#1026 geda-bundle in 10.7

Add to tree (2)

libstroke, gsch2pcb pcb and geda-bundle are missing from 10.7 (Lion) list of supported packages. Could this be as easy as moving the existing 10.6 packages into the 10.7 stable tree?

fink 0.32.3

    According to the description for geeda-gsh2pcb:

    geda-gsch2pcb 1:1.6.2-1 Placeholder to update geda-gsch2pcb to geda-gaf (OBSOLETE)

    geda-gaf _is_ available in 10.7.

    Really, the issue is that most of the packages that go into the geda-bundle aren't available. :-)

    I've arbitrarily assigned this item to the geda* maintainer.

    If you would like to help out in getting these updated, you can download the 10.4 package descriptions. the simplest way is to edit /sw/etc/fink.conf as a superuser and add "10.4" to the SelfUpdateTrees: line, then run a selfupdate. At that point you'll have a /sw/fink/10.4 directory that contains all of the 10.4 package description files, and you can copy those over to your 10.7 tree--I'd recommend putting them in /sw/fink/10.7/local/main/finkinfo.

    libstroke depends on glib1, which isn't in the 10.7 tree (and probably shouldn't be). AKH is right about gsch2pcb being included in geda-gaf. I seem to remember some other difficulties with pcb, but if you want to give it a try and report any problems, let me know.

    Ok, you will find pcb.files.tar.gz, a bundle of the configuration files I set up to build and install pcb. I selected the latest pcb source release, and patched them to compile. The adjusted the pcb.info file, added pcb.patch, all others are 'as is' from the 10.4 tree.
