fam 2.7.0 macosx patch

<<reverse < index > forward>>

I have begun the long, lonely journey of compiling GNOME 2.6, and the first roadblock I hit was in the prereqs with fam. Now I realize that you only really need this for Nautilus, and since I'm running MacOSX, I don't really need to use it as a file manager (although, surprisingly, there are times when it can be handy.) But I am a resolute pedant.

So I collected the FreeBSD patches for fam 2.6.8, applied them to the fam 2.7.0 source, did a little more tweaking specific for Darwin, and came up with this patch. So fam now compiles, but I don't know if it actually works.

It's pretty amazing the things you can do with code without even understanding a single line of it.

(The cleaner thing to do would be to utilize MacOSX's built-in file-change notification, but I have no idea how to do that.)

Comment/Excerpt: I have to show some appreciation to the wteirr just for bailing me out of this type of scenario. Right after scouting throughout the search engines and getting opinions which were not helpful, I thought my life was done. Existing minus the strategies to the problems you've fixed through your main article content is a serious case, and the ones which could have badly affected my entire career if I hadn't noticed your web site. Your main mastery and kindness in playing with all the pieces was very useful. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't come upon such a point like this. I can now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for this specialized and amazing help. I won't think twice to suggest your web page to any individual who needs and wants recommendations about this issue.

The most important explanations you've made, the straightforward web site menu, the friendships you will make it easier to create it's got most impressive, and it's making our son in addition to the family reckon that this idea is exciting, and that's quite mandatory. Many thanks for the whole thing!
