How Do I Compile KDM?

(Sorry if this does not belong in this section)

I am somewhat new to make and compiling in linux. I want to change somethings about KDM's frontend.

But now that I have changed what I wanted, I am confused to how I can compile it and test it out, without installing the entire kdebase package.

What I tried so far: move the kdm/ , admin/ , config*, Make*, ac* to a folder. Changing KDM. Run ./configure. Then make.

That does not work because the rest of the package is not present, thus make fails.

If your soruce directory is named kdebase try adding a file inst-apps with only kdm written in it.

I am not sure if it is enough. Also do not forget to install the developement packages of Qt, Arts and kdelibs.

Have a nice day!

Yeah. That tip pointed me in the correct direction: working with KDevelop and KDE CVS.

Which I still do not really understand. I just decided to make/compile the entire package, since it doesn't take too long any way (and I can just stop it after it compiles KDM). =]
