ROSA Linux Bugzilla – Bug 5275
Kicad - request to update
Last modified: 2015-04-04 17:36:22 MSD
The version of Kicad present in rosa repositories is quite outdated. Kicad developers are not more distributing stable releases, but switched to a launchpad distribution of their software that implicates the download of updated sources and their compilation.
To ease this process they developed an helper file that, unfortunately, is not compatible with urpmi-based applications, obliging to a manual installation.
the link is:
Is it possible to add to the repositories a modified version of this helper file, or an updated version of Kicad?
Thank you for your help.
Kicad in our repositories has been updated.
I'll take a look at helper scripts, as well. Hopefully upstream will accept modifications that would allow using it in ROSA and other urpmi-based distributions.
Patch for kicad-install.sh has been sent upstream - https://bugs.launchpad.net/kicad/+bug/1440006
Thank You a lot, Dennis.
I hope that your patch will be soon included in the official helper. In any case it will not be difficult to modify the helper file manually.
