I ran into a strange set of issues when trying to compile
pygplates on the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). Despite having all the requirements installed (e.g. Qt5, Boost etc). the compiler complained about Qt5 libraries not being present:
/usr/lib/qt5/bin/uic: error while loading shared libraries: libQt5Core.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
However, these are installed in
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ like in any other Linux distro. Turns out that some other people have the same issues to load the shared Qt5 libraries when compiling software on WSL. This is solved by running the following line:
sudo strip --remove-section=.note.ABI-tag /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libQt5Core.so.5
I am slowly moving my BitBucket and GitHub repositories to self-hosted Fossil repositories available at https://code.paleoearthlabs.org. This means, there will be public issue trackers, wikis and forums.
Most of them will be mirrored to sourcehut which is a blazingly fast, simple, and FOSS-based alternative to the major players which also comes with mailinglists, todo/issuetracker and a wiki.
My GIT repositories (downstream mirrors of Fossil repos and pure GIT repos) can be found here https://git.sr.ht/~chhei. Note that the Fossil repository mirrors will only receive changes downstream from the original Fossil repos.
The following code is available now:
