This is the first program I tried to compile..
The configure is perfect...
when I make it, I get this error a lot:
./term.c:1487: warning: passing arg 3 of `tputs' from incompatible pointer type

like in every line of term.c ... any suggestions?
email me at robs@sv3.com .. thanks!

warnings aren't any problem. Where did compiling actually stop? There should be an "Error <bleh bleh bleh>. Stop." type line. Might be good to peruse a book on make :). Anywho, could you post the complete error? ie from the last warning down to the command prompt.

make[1]: *** [term.o] Error 1
make: *** [BitchX] Error 2

there it is!
I don't pretend to know anything about programming :)

I also get this problem when trying to compile under OS X 10.0.4 (Darwin 1.3.7). Quite a few lines show this 'tputs' thing. The last two lines of 'make' are:

Code:
make[1]: *** [term.o] Error 1
make: *** [BitchX] Error 2
I have reason to believe that this could be a OS X/Darwin specific problem.. but then again there IS a precompiled binary on bitchx.org so someone did something right..

Search around for directions on how to compile it for Solaris. That worked for me under the public beta at least

Different, I think...
MacOSX.org has a detailed guide on installing BX under Mac OS X. Easy as... All I need to know now is how to change the keymap in the terminal and in BitchX... If someone has any clue about this, reply or something... :)
