Mandriva used to ( at least up to Mandriva 2010.1 ) have xforms included as part
of the package. I have the  .src.rpm that with the xforms.spec
file and I do not think much would have changed except the version of the
file. -- they had 1.0.93sp1 It would be easy to create a spec file following that for the new package.

I just compiled the old version from that spec file ( well removing a couple
of tests for old version of Mandriva) and it built fine on my Mageia 3 distro.

I just changed the .spec file to use the new 1.2.4 version and it seems to be
have compiled fine. Mind you the result does not work-- fdesign gives me a black window which is
hard to kill, so I am doing something wrong, or some library is wrong.

Hi Frank,

That's kind of you! But doesn't RHEL/Centos ship XForms anymore?

To the best of my knowledge, no. Unless I'm missing something which is not
beyond the realm of possibility either.

The rpmforge repo provides an outdated version of xforms (1.0.91) for Centos
6, but I don't think anyone provides it for Centos 7 at all. Until now, that

In that case I would be inclined to add that to the page at
<http://xforms-toolkit.org>. At the moment it states that there
are no DEP/RPM packages, but if you're willing to host it I'd
add a link there. For that case: would you mind adding an <anchor>
tag to make it easier to find on the page?
