Description Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2007-04-18 01:08:30 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: BRL-CAD is a powerful constructive solid geometry modeler

This is the "workin progress version" i use for brlcad!
Currently it do not build because of some *** buffer overflow detected ***
See: http://kwizart.free.fr/fedora/6/testing/brlcad/build.log

It also requires tcl/tk 0.8.5 unless it build with the internal version...

tkimg (1.3 is needed, it suppose to take svn snapshoot)
openNURBS (0.4.0 wip)
Make it build with system libs

current status: not building

Comment 1 Peter Lemenkov 2007-04-18 10:30:42 UTC
> BuildRequires: xorg-x11-server-Xorg
> BuildRequires: xorg-x11-server-Xdmx

Does it really requires X-server for compiling?

Comment 2 Peter Lemenkov 2007-06-23 17:14:49 UTC
Any news?

Comment 3 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2007-06-23 21:21:09 UTC
I've tryed to compile it on F7 with a snapshot of tcl/tk 8.5 (from drpixel
testing repository) and it fails to detect tk 8.5 for now... 
I will have more time to work from next week... and i will also try to do
without X but i think that i've already tryed this but it wasn't working...

Comment 4 Peter Lemenkov 2007-10-01 10:42:02 UTC
BTW ver. 7.10.2 is out

Comment 5 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2007-10-01 12:25:02 UTC
Yes, but still in beta stage for tcl/tk 8.5...
Anyway i've made a fully functionnal version but it is mostly unstable because
of some hardcoded data path... I May start again for F-9 rawhide (with at least
tcl/tk 8.5 )

Comment 6 Peter Lemenkov 2007-11-03 20:02:23 UTC
FYI 7.10.4 is out.

Description: BRL-CAD is a powerful constructive solid geometry modeler

This is still a work in progress version... (no need anymore tcl/tk >= 8.5 )

There is a need to have fixed version of blt (may hit the repository soon), itcl
and itk (see http://bugzilla.redhat.com/372791 )

Comment 8 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2007-11-09 20:37:38 UTC
TODO list:
- Split OpenNurbs (should be Public Domain)
- Checks if files installed in /usr/share/* could be moved in /usr/share/brlcad
- Split package for server side / client side
- Verify if librt.so.19 could conflict with glibc-devel-2.6-4 (and the answears
is yes
- Fix yes/lib (come from where ?)
- Fix pkg-config (.pc.in)
- Verify license from all third parts (patent?)

So if any packager is also interested in brlcad, please warn me so we will not
do the work twice...

Comment 9 Jason Tibbitts 2008-04-30 02:30:33 UTC
Any progress here?  I personally have no interest in brl-cad, but it would be
nice to see movement on a year-old ticket.

Comment 10 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2008-04-30 08:08:06 UTC
Actually I ran into a segfault in mged that has been fixed recently!
brlcad is now in a usable state, but there is still some fix to do:
- Split OpenNurbs (if needed - no others apps are using it anyway)
- Split package for server side / client side
- Check shebang of tcl scripts. (and use tcl path if relevant).

Comment 11 Jason Tibbitts 2008-06-28 18:16:57 UTC
FYI, this didn't build for me.  Looks like something has changed in Fedora's TCL.

checking whether to build Tcl...no
checking for Tcl configuration...
configure: error: /usr/lib64 directory doesn't contain tclConfig.sh
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.78800 (%build)
    Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.78800 (%build)

Comment 12 Jason Tibbitts 2008-10-03 17:02:33 UTC
Now the srpm link in comment #10 is invalid and there's been no response in over three months.  Setting needinfo; I will close this ticket soon if there's no further response.

Comment 13 Jason Tibbitts 2008-10-10 17:20:37 UTC
No response; closing.

For anyone who'd wish to follow up on this, his latest SRPM appears to be: http://rpms.kwizart.net/fedora/9/SRPMS/brlcad-7.12.4-1.fc9.kwizart.src.rpm
