Thread: Compiling/Installing FreeCAD

  1. #1

    Default Compiling/Installing FreeCAD

    I downloaded the source files for FreeCAD 0.16. Now I want to compile it for Debian on OpenSUSE.

    The video says I'm supposed to upload the files. There are probably hundreds of files for FreeCAD. My system won't allow me to simply point to the directory with all the files in it, and individually pointing to hundreds of files isn't practical. How is this supposed to be done?

    Hi
    Use the openSUSE Build Service and link to the one in the science project (or copy) to you own build project and tweak for debian builds...
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...ackage=FreeCAD

    https://build.opensuse.org/
    http://openbuildservice.org/

    There are undoubtedly some directions I missed somewhere.

    As suggested, I went to Science and found a current stable version of FreeCAD (0.16). Seeing no other choices, I selected SUBMIT PACKAGE and filled in the form. An hour later my request was rejected. There was probably good reason to reject the request, but I have no idea what the reason was. Going to SCIENCE gave me easy access to FreeCAD, but I saw no way to select Debian as an operating system. Again, I haven't found any directions showing how to do this correctly.

    Hi
    You need to create an OBS account (first link), then once you home project is setup, copy the package, create you target reporitory (debian?), add the relevant pkg build(?) files and let it build. Else ask the science maintainers to enable debian builds?
