Hi all!

I'm trying to build the buoh comic reader for centos 6 and my head is
getting tired of repeated forceful contact with the wall.

I built it on 5.6 without undue problems, but somehow 6.0 is beating me.
(and no, the 5.6 binary doesn't work, at least not without a lot of
futzing around, on 6.0. tried that first.)

before I give gory details, has anyone already done this, from whom
maybe I could get packages? or advice?

it wants libsoup. fine, we got libsoup. but it seems to want version
2.2, while what we have comes in libsoup-2.28.*.rpm which seems to actually
deliver /usr/lib/libsoup-2.4.xxxx.so. Go figure.

The configure script refuses to deal with libsoup-2.4. so I look at what
pkgconfig thinks the installed libsoup is, hack the configure script
to look for that version and voila!

ok, so now to do "make", which chokes on the first (only) file that
includes any libsoup headers. it claims it can't find SoupURI, but
it's "right there"!!. I've followed the chain of header file directories,
heck, I've even compiled that one file with "-E" and verified that
it expands to the right code. I can't see why it's complaining!

can any of you see whatever the stupid thing is I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

    maybe you should compile with -static on centos5.6 after that you try in
    on centos6?

    That sounds a reasonable suggestion. Compile as a static
    binary on 5.6, so all the required files to run buoh are
    built into the binary. That way the buoh binary will not be
    looking for any other external missing files on C6.

    (That's the type of Skype binary I use on C5.6)

    It makes the program file a bit larger, but if it works does
    it really matter?

    The only other problem that comes to mind is if there are
    kernel symbols missing from the C6 kernel, that were in the
    C5 kernel.

    Kind Regards,

    Keith Roberts

    If you just need a reader for cbz and similar files, comix is available
    in repoforge. (I realize this doesn't answer your question at all, but
    in case that's all you need, comix has always worked reasonably well for
    me.)

    Well, it can find SoupURI, but not SoupUri as it's written in the buoh code. In libsoup-2.4 there seem to be a
    number of changes in the code compared to version 2.2. The code in buoh is obviously not adopted to these changes.

    hostname 291% grep -i soupuri src/*
    src/buoh-comic-loader.c: SoupUri *soup_uri = soup_uri_new (proxy_uri);

    hostname 295% grep -i soupuri /usr/include/libsoup-2.4/libsoup/soup-uri.h | grep struct
    struct _SoupURI {


    Updating the buoh code to SoupURI fix the SoupUri error. The other errors becomes trickier. It's too much
    efforts to fix that. Skip the compilation on C6. Instead file a report at http://buoh.steve-o.org/ and follow
    the suggestions to compile a static binary on C5.6. Hopefully that will work on C6.

    I have now checked the website for buoh. The project is now mantained in the GNOME git repository
    (http://git.gnome.org/browse/buoh/). It has been adopted for libsoup-2.4 but also for gtk+3. The problem for
    C6 is that gtk+3 is not available. It is available in Fedora14 or higher.

    Build a static binary on 5.6 and use that one or change comic reader.

    Thanks to all those who suggested doing a static build.

    Either I'm still failing to understand something, or else a static
    build isn't possible... it builds a binary exactly the same size as a
    "normal" build, which "ldd buoh" reports with the same lengthy list of
    required shared objects. For the small number of them that I examined,
    there doesn't seem to be a libfoo.a, only the libfoo.so.
    (tried passing flags to configure to force a static build, to no
    avail, so I manually hacked all the Makefiles and added "-static"
    to all the CFLAGS and XXXX_CFLAGS variables.)

    so I took a different approach:
    copy over /usr/include/libsoup-2.2 from centos 5.6 to 6.0, as well as all
    the libsoup items from /usr/lib.

    ran ./configure and it didn't report any problems.

    ran "make" and it compiled a pile of .c files, then attempted to link
    buoh itself, which produces a couple dozen errors about undefined
    references to things in gnutls
    (gnutls_certificate_set_x509_key_file at GNUTLS_1_3',
    gnutls_record_send at GNUTLS_1_3, gnutls_init at GNUTLS_1_3, gnutls_certificate_free_credentials at GNUTLS_1_3, etc., etc.)

    I haven't yet also tried copying over all the gnutls files from 5.6
    to 6.0, but I guess that's my next step.

    or maybe I'll put it on the back burner til I get reduced frustration! :(

    Another thought: all the libsoup stuff is isolated to a single source
    file. wonder if it's possible to take the that one file from GIT
    and use it to replace the same file from the last release, thereby
    removing the requirement for libsoup-2.2, and have a snowball's
    chance of compiling (and working)... nah, I don't suppose so....

    Or buckle down and learn something about libsoup and patch it up
    myself.
