Update freerdp2
« on: September 04, 2019, 06:44:47 AM »
Hi!

Would it be possible to update freerdp2 to the latest version (2.0.0-rc4)?
Also, I think there is a mistake in freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep, it should depend on freerdp2 and not freerdp.

Regards

Hi zlik
Please state the architecture you are requesting this for (x86, x86_64, ARM6, ARM7).

Hi,

I use x86.

I'm working in parallel to update remmina.tcz for x86 to the latest version (I made the current available package 3 years ago). It now needs freerdp2 so it would be great if the latest version was available too. And because of the dependency problem on freerdp2-dev I need to explicitly install both freerdp2-dev and freerdp2 to build remmina.

Regards

Hi zlik
I forgot to mention this is for TC10?

You can edit your local copy of  freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep  to list  freerdp2.tcz  instead of  freerdp.tcz.  If you then reboot, loading
freerdp2-dev.tcz  will no longer load  freerdp.tcz.

Yes for TC 10.1.
I know I can edit the dep file, but fixing the problem upstream would be cleaner.

The suggestion was merely to prevent an unwanted extension from being loaded while you are building something. It will be
fixed upstream when an administrator sees this.

Is there a way for me to directly propose an update of the freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep file? The last time I submitted a new package I had to send it to an email address, but it was several years ago, maybe there is now a more "modern" way to submit changes, e.g. a git repository?

If you post the proposed change here, I’ll look at it next week.

Create a unified diff:
Code: [Select]
cd /etc/sysconfig/tcedir/optional
cp freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep.original
# Update your  freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep  file
diff -u freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep.original freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep > /home.tc/freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep.diff
rm freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep.original
Attach the  freerdp2-dev.tcz.dep.diff  file to your next post. Write a brief sentence or two about the change.

Hi @Juanito,

For the dependency problem, the change is very simple, you juste have to replace "freerdp.tcz" by "freerdp2.tcz" in freerdp2.tcz.dep.
And also it would be nice to update freerdp2 to the latest version 2.0.0-rc4.
Thanks.
