32 bit Debian 8.6.0

Postby johnkdad » Wed Dec 04, 2019 8:22 pm

Hi Gentlemen,

I hope this is not a repeat of another post, but I did search and could not find anything. I have Debian 32 bit (i386) 8.6.0 installation and would like to install FreeCAD 0.18 on the machine. All I have been able to find is the appl 64 bit download. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Hi John,

It will be difficult to build on such an old version because of e.g. old versions of Qt 5 and missing dependencies. Your best bet will probably be to try to build the package with the configuration we use for Ubuntu 16.04, which uses Qt 4, since that's about as old:

https://salsa.debian.org/science-team/f ... ppa/xenial

You'll also probably need to build opencascade at least, and also coin, soqt, and pivy if you want a Python 3 build.

Edit: Also, just to be clear, have you tried the appimage from here https://www.freecadweb.org/downloads.php?
Like my FreeCAD work? I'd appreciate any level of support via Patreon, Liberapay, or PayPal! Read more about what I do at my blog.

Oh, duh. So it looks like building the package and maybe some dependencies is the way to go if updating or using a newer Debian version in a VM is not an option.

Or building a 32 bit AppImage from PPA assets. I guess it would need to be based on 16.04 so all the QT issues would still exist.
Also, I think @bernd provided a build script for Jessie that builds OCC and some other stuff, PY2 though if I remember, I will search for the link.

I would recommend to update your system to the actual Debian 10 (Buster). It has a package for FreeCAD 0.18.
