raw solution for Fedora 9?

Hello,

What is the working RAW solution for Fedora?
I tried UFraw 0.13-6 but the crw files from my Ixus 860 are not recognised. (!?)

What rpms can I download and install to make things work?

Please let me know.

BTW: dcraw on the commandline does read the CRW files of the 860 but then I miss the GUI features...

You can use DNG4PS-2 to convert (lossless) the RAWs to DNG format (including the EXIF data, taken from the corresponding JPEG file), then many apps can work with it, e.g. the GIMP...

Yes, but I see no rpm for x86_64 and the build-environment is not so conventional that I could easily make my own rpm.

Sorry, you haven't mentioned your version...

Then DNG4PS-2 needs to be fixed.
At the present time it means thT i am in need of a different solution for CRW support.
DNG4PS-2 is not 64-bit clean as it appears, ufraw as offered by Fedora doesn't open CRW from my Ixus 860.
So what else could I try?

Indeed it should be fixed, I believe most new Linux desktops are running 64-bit distros now since all the CPUs are 64-bit and there are less and less problems with commonly used apps. Does anyone have a clue where the problem is?

I believe the dng4ps-2 Windows version runs fine under Wine (I don't know if there's a problem running it under wine on 64-bit Linux, I hope not).

You could also try to compile the 32-bit Linux version and run it under a 32-bit chroot. Don't use gcc 4.3, though, as it apparently is incompatible with a certain 3rd party library version dng4ps uses. Don't know if that's much more user friendly than Wine, though.

I don't have ability to setup 64-bit linux distro to test program and fix bugs. Also dng4ps2 contains "libexif" library, which is not tested for 64 bits. I hope someone else will fix 64-bit bugs.

Hmmm..
Thanks for the responses but this doesn't look good.
I moved to Linux to abandon Windows.
Even my tax stuff can be done using Linux.
And now for photo's there's no Linux method?
