Description Solomon Peachy 2016-03-04 07:40:42 EST
Description of problem:

Geeqie on Fedora 23 does not properly high-res thumbnails of NEF images.  This is a regression from Fedora 22.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Point Geeqie at an NEF image
2. Marvel at the 160x120 thumbnail preview instead of the high-res one.

Additional info:

The underlying problem is that the exiv2's expectation of the 'path' component of a filename to have the same lifetime as the object that references it, but geeqie was freeing it too early.

This just-committed upstream patch resolves the problem:


It would be nice for Fedora to carry this patch until upstream's next full release.  :)

Can you check if the rawhide version works for you?
I made a scratch build in http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=13229311 for F23, you should be able to install that without dependency issues.
Comment 2 Solomon Peachy 2016-03-04 19:25:23 EST
The scratch build works great on F23, thanks for turning that around so quickly!
Comment 3 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2016-03-04 20:31:06 EST
OK, then I'll push this version to F23 too. When we update to the next version we'll switch to the upstream patch.
