How to install 2.2-git in your home (an update)
Since Amarok switched to Gitorious, those of you running a local SVN build with markey’s instructions will have to do some changes to stay up-to-date::
First, you need to install git, which is in the package repositories of your distribution.
Erase the installation you have in ~/kde/src/amarok/
In the folder ~/kde/src/, type the following command:
git clone git://gitorious.org/amarok/amarok.git – > this will drag approx. 56Mb of data
Go to your build folder in ~/kde/build/amarok/ and erase its content, as you need to do a full rebuild
Run again the cmake command:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/kde -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debugfull $HOME/kde/src/amarok
Then complete with ‘make install’ and voilà, you have the most recent 2.2-git 🙂
For updates, you just run ‘git pull’ in your ~/kde/src/amarok/ folder and proceed as before with ‘make install’.
As usual, don’t hesitate to come to #amarok on irc.freenode.net for more questions.
