Updating lxmusic

Post by w0rp »

Hello! Does anyone know who I can contact for creating a pull request (or otherwise submit code for review) for lxmusic, and for getting a new version published? I have at least one change I'd like to make. I use KDE these days, but I use lxmusic all the time, which has been my favorite music player GUI for years.

Updating lxmusic

Post by bennieKig »

Does anyone have any advice on updating gcc versions from 4.9 to 7.3? I have tried but I am getting some errors during make. I was hoping that someone has at least updated past 4.9 to a newer version and perhaps I can outline what I am doing. 4.9 is pretty good. Covers c11 and a few features from c14 and c17 but it would be nice to take advantage of some newer features that I already use in other projects.

you aren't even telling us which distro you're using...
maybe your OS has an option to install multiple compilers side by side, but i wouldn't remove the one that comes with the distro.
maybe it's time to upgrade your OS.
