Hi again all,

Today I used the todays cvs version of cmake build fresh (I like the  
new colours in the output!),
as suggested to me by Glen Lehmann at atami.com

new CVS today build of ccmake
new CVS tree of VTK
gcc compilers  -fast
python on (python2.4 universal)
shared on
carbon on , cocoa off, x11 off

and I still get the many many undefined symbols when linking  
Graphics, as i did with Cmake 2.4 patch 2

Is anyone doing nightly builds of VTK on OSX 10.4 on an intel powered  
I see none on the dashboards...?
Also why no carbon builds on thee dashboards? The machines are in the  
list, but no results submitted?

Does anyone  have any more ideas why I'm getting undefined symbols in
