7.24.0 is now up.
MD5sum is "ecd94dfaf0b980776c589bb9337a6786" according to sourceforge, and the source can be downloaded using the same source array.

adding "-DBRLCAD_BUNDLED_LIBS=ON" config option should fix it

I really don't have time to properly figure this out, so I'll orphan so someone can take over.

Tcl8.6 now bundles itcl which is where the initial problem occurs. That needs to be resolved in brlcad. I'm not sure if the brlcad can work with the Tcl verion of itcl or not.

If you build with all bundled libs in brlcad, you'll need to remove /etc/ [last line of the package() function] so the system doesn't load the conflicting libraries.

You'll also need to define LD_LIBRARY_PATH when running brlcad programs so they can find the proper libraries. It's a bit of a tricky situation.

Turns out it wasn't such a great idea - after a reboot, firefox wouldn't run, complaining about libpng:
firefox: relocation error: /usr/lib/firefox/ symbol png_get_first_frame_is_hidden, version PNG15_0 not defined in file with link time reference

Vim would spit this out each time it was started:

vim: /opt/brlcad/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib/
vim: /opt/brlcad/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib/
vim: /opt/brlcad/lib/ no version information available (required by /usr/lib/

After removing brlcad these problems went away.

I am quite lost.

After a recent tk update brlcad won't start anymore, throwing this:

/opt/brlcad/bin/../bin/bwish: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Rebuilding it also failed with this:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:456 (_message):
Could not find at least one of Tcl, Itcl or Tk libraries in /usr/lib,
/usr/lib/itcl4.0.0, and /usr/lib - please specify the parent directory for
the libraries in the TCL_BIN_PREFIX variable (e.g. ${TCL_BIN_PREFIX}/lib)
Call Stack (most recent call first):
src/other/incrTcl/itk/CMakeLists.txt:81 (MESSAGE)

I added -DBRLCAD_BUNDLED_LIBS=ON option to cmake to get it to compile.

brlcad 7.22.0-1 up.

louipc commented on 2012-06-12 04:32

brlcad 7.20.6-1
With upstream recommended patches.
brlcad 7.22.0 should be coming soon though.

The only things needed to build the newest one is to change the version and md5sum lines:

Removed --as-needed from LDFLAGS and I was able to build and install the package.
