Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1297212
wcslib 5.14 is available
Last modified: 2016-04-19 18:32:27 EDT
wcslib 5.12 is available for some weeks now. As this supports WCS distortion functions and much more, it would be nice to see it in future Fedora releases :) Thank you very much in advance. Also: Feel free to ask me if you need any help!
We need the list of affected packages
dnf repoquery --whatrequires 'libwcs.so.4()(64bit)'
So this means cpl, kstars and python-astropy. May be others?
astropy supports wcslib5. I don't know about the others.
I don't know any other packages with wcslib as a dep. I'll have a look at KStars as I'm also comaintaining it. Don't know about cpl.
http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/lupinix/wcslib5-test/builds/ I rebuilt depending Rawhide packages without modification. Not yet completed.
astropy failed (test), known issue: https://github.com/astropy/astropy/issues/4460
I would wait until this problem is fixed upstream
I agree with you
Patch available: https://github.com/astropy/astropy/pull/4492/ (already exported as text: https://lupinix.fedorapeople.org/python-astropy-fix-wcs5.patch )
Tested in build https://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/lupinix/wcslib5-test/build/153475/
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
We should switch to wcslib 5.14 soon @Rawhide and Fedora 24 as astropy stopped supporting the old wcslib 4.x starting with astropy 1.1.2. I got everything up and running: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/lupinix/wcslib5-test/
Contains a build of wcslib 5.14, astropy 1.1.2 and rebuilds of other depending packages (cpl and kstars). For astropy a patch is needed which marks some tests as failing. This is related to an issue in numpy prerelease in 24 and rawhide.
You find the patch for astropy 1.1.2 in attachment, I've taken it from Debian.
