Description Andrew Bauer 2019-10-28 17:39:28 UTC
Do plan to build Remmina for EPEL 8?

Comment 1 Trevor Clark 2020-02-01 15:19:46 UTC
I remote into work computers using RDP + a smart card (yubikey) I need remmina to do that. The flatpak version doesn't  leave work with smart cards.

Comment 2 Simone Caronni 2020-02-08 13:51:05 UTC
Some dependencies have got in, but this one is missing, so it can not be built yet for RHEL/CentOS 8.


Please note that avahi-devel and the other subpackages are available for CentOS 8 in the PowerTools repository, but the Koji builders for EPEL use RHEL 8.

Comment 3 Trevor Clark 2020-04-20 00:28:00 UTC
Thanks for keeping up on this. This package is important for my use case. I am waiting for this package to update my workstation.

Comment 4 Simone Caronni 2020-05-25 06:16:01 UTC
Still no answer....

Comment 5 Andrew Bauer 2020-05-25 12:07:26 UTC
Avahi-devel is currently present in the PowerTools repo so I'm not sure the CentOS folk need to do anything.

I am able to build the netatalk package for el8, which also requires avahi-devel.

From the build:
> DEBUG util.py:602:  Running transaction
> DEBUG util.py:602:  Installed:
> DEBUG util.py:602:    NetworkManager-libnm-1:1.20.0-5.el8_1.x86_64                                  
> DEBUG util.py:602:    acl-2.2.53-1.el8.x86_64                                                       
> DEBUG util.py:602:    avahi-0.7-19.el8.x86_64                                                       
> DEBUG util.py:602:    avahi-devel-0.7-19.el8.x86_64  

What does your build output look like when you try to build remmina?

Comment 6 Andrew Bauer 2020-05-25 13:30:21 UTC
I did some testing on my end and the missing package in CentOS repo is avahi-ui-devel.

Perhaps you know that already, but may I suggest adding the adding that detail to your CentOS bug report (or make a new report to get someone's attention).

Comment 7 Andrew Bauer 2020-06-03 13:14:53 UTC
I have emailed the person assigned to CentOS bug 17235. Let's hope this gets some movement on the issue.

Comment 8 Andrew Bauer 2020-06-03 13:16:44 UTC
Disregard the link in the previous message. Rehat bugzilla thought I was referring to a redhat bug.

The real link is here:

Comment 9 Andreas Luik 2021-09-29 13:43:05 UTC
Is anybody working on this again?  The blocking issue mentioned above about missing avahi-ui-devel package should not exist anymore:

yum list avahi-ui-devel
Available Packages
avahi-ui-devel.i686                     0.7-20.el8                    powertools
avahi-ui-devel.x86_64                   0.7-20.el8                    powertools

Comment 10 Simone Caronni 2021-09-30 05:42:40 UTC
Thanks for spotting, I will take care.

Comment 11 Simone Caronni 2021-10-01 05:39:20 UTC
Not enough unfortunately:

DEBUG util.py:444:  No matching package to install: 'pkgconfig(gtk-vnc-2.0)'
DEBUG util.py:444:  Not all dependencies satisfied
DEBUG util.py:444:  Error: Some packages could not be found.
DEBUG util.py:598:  Child return code was: 1


Comment 12 Andreas Luik 2021-10-01 09:04:56 UTC
OK - the gtk-vnc2-devel package is missing in RHEL 8.  I created a request for it: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2009671, but of course I do not know whether/when this will be done.

Comment 13 Simone Caronni 2021-10-03 07:25:06 UTC
Never probably. Tried an attempt also on epel-next, same issue.
