    Odemia - 2012-07-19

    Just went through the process of installing PyCam on Fedora 16 and have a few questions and a mapping of package names in yum.

    aptyum
    python-openglpython-opengl
    python-guppypython-guppy
    python-gtk2pygtk2
    python-gtkglext1pygtkglext
    python-rsvggnome-python2-rsvg
    python-pyodeNot available

    To install pyode you will need the following packages:

    • gcc

    • ode-devel

    • Pyrex

    Then need to hack around the difference in naming of libstdc++.so (ie simlink /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 to omit the .6).  Then download and compile pyode.

    sudo yum install gcc ode-devel Pyrex gcc;
    sudo ln -s simlink /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 simlink /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so;
    cd pyode/directory;
    sudo python setup.py build;
    sudo python setup.py install;

    So my questions are:
    How many of these are actually dependencies?  The only one that seems to prevent pyCam from running is the gtk gl extension.
    Can I or would you, please add this info to the wiki, for other Fedora users?
    There was no mention of psyco under dependencies in the wiki.  But I get a warning on launch that I do not have psyco.  May I suggest mentioning psyco on the Requirements page in the wiki?

    PS How do you edit posts on these forums?  I want to correct the OP.  Or preview posts for that matter, would like to know that the BBCodes work in the future.

    Hi odemia,

    thanks for preparing this list.
    I took the liberty to add this to the requirements wiki page:
    https://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/pycam/index.php?title=Requirements
    Please check the result and feel free to improve it.
    (I just gave you write permissions for the wiki - sourceforge's default permissions are horribly strict …)

    I also mentioned psyco (which seems to be more or less obsolete due to Python 3) on the wiki page.
    I also tried to clarify there that pyode is not interesting for most users.
    Anyway: feel free to add the installation instructions for pyode there or maybe just link to this thread …

    Thanks for improving PyCAM's documentation!

    cheers,
    Lars

    PS: it seems to be impossible to edit posts here - sorry!
