Hi, I've packaged openCOLLADA for openSUSE with sonames etc and using
them to build blender If you want to take the easy route, that's what
opensource is about, have a look at :
you will find tarballs patches etc under "Source Files", it will be in 11.4.
The patch "openCOLLADA-assign_value.patch" doesn't apply to svn 779,
I've yet to find out why. It wasn't made by me it was made by another
more experienced person whom I asked to check the package over.
"COLLADA-linuxbuild.patch" will be submitted to openCOLLADA, I've
already given them one to enable lib directory name ie. /lib /lib64.
You should check out the build service you can use it to build for
Ubuntu/Debian as well, in which case you could simply use "osc copypac"
command and work from there.
