Comment 2 Richard Shaw 2016-04-20 20:01:56 UTC
The problem has been corrected since the 0.15 release but the dependencies on EL6 are too old to build this (or any newer) version and the fix is not easily backported.

Freecad 0.16 will soon be released through EPEL 7 so I therefore recommend users of freecad on EL system upgrade to version 7.
