boris 70e8e45855 With the release of ferite veriosn 0.99.1 today I have updated the ferite
side of things within the configure scripts to use it. (I will make sure that
e17 builds against the latest stable (and the latest cvs))

boris bad5da3d33 Ok this has got some initial support with ferite, currently you can only
assign ferite scripts to menus see data/scripts/ and look
at the exit menu item as an example. you will need ferite - i suggest that
you use cvs ferite as this is what I am developing this against. This, my
friends, is the first step of many :)

cpk 637e5ce74b Okay Raster, don't shoot me. I've cleaned up the whole thing. I've
added header files for most of the logical units, which greatly
reduces the size of e.h. The dependencies are probably still a bit
too dense, I'll look at that next. Things don't get rebuilt completely
any more when efsd is updated. I've also started command line options.
Only version info and the display variable are recognized so far.
I see no warnings here on my machine. Hope I didn't break anything.

Carsten Haitzler 22aa9d2a5d Sorry guys.. I had to revert a bunch of changes.. that's life.. but READ the
following (it's in the README now)

                       Enlightenment 0.17.0 CVS Code....
       The Rasterman -,

**************** READ THIS! It is of the UTMOST IMPORTANCE! *******************

This is the source code for Enlightenment 0.17 - If you got this you got it
from Enlightenment's CVS repository - or from someone who took it out of
the CVS repository.

The CVS repository is full of code *IN DEVELOPMENT* - that often means it's
in the middle of being worked on and may install strange things in strange
places, make a mess, and may not even be compatible with a final release. If
you at all use this code, you are HEAVILY URGED, when it is finally released,
to remove all traces of anything this CVS code base has installed on your
system (it is COMPLETELY up to you to keep track of that - do NOT expect any
help), and then install the full release on a cleaned system. Don't come
asking "can I just keep using CVS" oonce things are released - thqat is the
reason I pu this paragraph here - so you don't ask. The asnwer is the same
as above - if there is a proper final release use that. CVS is really only
for those havily hacking on the code.

Now we have that warning over and done with. How to build and install from

$ ./ && make
$ su
<- as root ->
# make install

You should be able to use the binary of enlightenment as a window manager.

you might be advised for cleanliness to do
$ ./ --prefix=/usr/local/e-17

so it installs relative to the /usr/local/e-17 directory and keeps all the
e-17 development code and data in that tree so it is easily removed when the
time codes.

NOTES: Read these carefully!

Enlightenment does not check for previously running Window Managers right
now - so you need to make sure no other WM is running - E will not do that
for you.

Enlightenment has no menus or keybindings or any way of launching
applications right now - you'll have to figure out an alternative way of
doing it.

Enlightenment only handles a small subset of ICCCM and thus will have bugs -
some applications will not behave correctly and may apear in odd spots or
not resize or place themselves properly etc. Expect this - it's code being
worked on. Just be happy it does as much as it already does.

Enlightenment RELIES on lots of libraires that have been written. Ecore,
Ebits, Evas, Edb, Imlib2 just to mention a few. Especially Ebits, Ecore and
Evas change in CVS often - you will need the absolute latest of these if you
wish Enlightenment 0.17 code to run properly or compile. If you update
Enlightenment from CVS update these too to get any changes they have in
their trees.

If you plan on working on the code... STOP! don't rush in and work on it -
even if you have CVS commit access - EXPECT me (Raster) to revert any changes
you make if you do this - regardless of the changes and how much work you
put into them. First read the code well and LEARN it. If you have questions
about some of the more obscure hidden program flow - ASK - but don't go
tampering with it - Enlightenment 0.17's code is much more complex and
intricate than E 0.16 - but at the same time it's much cleaner and more
object oriented. Learn it well first. Some parts of E 0.17 are "hacked" with
hard-coded stuff, just so, for now, it works. They will be virtualized and
imporved over time. If you have plans - tell me about them first - discuss
them before you go impliment them. I know I already have a lot of the
components of E 0.17's code planned in my head - but I won't get to them for
a while - and if people go impliment or hack bad stuff in, it means I have to
spend lots of time fixing something that is bad in the first place, or we
end up doing duplicate work. There *IS* a plan - believe it or not - but to
be honest - it's more complex and large than I can just write down in a
README, so talk about your ideas first. I'm going to be ruthless in keeping
the code neat, clean and free of nasty hacks (except ones I put in as
temporary stop-gap measures to make the thing work - since I know where
those are and what I need to do to do it right). If you can't find me or I
don't reply to your e-mail - don't get impatient - just wait. I currently
have no network access at home, so I'm doing a chunk of code offline. I'll
get to your mail and queries as time allows.

If you have problems with the code or bugs to report, kindly forward them to
/dev/null (the code is in now way or form ready for bug reports - I don't
want crap filling my mailbox).

I hope that clears things up for now.
