Qwt packages for Fedora

Hi,

qwt-5.0.1 packages for Fedora are now available here:
ftp://open-gnss.org/pub/fedora/qwt/

The package builds on both i386 and x86_64, is built for QT-3.3. But I
have not tested it, so please try it out and give me feedback, so I
can get it ready for review for inclusion in Fedora.

Cheers,

Trond D.

A small error reported by Johnathan C. has now been corrected: New
package here: ftp://open-gnss.org/pub/fedora/qwt/qwt-5.0.1-2.x86_64.rpm
and ftp://open-gnss.org/pub/fedora/qwt/qwt-5.0.1-2.src.rpm

(only x86_64 this time, I just turned of my laptop…)

Yeah, I agree that the .pc file is the best way to handle providing this
info. In the qwt tar file on the n4hy.org web site there is a version of
the qwt library that has the .pc file in it. It is similar to the qt-mt.pc
file that is installed by qt.

I will send an email to the upstream developer regarding the pkg-config
file.

When packaging stuff I try to remain compatible with upstream, but the
qwt package contains alot of header files, and I think it would be
better to store them in a separate subfolder. I’ll discuss this with
the upstream devs too.

It’s fine and I encourage having the qwt headers installed into their
own subdirectory. That’s how it’s packaged for Debian/Ubuntu, and when
you compile from the source tarball, it does it too. (Though the
directory is not named qwt).

The qwt configuration script looks to be working finally. If you want
to compile the gr-qtgui component to test, do the following:

  1. Uncomment the #GRC_GR_QTGUI line in configure.ac, and re-run
    bootstrap. (Right now the component is disabled for everybody.)

  2. Add the two following lines to your ./configure script command line:

./configure --with-qwt-incdir=… --with-qwt-libdir=…

Replace the dots with the actual directory path that the include files
are installed into and the path the qwt library is installed into. It’s
unfortunate, but every distribution is putting these files into a
different place, and there is no way for the configure script to find
them automatically.

For example, if you install qwt from the sourceforge tarball, you’d have
to do:

$ ./configure --with-qwt-incdir=/usr/local/qwt/include
–with-qwt-libdir=/usr/local/qwt/lib

All this being said, gr-qtgui doesn’t do anything useful yet :slight_smile: so
don’t go looking for QT versions of all the wxPython stuff we already
have. However, the QWT library has a very rich set of widgets and
eventually we’ll be using these to display GNU Radio flow-graph
generated output.
