sdcc 2.8.0's sdccman.lyx fails with 1.6.0rc3
Last modified: 2008-10-28 11:43:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://konradm.fedorapeople.org/sdccman.lyx
2. lyx -e text sdccman.lyx
Error from iconv!
http://www.lyx.org/trac/changeset/26412 fixes the problem (I hope).
I do not see the error from iconv instead we hit an assert in the code. This is running rc2 in F-9 and rawhide.
The problem is fixed in the latest svn version, so it should be fixed with rc3 (soon to come).
How soon? I think a new build of sdcc is needed for f10-beta, and new builds are blocked until this gets fixed.
Otherwise, Conrad found the upstream commit that should fix this, I gave him our blessing to do a patched lyx build in the meantime.

In less than a week. It depends also on how busy I am. :-)

Actually although I did not said that on the previous message I think that the guess is wrong. :-)
There are two issues involved and none is related with that patch. :-)
If a new lyx version is to be built I would suggest to package the current svn version as it works OK and it has several minor problems solved after rc2. My recommendation is done using the hat of (lyx) release manager.
The only difference between the current state and rc3 other than small fixes will be on translations.
Still fails with rc3, but differenly.
José, if you get a chance, can you take a peek?
I suppose it would be helpful to push this bug upstream, eh? :)
OK, I have pushed a fix while discussing this at lyx devel list.
Meanwhile I have ignored lyx warnings and I make the pdf using lyx, there is no need to do it by hand (and it was failing for me).
I noticed the fix -- thanks. I'm glad to have sdcc 2.8.0 building.
Is this fixed now (can we close it)?
The problem at hand was fixed.
It would be interesting to push upstream both patches. Although the "|| echo ..." part is not needed anymore as the bug that triggered that scenario has been fixed and the fix is already present in lyx-1.6.0 rc4.
Great, thanks. Closing.
