Description bsd 2017-05-10 08:04:28 UTC
On FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p9, launching SmartGit 17.0.3 (http://www.syntevo.com/smartgit/download) throws error:

smartgit % bin/smartgit.sh
Outdated SWT version detected! Aborting.

Would it be possible to update swt-devel to latest version?
Comment 1 bsd 2017-05-10 08:06:07 UTC
By the way, old, non-supported SmartGit 8.0.4 still works with current swt-devel.

To test, make sure to copy:

cp /usr/local/share/java/classes/swt-devel.jar lib/org.eclipse.swt.gtk.freebsd.x86_64.jar
Comment 2 Keren Sky 2017-08-03 23:50:16 UTC
I found this software (BiglyBT) utilizes SWT and offers a BSD installer that works. When checking the about dialog after installation on FreeBSD the SWT version is given thusly:

Java 1.8.0_131 (64 bit)
  Oracle Corporation

SWT v4623, gtk/2.24.31
FreeBSD v11.1-STABLE, amd64 (64 bit)
B1.0.0.0/4 az3

Perhaps this can help someone. 

Comment 3 Keren Sky 2017-08-03 23:52:58 UTC
(In reply to Keren Sky from comment #2)
 Also in terminal window we see after launching:

Starting BiglyBT...
Suitable java version found [java = openjdk 1.8.0_131]
Using swt/swt-bsd.jar v4.623

This port does not currently have a maintainer. Any patches/testing that can be provided will help substantially to progress the issue and would be appreciated. 

Is the x11-toolkits/swt port also out-of-date? If so, perhaps that port should be updated to the latest release, and the swt-devel port deleted

I am not knowledgeable enough to submit a patch, but could I test or help in other ways?

x11-toolkits/swt is even more outdated, being at version 3.5.2_4

Comment 7 bsd 2018-02-26 13:15:28 UTC
I got Bugzilla's request to act on this ticket, but, as I said above, I am not knowledgeable enough to submit a patch.

I could I test or help in other ways.

x11-toolkits/swt is even more outdated, being at version 3.5.2_4 


Being x11-toolkits/swt port also out-of-date, that port should perhaps be updated to the latest release, and the swt-devel port deleted.
Comment 8 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-02-26 13:22:14 UTC
The website states:
The latest Python updated failed. Repairs are in progress 20171025

Do you have a local copy of the patch and could attach it?
Comment 9 bsd 2018-02-26 13:32:42 UTC
No, sorry, I do not have a patch.

Some information can be found here, not sure if useful:
Comment 10 bsd 2018-03-05 09:22:52 UTC
This ticket does not nned to relate to third party apps.

The main point is simply that swt, and swt-devel are out of date

Latest version is 4.7.2 (30 November 2017), as reported by official page: http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/
Comment 11 Thomas Merkel 2018-06-28 07:54:16 UTC
Not sure if bugs are linked somehow but I've updated to the latest swt version based on the following ports changes: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=229360
Comment 12 bsd 2018-06-28 08:04:37 UTC
(In reply to Thomas Merkel from comment #11)

Thank you, I believe it is related, as the latest version will solve the issue.
Comment 13 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-09 10:26:49 UTC
swt has version  4.7.3a (swt-devel 3.7.1 ??). 

Is this still relevant.

I think swt-devel should either updated if there is a newer version or removed.
Comment 14 Thomas Merkel 2019-08-11 10:25:45 UTC
From my point of view swt-devel could be removed from the ports tree?
Comment 15 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-11 11:10:07 UTC
Overlooked swt-devel is still used by three ports. The rest here is solved, so I close here with overcome.
Comment 16 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2019-08-11 11:23:54 UTC
x11-toolkits/swt-devel is currently unmaintained, and has a version < (less than) x11-toolkits/swt.

Ports currently dependent on x11-toolkits/swt-devel:

audio/tuxguitar (yuri@)
graphics/jogamp-jogl (makc@)
net-p2p/vuze (unmaintained)

Ask maintainers of those ports whether the dependency can be switched to x11-toolkits/swt so as to deprecate and delete x11-toolkits/swt-devel
Comment 17 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-11 11:43:19 UTC
TuxGuitar needs updated to 1.5.0 (port have now 1.2).
Vuze needs updated to 5760 (port have now 5740).
jogamp-jogl needs updated to 2.4.0 (port have now 2.2.2).
Comment 18 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-11 11:53:05 UTC
For jogamp-jogl there is an update bug #225058 to 2.3.2.
Comment 19 Kubilay Kocak freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2019-08-11 11:56:47 UTC
(In reply to Walter Schwarzenfeld from comment #17)

To clarify, are those versions listed the versions required to support using x11-toolkits/swt (currently 4.7.3.a) ?
Comment 20 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-11 12:09:40 UTC
I don't know. I don't find anything about it on Sourceforge for vuze and tuxguitar and 

also  nothing for jogamp-jogl:

Comment 22 Max Brazhnikov freebsd_committer 2019-08-12 23:34:03 UTC
graphics/jogamp-jogl is fixed now.
Comment 23 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-13 03:56:28 UTC
Trying to build or update vuze:

It does build with swt and swt-devel. But it does not start: "java: error: no suitable JavaVMs found"
I think this is caused by a wrong build.xml.
Comment 24 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-13 03:57:08 UTC
Forgot the current version in the port tree of vuze also does not start.
Comment 25 Walter Schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-08-13 04:13:27 UTC
I think we can remove swt-devel.
