Known Errors In Kexi Packages: Archive

This is an archive. Read the current document.

0.8 Stable (bundled with KOffice 1.4)

SuSE Linux 10.x

Author: SuSE Team Reported by: staniek@kde.org

Problem1: SQLite-related errors in Kexi package (KOffice 1.4.1)

Status: fixed in 1.0

Kexi has bundled its own version of SQLite 2 and 3. I can see you removed it and added a dependency on reguilar sqlite package. This will cause crashes and/or nonworking Kexi features, like sqlite2->sqlite3 conversions. Compatibility with sqlite2 is thus broken.

Decision for bundling sqlite with Kexi has been made because of a need for long-term compatibility.

Proposed solution:

  1. revert "external-sqlite.diff" patch
  2. in the future: ask Kexi maintainer before such internal change is performed

Reported here: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=121933

Problem2: PostgreSQL driver bundled with KOffice, making it hard to install

Status: fixed in 1.0

PostgreSQL driver should be offered as a separate package (Kexi itself shouldn't depend on PostgresSQL). The same as with MySQL. We will support Oracle in the future but this shouldn't mean KOffice needs Oracle to run.
