Description Jeff Layton 2014-07-20 13:10:42 UTC
The quake3 package hasn't had an update from upstream since 2011. It's currently broken on f20 (see bug 1018398). Could we get an update to a newer release?

I'm willing to do the updating, if you can grant me commit access to the package.
I've built an "alpha" package here:


...but I think it needs a little work. One problem is that there are two renderers now built with ioquake3 that are built as shared libs. We need to decide a place to put those so that all the games can find them. This may require pushing a patch upstream to the ioquake3 project.

I can help by debugging the new package.

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:

Please close this bug as it is resolved.

Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2015-12-04 09:25:46 UTC

So the problem with building with -fstack-protector=all which caused ioquake3 to fail has been fixed,
which is what this bug seems to be really about so I'm closing it.

As for upgrading to a newer upstream release. There is no such thing as upstream is not actually doing releases AFAICT, I've filed a bug with upstream asking them to at least do git-tags which downstream distributors can then use as officially blessed moments in ioquake3's development when it is good to build binaries, see:
