Description of problem:
toolbar application cannot be started because it requires another erlang application - gs, which is not built. gs uses tcl, and it looks like that build environment doesn't have tcl-devel installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start erlang shell (erl)
2.try to start toolbar application - toolbar:start().
Actual Results: error description displayed
Expected Results: New toolbar window with buttons should pop up.
A new build is in the making.
Close this bug if it works as expected.
The erlang-R10B-6.4 i386 version (downloaded Oct 5) also seems to have a similar
problem. It is missing the compiled versions of gs, gstk and various source
(.erl) files. It is also missing the java_src for the idl compiler (ic), the
java source for jinterface, a couple of files from the orber (examples for java
access) and several files from the ssl-3.0.7 library. It looks like the compile
failed because there is a crash.dump file which got included in the binary.rpm.
The date on this file is Oct 1 at 3:37.
If I compile from the source rpm it seems to compile ok, gs seems to work fine
(limited testing, but at least windows popup).
Currently the package is broken (probably due to a change
to the build requirement packages).
I will soon request a build for the new version R10B-8 and
then post the results.
I enabled building using java, but unfortunately this created havoc
on the build system. Building locally in mock creates a working
package however. At least "toolbar:start()." works as expected and
there is not erl_crash.dump. Two jar files are created:
It would be useful if you checked out from CVS and tried
a build yourself.
However at the moment no java-enabled build can be requested.
Created attachment 121471 [details]
erlang itself was not installed at the time of the build.
I returned to this after I upgraded my computer to fedora development.
erlang-R10B-8.3.x86_64.rpm from the development repo still has the same problem
- gs was not built. I re-built rpm from the source rpm and it came out allright.
I attached list of rpms I had installed at the time of the build (My rpms). It
is almost exclusively fedora-development system with one notable exclusion -
kernel is from fedora 4.
Seems to work with current release.
