Description Sebastian Dziallas 2008-05-12 18:06:29 UTC
The Education SIG plans to produce a Live CD spin dealing with mathematical
applications. We would like to include those packages from kdeedu related to
mathematics, but we are running into space problems when including the whole
kdeedu package. Could you please consider to split kdeedu up, so that we can
include these applications in the spin?

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-05-12 18:19:42 UTC
Which ones again?  kig, kalgebra, kmplot?

Comment 2 Sebastian Dziallas 2008-05-12 18:28:28 UTC
At least kig, kalgebra and kmplot, but there are also kbruch and kpercentage.
Then, we would get the whole bunch of kdeedu apps related to mathematics.

Comment 3 Steven M. Parrish 2008-05-22 23:32:50 UTC
I think this is a good idea so I went ahead and created a new SPEC for a kdemath
package which includes kig, kalgebra, kmplot, kbruch and kpercentage.  The SPEC
file can be found here http://tuxbrewr.fedorapeople.org/kdemath.spec and is
based on the current kdeedu SPEC file.  The SRPM can be found here
http://tuxbrewr.fedorapeople.org/kdemath-4.0.4-1.fc9.src.rpm  New package built
successfully on all archs.  Build log is here
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=625395.  Added info to this
bugreport for you to look at 1st rex and kevin and decide if its good. If so
will submit an official package request.

Comment 4 Steven M. Parrish 2008-05-23 01:26:35 UTC
I set it so this package conflicts with kdeedu to inhibit installation on
systems where kdeedu is already installed.

Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-23 01:38:47 UTC
Well, we really don't want another package built from the kdeedu sources and 
conflicting with kdeedu, this should be built as a subpackage of kdeedu.

Comment 6 Steven M. Parrish 2008-05-26 19:33:22 UTC
Your right a subpackage is a better idea so here is a modified kdeedu specfile.

everything built with no errors on both F9 and F10

Comment 7 Sebastian Dziallas 2008-06-06 17:35:22 UTC
I just wanted to ask, whether I may help somehow. Is there already a review in
progress or is there anything I might do?

Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2008-06-06 17:55:17 UTC
we haven't forgotten.  Still pondering our options.

fwiw, here's an irc snippet from #fedora-kde today:
[12:43] <SMParrish> rdieter: 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=446093 just showed up in my inbox 
again.  Has this been discussed at all?
[12:45] <rdieter> SMParrish: a little, no action taken yet.  Looks good 
[12:48] <SMParrish> kk will post an update that its still pending and not 
[12:49] <rdieter> I'm still debating whether to keep it like that -math group, 
or split each app individually.
[12:50] <SMParrish> well if you are leaning towards a seperate package for 
each app would suggest it be done for all apps in kdedeu not just the math 
ones to make it consistent
[12:51] <rdieter> yup

Comment 9 Than Ngo 2008-06-10 16:38:48 UTC
it's bad idea to seperate package for each app. It's fine to split it 
into -math but no go for "seperate package for each app"!

Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2008-06-26 14:07:21 UTC
Alrighty, discussed in a recent kde-sig meeting, and we compromised with the
proposed -math split.  I'll get to work on that.

Comment 11 Rex Dieter 2008-06-26 20:57:43 UTC
* Thu Jun 26 2008 Rex Dieter <rdieter> 4.0.83-2
- %description: update for new apps
- -math subpkg (#446093)
- -devel: omit a few lib*.so symlinks for those with non-public apis
- -devel: move designer plugins here
