The abiword libgucharmap issue

I have found this set of developer emails:

http://www.abisource.com/mailinglists/a … /0368.html

This seems to highlight the probable area of difficulty with the gnome dependencies.

PS I have installed with the testing cd. the trick I find: is to create the grub files in /boot by doing a local grub-install. But to do the active grub-install from an arch 32 partition on the same disk. (I have an asus mother board and sata drive, and hd0 and hd3 get cheerfully swapped around by the bios).

Re: The abiword libgucharmap issue

I have been able to resolve the issues as follows.

I downloaded gucharmap-1.4.0. from

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/ … .0.tar.bz2

and configured with --prefix=/usr

Abiword now starts up for me. Do we need this as a dependency?

Re: The abiword libgucharmap issue

On my machine, abiword ordinarily fails to start up, because it reports difficulty with a missing ligubcharmap file.

So there will be some reason why the build is deficient. For me, this was so with the build from the earlier iso, too.

I use kde and therefore do not have the complete gnome-based libraries.

Has no-one else experienced the difficulty? I  displayed the email correspondence between abiword developers, because it seems there is a known vulnerability.


Thanks

Geoff

Re: The abiword libgucharmap issue

You're right: ldd shows

libgucharmap.so.4 => /opt/gnome/lib/libgucharmap.so.4 (0x00002abca9e29000)

I'll get into it. Anyway we have flyspray now open for x86_64. You can use it next time if you want.

Got it smile

There's a configure switch --disable-gucharmap I will add.

Re: The abiword libgucharmap issue

Thanks, AndyRTR.

I am using arch64 all the time, now. Nice build!

There seems to be an issue for me with the pkg's database for "extra". I am having to install some pkg's manually. Could it be that not all repo "extra" databases are up to date?

I use belnet.

Thanks

Geoff

We copied all packages from arch64.org to archlinux. But before the packages appear in the repo db we/I have to bring them into archlinux.org's cvs and tag them. A few from extra are still missing. If you see packages on the ftp but not in the repo db feel free to send me a list so I can add them.

What is already done you can see any time: http://www.archlinux.org/~andyrtr/pkg_diff.html ;-)

Fixed abiword uploaded.

Re: The abiword libgucharmap issue

Thanks again. These are the untagged ones I came across.

gtk2-perl-1.122-2.pkg.tar.gz
jpilot-0.99.8-2.pkg.tar.gz
openoffice-base-2.0.3-1.pkg.tar.gz
stardict-2.4.6-1.pkg.tar.gz
xmahjongg-3.7-2.pkg.tar.gz
xsane-0.991-1.pkg.tar.gz
zim-0.15-1.pkg.tar.gz
psiconv-0.9.8-1.pkg.tar.gz
link-grammar-4.1.3-1.pkg.tar.gz
gtkmathview-0.7.5-1.pkg.tar.gz
abiword-plugins-2.4.3-1.pkg.tar.gz

My guess would be these represent a sizeable proportion.

Thanks

Geoff
