grass fails to install on fc26
Last modified: 2018-01-28 10:42:38 EST
Description of problem: grass-7.0.4-7.fc26.x86_64 will not install
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 7.0.4-7
How reproducible: sudo dnf install grass --allowerasing
Steps to Reproduce:
1. sudo dnf install grass
2. sudo dnf install grass --allowerasing
error: Failed dependencies:
libboost_program_options.so.1.60.0()(64bit) is needed by grass-7.0.4-7.fc26.x86_64
libboost_system.so.1.60.0()(64bit) is needed by grass-7.0.4-7.fc26.x86_64
libboost_thread.so.1.60.0()(64bit) is needed by grass-7.0.4-7.fc26.x86_64
Expected results: installs
Additional info: see also bug #1409006 Comment #4
The problem appears to be that boost is at version 63 while this version of grass insists on version 60 and does not allow higher versions. For example, FC24 includes boost-program-options-1.63.0-5.fc26.x86_64
Workaround is to download grass and force-install using rpm -ivh --nodeps grass-7.0.4-7.fc26.x86_64
FYI - I made a GRASS GIS 7.2 package here with updated SPEC file:
It does not show the problem reported above.
Likely addressed in bug #1492350
A new GRASS GIS SPEC file is available:
I have built and tested a binary package on COPR:
Tested on EPEL, F26 and F27.
New GRASS GIS 7.4.0 RPM submitted for review in bug #1539116 which solves this bug.
