RPMs

Hi all. Really a cool software.
I am new here and I probably have a stupid question.
The senario: I want to install and run the Opencpm on a computer with a stripped operating system (the reason for this is speed and ofcourse it will only be used for navigation) I found the os I want to use: InstantOn | Get wilder, get faster. Is it any plans for the future to build rpm's to install on Mandriva distro?

Terje

How about using arch, with pacman and abs it is very easy to build binary packages. There is a opencpn build package, which can be used to create a binary, you could do that on another pc.

With advertising done, rpmfind.net offers this:
RPM Search opencpn-1.3.2-1pclos2009.i586.rpm

Somewhat out ot date, but you could get the source package and update the rpm spec to build the current version. PCLinuxOS is a mandriva derivee, so it probably fits in nicely

If you do so, do not forget to post the packages somewhere...

Hi Sredna,
Thank you for the replay. I am not that clever to build binary packages. I am more like a "User" ha ha.... So I probably have to wait for somone to do that...

Ahhh.... Jeg så ikke før nå at du er dansk...... Ha en fin dag.
Terje

Terje,
Let us hope someone picks up on it then

You could contact the author of the package and ask for an update maybe. Or contact mandriva and suggest they package opencpn for their OS

Another line of action is to convert the .deb package to rpm:
alien

In any case, good luck
Anders

Hi Anders.

I mannaged to convert the .deb into rpm and installed it into the Mandriva. It seems to work ok, but I have not tried with GPS yet. I will let you know.

Again, Thank you.

Terje.

Yea, the funny part is that I'm at work now without any linux machine so I did everything remote on my webserver at home (converting and installing and at the end started the program) hurray for linux.

The program I use to convert is one called alien. I convert it to an RPM that works fine on OpenSuse 11.2, although it will run on other boxes I've set up. The command is simple: alien -r *.deb.

I don't have a lot of experience with opencpn, but I do have a few years w/ Linux, if anyone needs help. I still need to buy a 'new' gps.

To get things moving on the rpm front, I have put a link on the Installing OpenCPN page to a rpm package converted with alien on a kubuntu box.
This is far from ideal, as for example a proper Mandriva RPM should be built from the OpenCPN:s source code on a Mandriva box.
Users may find problems with dependencies, among other things.

As a guide here is the list of dependencies in the .deb package
Quote:
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.4), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1-21), libgl1-mesa-glx | libgl1, libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0), libglu1-mesa | libglu1, libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0), libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.1-21), libwxbase2.8-0 (>= 2.8.7.1), libwxgtk2.8-0 (>= 2.8.7.1), zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.3.3.dfsg-1)

You can't expect this rpm, created on Ubuntu to work on the latest cutting edge Fedora. There is no such thing as a universal rpm, unfortunately. As your output shows, there is a conflict with a library on Fedora. For this rpm to work, a rpm distro has to use the same ( or very similar) versions of different dependencies, as Ubuntu 9.10.

You can, however, get OpenCPN up and running on Fedora by compiling yourself. Here is a "howto" I did for the installation on Fedora 11. Help / FAQ
