got FreeCAD and LibreCad installed. took forever and I have a AMD 8core 8125 FX cpu.

never seen my cpu's lightup to 100 percent before but they did. system didnt get slugish either. was interesting watching gkrellm.

updating a library to get FreeCAD going got kmail messed up. switched to seamonkey mail program for moment.

That's great news!
Congrads:-

Didn't think updating a lib would make a mess of kmail. Shame it made a mess for you.
Maybe try removing kmail and than re-install it.

Are you happy with FreeCAD and LibreCad? Do they run well?

FreeCAD looks professional. havent spent much time with it yet.
libreCAD I used something similar years ago. librecad is 2d only.

I've been using BRLCAD under Slackware since 2007'ish. It runs fine on my Slackware 14.1 laptop, but it's sensitive to the installed version of libboost and I've had trouble getting it to run before.

Really? Are you running current or 14.2?

I'm running 14.2 64 bit on all my machines and kmail is working quite well upon all the machines where I've installed FreeCAD.

How are things going mrapathy?

You like the programs?

I just installed LibreCAD this morning.

The script for qt5 ran about 9 hours! The other dependencies, muparser took 2 min's and the script for librecad took maybe 15 min's.

Sbopkg gave me a hard time (something to the tune of it may not make sense to proceed if there are other dependencies) so I had to manually install each dependency and the program itself.

AutoCAD works quite good under wine. Ecpecially old versions, for example AC2006. You will need to use winetricks before installation.
Look at https://www.winehq.org/search?q=autocad

Hello Ztcoracat.

I havent played around with them much as I did a complete overhaul of my system. tried installing current on my main install
it didnt go well. so need to reinstall libreCAD and FreeCAD.

years ago was another CAD program that was 2D that worked on linux dont know if it was QCAD or what.

want 3D cad myself.

Dont recall what all I built recently but something sure ate up my AMD FX 8120 8 core cpu for good while.

It would be nice if we had a package management system that would install dependencies or pointed them out atleast and gave option for installing them. LibreCAD wasnt too bad for deps but FreeCAD was terrible.

Did you install all dependencies? I am having trouble with korganizer and kmail in current without FreeCAD installed.
On my main system 14.2 with FreeCAD and all listed deps installed, kmail stopped working havent had time to look into whats going on.

taking my time to reinstall stuff as I want to be more cautious this time around.

Sorry to hear installing current didn't go well for you. Any ideas why?

Good luck with your fresh install of LibreCAD and FreeCAD.

I looked at the dependencies for FreeCAD and I completely agree! Terrible indeed. (a real nightmare)

If I had to guess it was the script that ate up your 8 core cpu for that long of a time.

I've been watching videos on You Tube to get familiar with LibreCAD. So far so good. Here's the link if anyone following your thread wants to learn.

Let us know how things go for you.

one search on why in current korganizer and kmail are not working was that MariaDB was not up to date. looked into that and I have the latest which should have solved the problem.

on my 14.2 setup I dont know know why kmail stopped working. as you noted FreeCAD has alot of deps. Installing LibreCAD now. qt5 isnt eating up cpu like whatever did last time but its definitely got system busy.

thanks for the link to youtube and libreCAD.
once you used one cad program the rest are fairly easy. just moved features around mostly so not to look like a complete copy of someone elses work.
I have used AutoCAD,TurboCAD and toyed with some others.

You're Welcome.

Glad you found out it was MariaDB. Didn't think it could be that:-

What you said is assuring. I look forward to working in LibreCAD and hope that over time I master it.
I made my first line drawling a few minutes ago.....so I'm off to a good start.
It was time to up my game with a program to build buildings, sky scrappers, robots and etc. to increase my skills in my art studio.

Here's the manual-

Sorry I'm not good with kmail. I use Thunderbird and gmail.
If I find anything I'll post it for you.

It's the qt5 portion that does it.

I've got a spare machine that uses slackrepo to do my builds. It only has a AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 260 Processor @3568.121MHz. qt5 will take hours to build. FreeCAD itself doesn't take anywhere near that long.
