Thanks very much for taking the trouble to compile a statically linked version. You've made a pensioner very happy! I will try it with Debian Etch and Slackware 12 but first I'll have to remove the bits I added to make them work.

Thanks for trying it out ! :-)

The static version I compiled does not have Xft (ie. you'll have jagged edges in your fonts and stuff), in the next full build I'll be bundling the static Xft version with all other versions being in a separate archive (I'll still be building them at the same time).

I tried to create a version that worked on everything, and strangely enough had most problems with a few Ubuntu based systems I got to play with.... (with things like libstdc++, etc)...

This is so that you have a base you can use for compilation that works on the largest number of platforms.

Either way this static version works on everything I tried it on including Mepis 64Bit (which comes with a 32bit libc).
