GNUstep 2.6.6 for openSUSE 12.3
This repository gives openSUSE 12.3 users a quick and easy way of
setting up a GNUstep installation, without the need to compile from
It also provides users of the latest One Step to GNUstep Virtual
Machine (version 0.9.6) with a means of updating their installed
It contains binary packages for both 32-bit (i586) and 64-bit (x86_64)
hardware. There are three variants — one for each of these
* GCC/libobjc2 and
The packages are configured to follow the UNIX/Linux FHS file-system
layout, so the software is installed in the places where you would
expect to find it in an openSUSE system.
Where to Get It
The packages and documentation are in an openSUSE-style repository at:
See 'Installing GNUstep 2.6.6 on openSUSE 12.3' at:
for installation instructions.
Changes from Previous Version
The main changes from the previous version (gnustep-make 2.6.5) are:
1. Based on the latest stable GNUstep packages at the time of writing
(gnustep-make-2.6.6, gnustep-base-1.24.6, gnustep-gui-0.24.0,
gnustep-back-0.24.0 etc). Some SVN/CVS versions of packages are
included on an experimental basis.
2. The packages built with the Clang compiler, both 64-bit and 32-bit,
were compiled using Clang version 3.3.
1. These packages were built using gnustep-make version 2.6.6 and
configured for an FHS file system layout. They are not compatible
with older versions of GNUstep, or with GNUstep software configured
for the Windows, Mac or GNUstep traditional file system layouts.
2. This release is intended for use on openSUSE 12.3. It is unlikely
that it will work on other releases, due to numerous differences in
compilers, libraries and release contents.
3. The Clang versions were built with --enable-objc-nonfragile-abi.
4. The 32-bit packages should be compatible with most current 32-bit
x86 machines. They were compiled with -march=i586 and have been
tested (to a limited extent) on a 32-bit machine that does not have
the SSE2 extensions.
Known Bugs and Limitations
1. If, after installing these packages and enabling Metadata Indexing,
you revert to a version of GWorkspace that does not support this
feature, the mdextractor window may appear and then hang. To avoid
this, you should disable Metadata Indexing — do this before
changing your GWorkspace, or (if you omitted to do so) type the
following in a Terminal window:
defaults write NSGlobalDomain GSMetadataIndexingEnabled 0
2. The version of Zipper included in this release may not correctly
create or extract from lha archives if filenames beginning with a
‘-’ sign are used. This depends on the version of lha (or lhasa)
installed on your system.
