PySide packages for openSUSE, Mandriva and Fedora

As some are already aware of, I’ve been packaging PySide (including apiextractor, generatorrunner, and boostpythongenerator) for openSUSE since the project has been publicly announced.

Not only stable/released versions have been packaged, but also snapshots taken from mainline git repository with both built and hosted on the openSUSE Build Service in my home dir there (home:cgoncalves:pyside and home:cgoncalves:pyside:devel).

Yesterday I took some time updating the snapshots (ie. home:cgoncalves:pyside:devel) to now build against shiboken instead of the not-yet former boostpythongenerator. Apiextractor, generatorrunner and shiboken built successfully, while PySide did not because I’ve tried to build it with Qt 4.6 but due to bug #124 it failed, and in the meantime I’ve switched it back to Qt 4.5.

Moreover, I’m expanding this packaging work to other distributions namely Fedora 11, Fedora 12, Mandriva 2009.1, and Mandriva 2010 sharing the same specfile with openSUSE 11.1, openSUSE 11.2, and openSUSE Factory that already live there for quite some time.

Everything have been built okay for these distributions, except on Mandriva 2009.1 and openSUSE 11.1 where PySide (only) is failing (older gcc version version issues I suppose) and on Fedora 11 i586 and openSUSE 11.2 i586 with PySide failing, too, but due to bug #111

So, in case you are interested in testing these non-openSUSE packages, which I didn’t I may add, please do so and report back to me whether they are okayish or not.

Finally, keep in mind that for now I’m only referring to repository home:cgoncalves:pyside:devel (snapshots) and not to stable versions. Plus, you won’t get yet a full featured Python bindings for Qt since the PySide team is under heavy work on completing the QtCore module first with Shiboken before moving forward to other modules.
