- Drop GNU R dependency (removed with VTK 8.1.0)
* Sat Jun 19 2021 Ben Greiner <>
- Add vtk-opensuse-python-metadata.patch:
  Installing without VTK_BUILD_WHEEL lacks the dist-info/egg-info
  metadata. When a user installs python packages which depend
  on vtk through pip (into the user home or into a virtualenv),
  pip does not recognize the files installed into site-packages
  without the metadata and pulls in a big manylinux wheel from
  PyPI. We introduce the necessary egg-info metadata in order to
  avoid this.
- python3-vtk: Don't own the arch site-packages (%python3_sitearch)
  and the toplevel __pycache__ dir, only our own python files.
- Move qt and python .so devel files to main devel package, adjust
  rpmlintrc: The devel files are not required by the
  python bindings (anymore?).
* Wed Jun 09 2021 Ben Greiner <>
- Add vtk-std_numeric_limits.patch in order to fix gcc 11.1 build
- Require %{name}-qt in python3-%{name}: The Python bindings link
  to, but zypper fails to resolve the
  requirement to the correct (non-)mpi flavor -- boo#1187161
- Change description: The vtk-qt subpackage provides some Qt
  libraries, not a designer plugin.
- Support for QtWebkit was removed with vtk 9.0.0: Remove the build
* Tue Oct 20 2020 Ismail Dönmez <>

* Mon Jun 15 2020 Andreas Schwab <>
- Drop -ffat-lto-objects to avoid wasting disk space
* Wed Jun 10 2020 Guillaume GARDET <>
- Update _constraints to avoid OOM errors
* Sun May 31 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Add vtk-qt-5.15-include-QPainterPath.patch: Include QPainterPath
  to fix build failures against Qt 5.15; patch taken from
  upstream, see
- The %%cmake macro sets CMAKE_SKIP_RPATH=ON for Leap 15.x which
  causes build failures; set it to OFF and set
- Build without pegtl for distributions where pegtl > 2.0 is
  unavailable (Leap 15.1).
- Disable java bindings for Leap 15.1 only where cmake still
  searches for the javah binary (and setting it to %{_bindir}/true
  seems to no longer work).
- Run ld post scripts for vtk-qt.
* Fri May 08 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Update to version 9.0.0
  * See
- Rebase patches still required for building:
  * bundled_exodusii_add_missing_libpthread.patch: Update to
    upstream patch
  * bundled_libharu_add_missing_libm.patch
- Pass VTK_PYTHON_OPTIONAL_LINK:BOOL=OFF to cmake to link against
  the system python library explicitly.
- Add vtk-parallelgeometry-dependency.patch to fix a missing
  dependency for vtkparallelgeometry (see
- Comment out 0001-Allow-compilation-on-GLES-platforms.patch that
  no longer applies and needs extensive rebasing.
- Drop patches incorporated or otherwise fixed upstream:
  * 0001-Make-code-calling-proj4-compatible-with-proj4-5.0-an.patch
  * 0001-Add-libogg-to-IOMovie-target-link-libraries.patch
  * python38.patch
  * reproducible.patch
- Adapt to changes in upstream's cmake script:
  * Replace old options by their newer versions where applicable.
  * Pass VTK_USE_EXTERNAL=ON to use system libraries by default
    except for gl2ps, haru, and pugixml.
- New BuildRequires: pegtl-devel and utfcpp-devel.
- No longer needed to pass
  Java_JAVAH_EXECUTABLE:PATH=%{_bindir}/true to cmake; script does
  not look for javah any more.
- Use autosetup to set up and patch sources: simplifies applying
  changing list of patches; use an if guard to avoid patch needing
  rebase while not running into conflict with factory bot.
- Use system gl2ps for openSUSE > 1500.
Version: 8.2.0-bp152.2.1
* Mon Apr 27 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Fix serial builds broken due to disabling the building of
  examples; instead of commenting out sections of the specfile
  related to examples, use %bcond_with to disable building
  examples by default and the corresponding conditionals where
* Sun Apr 26 2020 Bernhard Wiedemann <>
- add reproducible.patch to override build date and to sort entries
  (boo#1047218, boo#1041090)
* Fri Apr 24 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
- Disable building examples to prevent
  randomly missing from vtk.jar (boo#1138295, see also upstream
  recommendation in
* Wed Mar 11 2020 Stefan Brüns <>
- Remove -DVTK_PYTHON_SITE_PACKAGES_SUFFIX silently added with the
  last change. As it specifies the path relative to the install
  prefix, setting it to the absolute python_sitearch is obviously
  wrong. As VTK figures out the correct path by itself, it is
  completely unnecessary.
* Tue Mar 10 2020 Tomá? Chvátal <>
- Add patch to fix building with python 3.8:
  * python38.patch
* Tue Jan 28 2020 Stefan Brüns <>
- Add openmpi3 flavor.
- Disable openmpi1 for SLE/Leap 15.2, openmpi3 for SLE <= 15.1
- Adjust disk _constraints.
- Drop vtk-fix-file-contains-date-time.patch, GCC honors
- Drop unused netcdf-c++-devel BuildRequires.
* Mon Nov 04 2019 Stefan Brüns <>
- Adapt to openmpi -> openmpi1 rename on Tumbleweed.
- Spec file cleanup, remove conditionals for Leap 42.x.
- Apply proj4 compatibility patch also on Leap.
* Tue Sep 10 2019 Christophe Giboudeaux <>
- Use -ffat-lto-objects when building static libraries.
* Sun Apr 14 2019 Christophe Giboudeaux <>
- Add more explicit dependencies to vtk-devel.
* Tue Apr 09 2019 Christophe Giboudeaux <>
- Add an explicit 'Requires: double-conversion-devel' for vtk-devel.
  The double-conversion library is mentioned in vtkdoubleconversion.cmake
  but isn't automatically installed.
* Fri Mar 15 2019 Stefan Brüns <>
- Update to version 8.2.0
  * Removed support for TCL and Qt4
    C++11 is now required.
  * vtkAbstractArray gained support for runtime user defined free functions,
    allowing for custom allocator memory to be used with VTK.
  * The vtkGeovis classes are now deprecated.
  See for a more exhaustive list.
- Packaging changes:
  * Python bindings for MPI flavors are now installed below the MPI prefix
    and thus no longer conflict with each other. To use these, the
    PYTHONPATH currently has to be amended manually.
  * Removed several devel Requires: from the devel package. This reduces the
    dependency chain (e.g. java-devel) for all packages building against VTK,
    but may require to specify some dependencies explicitly, depending on
    the used VTK modules and bindings.
- Patch updates/additions:
  * Rebase vtk-fix-file-contains-date-time.patch
  * Rebase 0001-Allow-compilation-on-GLES-platforms.patch
  * Drop obsolete fix_qt5_example_cmake.patch
  * Add bundled_libharu_add_missing_libm.patch
  * Add bundled_exodusii_add_missing_libpthread.patch
  * Add 0001-Add-libogg-to-IOMovie-target-link-libraries.patch
  * Add 0001-Make-code-calling-proj4-compatible-with-proj4-5.0-an.patch
* Sun Jan 06 2019 Stefan Brüns <>
- Correct names of built packages, the mpi flavors were lacking the
  flavor specific name infix, i.e. all flavors were named identically.
* Wed Jan 02 2019 Stefan Brüns <>
- Add openmpi2 flavor
- BuildRequire netcdf-{mpi_flavor}-devel for MPI flavors
- Add Conflicts between flavors of python3 subpackage (all flavors
  install into python_sitearch).
* Fri Dec 14 2018 Stefan Brüns <>
- Convert openmpi package to multibuild flavor
- Use correct mpi version - openmpi currently means openmpi, and not openmpi2/3
  Otherwise, VTK depends on openmpi1 (HDF5, netcdf) and openmpi2/3 (direct)
- Remove several mpi BuildRequires in serial flavor
* Wed Dec 12 2018 Stefan Brüns <>
- Add python3-vtk to vtk-devel Requires, same as for vtk-java/tcl
- Remove empty testing subpackage
- Fix path to VTK_DATA_ROOT default directory
* Thu Nov 22 2018 Todd R <>
- Update to version 8.1.2
  * Issue error if vtkAlgorithm::GetInputConnection called on wrong port
  * Added explicit cast to pacify UBSan?s ?implicit-integer-truncation?
  * Make some orientation marker widget methods virtual
  * vtkImageBlend bug fix for compound mode
  * vtkFlyingEdges2D: Properly color multiple isocontour values
  * Invoke DeletePointEvent before deleting vtkSeedWidget seed
  * Fix compilation issue due to Python3.7 API change
  * Fix bug where re-enabling seed widget wouldn't move existing seeds
- Fix python dependencies
- Test to make sure python package is importable
- Split out MPI version since the MPI version cannot be used
  outside an MPI environment.
- Build vtkData as part of the main package.  This makes sure the
  data is extracted into the correct format.
* Fri Jun 29 2018
- Drop post[un] scripts for devel and java subpackages; they are
  only needed for the versioned shlib.
* Mon Jun 11 2018
- Update to version 8.1.1:
  * Fixed thin border around vtkImageResliceMapper
  * Fixed vtkImageResliceMapper showing a black
    polygon when slice is out of bounds.
  * Fixed conflict between Process.h and process.h
  * Fixed building VTK 8.1 against 10.13 SDK
    resulting in linker errors when trying to use
    resulting libraries on older SDK
  * Fixed vtkCellPicker::IntersectActorWithLine maybe
    using invalid cell id when picking composite data
- Add fix_qt5_example_cmake.patch
  Fixes use of removed cmake macro in some examples
- Use modern cmake spec file macros
- Run spec cleaner
- Other spec file cleanups
- Support parallel HDF5.
- Drop support for qt4.  Any version of openSUSE with a recent
  enough version of cmake to build the package supports Qt5.
- Drop checks for old versions of openSUSE that have too old
  of a cmake to build.
* Sun Feb 04 2018
- Use split libboost*-devel BuildRequires for TW and Leap/SLE 15
* Wed Jan 24 2018
- Fix build with jdk10
  * give a bogus javah path "%{_bindir}/true", since the cmake
    checks the javah binary although the build does not use it.
