Enhancement request: perl-Gtk2
Last modified: 2013-11-08 12:58:40 EST
Description of problem:
The current version of perl-Gtk2 is severely outdated - currently years out of date. It is missing a great deal of bug fixes and improvements.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Please consider updating to a newer version. Newer versions bring a great deal of bug fixes and improvements. Fedora currently has perl-Gtk2-1.247-1, which is considered stable. I do realize the EPEL series isn't meant for latest and greatest.
perl-Glib-1.280-4.el6,perl-Gtk2-1.248-1.el6 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 6.
Package perl-Glib-1.280-4.el6, perl-Gtk2-1.248-1.el6:
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=epel-testing perl-Glib-1.280-4.el6 perl-Gtk2-1.248-1.el6'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
Further testing shows this build may be missing some files. For example, this build should have Gtk2::Spinner, but it doesn't:
[dave@centos ~]$ perl -MGtk2=-init -E 'my $a = Gtk2::Spinner->new'
Can't locate object method "new" via package "Gtk2::Spinner" (perhaps you forgot to load "Gtk2::Spinner"?) at -e line 1.
rpm -ql perl-Gtk2 |grep -i spinner
The build logs show that this build "provides" Gtk2::Spinner, but I'm unable to use it. I'm going to compare spec files from this and the Fedora builds and see if something is different.
Can anyone verify this?
perl-Glib-1.280-4.el6, perl-Gtk2-1.248-1.el6 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
