Fedora 19 RPMS for Enlightenment 0.17.4 and EFL 1.7.8

03 Aug

I am putting the finishing touches on the Feodra 19 RPMS. When you start you will want to disable the splash screen. Read this post in the e-users mailing list. I had the issue when i was testing and found that post with the solution for now.


Stephen Haffly reported this issue to me:

Your display server does not support XComposite, or Ecore-X was built 
without XComposite support.
Note that for composite support you will also need XRender and XFixes 
support in X11 and Ecore.


I have fixed that with the builds. Also someone talked about dual screens being used as one big screen. That is also fixed. When i resolved the build issue that Stephen reported that issue was resolved as well.


I also fixed the Connman Obsolete issue. So you should be able to have both NetworkManager and Connman installed at the same time.

I do not have a Fedora 18 machine, but if i get enough requests i can easily build these packages for 18 as well. Just let me know if you thing it's worth while. Fedora 17 i will not be building packages for, unless someone pays me. :-D

Thanks for using Enligtenment and providing me feedback to make the packages and apps work better. I am looking at packaging up some of the games that are developed with EFL.

Enlightenment Fedora 19 Repo

08 Jul

I am working on the builds for Fedora 19. I have the x86_64 machine built, need to do the i686 and get the packages going. I want to have them done by Tuesday July 9th. I will update this post when it is complete.

Update: Mon Jul  8 16:07:05 CDT 2013

I just finished the builds for Fedora 19 x86_64. I will do the i686 builds tomorrow. Please those that have x86_64 machines try out the build and let me know if you have any issues.

Update: Tue Jul  9 21:57:37 CDT 2013

The i686 build is done and on the server. You can update and let me know if you have issues.

Update: Wed Jul 10 07:43:44 CDT 2013

I forgot to build Terminology. So that has been added. Also i don't have a repo rpm for Fedora19, so use

for now.

Update: Fri Jul 12 14:23:18 CDT 2013

It was mentioned in the comments that i had forgotten a few packages. So i just built and uploaded python-elementary, econnman, and connman-1.15. Please give them a try and keep the feedback comming.

Fedora RPMS for Enlightenment 0.17.3 and EFL 1.7.7

18 May

I just finished the builds for Enlightenment 0.17.3 and EFL 1.7.7. I keep getting the pop-up telling me that there was a newer version of Enlightenment out, so that was my reminder to do the builds this weekend. I hope i didn't miss anything this time. Everything has been rebuilt and i also added in a new e_module slideshow. (This was a request from a person that uses my repo. So if you want something from Enlightenment that i don't have just ask for it. I will do my best to get it built and added to the repo.)

I know i said the last built would be the final one for Fedora 17, however 1.7.7 came out before i upgraded so i have one more build for the x86_64 version of Fedora 17.  And i have not yet configured a virtual machine to do the Fedora 19 builds. Maybe before the next release i will get that done.

Sorry this build took a week, i have been sick all week and not feeling like putting in extra hours after work. However i am feeling much better. I think i have everything uploaded and correct this time. I am sure i will hear if i am missing anything.

I also built  connman-1.14 for this release as well.

Off Topic

Well now i am off to work on the Android app for the accounting software i have been developing. I hope to get something done with it this weekend. However the day is getting late and i have some things outside i want to get done. I will post some screen-shots of my app. Not sure if anyone would be interested in it. I should put it in a different post, so with that said i will stop talking about it.

Fedora RPMS for Enlightenment and EFL 1.7.6x

28 Apr

Sorry this one took longer, however it's up on the repo. This is the Enlightenment release and the 1.7.6x of EFL. I have not tested this build, i am going to pull it down to my local machines and see how it goes. I built new Python bindings and all the modules that i had before. I hope i didn't miss any. If so let me know in the comments.


This will be my final build of for Fedora 17. I am planning on upgrading my machine to either 18 or 19 here soon. Yes 19 is not out yet, but the alpha is so i know a release might happen before i get my machine updated. Also i need to purchase a new laptop. Anyway enjoy the build and let me know if you have issues.

UPDATE: Fri May 10 16:41:27 CDT 2013

So i forgot to build enlightenment and then when i did i uploaded it and forgot to update the repo database. Well that has been done. You might need to run a yum clean all. Well "all" is what i have run. I am sure someone will comment to let me know exactly which option i should give yum clean. I hear that the 1.7.7 libs will be out soon. So maybe this weekend i will have a working and good build system.

UPDATE: Sat May  4 08:59:17 CDT 2013

It was reported that eina-1.7.6 was missing. This i found was only for the Fedora 18 x86_64 release. I have fixed that and uploaded the rpm. Hopefully for this release we don't have any more issues.

UPDATE: Mon Apr 29 20:13:39 CDT 2013

I have fixed connman so that it does not Obsolete NetworkManager. Also Macfly reported an issues with eeze. I have fixed that package and uploaded a new version. Enjoy the Enlightenment goodness. Also this is the last version for Fedora 17. I will be doing only Fedora 18 and 19 from now on. I might put 19 up for the 1.7.6 EFL release. I will see how much time i get to devote to the build.

UPDATE: Mon Apr 29 07:25:53 CDT 2013

I am going to rebuild connman and not obsolete NetworkManager. It will cause issues when you try and update. I am sorry about this unforeseen side effect. I will have the rebuilt package up tonight.
