Thread: No updates for Gnucash?

  1. #1

    Default No updates for Gnucash?

    The latest version of Gnucash available in openSUSE - and I checked the
    Gnome factory repo - is 2.4.0. The latest version from Gnucash was
    announced on Sunday and that was 2.4.5. Admittedly 2.4.1 doesn't seem to
    have been released and 2.4.2 had a bug in Windows but 2.4.3 was released
    on 27th Feb. Any reason why openSUSE seems to be lagging behind?

    you seem to be under the impression that the openSUSE community's goal
    is to always have the latest release in the openSUSE repos..

    my impression is that there are only so many hands working and it is
    better to have something that works in the repo than something which no
    one has time to beta test..

    by the way, as far as i recall the 11.4 timeline, the code base was
    pretty much in concrete before LONG before 12 days prior to release
    (which is when you say Gnucash 2.4.3 was released..

    so, please define "lagging behind" in your neck of the woods..

    i think you are in the wrong distro if you wish to always have the very
    latest release on your machine, without having to compile some yourself..

    I am sure it will be updated for Factory and in Gnome:Apps in the next week or so. The Gnome team has been working hard on getting Gnome 3 in shape. Patience is a virtue

    I should have realised they had something else on their minds. My excuse
    is 36 hours without sleep due to bad back. Whatever slipped out of place
    seems to have slipped back so we're OK - until the next time.

    As suggested by DenverD, I built 2.4.5 from source but had a problem when
    I ran it:
    main: Error on gnc_gbr_init: Binary relocation support is disabled.
    /usr/local/bin/gnucash: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib/gnucash/
    libgncmod-gnome-utils.so: undefined symbol: qof_date_completion_set


    Then I looked elsewhere (http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/SuSE) and found
    2.4.4 here: http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...me%3A/j-engel/
