community/erlang-observer: broken out of the box
I recently tried to get
erlang-observer package to work on clean Alpine 3.15.0 install (because edge has the same package) and found a few issues to get it to work.
All detailed in a blog post but in a nutshell:
erlang-wxdependency (without which it doesn't start)
xauthdependency (without which X11 can't be forwarded)
terminus-fontdependency (without which it looks like this)
- x11 forwarding disabled in sshd
The first two I'm reasonably confident should be fixed in the package.
The third one I'm not sure -- it could be quirk of my setup, it could be generic. But since it's a single package dependency and clocking at
2.71 MB, I'd probably err on the side of caution.
The fourth one is probably not worth fixing; I'm just mentioning it for completeness sake.
I'll try and come up with a MR for the first three issues shortly.
