A git repository for insight

Patrick Monnerat

Hi friends,

I've set up a git repository for insight:
https://github.com/monnerat/insight
 
It currently supports:
- Upgradable tcl, tk, itcl, itk, binutils-gdb via git submodules.
- Use of the latest (i.e.: today) submodules versions.
- Bundled iwidgets snapshot (20140625).
- gdb in synchronous mode only.
- libgui's tkTable working even in 64-bit mode.
- Compiles and runs on Linux (other platforms not tested).
- Submodule fixes via embedded patches.
- A freedesktop launcher file.
- Production of complete source tarballs.

The old CVS log has been dropped: however the ChangeLog files have been
retained.

It's "experimental", and is intended to supply some "reference"
repository while the official sourceware repository is not populated.

Comments and pull requests are welcome :-)

Patrick

I've never used git submodules before, so keep this in mind. Following
the README instructions:

$ ls
binutils-gdb  COPYING  itcl  iwidgets  Makefile  README  testsuite
configure.ac  gdbtk    itk   libgui    patches   tcl     tk
$ git submodule foreach --recursive git pull
$ echo $?
0

[i.e., it did nothing]

What did work for me was:

$ git submodule init
Submodule 'binutils-gdb' (git://sourceware.org/git/binutils-gdb.git)
registered for path 'binutils-gdb'
Submodule 'itcl' (https://github.com/tcltk/itcl.git) registered for path
'itcl'
Submodule 'itk' (https://github.com/tcltk/itk.git) registered for path 'itk'
Submodule 'tcl' (https://github.com/tcltk/tcl.git) registered for path 'tcl'
Submodule 'tk' (https://github.com/tcltk/tk.git) registered for path 'tk'
$ git submodule update
Cloning into 'binutils-gdb'...
remote: Counting objects: 700435, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (125840/125840), done.
remote: Total 700435 (delta 566091), reused 664136 (delta 563189)
Receiving objects: 100% (700435/700435), 215.82 MiB | 4.81 MiB/s, done.
[snip]

I have a bunch of follow-up comments to make. I'll try to get those down
in email in the next few days.

Thank you for your work on this. It is nice to have some help.

Hi Keith,
I'm glad you're feeling better.

Sure! Submodules have to be initialized. I never pretended to have a
full git doc in the insight README :-)
Another way to get the whole stuff at once is to use "git clone
--recursive".
The info in the README file assumes you already have a "populated"
clone... But we can update it...

I'll receive them with great pleasure.

You're welcome.

P.S.: about the RedHat insight user that had tested github insight:
he/she can contact me about problems via e-mail or comments at github.
