Re: FreeCAD on PI4 and Raspbian Buster.

I didn't try to actually do anything, I just loaded the GUI, I thought that was what at least some people were having trouble with.

Re: FreeCAD on PI4 and Raspbian Buster.

Can people who have had trouble with the freecad GUI try updating their systems and trying again. I just tried it on a fully updated buster and it seems to run. I think it may have been fixed by a recent LLVM fix I uploaded.

It looks like Debian only build cross compilers on i386, amd64, arm64 and ppc64el.

Scroll down to the "other sellers on amazon" section on many of those links and you find amazon themselves, but the listings from amazon themselves say "usually within 1-2 months".

Re: vlc-nox package no longer available?

vlc-nox in stretch was a transitional package depending on vlc-bin and vlc-plugin-base, in buster the transitional package is gone but vlc-bin and vlc-plugin-base are still available.

Re: I dont get it... Why is everyone from science schools so obsessed with Perl and Python when we got C?

Languages like python just lets you get stuff done far more easily than C (or even C++). You can run the code immediately rather than having a compile step. You can even experiment with calling functions interactively and inspecting the results. You can just write the code to do what you want to do ...

Re: When does Amazon recieve the new Raspberry Pi's?

Amazon do seem to sell the raspberry pi directly, though they usually seem to get undercut by third party sellers on their platform and they don't seem to have stock of Pi4s right now.

Re: how does raspbian repo sync with debian repo and then customization some packages

basically reprepro in combination with a bunch of custom tooling. Some of that tooling is available at https://github.com/plugwash/raspbian-tools/ but a bunch is kept privately.

Autobuilding is handled by wanna-build and buildd like Debian does.

`php-smbclient` pulls in PHP7.2 dependencies, even though Buster defaults to PHP7.3. Or regular Debian, `php-smbclient` does not pull in PHP7.2, but depends on PHP7.3.
Looking at this.

Re: FreeCAD on PI4 and Raspbian Buster.

depends if I can get it to build or not.

I think the linker stuff was a red herring, it only seems to be a warning, not an actual error. I think I have a fix for the opengl related error. Lets see if it fails in some other way.

Can you be more specific? Debian backport's security patches so an older upstream version number doesn't nessacerally indicate that bugs are still present.

And there is also the question of who is responsible for intialising the PCIe bus and assigning addresess to devices, does the firmware do it or does the OS need to.

Re: Dependency problem; can't install libcaca-dev

It seems this is an issue of a lack of coordination between different teams in Debian. The maintainer of libcaca has not touched the package in a long time. There were no uploads to the package between June 2014 and January 2019. So prior to January 2019 jessie, stretch and buster all had the same v...

Re: Missing freerdp library on Debian Buster

It was removed from Debian buster/sid some time back due to being "an old version and
also has several RC bugs open", the replacement seems to be freerdp2-dev, I don't know how much porting is needed to move software over though.
