rebuilding 0.11.2 on 7.3 (47.70 KB, text/plain)

Description Charles Kerr 2002-03-25 17:20:08 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020315

Description of problem:
It looks like the version of Pan shipping with slipjack
is still 0.9.7, which is almost a year old.

I'd like to request (plead?) that this be upgraded to
Pan 0.11.2, which much more stable than 0.9.7.  IMO 0.11.2
is the best choice for bundling with a stable, non-beta distro.

I'm constantly getting bug reports against 0.9.7 users
from RH.  0.11.2 has been out for about two months now
and has no major/repeatable bug reports.  Make my life
easier and upgrade away from 0.9.7 in the next RH release. :)

Tarballs and RH7.2 RPMs can be found at http://pan.rebelbase.com/download/0.11.2/


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start pan
2. go to Help|About
3. look at the version number

Actual Results:  0.9.7 was displayed.

Expected Results:  0.11.2 should have been displayed. ;)

Bill:  Excuse me for being presumptuous in marking this
bug as assigned to you, but havill got the mail from bugzilla
when I filed this bug, and he says you're the person I
should be talking to you, so I wanted to make sure you were
in the loop.

Agree with Charles here, a more current version of pan is warranted because there have been many good feature enhancements and bugfixes, as well as 
performance improvements.  0.9.7 is quite out of date.
Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-04-04 00:20:28 EST
Please update Pan from the RAWHIDE destribution, to at least version 0.11.2, 
since it is impossible to post to newsgroups with the shipped version, without 
pan crashing..

Yes.I started to maintianenc 2 week ago.

Now 0.11.1 has been rebuilt for 7.3 in rawhide.

I met some troubles when rebuilt 0.11.2 for 7.3.
Comment 6 Charles Kerr 2002-04-04 02:35:30 EST
What problem did you encounter when building 0.11.2 for 7.3?
I'll try to fix it for you.
Should I try to build on Skipjack?

The rebuilding log is attached.
It is appreciated if you can help to rebuild 0.11.2 on 7.3.
Comment 9 Charles Kerr 2002-04-05 18:19:06 EST
I just finished downloading the last skipjack last
night, and now there's another release.. :)

I'll redownload & try to get Pan building on
skipjack beta 2 this weekend.

Comment 11 Need Real Name 2002-04-05 19:14:39 EST

I'm one of the Pan developers and I've done a bit of work on the spec file. I
think I know what's going on here.

Basically, I suspect you are now building with the spec file contained in Pan's
tarball, whereas before RedHat used their own spec file.  Perhaps you can find
out which spec file was used for the 0.11.1 in RawHide ?

I think you can get Pan's spec file to work by removing the following line:

    cp /usr/share/gettext/po/Makefile.in.in po

This line is there for historic reasons: it made sure that, when building the
rpm, we got the version of Makefile.in.in that came with gettext 0.10.35 (or
later). We copied it in, just in case the tarball packager didn't have that
version yet. We needed that version, because it supports DESTDIR, which we need
to copy the translation files during install. I never really liked that
solution, and now I remember why. :-)

The problem you're seeing is that Skipjack uses gettext 0.11. The Makefile.in.in
in that version seems to be different, in that it doesn't directly define the
variable 'top_builddir' (it seems to get pulled in from po/Makevars, but I
haven't had time to investigate that).  

If you remove that copy from the spec, you can just build with the included
Makefile.in.in, and the build should proceed fine.  Alternatively, you can
switch to RH's own spec file for Pan.

Hope this helps,

Christophe:Thanks for your advice.Now I switch to RH's spec file for pan and the
building is passed.
