F7 needs Alpine version bump to .99999
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:22 EST
Description of problem: Need a build of Alpine .99999 for F7.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): .9999
Steps to Reproduce:
Additional info: Alpine is stuck at .9999 for F7, but needs a bump to fix
problems, such as no spell checking. New release is .99999 and has been released
for F8 and F9. Any chance for a quick compile on Koji?
I'm the one who built it in the first place for F-7, so I'll take care of this.
Still trying to decide whether to push it to updates-released, since F-8 now
has it mainline.
jima, "just do it" (c). :)
I am still trying to figure out how to get the Spell checker to work. By
default, it doesn't. Others on the 'net are reporting the same thing, even with
Oh, and do push it to updates-released. Despite the spell-check problem, it
I just requested it be pushed to updates-testing. (We'll decide where to move
from there.) I wonder if the spell check issue might be a missing dependency?
Other repos are having the same problem, it could very well be. But I don't
know how to file a bug with Alpine users directly.
alpine-0.99999-2.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update alpine'
I will reopen this ticket on account of the fact that the spell-checker doesn't
work. Hitting control-T to spellcheck leaves a file in the /tmp directory, but
does not do anything. Linking to aspell doesn't work, it gives an error message.
Sorry, I didn't realize you'd done the Fedora 7 branch or I would have updated
The spell check works for me, though I do see the pico tmp files left around.
The configure invocation in the spec file needs updating to
"--with-simple-spellcheck=aspell". This fixed it for me.(In reply to comment #8)

Real (comment #10): SOmething needs to be put in pine.conf to get it fixed,
though. By default, it won't go. And yes, the files left behind are a security
pine.conf should have (something like):
speller=aspell --mode=email -c
I cannot reproduce anything other than the leftover pico tmp file
(which is a bug that I will report upstream).
Here is what works for me:
I have Fedora's alpine-0.99999-2 installed and aspell.
I start alpine and go to compose, then type "grean" or
any misspelled word and ctrl-T and aspell comes up normally.
This works with no pine.conf or .pinerc, or with my own .pinerc.
Do you perhaps have a different "speller=" line left over from
an old install? If not can you provide your installation details
and what you see?
For me, if no pine conf file contains speller=... I get an error when pressing ^T:
Spell-checking file "" not found
That is what I am seeing also. If I have:
Then I get that error.
Gilbert, can you file a new bug repot about that please (strictly speaking it's
Feel free to close this one, and put all follow-ups on the new bug report.
