Description Javier Jardón (reporter) 2009-08-24 02:04:44 UTC
Automake 1.11 supports Linux-kernel like silent build rules with easy ways to
switch to the more verbose output either at configure time:

  ./configure --disable-silent-rules

or at make time:

  make V=1

The attached patch enables silent build rules by default.

Problem here is that Fremantle does not provide automake1.11
Comment 3 Javier Jardón (reporter) 2009-11-03 20:15:50 UTC
Hello Sergio,

note that the macro is compatible with earlier automake versions too.
The line just being ignored if you have automake < 1.11

Sure I know. I was just saying that it's a pity that we won't get any clear
advantage in Maemo builds. Anyway the patch seems interesting for the future.

Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).

Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
