FreeCAD 0.13 for Fedora now in the testing at RPM Fusion

Postby hobbes1069 » Fri Feb 22, 2013 3:07 pm

Quick announcement:

FreeCAD 0.13 is now available for Fedora via RPM Fusion in the non-free testing repository.

This also includes an update of OCE to the current release of 0.11.

To install, make sure you have the RPM Fusion non-free repositories installed and:

Code: Select all
yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing install freecad


If you're already running the 0.12 package from RPM Fusion then change "install" to "update".

RPM Fusion's policy is that the packages will move to the non-testing repository after about 2 weeks. After that, the --enablerepo option will not be necessary.

Thanks,
Richard

Great for Fedora users. This could be mentioned on the download page? Probably clicking on Linux in Download section on front page should redirect to page where both Ubuntu and Fedora instructions would be mentioned and i guess in the future the list will grow.

Yes, fedora is becoming very well supported thanks to you guys!
I think it is time to split the linux download between at least ubuntu and fedora... I'll have a look at that.
Richard, is there a web page we can direct users to? Something like the freecad launchpad page, that shows package details and explains how to install?

There's not a freecad specific page on RPM Fusion but you could link to the configuration page:

http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration

Anyone that already has it installed should know how to get FreeCAD.

Thanks,
Richard

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: freecad-0.13-1.fc17.i686 (rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing)
Requires: python-collada

I find: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=903732
and: https://github.com/zultron/python-collada-rpm

Any idea when a python-collada rpm will be in a public repo?

Dangit! I completely forgot about that review request since I was running a local copy of python-collada. I'll get this resolved as fast as I can.

python collada is not really indispensable. .. can you maybe mark it as optional somehow?

Yes, but it's non-trivial. I would have to kick off new builds within RPM Fusion infrastructure and wait for them to be put into the testing repositories.

Here's my solution I think is simpler... Here's links to what will become the official package:

Fedora 17:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/34775202/pytho ... noarch.rpm

Fedora 18:
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/34775202/pytho ... noarch.rpm

You can download them and let the GUI install them (it will probably complain they are not signed) or from the shell as root:

$ yum install <URL>

Even if there's another revision before the package is accepted, these will work and the end user will still be automatically updated once the higher rev package is released.

Thanks,
Richard

python-collada is now in Fedora and Fedora EPEL so everything should work properly now!

I'm also kicking off the RPM Fusion EPEL 6 build for RHEL/CentOS/SL...
