OpenCASCADE 6.3.0 for Fedora and EL

Quoting from its home page "Open CASCADE is a powerful CAD/CAM/CAE kernel and development platform for 3D modeling applications". Few open-source application like FreeCAD and HeeksCAD are already using OpenCASCADE as their 3D modelling framework and it would be good to have OpenCASCADE packaged in Fedora-compatible way. Unfortunately due some issues in the license it's considered not free enough for Fedora. A lot of packaging work has already been done by the Debian maintainers so I have used their patches and package layout, some of the patches were improved by me and few new ones were created and all were sent back to share the work. Fedora packages are now available in my repository, packages for RHEL/CentOS 5 will follow tomorrow (it takes some time to upload GBs of data on Asymetric DSL with 512 kbit upload). Also available is HeeksCAD package, so you can see it really works. I expect that OpenCASCADE will land in the RPM Fusion repository in the near future and it live there until the licensing issues are cleared and it can accepted into Fedora directly.

Thanks a lot
Thanks a lot for the great work. Hopefully can we soon expect a package of Salome-Platform http://www.salome-platform.org/ and OpenFOAM http://www.openfoam.com/ (it is unrelated to opencascade) or code saturne and code aster. I see the science/engineering SIG ml is somewhat inactive. Where can i track the scientific packages in fedora.
Thanks again for the great work :)

Overtaken :-)
I was planning to release my own package of OpenCascade for Fedora (mock step) when I read your post. This is a really good job you've done. You've made a better work of subdivision than me. However, I've integrated the sp8 of OpenCascade we can found in Salome-platform.
I think we should merge our work and co-maintain this package together.

@pankaj86, I'm working on a packaging of Salome-platform. Hope that those package will come quickly ;-).
I didn't know OpenFOAM but it looks really interesting. I will see what I can do.

Re: Overtaken :-)
co-maintainers are always gladly welcomed :-) The content splitting copies what the debian maintainers did with the exception that there are no separate libs-foo-devel subpackages, but only a common one.

Re: Overtaken :-)
Great Work! Thanks.

Any plans of packaging FreeCAD (http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/free-cad/index.php?title=Main_Page)?

Re: Overtaken :-)
Also, any dialog with RPMFusion to put OpenCASCADE in it?

Re: Overtaken :-)
I wanted to gather some reactions from the community before submitting to RPM Fusion.

Any chance to install FreeCAD on F12 ?
Trying to install FreeCAD-0.9.2646-2.x86_64.rpm from official FreeCAD source forge site with OpenCASCADE flavor from your repository. But have dependency problems :

FreeCAD-0.9.2646-2.x86_64 requires libCoin.so.60()(64bit)
FreeCAD-0.9.2646-2.x86_64 requires libxcb-xlib.so.0()(64bit)

Sorry, Libboost 1.40 is only on F13 !

I'll try to upgrade to F13 and see if it work...

Wow, great to see OCC making it's way to Fedora!

I hope this opens up an opportunity to also get pythonOCC in together with FreeCAD etc.

Qt application

I'm working in Fedora14 64b with Qt4 and opencascade 6.3 thank you very much for the packages, great work!

I compiled the Qt sample application but then when executing the "new command button" I get a segmentation fault error.
The error is produced when executing "new Graphic3d_GraphicDevice( aDisplay )" in "DocumentCommon.cxx", I tried also compiling the version QtOpenCascade from http://sourceforge.net/projects/qtocc/ but I get the same error.

Have you been around this problem?, or maybe an idea on how to solve it?

Thank you in advance
