Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
About the "externals", what I do in my things is that I arrange to "capture" the used options / flags when the package is concretely build. I deposit the infos in some textual ".save" file. I arrange to have the ".save" files in the distrib and then the xxx-config uses that.
The idea is that if the builder / installer had been able to "do the job" of finding the right options then no need to have the xxx-config guessing things again. This is not so easy to put in place, but for the moment things seem to work for me. (And I handle in this way Qt, gtk, Motif, OpenGL).
In the case of G4, someone may think that "all is in the config/*gmk" and that the xxx-config should arrange to use this info. But one problem may be that the installer, according its platform, may not have things "as in the default in the config/*gmk", and by capturing what is concretely done, you can bypass this problem.
Anyway, it is fine that this problem is addressed. (I need that to build my OpenScientist G4Lab package).
