Yeah, another “Getting to work on openSUSE 10.3” post. Perhaps I should print me a t-shirt: “No, I will not fix your openSUSE” or “I helped Novell to actually make a linux distribution and all I got was this lousy t-shirt”
This time our package is “simply” not included (Remember this x point. I will tell you what happend right there immediately.) in the distribution…
I just decided to write another article about how openSUSE 10.3 finally sucks (will link it here, if done. THERE I will tell you, what happend at x 😉 )
Enough ranting (calm down, calm down)…
If you want gscan2pdf on openSUSE 10.3 , you have to Install perl-Gtk2-Ex-PodViewer first.
This package is a dependency of gscan2pdf, which is neither in the main repository nor in the build service.
from the guru repository (We cannot install that directly on 10.3 .Noticed the 102 and the src 😉 ).
Try to build it with
#> rpmbuild --rebuild perl-Gtk2-Ex-PodViewer-0.14-3.guru.suse102.src.rpm Installing perl-Gtk2-Ex-PodViewer-0.14-3.guru.suse102.src.rpm warning: InstallSourcePackage: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 58857177 error: Failed build dependencies: perl-Gtk2 is needed by perl-Gtk2-Ex-PodViewer-0.14-3.guru.suse103.i586 perl-Glib is needed by perl-Gtk2-Ex-PodViewer-0.14-3.guru.suse103.i586 perl-IO-stringy is needed by perl-Gtk2-Ex-PodViewer-0.14-3.guru.suse103.i586 perl-Pod-Simple is needed by perl-Gtk2-Ex-PodViewer-0.14-3.guru.suse103.i586
Install the four listed dependencies, if necessary (They should be all in Yast…). Then try again.
Now, install the new package. As root:
rpm -Uvh /usr/src/packages/RPMS/i586/perl-Gtk2-Ex-PodViewer-0.14-3.guru.suse103.i586.rpm
“U” means “upgrade or install” and “vh” configures the graphical progress bar of the rpm command.
Do the same for:
Finally, search gscan2pdf in the build service , install it and enjoy!
