dxflib ABI changed yet nothing changed

Hi,

Got via e-mail that libdxflib's ABI changed in comparison to previous release, yet nothing changed in the package except version bump for the mass rebuild. Why is that?

Digest Summary:
1. dist.abicheck FAILED for libdxflib-3.17.0-8.fc30
2.

Camotics fails with default Fedora flags GCC9 (cbang)

Hi,

With a new version of GCC errors are blocking the build at various places. Not sure how serious the issue is.

/usr/include/GL/glext.h:467:10: fatal error: KHR/khrplatform.h: No such file or directory

Hi,

Got an e-mail from Koschei [1] with a notice that camotics package is starting to fail to build. The reason for this seems to be that something that used to pull mesa-libEGL-devel doesn't do so anymore.

/usr/include/GL/glext.h:467:10: fatal error: KHR/khrplatform.h: No such file or directory

Since /usr/include/GL/glext.h belongs to mesa-libGL-devel and not camotics I think it would be more appropriate to put the dependency there.

Kernel marking files in /boot as %ghost

Dear list,

I've stumbled upon a serious issue that has not been discussed before. Somewhere around May 2015 kernel files was moved to /usr/lib/modules/<kernelver>, which are then copied to /boot in post scriptlets [1]. The issue is that such files are marked with %ghost because they don't exist initially and are being copied when installed. Now because of that rpm (rpm -qV) can't verify the files attributes correctly and heck even doesn't point out if they don't exist at all as it is the case if dnf fails in the middle of transaction.

GCC 8: camotics fails to build for i686, ARMv7 arches (reading 31 bytes from a region of size 16)

Hello,

Need help figuring this out since I have no idea what this means.

The cbang code that is included in camotics fails to build with the following messages.

Upstream installs AppData file in /usr/share/appdata

Hi,

I have a package where upstream installs AppData file in /usr/share/appdata, but the Fedora Packaging Guidelines says it should be installed to /usr/share/metainfo. I am wondering how to approach this; should I submit a PR upstream, should I change it locally or should I leave it unchanged.

Testing graphical applications inside mock fails

Hi,

I am trying to test graphical application inside mock chroot environment as documented on Fedora wiki [1], but I am unable to do that successfully. In addition to that instructions I've installed mesa-dri-drivers and mesa-libGL inside the chroot as there were messages about missing files. But still no luck, some applications appear with an incomplete window, other ones without any.

cbang build error on epel

Hi,

I am building CAMotics with cbang builds successfully for i686 and x86_64 platforms, I am trying to make it work for other architectures, in particular armv7 and ppc64 (there is no v8-314 available for others).

So while testing fixes on copr I've stumbled upon an issue of what I am not sure about, the build for ppc64le pass for f24-f27 but fails on epel7.

src/cbang/tar/TarHeader.cpp:226:43: error: format '%llo' expects argument of type 'long long unsigned int', but argument 4 has type 'uint64_t {aka long unsigned int}' [-Werror=format=]
sprintf(buf, "%0*" PRIo64, length - 1, n);

sudo not looking into /usr/local

Hi,

Something I stumbled upon today is that there is no convenient way by default to make some custom script accessible via sudo without specifying full path. Found out that sudo have limited set of paths in its environment that is looking into [1]. Sadly, none of it is appropriate for custom scripts. I think it would be nice to include /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/sbin also.

Intelligentmirror needs a refresh

intelligentmirror-0.5-1.noarch.rpm installs with a couple of issues:

1. It's missing apache configuration line with "Require all granted"
2. SELinux is blocking it by default so I suppose it needs a policy file?

I know that intelligentmirror is not in fedora repositories and thus not officially supported, but it is a shame that doesn't work out of the box because in my opinion is a very useful piece of software. If anyone would care to take a look at it that would be awesome.
