove a package using default profile (may be useful if installed pkg has different prefix form default)
- Repair/Remove Installed Packages: give a list of installed packages to perform package's repair/remove
- Tools:
- Manage Profiles: Modify/delete existing profiles
- Kompile Setup: here you can specify you preference for some kompile functions and MODIFY YOUR DEFAULT PROFILE


2) Invoke Kompile from command line whit below options (form "kompile --help" command):
-i, --install Perform install operation
-u, --uninstall Perform uninstall operation
-t, --use-tarball Use specified tarball for requested operation [need -i or -u]
-p, --use-profile Use specified profile for operation [need -i or -u. Exclude "--use-tarball"]
-s, --search-profile Use with "--use-tarball ".Kompile searches a profile compatible with "". If doesn't find one compatible use default profile.

3) Select operations directly form konqueror kompile menu:
- Perform default package installation: use default profile to install new package. It's equal to "kompile --install --use-tarball "
- Search compatible profile for installation: Kompile searches a profile compatible with "" to perform installation. If doesn't find one compatible use default profile. It's equal to "kompile --install --search-profile --use-tarball "
- Perform default package uninstallation: remove a package using default profile (may be useful if installed pkg has different prefix form default). It's equal to "kompile --uninstall --use-tarball "
- Search compatible profile for uninstallation: Kompile searches a profile compatible with "" to perform installation. If doesn't find one compatible use default profile.It's equal to "kompile --uninstall --search-profile --use-tarball "

Is there any way Kompile can show INSTALL and README files before the installation? Any buttons to push to read those documents?

I´ve downloaded v0.2. So I´ve tried to compile it under SuSE 9.3 Pro.
kde-config --prefix
gives only
/opt/kde3
Then I type
./configure --prefix=/opt/kde3 in kompile-source-dir
Next I finish at this point
checking for KDE... configure: error:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE libraries installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!
I really don´t know how to deal with this error

Running installations with Kompile from Konqueror fail because it won't switch to root when it's time to run `make install'. Could it be possible to have Kompile use Kdesu switch to either root or sudo before this last step begins?

Installation options for non-root users is already present in v0.2. Are you using old 0.1 version? If yes upgrade to v0.2.

Ill second this. Im just going back to debian after trying gentoo for a few days. portage was great, with gimp and openoffice running much quicker. Having some of portage's flexibility and dpkg's power (ie idiot-proof :) ) would a killer app

Is there an easy possibility to specify default options for the ./configure command?

It would also be great to be able to have profiles for configure options, when installing. E.g. I usually compile KDE programs with the options --prefix=/opt/kde3 --disable-debug.

Oohh ... thanks for this note - Now for me there are two more question:
1)will this also speed up the runtime of the application ?
2)is this defult in kontruct, cause ill try the new konstruct build soon ?

Report

--disable-debug does not really speed up applications, but when you start a app from the konsole, it does not spam the konsole with debug output.

Konstruct does not use --disable-debug as default but you can change this.

I've create KSide because I don't like existing sidebars for Konqueror. It's only an experiment and not ready for distribution.

I managed to install Kompile, but at its start there's this message:


You have forgot to specify a valid sources tarball or specified file isn't a valid sources tarball!
Specify an existing and valid source tarball please.
Maual selection of sources tarball and building options manual setup will be avaiable in future version.

What is wrong with it?(sorry for the possibly stupid question, i'm very new.)

You must use Kompile actions into Konqueror. Open Konqueror (as file manager) click with right button on source package yopu want intall and select "Install with Kompile" form "Actions" menu.
You can also invoke compile from command line with:
~]# kompile [--uninstall] src_tarball.tar.bz2

Scrivo in italiano, mi pare assurdo andarmi a impelacare nell'inglese per poi non riuscire neanche a spiegarmi:)
Giusto qualche osservazione/richiesta:
Per l'uninstall dei pacchetti la trovo un idea geniale, ma vista la mole di alcuni programmi e la possibilità che questi in futuro non siano più reperibili in rete (magari per sbadatezza dei manteiner etc etc) sostituiti magari dall ultima versione, mi chiedo se ci sia il modo di riduerre il pacchetto originale per disinstallare in uno script generato dal programma e salvato in una dir specifica (magari scremando dal make la parte che riguarda l'unistanll).
Poi ovviamente mi unisco a quanti ti chiedono una finesta per il configure, sarebbe TROPPO carino (e credo altrettanto esoso?boh sicuramente sfacciato da parte mia chiedertelo:-) ) creare una gui che ti proponga le opzioni in modo boleano tramite dei menu tendina o con una sorta di lista di caselle da checkare un po' come quando trovi dei questionari online non so' se rendo l'idea, certo per i più inesperti poi se questa gui fosse come il configure --help, ovvero con descrizione accanto ad ogni voce, sarebbe il massimo:)
Per il checkinstall non sono molt daccordo, credo che la forza di quest'apps sia di non conoscere standard di pacchettizzazione, così facendo abbraccia tutte le distro esistenti, volendo poi riflettere su i vantaggi del checkinstall secondo me non sarebbero poi così irrinunciabili, cosa si ottiene in più dall'installazione di un pacchetto piuttosto che da un tarpalla?
-la capacità di disinstallare il pacchetto, la sua tracciabilità all'interno del sistema
Ok questo è un vantaggio non da poco, ma mi chiedo se affinando il discorso dell'uninstall non ci sia modo di tracciare questi pacchetti comunque, volendo uno si crea la cartella preposta a contenere tutte le tarballe che ha installato con kompile e così sà cos'ha nel sistema no? se poi si riuscisse ad utilizzare degli script sarebbe un risparmio di spazio non indifferente, da questi script si potrebbe ricavare quanto meno il numero/nome e posizione dei file, si potrebbero disinstallare sempre con kompile che ne potrebbe tenere traccia magari con una sorta di package manager.
-l'integrazione col sistema
questa nel limite dell'utente si otterrebbe impostando le varie variabili tipo prefix=/xxxx, parliamoci chiaro, voglio dire...stiamo parlando di un apps per installare programmi non per pacchettizzarli, pacchettizzare un programma è un lavoro serio che non credo spetti all utente finale a meno che questo non collabori attivamente con qualche progetto.
No, non credo che checkinstall sia una buona idea:), però credo che si potrebbe fare in modo di creare dei template per le diverse distro in modo da avere le variabili a portata di click, qualcosa tipo "compila per debian" etc etc, poi credo sia carino anche il discorso delle lib compilate statiche/dinamiche, sia mai si voglia compilare un programma per farlo girare sul proprio hdd o su una penna usb da portare con se.
Un ultima cosa, sarebbe bello peter salvare il programma compilato in formato compresso in modo da poterlo condividere o salvarlo da qualche parte.

Perdonami sesono stato troppo prolisso e grazie per l'attenzione:)

Ok I'm italian too, the sum of the text "upstears" is:
Compile options with boolean gui
Good idea for libs
Bad idea for checkinstall

I've already asked for checkinstall options and I'll ask again!!
To do packages for the system is always a good idea (track files and uninstall) and I can remind you that checkinstall does package rpm,deb and tgz! Do you know other systems expept ebuild gentoo?
so it should a good option for everyone
fedora,suse,slackware,(k)ubuntu.
In general when i'll make packages for the community i'll do with a lot of care but for my system is enough to compile with checkinstall to keep apt-get functional with software out of the repository

A feature I really like in KInstaller ( http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=19464 ) is that it keeps a list of apps installed by it and gives the option of uninstalling them. It also automatically backups and removes the original tarball upon succesful installation. Does Kompile do this too?

Report

The prefix itself is not a big deal, since one can easily find out what it is using

kde-config --prefix

See

kde-config --help

for other variables. So, one can safely run

configure `kde-config --prefix`

on anything. But, one still might want to add some other options.
