WRE on Ubuntu Karmic AMD64: patch

This patch file allows the WRE source to be built on a 64-bit Ubuntu system (tested under Karmic). Instructions for use:

  1. Get the wrebuild source and unarchive
  2. Put the patch file in wrebuild directory with the script
  3. Patch the file (patch -p1 < build.ia64.diff)
  4. Follow instructions for building WRE as found in wiki -- WRE-Building

Knowmad made a patch for Hardy Heron earlier.

System Requirements

You'll need to install the following Ubuntu libraries:

  • build-essential
  • ncurses-dev
  • libperl-dev
Release Notes for Version 1 (3/23/2010)

Note: I compiled the WRE because I needed to install the XML::LibXML library. If you need to install this library too, you should know that the build script installs the libxml2 header files here:


You should install XML::LibXML by hand like so and point the Makefile.PL to the header files:

perl Makefile.PL INC='-I/data/wre/prereqs/include/libxml2'
