#80 closed defect (invalid)

Release 2.5 will not build with Makefile for Fedora 28.

Reported by: Christopher Rodriguez Owned by: pulkomandy
Priority: trivial Milestone: 2.6
Component: GrafX2 Version: 2.5
Keywords: Cc:


In trying to package GrafX2 for Fedora 28, I came across an omission in the Makefile (specifically for Linux). As is, make install fails with errors about missing directories. Patch attached fixes the issue entirely.

We should probably make an updated source/binary package of the 2.5 release with bugfixes included?

comment:3 by Thomas Bernard, 6 years ago

This patch isn't already included in grafx2-2.5.1960-src.tgz ?

comment:4 by Thomas Bernard, 6 years ago

I just checked : Yes it is !

comment:5 by PulkoMandy, 6 years ago

Allright then. Cristopher, which source did you use? Maybe we forgot to update a download link somewhere?

comment:6 by Christopher Rodriguez, 6 years ago

I checked out the source for the latest release tag.

If v2.5.1960 is a bugfix release, could it be tagged as such in the repo?

I see on the Downloads page for this site there's a source download that lists the package You mentioned (thanks, saves me the trouble of maintaining a patch), but it's below the "Get the Sourcecode" section.

The first bullet directed me to the gitlab repo, which is as far as I read, since I'm used to working with git. The second bullet mentions You hosting a source package below, but doesn't mention that the hosted package might contain bugfixes not present in the tagged releases.

If you prefer, you can rely on the tagged release from gitlab and integrate the 8e94f338dff72024ec4e1e1ecd15aa8271ff8317 patch.
I don't know what is more convenient for you with the fedora packet building system

Well, while we're at it I'd rather have a version with all the bugfixes (also the operation/cursor mapping bug, for example).

I think we should tag as a bugfix for 2.5. Will do it in the evening if everyone is ok with it.
