      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

I dont need it, but maybe others would enjoy an rpm of freedesktop.org xserver?

 

 

great minds think alike!

Amen

 

I know this is gonna sound funny. But if we someone just updated the XMLTV to the latest version, you'd be able to install all of mythtv without any configuration (just finetuning and the database). Which one be nice because mythtv cannot be installed via urpmi at the moment. I checked their site but their all just Red Hat RPMS.

 

Also, maybe a rpm for the most recent firefox? (0.9)

 

Hmm... Also NVU would be a nice rpm, alot of people are using that editor now, including me. And I think it deserves its nice little own rpm.

just wanted to say, that I'm still working on building grass if it hasn't been built by anyone else ...already, but I'm having some problems building lapack-library at the moment. It's crashing during the compile and am informing about it ...

You know what I want?

The newest rpm version of Mozilla, Firefox, and Thunderbird that works in Mandrake 10.

I have tried cooker and it requires a glibc update (not a good idea). Tried PCLOS one and it doesn't work.

my apologies, this project has fallen to the wayside due to time constraints.

I don't know how popular GIS software is among users, but I for one, find them tremendously useful.

 

I would love to see Quantum GIS (http://qgis.sf.net/) in an RPM format. The current versions is 0.2, and I have yet to find an RPM for Mandrake (there is a SuSE one I believe). The use for this is probably towards academians or people seriously using GIS in another field.

 

qgis crashed for me under 10.0, but it works on cooker/10.1, and it is now in contrib (version 0.4).

 

Another application on the same lines is GRASS (http://grass.baylor.edu//), a complete GIS package first developed by the US Military. It is GPL'ed and has an installer (.sh script), but still, an RPM would be nice. There is one for the stable version (5.0) but the current development version is 5.7 if I recall well. The interesting thing is, GRASS is text-based, while QGIS (see above) has created a plugin to introduce a GUI to the application that is much more professional and efficient.

 

These are the RPMs I am looking for around the internet and could not find yet. If you would be so kind to create them, I would be grateful.

 

The problem on 10.0 was that an updated gdal was needed to build grass57, which changed the minor number of the library, but not that of the rpm, and resulted in file conflicts. Updating gdal would require rebuilding all other apps that require gdal. I didn't want to push this to community contrib, but thac did rebuild the packages on 10.0.

 

10.1/cooker currently has grass-5.0.3, gras53-5.3.0, and grass57-5.7.0 though.

 

Grass isn't only text based, there is the tck/tk gui ...

 

Anyway, AFAIK, we're the only distro with all 3 (grass, grass53, grass57), as we were also the first with grass (5.0.x).
