Description Nicolas Pomarède 2015-05-06 15:29:01 CEST

Under mageia4, I installed fs-uae-launcher-2.2.3-4.mga4.noarch.rpm, which required a few other packages :

  fs-uae                         2.2.3        4.mga4        i586    
  fs-uae-launcher                2.2.3        4.mga4        noarch  
  libSDL_image1.2_0              1.2.12       4.mga4        i586    
  libSDL_mixer1.2_0              1.2.12       5.mga4        i586    
  libSDL_ttf2.0_0                2.0.11       3.mga4        i586    
  libmikmod3                     3.3.4        1.mga4        i586    
  libsmpeg0.4_0                  0.4.5        5.mga4        i586    
  python-pygame                  1.9.1        10.mga4       i586    
  wxPython                  5.mga4        i586    
  wxPython-wxversion        5.mga4        i586    

But when running fs-uae-laucnher, I got this error :

FS-UAE Launcher 2.2.3
System: ('Linux', 'pulsar', '3.14.32-server-1.mga4', '#1 SMP Sat Feb 7 01:03:42 UTC 2015', 'i686', 'i686')

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/fs_uae_launcher/fsui/wx/image.py", line 7, in <module>
    import pkg_resources
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources

-> the rpm python-pkg-resources is missing
After installing python-pkg-resources-1.3-1.1.mga4.noarch.rpm , fs-uae-launcher now starts without error.

Please, update the rpm to add this dependancy.

Another unmaintained pacakge.  CC'ing last committers.

Looks like fs-uae-launcher needs a Requires: python-pkg-resources, easy fix.

CC: (none) => dan, makowski.mageia
Version: 4 => Cauldron
Whiteboard: (none) => MGA4TOO

Comment 2 Nicolas Pomarède 2015-05-06 16:08:07 CEST
Note : there's also a problem under mageia5 / cauldron

When starting fs-uae-launcher, the program fails because it can't import "wx", but wxPython is correctly installed.

Could this be an incompatibility with wxPython 3 shipped in cauldron/mageia5 ? (mageia 4 uses wxPython 2.8)
Comment 3 Samuel Verschelde 2015-05-06 16:11:43 CEST
This would be worth a second bug report.
Comment 4 Rémi Verschelde 2015-05-06 17:00:22 CEST
I'll handle the missing Requires.
Please open another bug report for the wxPython issue in Cauldron, maybe the simplest solution would be to update Cauldron to the latest upstream release, the current one is from 2013...

Comment 5 Nicolas Pomarède 2015-05-06 17:05:49 CEST
I will open a separate BR for the cauldron version ; I agree it would be better to have latest version of fs-uae before mageia5 is released, but as cauldron is frozen at the moment, I'm not sure it can happen.
Comment 6 Rémi Verschelde 2015-05-06 17:15:26 CEST
Pushed fs-uae-2.2.3-4.1.mga4 to Mageia 4 Core Updates Testing with the added Requires.

Let's assign this bug for the Mageia 4 update only, I'll handle the Cauldron issues in another bug report (comment 0 + comment 2).
Comment 7 Rémi Verschelde 2015-05-06 17:19:30 CEST

Updated fs-uae packages fix missing dependency

  The python GUI for the fs-uae Amiga emulator was missing an explicit dependency
  on the python-pkg-resources package, preventing to start it if the package was
  not already pulled in otherwise (mga#15859). This update fixes it.

Version: Cauldron => 4
Whiteboard: MGA4TOO => (none)

Comment 8 Rémi Verschelde 2015-05-06 17:21:36 CEST
Testing procedure:

If you don't have python-pkg-resources installed due to another package, fs-uae-launcher should fail to start with the error in comment 0.

The update candidate should pull in the required package, and the launcher should then start properly.
