Help building DT


I’m trying to build DT but it’s never ending…

I’ve mix the fedora wiki + scbi

Hi @David_Berlioz,

I am not using fedora, but what happens if you
follow the fedora instructions here: GitHub - darktable-org/darktable: darktable is an open source photography workflow application and raw developer?

Pardon my ignorance, but what does scbi do?
Aha: evidently an acronym for setup config build install.

But it says “no build needed, versions match”, which I presume
means that the “setup” has been built. Perhaps you ought
to invoke that “config build”?

Have fun!

It also says “skip global install”. That “global install” means the process needs root permission at one stage.
So either there’s a command line option to allow for that (and then it ask for the root password) or you’ll have to run the scbi through sudo (which of course also asks for the root password).

Alternatively, you can probably specify a local install path.
