Building plugins outside the vdr source tree with the new Makefile is
something I bear with the "current mess".
I'm no Makefile-guru, so I have to "live with it" and I can't contribute to
this thing at all.
My personal development environment is a "vdr source tree with plugins".
If I do development on a vdr-patch, I just call "make" and have the output
(and errors/warnings) of the compiler right
If I work on a plugin I have a separate shell in the plugin's directory where
I call "make". If it's ready for testing,
I call "make all plugins" from the vdr directory. In the directory above ("..")
I have a script which starts the current
vdr with the settings for my development (other config directory etc.).
Now a "make" compiles everything and I have to scroll a lot to get the
warnings or errors.
Perhaps we should talk about what targets are needed and what they should do.
"Never touch a running system" only
applies to productive environments, not for development. Without touching there
would be no progress.
So please stop "whining" and let's do some work together!
