kicad: Version mismatch
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Hello Solus community,

today I have installed kicad 5.1.6 from the Solus repository and encountered a version mismatch error:

Fatal Error: Mismatch between the program and library build versions detected.
The library used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1013,wx containers,compatible with 2.8),
and your program used 3.0 (wchar_t,compiler with C++ ABI 1002,wx containers,compatible with 2.8).
[1]    18069 abort (core dumped)  kicad

A rebuild of 5.1.6 nor an update to 5.1.8 have resolved the issue.

If it is not a Solus problem, I will go to the KiCAD bug tracker.

Thank you,

Maik Wöhl

Looks like @livingsilver94 removed a patch from wxwidgets in D9740 that he shouldn't have. Adding that patch back in should fix it.

I'm doing a build at the moment with the patch re-added and will send this off to shannon once it's build locally, validated, and pushed to unstable.

Will still like an explanation on why the file was removed.

I thought that patch was about build time checks, and in fact my local building tests passed. I'm deeply sorry.

Pushed to build server now. Should be sorted soon.

@livingsilver94 Yea let's just be a tad bit more careful when it comes to patch deletion. May be worth checking Phabricator / git log/blame on a file to see the originating reason it was added. wxWidgets is certainly one of those weird ones and its behavior with being so quick to treating something as a fatal error isn't really warranted.

Also my fault for not catching it during the review process. Unfortunately Phabricator condenses deleted diffs so it wasn't immediately obvious to me.
