Unpaid Help Wanted: As of this instant, I’m going to try to compile the Second Life viewer for the first time. I don’t know if my attention span, interest level, etc. is up to this task. It would be a lot easier, as well as a lot more fun, to do this with some realtime help: If anyone is willing to offer realtime answers to questions on this subject please contact me. Thanks.
I have found one source of realtime help with this task, at the opensl IRC channel. However, the more help the merrier.
I have always use totally integrated development environments like Delphi in my programming dabbling in the past and thus have no experience with make files, command line compiling, fixing up hundreds of problems in the source due to version incompatibilities, etc.
