RPM available for OpenSUSE Leap15.2

Has somebody done an RPM for Horizon-EDA? I installed it on a Win7 machine with remote desktop and get an open GL missing error. On my OpenSUSE machine I cannot get it to run correctly. Just do not recall the error. Compiling does not work either. There is something with files missing. I read about a problem with older GCC. But did not get any further.

I desperately need a successor for my old Protel suite because it requires at least WinXP or older. Actually I try KiCAD and am really pissed about the “user experiance”. Anyway, it does not make any sense to start a new design with OrcadWin6 and Protel PCB2.8. But with KiCAD I needed days for things I did in hours with my old tools.

Once (mounths ago) I got it running a little and think it is the best I have seen in my 35years CAD on almost a dozend different systems.

So please help me.


PS: Actually I need to run it on OpenSUSE Leap15.2 because this machine also runs a RAID-Z2 server. Later I maybe want to run it on a RASPI4 or RockPi with at least 4GB of RAM.

PPS: All machines run KDE. Gnome is prio one KO criteria. I would rather stop working than using Gnome. Maybe XFCE late. But that was not available on Leap15.2 while RAID-Z e.g. was not available on Leap15.3.

In Horizon EDA [War: Neues, halbfertiges Elektronik-CAD-Programm] - Mikrocontroller.net people managed to build it on opensuse.

If you post the error message, this should be an easy fix. Did you install all dependencies listed on Building on Linux — horizon-eda 1.0 documentation?

I’m not sure of the current state of non-ES OpenGL on these platforms and Horizon EDA requires OpenGL 3.3 with extensions or OpenGL 4.

This could be the Windows issue. I recall that even in front of the Windows PC I had graphics problems. So it might not be worth to try VNC.

My experience with Linux is very poor now. Beside the fact that filesystems are not robust and will kill you a RAID6 if you cannot cleanly shut down the machine because a Moron has messed up audio with the messed up screen blanker doing a multi user multi machine environment is not possible like expected.

And every time rdesktop works fine someone fucks it up. Not worth to mention clipboard sharing.

I am talking too much.

Do you intend to support a central SQL server as an option for the libraries instead of the local SQLite? Or am I mixing things up?
