Linux Opensuse 12.1 and OpenCPN 2.6

In few words: it don't work like it should.

I finally discovered why I could not view my CM93-Jan2011 charts but could see the BSB charts. It is 2.6.1227. I cannot run 2.5 on opensuse 12.1 because I do not have and evidently cannot get MesaGL, which openCPN 2.5 needs.

SO, the only way I can run openCPN on opensuse 12.1 is to run it in wine, which has its own set of problems, like displaying all sounding text as black boxes instead of characters. Next I will run openCPN 2.5 in XP in VirtualBox and if that works, I will say that the issue is resolved as far as I am concerned. I will post the results later after I get enough time to install XP.

Re: Linux Opensuse 12.1 and OpenCPN 2.6

Have you compiled yourself, or are you trying the fedora rpm?

Re: Linux Opensuse 12.1 and OpenCPN 2.6

IIRC, I used the packaged rpm file. After running around the dependency circle for longer than I should have, I said something that rhymed with truck it and installed virtualbox, which had been on the project list for this new box. After that, I installed openCPN for WinXP and at that point, the linux problems became moot. Now, would I prefer to run a native linux program? Of course, but since VB is running in a linux window I really don't care. The bottom line is that I now have access to the charts. I use one of my desktops to run VirtualBox (WinXP) full screen and that way I have 3 others to clutter with various linux software. It works for me. YMMV

Re: Linux Opensuse 12.1 and OpenCPN 2.6

As you found out, it is unlikely that fedora rpms will run on OpenSuse. Different names on packages, dependencies etc makes it difficult.
OpenCPN 2.5 compiled fine on OpenSuse 11.3 & 11.4, see this post OpenCPN Version 2.5 Release
I dont't think anyone on this forum has tried to compile 2.6 Beta usng OpenSuse 12, but this ought to be fairly straight forward.

Re: Linux Opensuse 12.1 and OpenCPN 2.6

I have some OpenSuSE 12.1 virtual machines around here, so made the rpms for 2.6.1310
http://opencpn.xtr.cz/opencpn_2.6.1310-2_i386.rpm
http://opencpn.xtr.cz/opencpn_2.6.1310-2_x86_64.rpm
Upon installation they complain about unsatisfied libbz2 dependency - just ignore it now, I will look for a fix for the next beta. Didn't do any testing other than that they install and can be run.

Re: Linux Opensuse 12.1 and OpenCPN 2.6

Well, tried the opensuse 64 bit rpm but it puked. Maybe the virtual 12.1 there is hosed. Kept complaining about stuff already installed:
error: Failed dependencies:
libbz2
libwx_baseu-2.8.so.0()(64bit)
libwx_baseu-2.8.so.0(WXU_2.8)(64bit)
libwx_baseu_net-2.8.so.0()(64bit)
libwx_baseu_net-2.8.so.0(WXU_2.8)(64bit)
libwx_baseu_xml-2.8.so.0()(64bit)
libwx_baseu_xml-2.8.so.0(WXU_2.8)(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_adv-2.8.so.0()(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_adv-2.8.so.0(WXU_2.8)(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_adv-2.8.so.0(WXU_2.8.11)(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_aui-2.8.so.0()(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_aui-2.8.so.0(WXU_2.8)(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_core-2.8.so.0()(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_core-2.8.so.0(WXU_2.8)(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_gl-2.8.so.0()(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_gl-2.8.so.0(WXU_2.8)(64bit)
libwx_gtk2u_html-2.8.so.0()(64bit)
wxWidgets-wxcontainer
So, I downloaded and compiled the 2.6.1310 Build 2012-01-10 source and it works just fine. I now have a native linux openCPN 2.6 and an openCPN 2.5 that runs on my virtual XP and they both work really well. Thanks!

Re: Linux Opensuse 12.1 and OpenCPN 2.6

trifan...
Did you actually try to install the rpms I built (selecting option 2 when zypper asks you)? The reason I'm asking is that if the correct wx packages are installed in advance, the only incorrectly unidentified dependency is bz2 - from that I conclude, that OpenSuSE should be able to handle all the others automatically. The builder machine is a clean install+opencpn build prerequisites, so I don't think there's much to be wrong with it. If you could post the exact output of zypper, it would save me making another clean VM.

Thanks

Pavel

Pavel:

I saved your x64 rpm and then did a "rpm -i <filename>" so there was no zypper anything in the process. As for the packages it is crying about, they are all installed. As for your question, how would I get dependency errors if I had not tried to install your rpm? Dunno why it didn't work but I do know that the source compiled and runs great.
