How do I get configure to see the bindings? I'm optimistic it will compile and run as soon as that's sorted out.

2.2.8 doesn't seem to do anything: it prints out on console that it doesn't have the spell checker but never displays a window or anything.

We are working on a new port file. I will upload it here in a few days for you to try.

comment:3 Changed 12 years ago by rjt-gramps@…

I have attached a Portfile and patch for gramps 3.0.0. If I get some feedback that it works I will ask for it to be committed. Gamps 3.0.1 is about to come out, so if that works I will probably just jump straight to that.


comment:4 Changed 12 years ago by paulbeard@…

Excellent. I'll see if it builds and runs. I agree on waiting til 3.0.1: makes sense.

Thanks for getting to this.

comment:5 Changed 12 years ago by paulbeard@…

Works fine, looks good. One gotcha (not related to the port so much as to the source): importing old data works in their portable XML format, but not as a direct import of an old database. If that is reproducible, the upstream folks should be advised and anyone who uses the port will want to know.

comment:6 Changed 12 years ago by rjt-gramps@…

It is a known limitation of the database engine that is used in Gramps or at least it is a feature of the changes that have been made to the database model between version 2 and version 3. The user must export their data into the Gramps XML format before upgrading to 3.0.0.

I am not sure what the best way of informing people is? I can send an email to the Mac ports mailing list, but I doubt that many gramps users are on that list.

Any suggestions.

comment:7 Changed 12 years ago by paulbeard@…

So it's a feature, not a bug?

I think your obligations are discharged if you put it in the info of the Portfile (maybe in 1.7, there could be a pre-flight option that allows a user to abort based on some question?) and remind the folks upstream that not everyone knows that the 2.0 database is not directly importable (the import module didn't work for me: I had to go to another system with 2.x installed and export a gpkg file).

Cheers. I'm glad you got 3.x up and going.

This port has now been tested by a few people.

It is ready to go, but I do not have commit access so I can not get it added.

Can an admin please commit the port?
