Notes on compiling LyX from Subversion
What I did in order to be able to compile LyX from SVN.
The machine is RHEL release 4 (update 5).
Note that if you wish to commit, you should use the following command instead:
cd /nobackup/chr svn co svn://svn.lyx.org/lyx/lyx-devel/trunk lyx-devel
Sheesh, I get the error:
Wait a long time... started at 15:27. Make ended before 16:07.
Sigh... takes a long time.
Installs to /nobackup/chr/
Note that someone changed 'gmake' and 'gmake install' to 'make' and 'make install' without commenting, maybe indicating that that was what worked for him.
Sigh... it gives me a too recent version of automake. Giving up on this.
This is with a almost fresh installation of Ubuntu 7.04. The instructions below should hopefully work, but were not verified on a completely fresh system. (These instructions worked for me on Ubuntu 8.04 also).
sudo apt-get install build-essential libqt4-dev gettext sudo apt-get install libc6-dev # This may already have been installed sudo apt-get install automake # This may already have been installed

This is with a almost fresh installation of Ubuntu 8.10.
sudo apt-get install build-essential subversion libqt4-dev gettext automake
My freshly compiled LyX doesn't find the classes it should find.
Here's a partial work around for locally installed classes:
