|0001905||ThirdParty||[All Projects] Bug||public||2015-11-07 20:32||2015-11-08 00:43|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001905: Please recover makeQt et al from 2.4.x to at least 3.0.x|
|Description||I had noticed in the past that "makeQt" was dropped in "ThirdParty-dev", but I didn't think much of it since we can always get the necessary script files form 2.4.x.|
But as requested on this thread: http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/openfoam-installation/162236-removed-qt-thirdparty-3-0-disables-paraview-rhel6.html - I also request that this is brought back at least for 3.0.x, although it's a bit too late for the ThirdParty-3.0.0 package :(
Even though Qt 4.8 is now a somewhat outdated technology (Qt is already at 5.5!), ParaView 4.4 still heavily depends on it. Support for Qt 5 is still somewhat experimental in ParaView/VTK.
The files in question that we request to be brought back are as follows:
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I was not aware that people were still building Qt from sources for ParaView. Having more than one Qt version on a system causes all sorts of pain and should be avoided if at all possible. Also I removed the scripts from OpenFOAM-dev some time ago and it didn't cause any issues for anyone so I assumed they were no longer needed.
I will reinstate them in OpenFOAM-3.0.x as requested but I would like to drop support for them as soon as possible.
To anyone still using RHEL-6 I would strongly recommend upgrading to RHEL-7 which resolves issues associated with the rather ancient Qt, gcc and other software on RHEL-6.
