Thread: Where's GRAMPS?

  1. #1

    Default Where's GRAMPS?

    Looks like this has gone walkabout. It used to be in the Education repo
    - and still is but is missing several updates. This repo has also gone
    missing from wiki pages and from list of community repos in YAST. Seems
    a bit suspicious as though something has been changed again.

    Is GRAMPS now in a different repo or is it no longer supported in openSUSE?

    Is Education repo defunct?

    The Education version of Gramps is there : OBS search 11.2 and gramps and find it on page 3 and the repo is here. I downloaded it recently, but it's not the latest version in OBS. The wiki page went sometime ago now, I assume it was out of date.

    Yes, I did say that Gramps was still on the Education repo but was
    out-of-date. I wondered, as the Education repo is no longer being
    advertised and no longer appears in the community repo list in YAST,
    whether it was being phased out in preference for a different one. It
    wouldn't be the first time that changes to repos are slipped in without
    us customers finding out about it for some time.

    Gramps can be obtained from their website directly too

    openSUSE application s/w is often "out-of-date". I refer to the real apps in oss repo and non-oss, as different from tools & accessories that in Windows for example come with the OS. When was Gramps ever "supported" by the openSUSE project? Some other distros include it, but often don't update it between distro releases. We were lucky that someone in the community provided such a good and free application, even though not the very latest version. From the OBS, I never regarded Gramps as "official" even from Education. Now their version is not the most recent in OBS. It looks as if we only have that from a community member's home repo now.

    I never understood why openSUSE-gnome hasn't included Gramps in the distro's main repo, particularly when Gnome's application suite was limited. It has improved now, but Genealogy is still one of the popular applications across the internet. IMO it remains a missed opportunity. Gramps works well on KDE, although it has quite a heavy dependency on gtk packages.
