It might be worth exploring packaging of this LGPL application. The GNUmed
team would be highly interested in this (I will do some usability tests)
as it is the only application (I know of) on all operating systems (important
for us) which supports viewing fluouroscopy and echo studies.
Here is the list of dependecies
WxWidgets: MultiPlatform Graphical User Interface (GUI).
VTK: Kitware's Visualization ToolKit.
ITK: Kitware's Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit.
DCMTK: Offis' DICOM ToolKit.
OpenSSL: Open Source SSL/TLS Framework .
SQLite: The in-process SQL DataBase Engine.
I am packaging gnumed-server. I have two issues which
need to to corrected before I move it to bugzilla.
You can find the spec file, the SRPM and the RPM here
The issues are:
1) After installation, it creates the db gnumed_v2 and upgrade to
gnumed_v14, one step at a time. This takes too long.
Is there a way to create gnumed_v14 directly?
2) We need to figure a way to backup the databases and continue with
bootstrapping quitely. Right now, it asks the user whether to continue
3) Does this use any unpackaged library? If yes, it would be nice to know which
Helps are appreciated.

Sorry to know that.

Hmm...so as far as I can see, this is pretty much close to completion. Right?
Do you mind if we push it for now, complete those two packages as soon
as possible and push an update for amide? Getting a package in Fedora
takes it's time and redoing the whole process again would delay things
even more. Let us know what do you think.

I shall open a ticket by tomorrow.

Ok. I have unpushed it from F14, I shall try and get it unpushed from
rawhide as well.
If you want me to push it again, please let me know when you feel ready.
Amide, which is a medical image data examiner, is now packaged for
Fedora and has been pushed to the official repository.
We had to package this without ffmpeg, because of licence restriction.
Currently it's waiting in queue and should be available for install
via yum in an week.
