Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2017-02-28 11:55:00 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 26 development cycle.
Changing version to '26'.

Comment 5 Stuart D Gathman 2017-03-02 06:12:57 UTC
I'm working on this.  The immediate problem is a typo that got into master.  But openssl has also changed to break libssh2 in pgadmin3.  Seems EVP_*_CTX is no the same in openssl/evp.h.  Mock building to see what the f26 files have.

Comment 6 Stuart D Gathman 2017-03-02 06:18:18 UTC
Taking this since you are focused on pgadmin4.

Comment 7 Stuart D Gathman 2017-03-02 06:58:08 UTC
Problem is pgadmin3 fails to use EVP_CIPHER_CTX_new(), and openssl-1.1 hides the struct (as it should).

Comment 8 Stuart D Gathman 2017-03-03 02:41:19 UTC
The deeper problem is that pgadmin3 embeds libssh2-1.6.1, which does not use the *_new() and *_free() functions.  So the question is, continue patching the embedded libssh2?  Or try to fix the build so it uses the system libssh2.  In any case, I added the required provides to the spec file:

Provides: bundled(libssh2) = 1.6.1_DEV

This shouldn't have passed package review - must have been grandfathered in.

Comment 9 Devrim Gündüz 2017-03-03 09:47:08 UTC
Stuart, thanks for looking at this. On community side, I think pgadmin4 packaging is stable now. All I need is to submit its dependencies first for a review, and then pgadmin4 itself.

Comment 10 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 08:56:13 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 11 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-29 12:22:19 UTC
Fedora 26 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-05-29. Fedora 26
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any
further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
