Can I Compile a program from source?
« on: December 05, 2010, 03:23:22 PM »
I'm a Newb. I need a program that isn't in the repositories. "wvdial" When I used to use DSL i remember compiling programs from source code. Can I do this on Tiny Core? What applications in the repositories do I need?

Regards

It is a good idea to make a wvdial extension. This will help others using dial up. The reason it has not been done already, is because none of the team uses dial up, and have no way of testing it.
Many people see what is. Some people see what can be, and make a difference.
