I've now removed the old pre-opensource rpms. If you need 0.89 then let me know.
For more information about Xforms, visit the
Xforms Home Page.
The rpm packages are built from the old release stuff on the world.std.com site. Its now all hosted at http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/xforms and from there you can download the relevant source. My builds are using the standard sources, with the only exception being the 1.0 versions have my image patch applied (this fixes a bug in flimage_dup(), and makes jpeg + gif reading better).
The most recent version I've built is 1.0 and the original source is available on savannah
My RPM sets all have the same structure and break the release into 3 parts.
cd /usr/lib/xforms/DEMOS xmkmf -a makeNote that I've done a couple of minor hacks to the Imakefile to make this work without the rest of the package. If it doesn't work for you or if you are really serious about building from scratch - go get the master sources and do it properly.
The tools in the devel packages and the demos in the pre-built demos packages are dynamic linked (hence you need appropriate glibc to link against). I've tested the new 1.0 builds on RH5.2, RH7.1 and FC2 and they all seem fine.. The base "xforms" package is likely to be more library version tolerant and thats all you need if you just want to run xforms apps.

The packages were all built with a script similar to the following
#!/bin/sh ROOT=/home/xforms echo "topdir: $ROOT/build" > $ROOT/rpmrc rpm --rcfile $ROOT/rpmrc -ba xforms-generic.spec rm $ROOT/rpmrcI used rpm 2.5.5 (since thats whats on my trusty old system), and I had a lot of trouble with version 3 letting me have my own build root.
