Robotpy-cscore packages for Fedora/Ubuntu/openSUSE Linux


#1

Hey all,

To coincide with the release of robotpy-cscore 2019.0.1 (which includes a fix for FPS stream limiting), I have created packages for some distros that have a python3-opencv package, namely Fedora 29, Ubuntu 18.04 and 18.10, and openSUSE Leap 15.

You can grab them here: https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=home%3Aauscompgeek%3Arobotpy&package=python3-cscore

I recommend installing by adding the repository, as it will also pull in a python3-networktables dependency which I have packaged.

Update: I seem to have successfully packaged cscore for Debian testing and Raspbian testing, in case those are your cup of tea.


#3

Is there an advantage of using the package over pulling with pip? Seemed to work fine for me (but I have the dev libraries on the box).


#4

Just saves having to compile them yourself (which can be time consuming).
