"Official" binary for Linux

I think Avogadro should provide “official” binary for 1.1.0 to work on most distributions with recent OB included. Not every Linux user is developer, and not everybody wants to compile from sources, I think this would increase user base for testing of unstable releases

Konstantin

This would be great but we currently don’t have anyone who knows how
to do this (or has the time to learn). Any help regarding this would
be very welcome.

FYI Avogadro 1.0.0 is already available on official Fedora 12 repository and
I know an earlier version is available on Ubuntu distros. Don’t know about
other distros. Maybe this could be pointed out on the website with info on
how to install? i.e. on Fedora you type “su -c ‘yum install avogadro’” or if
you use sudo it’s “sudo yum install avogadro” and on Ubuntu you type “sudo
apt-get install avogadro”.

Best, Magnus

Whoops accidentally only sent it to Tim… sorry.

  1. It’s already documented (but link to this page is not in central place of page, it’ll be fixed soon)
  2. My proposition was about “official”, not 3rd party build. Distributions may have different versions of library dependencies, so binaries may work differently. Moreover, 1.1.x series will probably not be packaged by major distribution because of unstable status (or will be packaged with OB 2.2.3, so users will not be able to try several new features)

Best, Magnus

Perhaps we could even provide packages containing additional plugins.
But again, someone just has to do it… :slight_smile:

It’s becoming relatively popular these days to have nightly build
scripts for Ubuntu packages using Launchpad’s PPAs. I was wanting to
set one up for Avogadro but have lacked the time to get it going. It’s
certainly possible though.

I think Windows deployment experience can help.
I’m trying to build “universal” package now using static Qt 4.6.2 (built with minimum of system libs), but it seems to be linked to every plugin library. Probably, dynamic linking is needed. Have you any ideas how to create proper package containing Qt and OB as dynamic libraries?

As for distribution-specific packages, I think Suse Build Service is a great thing. It can build packages for many distros (including OpenSUSE, Fedora, Mandriva, Debian, Ubuntu) using dependencies from their repositories
