  1. I don’t have enough quota on people and Havoc’s not around to push it to his people space (since he has a higher quota for gnomehide). Patience, grasshopper 🙂

  2. is that what is requiring libpisock.so.4?

    That is by far the most requested unresolvable
    dep to the up2date servers. Nothing supported
    we ship requires it (rawhide and resumable
    gnomehide and probabaly ximian require it though).

  3. gnome-pilot requires libpisock, yes.

    And it should be provided by by pilot-link, which RedHat does indeed ship.

    [alchemist@pikachu]> rpm -q –whatprovides /usr/lib/libpisock.so.4
    pilot-link-0.9.5-10

  4. right, it’s a rawhide/gnomehide package.

    but by “shipped” I mean it’s either the main
    release or an errata for it.

    pilot-link-0.9.5-8.i386.rpm is the latest available
    for 7.2, and it contains libpisock.so.3

    -10 and higher are libpisock.so.4. Of course, having
    the soname change and just the package release number
    change is a bit suspicious to me, but then I dont build
    the packages, just deliver them.

  5. Good point. Blame whoever packaged the -10 over there, then :

    Summary : File transfer utilities between Linux and PalmPilots.
    Description :
    This suite of tools allows you to upload and download programs and
    data files between a Linux/UNIX machine and the PalmPilot. It has a
    few extra utilities that will allow for things like syncing the
    PalmPilot’s calendar app with Ical. Note that you might still need to
    consult the sources for pilot-link if you would like the Python, Tcl,
    or Perl bindings.

    Install pilot-link if you want to synchronize your Palm with your Red
    Hat Linux system.

  6. Yep. gnomehide isn’t building with gnome-pilot support anymore because of this. Just builds destined for the great bit bucket in the sky known as rawhide.

    As to why it changed mid package stream, it’s because 0.9.5 was originally an 0.9.5 pre. 0.9.5 final had the soname change, but nobody actually updated that package to get the final version until later 🙁 And gnome-pilot hits some fun bugs in the prior to final version.

  7. Intentional… just too much breakage due to bumping the pilot-link version there (breaks kdepim and jpilot which is annoying at best)

  8. yeah, that’s a bitch. So I uninstalled kpilot & jpilot to use the conduits with 1.0, and now I’m rebuilding the gnomehide 1.0.1 with conduit support.

    becaue the Conduits kick much ass. I can see issues recompiling kpilot, but jpilot should be easy enough…

  9. None of it is “hard”. But people bitch enough as is about the huge set of dependencies required for evolution so I’ve tried to minimize it as much as possible while still providing them in a form that will work for 7.2-ish stuff. Going forward, rawhide will be the way to go… but running a rawhide system right now is highly not recommended (as in, I haven’t even switched any of my machines over 🙂

    Delicate line to balance on (eg, the 1.0.1 packages are bringing in linkage against mozilla 0.9.7 which wasn’t my intention either)

  10. I get the picture. Now, how do I get it to compile the pilot stullf on a — rebuild or -ba? Just add pilot_support=true to the command line or what?

  11. Right. I might as well bump the release # as well *grin*.

    If I hack the .spec file so that the pilot conduits are built, but placed in an evolution-pilot-conduits package or somesuch, would you find that acceptable? That takes the dependancy out of the “main” evo RPM, but allows people who want it to install it.
