Subject Re: help with forrest installation on freebsd with Java pre-installed
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2005 14:43:06 GMT
hello, thank you very much... 

it remains a doubt in my mind, if Forrest does not use make and friends, why 
freebsd has a port for this application?

here is what i did.., i have found a port for FreeBSD, i guess it fits 
better to the system...

I deactivated the enviroment variable JAVA_HOME by
#unsetenv JAVA_HOME

I guess the only thing i have to do is to set back the variable.. by #setenv 
JAVA_HOME /path/to/java

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 4 seconds

*************************************************************************

Set the environment variable:

FORREST_HOME=/usr/local/share/apache-forrest

and add ${FORREST_HOME}/bin to your PATH.

To build a site:

1) $ mkdir mysite; cd mysite
2) $ forrest seed
3) $ forrest
4) see results in ./build/site/index.html with your web browser

To avoid any issue with old classes being loaded, run a 'forrest clean'
in your project directory, after you upgraded to this version (0.7)

*************************************************************************
===> Registering installation for apache-forrest-0.7
