Description Mattia Verga 2012-03-02 20:02:36 UTC
Would be possible to update lazarus to
Or give me rights in pkgdb as co-maintainer to do this myself? (I've requested rights some month ago, still in pending status).

Thank you.

The current version in repositories doesn't work because was built against fpc 2.4.

I also tried to compile the 0.9.30 version locally with fpc 2.6 but it fails.

At the moment I'm unable to build package that I maintain (skychart).

Comment 2 Mattia Verga 2012-03-04 14:27:50 UTC
I've just discovered that applications compiled with lazarus are all broken in Fedora 17 and higher due to glib2 >= 2.31.

There's a patch available here

that must be applied to support glib2 >= 2.31. This patch is not applied neither in, so must be manually applied.

Comment 3 Mattia Verga 2012-03-10 08:30:16 UTC
Lazarus was released a few days ago and it integrates the patch.

Comment 4 Bohuslav "Slavek" Kabrda 2012-03-15 09:32:09 UTC
Joost, any progress on this one? Even the Lazarus IDE won't start... I would really like to use my favourite Double Commander, which needs Lazarus to work.

Comment 5 Joost van der Sluis 2012-03-15 10:14:58 UTC
Wel, the news is that today Lazarus is released. The first release that is build upon Free Pascal 2.6.0. It's not for nothing that it took so long before Free Pascal 2.6.0 was added to Fedora. 

I'll add Lazarus to rawhide (btw: is already in Rawhide, compiled with fpc 2.6.0. When it works in rawhide, I'll merge it to F17.

Comment 6 Mattia Verga 2012-03-23 19:57:18 UTC
Is there any chance to see this fixed soon?

Having apps that don't work in a Release Candidate and cannot fix them is really annoying (for me at least...).

Comment 7 Mattia Verga 2012-04-05 15:29:45 UTC
Any news?

If you don't have time just approve my co-maintainership request in pkgdb and I will do the update...


Comment 8 Bohuslav "Slavek" Kabrda 2012-04-12 09:39:49 UTC
Joost, any progress on this one? Could you at least approve Mattia's ACLs, so that we can finally get Lazarus working?

Comment 9 Mattia Verga 2012-04-16 15:08:28 UTC
Without answers in the next 7 days, I will start to follow the "unresponsive package maintainer" policy, as discussed and suggested in the development mailing list.
