Translating spec to dockerfile for upstream ispc

Upstream ISPC [0] will need a dockerfile to reproduce the failure to
build ispc package in Fedora[1][2].

Attempt to update ispc

Hello team,

Upstream ispc updated to 1.10.0.  Unfortunately, the build failed with
broken clang++ compiler according to koji  
(<a href="" title=""></a>)

Can someone investigate the issue? This package is needed by embree, a
dependency for both Blender, luxcorerender and Yafaray.



Non-responsive dlib maintainer

Hello team,

The maintainer of dlib package hasn't responded for two weeks to address
one issue: updating to the latest stable release.

Need assihotstance to build ispc snaps

Apology for accidental encryption. I attempt to get a snapshot of ispc
supporting llvm 7.0 which is needed by embree.

LuxRender renamed luxcorerender

Upstream LuxRender changed its name to LuxCoreRender. The source package
is submitted for re-review
<a href="" title=""></a> .

Massive cleanup  from the old LuxRender.spec is done. It does not
include the new macros found on the development release yet but it is
easy setup in that mind. A strange bug during the build triggered a DUP
FUNXC as highlighted on
<a href="" title=""></a> but can be safely



While scratch build LuxCoreRender, I hit an endless loop of "DUP FUNXC"
using rpmbuild and koji. It appears a bug on rpm as highlighted on
<a href="" title=""></a>.

Can someone verify with the attached spec file and what will be the


Need assistance to build LuxCoreRender

LuxRender is dead, long live LuxCoreRender. 

I attempt to build LuxCoreRender in rpm format. Unfortunately, issue
like unable to detect boost despite its presence forcing to use static
version. I include the spec file for preview and would some pointers.

Thanks in advance.


Enabling powerline theme system wide by default

It will be nice to enable powerline theme by default system and user
wide. Simple reason is refresh the look of terminal while also providing
useful information especially for git branch. Since powerline does not
impact the performance, it will be great to set for Fedora 30.

Comments welcome.


Need assistance to fix bpy incompatiblity with Python 3.7 for f29+

Due to the incompatibly with bpy (Blender as Python module) and Python
3.7, the interface failed to render as seen on this report:
<a href="" title=""></a>

Normal solution would be using Python36. Unfortunately, there is no
python36-devel or modules to properly rebuild Blender. So I am looking
for suggestion and alternative to address that issue. I filed the bug
upstream: <a href="" title=""></a> for now.

Failure on both OpenImageIO and opencv

Hello team,

It looks like both OpenImageIO and opencv failed again as I was unable
to build LuxRender which depends on them.
Could someone investigate the issue?

Remaining embree-2.17.4 to embree2

New version of embree 3.0.0 (<a href="" title=""></a>) is incompatible with embree 2.17.4 (<a href="" title=""></a>). The question is do I need to submit a new package review for embree2 even though the spec remains almost unchanged.


GCC 8.0.x caused failure on Blender dependent libraries

It looks like some Blender dependencies such as openvdb and embree
failed to build with gcc 8.x while they successfully compiled with GCC

Please test f28-backgrounds package

f28-backgrounds just got packaged and ready for beta release. Please
test and give positive if everything works as intended.

Need assistance to build openvdb for both Blender and LuxRender

Hello team,

openvdb currently failed for some odd reasons
(<a href="" title=""></a>) on both
Rawhide and F28 in order to rebuild for boost 1.66.

Looking for tail result from build.log, it seems the mockbuild hit a bug:

<a href=";volume=DEFAULT&amp;name=build.log&amp;offset=-4000" title=";volume=DEFAULT&amp;name=build.log&amp;offset=-4000">;volume=DEFAU...</a>

Can someone investigate the cause? Thanks

Thanks in advance.


Hello team,

I am interested for a review swap with a simple add-on named
scribus-generator, a mail-merge type template for Scribus useful for
making business card for example.

The link for the review is on:
<a href="" title=""></a>

More info about the addon on <a href="" title=""></a>

Using amdgpu as default for all GCN cards

After seeing the improvement done on AMD support from the past years, one step is missing, enable amdgpu module as default for all GCN cards including South Island and Sea Island.
A Fedora contributor provided a special kernel with these support.

State of Sparkeshare in Fedora

Sparkleshare package is currently behind upstream which just reach 2.0[1][2]
The maintainer was contacted for updating the package with current broken dependency below on Fedora 27 and above:

Problem: package sparkleshare-1.2.0-8.fc26.x86_64 requires mono(webkit-sharp) =, but none of the providers can be installed
- conflicting requests
- nothing provides webkitgtk needed by webkit-sharp-0.3-19.fc26.x86_64

but no response so far[3][4].
As the application is used by Design Team, could someone make the change because I cannot access it?
Thanks in advance,



Merging two updates


Is it possible to merge updates in bodhi? The reasons is packages
depends from the same source. For example, LuxRender and YafaRay have
separate updates but depend of Blender and I would like to merge them.

State of Sparkleshare

As a maintainer of Fedora Design Suite, the state of sparkleshare brought attention with these outstanding report:
* <a href="" title=""></a>
