Request for upgrade of fltk in EL6 to the 1.3 branch
Last modified: 2015-02-18 12:30:00 EST
Description of problem:
The latest version of fldigi dropped support for fltk releases less than 1.3 and I was planning on an EPEL branch.
Affected packages seem to be:
# repoquery --resolve --whatrequires fltk
CC'ing Nicolas, the maintainer of Pixie and aqsis, as he objected to the upgrade but did not provide any rationale.
I don't want any ABI break for EL6, that's an enough rationale.
Please try not to waste others time.
Are you saying Pixie or aqsis won't or can't work with any newer fltk? or other known problems?
Fwiw, even RHEL does tech updates breaking abi in minor releases for good reasons occasionally, rejecting doing so here without further rationale is slightly less than constructive.
Unless we plan on staying at 1.1 forever, I think it would be appropriate to update fltk for EL7.
Updating to the latest for el7 is pretty much a given imho, no need to (re)open this bug for that.
fltk is in RHEL7 it seems:
fltk.x86_64 1.3.0-13.el7 base
