Installation of GNOME Netstatus

Install GNOME Netstatus by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0` \
    --libexecdir=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/sbin \
    --sysconfdir=/etc/gnome --localstatedir=/var/lib &&

This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install &&
chmod 644 `pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`\

Command Explanations

--libexecdir=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0`/sbin: This switch puts libexec files in $GNOME_PREFIX/sbin instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/libexec.

--sysconfdir=/etc/gnome: This switch puts configuration files in /etc/gnome instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/etc.

--localstatedir=/var/lib: This switch puts ScrollKeeper files in /var/lib/scrollkeeper instead of $GNOME_PREFIX/var/scrollkeeper.
