want to use awesome-3.0 window manager...

awesome-3.0 relies on xcb-util so I made the spec and srpm here:

http://bbbush.fedorapeople.org/xcb-util.spec
http://bbbush.fedorapeople.org/xcb-util-0.3.0-1.fc9.src.rpm

I also made a spec for awesome here, but cannot build at all:

http://bbbush.fedorapeople.org/awesome.spec
http://bbbush.fedorapeople.org/awesome-3.0-1.fc9.src.rpm

Because it requires "cairo" to be compiled with "xcb" backend (may
have other restrictions, e.g. required "cmake" version is 2.6, not in
fedora 9) :(


update:
thanks to PackageKit: it prompts me "new updates available: cmake-2.6...". found that I was still using "updates" repo at yum command line, should switch to "updates-newkey" and makecache again.

and just re-compiled "cairo", enabled "xcb" switch, installed it; compiled "libev", also installed, now "awesome" can compile!

http://bbbush.fedorapeople.org/libev.spec
http://bbbush.fedorapeople.org/libev-3.43-1.fc9.src.rpm


To run it, "killall metacity && awesome" and see your window placed at random position... Actually the "awesome" window manager is not so beautiful (not fit GNOME desktop.) The layout switcher is pretty interesting, though I cannot figure out several of them. It seems "mugshot" popup will steal focus.

what a fun day!
