Description François Cami 2008-12-11 17:42:17 EST
Description of problem:
wings does not start in fc10.
this is due to a missing parameter in the /usr/bin/wings script.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
on a dualcore x86_64 PC :
1. # yum -y install wings
2. $ wings
Actual results:
$ wings
erlexec: Error 2 executing '/usr/lib64/wings/bin/beam.smp'.

Expected results:
wings window appear...

Additional info:
The correct executable is beam, not beam.smp .
This is due to a missing parameter in the /usr/bin/wings script, documented in the original sources, see wings-0.99.02/unix/install_wings.src .

The attached patch fixes the spec file and makes wings run again.

patch to fix the spec file
Comment 2 Gérard Milmeister 2008-12-12 01:58:50 EST
This is strange.
The spec file already has

exec \$BINDIR/erlexec -smpdisable -noinput -run wings_start start_halt \$*
Comment 3 François Cami 2008-12-12 02:12:20 EST
wings has not been rebuilt for F10 with this fix, see Koji :

I've just rebuilt wings-0.99.05-2.fc9 on my F10 box and it works just fine.

Could you please rebuild for F10 and push ?

Comment 4 François Cami 2008-12-12 15:29:28 EST
