Help needed: 0.17 for Fedora package

Postby hobbes1069 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 2:27 pm

I've been trying without success to build official packages for Fedora. There's quite the web of issues so I'll try to be succinct but thorough at the same time (wish me luck).
  • 0.17 bundles smesh 5.X, Fedora has 6.7.5 from the fork provided by the OCE guys[1].
  • The bundled smesh requires libmed which is not in Fedora, when using system smesh its not explicitly required (but probably a good idea long term).
  • There is a pull request[2] that was accepted to make FreeCAD compliant with smesh 7.
  • The pull request fixes some of the compilation issues with smesh 6.X but causes others
  • I added some logic[3] around smesh in cmake for linking with the right libraries but now that patch is all interwoven with the pull request.
So I've been trying for over a month to get this sorted out but at this point I've largely given up. Hopefully some people smarter than me can help :)

Thanks,
Richard

I am currently using this patch [1] to link to the full paths of smesh. THis is needed for osx-conda-packages. Maybe you can try if this solves any issues for you.

Can you explain your problems?

I tried in the pull request but both you and wmayer stopped responding...

I implemented a similar solution myself:

Code: Select all

             if(NOT SMESH_FOUND)
+                # Find libraries manually
+                foreach(smesh_lib SMDS SMESH SMESHDS StdMeshers)
+                    find_library(SMESH_${smesh_lib} ${smesh_lib})
+                    if(SMESH_${smesh_lib})
+                        list(APPEND SMESH_LIBRARIES ${SMESH_${smesh_lib}})
+                    else()
+                        message(ERROR "  ==========================\n"
+                              "  SMESH library ${smesh_lib} not found.\n"
+                              "  ==========================\n")
+                    endif()
+                endforeach()
+                message(STATUS "smesh libs found: ${SMESH_LIBRARIES}")
+                find_path(SMESH_INCLUDE_DIR SMESH_SMESH.hxx
+                    PATH_SUFFIXES smesh)
+            endif()
I'm currently trying to build with a slight modification to your pull request, some of the conditionals you added around what headers to include appear to be OK for smesh 6 as well. I'm trying a build but I still expect a failure due to the commit to the bundled smesh to implement a single smesh generator per session of Freecad[4,5].

Perhaps you could come up with an additional conditional that would be appropriate for smesh 6?

After chainging SMESH_VERSION_MAJOR to 6 (and after changing the conditionals to >= 6 for the includes) I get this:

Maybe you can look where the external smesh defines SMDS_VtkVolume?

It doesn't look like smesh 6 has 'SMDS_VtkVolume'...

Hi Richard,
What version of fedora do you use? Rawhide?

Let me know if you're interested in joining the group: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/group ... cad/coprs/

Edit: libmed is in fedora-28 (packages med & med-devel), but there are problems with finding it, so I use cmake with

Code: Select all

-DMEDFILE_INCLUDE_DIRS=%{_includedir}/med/
in .spec

It looks like it is mandatory.
Maybe it's easier to use the internal smesh. I guess you should be able to run an external smesh and the internal smesh of FreeCAD side by side if you install freecad to /usr/lib/freecad like it is done for ubuntu.

Ok, it looks like just the fork I use doesn't integrate Vtk so I opened up an issue on their github issue tracker:

https://github.com/tpaviot/smesh/issues/55

I tried building the smesh you mention[5] in the pull request but I get an error building:

Code: Select all
