Just went through the process of installing PyCam on Fedora 16 and have a few questions and a mapping of package names in yum.
To install pyode you will need the following packages:
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;
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.
thanks for preparing this list.
I took the liberty to add this to the requirements wiki page:
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!
PS: it seems to be impossible to edit posts here - sorry!
another note: you can support the following sourceforge improvement request, if you would like to have a preview …
