Re: Experimental celestia-qt packages on openSuse-Build-Serv

Who is entitled to commit code changes in your new openSuSE repository? Everyone? Until now only me. But if you have an account on the Build Service, drop me a note and I will give you the rights. Moreover, can SuSE maintainers decide to eventually include such patched Celestia code from the OpenBu...

Re: Experimental celestia-qt packages on openSuse-Build-Serv

Don't forget that Celestia needs to run under Windows and MacOS, too. Will you be able to try building it under either of those? Alas I have no Windows or MacOS to test it. But the patches that I marked with a "*" don't harm the other systems. It's pure Qt4 stuff. There are no changes in ...

Experimental celestia-qt packages on openSuse-Build-Service

Hello, First, I don`t want to make a fork of Celestia and I don't want to harm the developers. My first intention was to fix some bugs but then I missed some features in the Qt4 GUI and I tried to implement them. BIG FAT WARNING The packages needs testing!!! They are high experimental! If you want t...

Qt4 GUI: segfault if initSimulation fails fixed

Hello, If CelestiaCore->initSimulation fails (configfile errors, spice initialization fails, reading of star catalogs etc.), you got an error message and celestia crashes immediately with an segmentation fault if it call functions that depends on correct initialization. The reason is that the return...

Re: configure --enable-debug - no debug messages

refsteff The side effect of this patch is you don't have to create an empty config.h file if you use qmake on Linux. This was wrong. You need to patch 10 more files. :oops: diff -urN celestia.org/src/buildstardb.cpp celestia/src/buildstardb.cpp --- celestia.org/src/buildstardb.cpp 2011-08-19 16:05:...

configure --enable-debug - no debug messages

Hello, I was testing celestia Qt4 GUI with different config files and for debugging I did a configure --with-qt --enable-debug. I realized that if the config file didn't exists / wasn't readable, I only got the "Error reading configuration file" message box and after clicking ok, celestia ...

Hello, after I've enabled localizations in Linux (celestia svn 5166 Qt4) and tried some addons, I realized the same behavior that was described here: http://www.shatters.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11690 but with stars (fictional or real). I've tried it with rthorvalds sun addons (with the upd...

Hello Vincent, As to the EventFinder issue, I didn't get any compilation error with MSVC++ 2008 Express, not even a compiler warning, which is quite strange... Maybe I have to point out clearer what I mean. The error message came from celestia. The method is not wrong , you get what you want :wink: ...

Hello, I wanted to start celestia (svn 5166) with a different data directory to see if my original costs performance. The command line interface is not ready (yet) :wink: , so I was setting the environment variable CELESTIA_DATA_DIR to point to the new directory. I got the message: "Celestia is...

Qt4 GUI: X11 wrong window pos stored in configfile

Hello, This bug depends on the X11 and window manager combination, so if you use X11 on other platforms, you can be affected too. If I maximize (no fullscreen) the celestia main window and quit, the values for pos in the config file are negative. You can read the explanation in the qt4 docs (applica...

Re: Qt4 GUI: timetoolbar is invisible on OpenSuse

Maybe Linux doesn't support compiled-in resources or is some extra initialization needed? Indeed I need some extra initialization and because I use the autoconf tools to build celestia, there is also a little change in the build system necessary. diff -urN celestia.org/src/celestia/qt/Makefile.am c...
