Description Paul DeStefano 2016-02-07 22:33:31 UTC
Description of problem:
Update Request.
I was just going to ask for  an upgrade since 7.6.x supports open-source OCL drivers (eg. Mesa) and current version 7.2.42 doesn't.  But, I also just found out that 7.2.x doesn't support GCC 6, so rebuilding with 7.6 is probably necessary before F24 freezes.

Comment 1 Paul DeStefano 2016-02-08 04:49:41 UTC
Aside from the GCC 6 dependency, which is firm, there are two other fixes in other packages that are related to this requrest.  Please let me know if I should open separate bugs/requests for them.

1) 7.6 BOINC manager requires wxWidgets 3.0.1, so that pkg will also need an update.

2) libclc has a bug tickled by at least one BOINC project's application.  A patch exists and has been tested.  This package also needs to be updated in order to achieve proper OCL support (for OSS drivers) as I'm requesting.

Comment 2 Germano Massullo 2016-02-08 08:43:33 UTC
As far I can see from BOINC website, the lastest Linux stable version is still 7.2.42, so we need to wait for 7.6 becoming stable

Comment 3 Paul DeStefano 2016-02-08 19:21:35 UTC
Yes, I know what you mean.  But, I talked to the BOINC "help desk" people and knowledgeable testers on the forums and they said that the only reason they haven't updated the package on their download page is because wxWidgets needs a patch (not just v3.0.1 as I stated before) and not many distributions have incorporated the patch, yet.  They are suggesting that they would wait until the patch hits the distributions before making a new package...but, I'm sure you don't want to wait because:

1) AFAIK, 7.6 is stable.  There isn't anything wrong with the Linux "version" of 7.4 or 7.6; that's not why they haven't build a new package.  They're only holding back from posting a new package because dependencies wouldn't be met in many distributions, including Fedora.

2) Moreover, 7.2.x *will not build with GCC 6.*  The BOINC guys also told me that they know F24 is going to come with GCC 6--they must be keeping an eye on Fedora or else how would they know that.

I'm hoping we can get all four of these packages updated soon, but I mainly want to make sure that these updates make it in to F24, at the latest, since, as I understand it, F24 will require going to 7.6.

I'm sure I can get patches for wxWidgets and libclc.  I was going to try to use SRPMS of all them, make them work, and send you some patches.  I'm sure you could do it faster and better, but I'm willing to help out if you want.

Do you mean the package wxGTK3? Does upstream wxWidgets developers made a new release that includes the patch?

Comment 5 Paul DeStefano 2016-02-15 19:33:04 UTC
Sorry, I was away last week...

I'm not sure; perhaps it is the GTK3 pkg.  BOINC folks said "wxWidgets", so I can't be sure.  I see your point; it's probably not a problem with wxBase.  I'll work on getting you all the details I can.  More soon.
