abiword plugin upgrade fails with missing deps
« on: July 19, 2007, 02:30:00 am »

Hello, all.

While trying to upgrade abiword-plugins through gslapt I got a dependency error: aiksaurus was missing.
After compiling aiksaurus from source, it now asks me for link-grammar. That one I had trouble compiling.

I had the packages, extra, patches, and testing repositories enabled.

Thank you

I have successfully packaged both Aiksaurus (English language thesaurus) and link-grammar (English language grammar checker) and I hope both will be in testing shortly.

Even if you install both of those abiword-plugins still fails as follows:

abiword-plugins: Depends: gtkmathview >= 0.7.7

That will be the next package I build.

Thank you very much, caitlyn!
Hope there are no more dependencies after this one...

Shouldn't all those be in the repository before the package gets added? I note that there are several required packages listed that are not in the four package sources that I have enabled (testing, patches, packages, and extras).

This one is in the "packages" repository, though. So maybe it didn't get tested (through the process of getting added to "testing" and then moved to "extra").

The answer to your question is an emphatic "yes".  Someone made a mistake,

I've now packaged and installed gtkmathviewer and it, along with aiksaurus and link-grammar, should be in testing soon.  The bad news is that we are still missing at least one more dependency:

  abiword-plugins: Depends: psiconv >= 0.9.8

It's next on my list to build.  I will get this fixed one way or another.

I built and installed the psiconv package and sure enough the abiword-plugins upgrade then proceeded smoothly.  To review the four missing dependencies are:

aiksaurus
link-grammar
psiconv
gtkmathview

All four have now been uploaded.  It looks like the repository maintainers are taking the weekend off but all four packages should show up in testing soon and then, after a suitable period, in extra or patches.  Once that's done this problem will be solved.

Great!
That's one less issue with the repos.

Thank you very much, caitlyn.
