shameless cry for help

Dear lazyweb, does anyone have packages of Gimp 2.6 built for Fedora 9?

p.s. you need gegl, gegl-devel, babl, and babl-devel from rawhide. yum-builddep provides all the rest. Also had to add a fake g_dgettext() to the main.c, but then it builds fine. not sure what the g_dgettext issue is all about.

  1. roll up the sleeves

    Why don’t you build it yourself? it may take a couple of days, but you’ll get that warm fuzzy feeling :)

      I did. I would rather have an RPM for my other machines.

        How I normally do this is cheating:

        cvs co gimp
        cd gimp
        rm -rf F-9
        cp -pr devel F-9
        echo “F-9″ > F-9/branch
        cd F-9
        make mockbuild

        deal with problems… (as in check out other packages.. build those packages)
        and tada! after 8-12 days you have a package.

        I now normally I am doing this for EL-5 so its a LOT more packages :).

          norm murray at red hat builds them regularly for his photography work.

          give him a ping and he;ll be able to hook you up with the packages and all deps.

  2. Nope, but

    you’ll probably ask Nils? As far as I remember he was maintaining these and I guess he might be working on packaging 2.6.

        I know we are past the feature freeze for F10, but I wonder if we can “lobby” for it…, you know, “we need the improved tool to create even better graphics for F11″ :p

        PS: you beat my at blegging for GIMP 2.6… damn the timezones :D

  4. Did you get anywhere with packages for F9?

    • Norm Murray and Jon Orris built some F9 ones for x86_64. I only have x86 though. However these do require enabling rawhide for some packages because Gimp requires versions of stuff thats just not in F9.
