Bummer. Tried to close list of suggested applicable bugs and it saved this one!


The fedora SDCC package installs binaries with a "sdcc-" prefix which breaks piklab's detection mechanism (it does sdcc -v).

You can workaround this by symlinking /usr/bin/sdcc-sdcc to /usr/bin/sdcc but that is not a viable packaging solution.

piklab needs patching to that it adds the sdcc- prefix after of any user-specified program path.

Comment 2 Alain Portal 2014-02-05 09:00:15 UTC
Please, read the README.fedora file in sdcc:
"Many of the executables in SDCC have very generic names. Therefore the binaries
are installed into $PREFIX/libexec/sdcc/, and symlinks with prefix sdcc- are
created in $PREFIX/bin. If this is a problem for you, you can add
$PREFIX/libexec/sdcc/ to you path."
