Description of problem:
Thermostat does not build in rawhide since the netty package has been updated to version 4.x. First, the spec needs to get fixed to use osgi(io.netty.*) style requires/buildrequires. The old org.jboss.* symbolic names have been removed with this update. Second, thermostat needs to get patched so as to work with newest netty.
See also bug 1052047.
As a short term resolution we decided to introduce netty3 compat package since other packages were hard to move to netty 4. If you want to use it - once it'll be built - you need to change the version of netty you require to "3".
FYI: I've built thermostat in rawhide against netty3 for the time being. That allows me to make progress on bug 1054396. Jon, it would still be great to get thermostat working with netty 4 before F21 is out. Do you think that would be doable?
From the brief look I took a while back, should be doable. I'll get on that upstream next week. (I'd rather not maintain such a thing here in Fedora-land with patches).
Jon, what's the status of this?
Hmmm, have to shake the cobwebs off.
I had a couple patches kicking around that moved upstream part of the way towards using updated netty, but other things apparently came up and I haven't touched in a while. They don't seem to apply cleanly to HEAD :/
I'll prioritize this so that the "short term resolution" doesn't need to continue. Looking at what I had so far there's still some tricky refactoring to do, but should be able to work something out in time to drop compat package (assuming no others need it) in next Fedora.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
