Description Ben Konrath 2017-01-24 07:55:48 UTC
There's no epel7 component for flatpak so I've made this request against rawhide.

I've managed to build and install flatpak-0.8.1-1.fc26 on CentOS 7.3. Here's how I did it:

* Build and install json-glib-1.2.2-1.fc26. Flatpak doesn't compile with the version included with CentOS / RHEL 7.3 (json-glib-1.0.2-1.el7). I'm not sure how to deal with this since json-glib is included in the base distro which means an updated version shouldn't be included in epel.

* Build and install ostree-2016.15-1.fc26

* Install bubblewrap-0.1.7-1.el7 from epel-testing:

* Change minimum kernel version in the flatpak spec to 3.10.0-514.2.2 (the version shipped with CentOS / RHEL 7.3).

I'm able to install and run flatpak apps with the version I've built.

I have a COPR for testing:


A newer json-glib is not required with the latest flatpak (0.8.1).

Comment 2 Ben Konrath 2017-01-24 09:24:08 UTC
Ok, great. I initially built flatpak 0.8.0 which didn't compile with json-glib-1.0.2-1.el7. I'm looking forward to seeing this in epel.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.

Comment 4 Alexander Korsunsky 2017-10-08 11:53:29 UTC
Hi, is there any news on moving this package to EPEL 7? I would quite like to see flatpak support in CentOS.

Also, why is it reported against Fedora 26 instead of Fedora EPEL? Would it be better there?

Comment 5 David King 2017-10-08 11:57:42 UTC
flatpak is now in RHEL7, so will not be added to EPEL7. The COPR that I maintain still has the most recent version (rather than the most recent version from the stable branch, in RHEL).
