Summary0000388: Rootless: CPPFLAGS/CFLAGS/LDFLAGS not set on Linux
DescriptionThe StartRootless script does not set CPPFLAGS, CFLAGS, or LDFLAGS unless the system is Darwin or Cygwin.

The result is that recipes cannot find libraries they depend on when configuring for compile (in rootless on linux) unless they already exist outside of the rootless installation.

Suggestion for all systems:
export CPPFLAGS="-I${goboPrefix}/System/Links/Headers"
export LDFLAGS="-L${goboPrefix}/System/Links/Libraries"
TagsNo tags attached.

Seriously, how dead is this project?

Here we have a fix from 2008 that is absolutely essential to bootstrapping a rootless install in 2012 and it is still marked as new even though the solution is present in the problem description.

Where did everyone go who was interested in this? Nix? Gentoo?

I don't think anybody has been maintaining the Rootless functionality of Gobolinux for some time. You can read more about this issue at http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.gobo.devel/3311 [^] and elsewhere in gobolinux-devel . I was going to do some Rootless work when I posted that, but other things ended up occupying my time by the time the discussion started happening.

Hi, folks. The project is indeed lacking some energy. I've just fixed StartRootless based on the proposed patch. Thanks.
