[bug#36440] [PATCH] Add FreeCAD

Date: Tue, 3 Sep 2019 15:10:49 +0000

Hi all,

One quick update.  I fixed the freecad patch which included a bad change and rebased on master of today.
QtWebKit succeeded this time and with opencascade-oce freecad builds and runs.
Switching to opencascade-occt does not build. It fails with `ld: cannot find -lXmu` when building the PartDesigner module.

Thanks again,

I just tried building opencascade-occt and there was a failure in the test suite:
I did replace opencascade-oce with occt in the hopes that it will have better support in the future.
There is also the issue of the bundled (though heavily patched) SMESH library. If I get some time soon, I can take another look at unbundling it.

I found qtwebkit failing for me, too, so I was unable to build freecad with the most recent patches. The dependencies build ok though.

Yes it is, I used hdf5-1.10 for libmedfile.

I removed SoQT and freecad build properly before qtwebkit failed.

I was using what amounted to the pre-release of v4. I replaced with the release version now that it is out.

I changed the license.

I added this license instead

I am sorry, I looked through the documentation and I don't know what they are.

I recently tried to run the tests for all of the pyside tools (shiboken2, pyside2, and pyside2-tools).
All fail to find libcxx files. I did not have a lot of time to work on it, but I was successful in just using the official libcxx@6.X without tests.
Strangely the issue only happens when building the tests.  I have added FIXME where appropriate.
Previously I had a hand-rolled package strictly for the pyside2 toolchain which I removed.

Thank you, I fill-paragraphed.

I added much more detail from the salome-platform Med documentation.

I used the releases for coin3D and libspnav. I am worried now about coin3D because bitbucket is going to drop support for mercurial repos next year.

* Some further notes:
There are now several optional qt modules that are not correctly found when building pyside2.
I am not sure if this is a bug with pyside or our packages.  The package builds properly and freecad runs, though (supposing opencascade-occt will work).

All the patches are rebased to a pretty recent master (just a day or so ago). Thanks for all your help!
