Hi Peter, you maybe didn't notice SalomeGeometry's URL nor the
description i'm afraid. here the package description:

"A complete OpenCascade - OCAF based CAD framework. Note that this is
not the original SALOME GEOM project but an effort to create a
standalone framework based on the existing one from SALOME project, with
the addition of extra functionality."

so this package is just a set of libraries like openCASCADE.

I'm actually working on "real" SALOME: http://www.salome-platform.org/
(today the website looks to be down)

but it's not so easy to package and build. Right now you can find the
first test packages in OBS repo Education:Salome:Factory


Packages are still into a early stage, and infact looks to works fine
only on i586 (x86_64 has some issues due to hardcoded /usr/lib when
x86_64 use /usr/lib64)

Not all packages are succesufull but i think to be able to provide you a
full Salome as xmas gift! (at least on i586)

actually available modules are "kernel, gui, geometry and med".

Any way, as i told you i'm working to provide ORIGINAL salome, but i
will not provide SALOME-MECA because of 2 main reason:

1st it's based on an outdated salome version (4.something)
2nd it's enought to unzip the tarball e run the starting script.

i hope you'll want to provide me some useful test on salome packages.

btw. i should release into packaman repo pythonOCC soon

i know the mail is .de but it's because of packman stuff
(links2linux.de), feel free to use my "real" mail that is
