I needed at least this, didn't get the other error, probably just a BuildRequires needed (1.11 KB, patch)

Description Alex Lancaster 2008-01-09 03:23:59 EST
The current version of vtk causes broken deps because it is built against tcl
8.4, but rawhide now ships 8.5, and hence needs to be rebuilt:

here's end of failed build.log:

-- Looking for glXGetProcAddressARB in GL/glx.h - FALSE
CMake Error: This project requires some variables to be set,
and cmake can not find them.
Please set the following variables:

koji build here: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=336370

Seems that it doesn't know how to find the new Tcl.

(Also, if you didn't have ACLs on), I could help fix this, but I can't bump the
spec and rebuild.)

Additional fixes for Python eggs

The earlier patch needed an additional modification to include Python Egg
files, see:


I have added that feature, and now vtk builds correctly in rawhide, see:


Please apply this ASAP, or at least open up the ACLs so other's can build this
package.  Thanks.

To save Axel the trouble, I went ahead and committed this patch and did a build:

The only thing I changed was the Caolan's changelog line, to add the dash before
the version so the formats were consistent.
Comment 4 Alex Lancaster 2008-01-16 04:03:51 EST
Build now complete in rawhide.  Closing bug.
