Dear Guix people,

I have checked FreeCAD on several machines and get the same error.

To reproduce:
- guix install freecad
- Open FreeCAD
- Create new document
- Select 'Draft' workbench

This produces an error:

'<built-in function SoFieldContainer_getField> returned a result with an exception set'

The backtrace and also as some forums suggest (e.g., https://forum.freecad.org/viewtopic.php?t=74156)that the issue is the outdated 'python-pivy'. The dependency version in python-xyz.scm is 0.6.5 released Jan 12, 2020 where latest release 0.6.8 is from Aug 25, 2022.

I have tried to build newer version of 'python-pivy' but I hit some errors that I do not understand how to fix. The errors from build log among other things tell that it 'Could not find a package configuration file provided by "Qt5Core" with any of the following names: Qt5CoreConfig.cmake qt5core-config.cmake'.

Could somebody with more knowledge about building freecad help or give some suggestions how can I define latest 'python-pivy' (assuming the outdated package causes the 'Draft' workbench crash).

I looked at the 'python-pivy' issue again today. I was able to build 'python-pivy' from git with:

cd pivy
guix shell -D python-pivy -- python3 setup.py build

Examining build log of the former and comparing to the build log of standard 'guix build python-pivy --load-path=/my/python-pivy.scm' I found some differences in paths passed as arguments to the 'swig' command called by 'setup.py'. Specifically the 'swig' command is different in its last '-I' argument

guix shell -D python-pivy -- python3 setup.py build:

-I"/gnu/store/1k54m72p12h0lkqa9iicfknydawdfrbm-profile/include"

guix build python-pivy --load-path=/my/python-pivy.scm

-I"/gnu/store/ivbbmgrvhdc46p2ywx1x2zsmal3x0z5n-soqt-1.6.0-1.fb8f655/include"

Both paths have 'Inventor' dir in it but the former has a lot of symlinks to the Coin but the later has only one symlink to Qt dir. I think this is why there was a buildsystem patch commented as "respect Coin3D include directory". It does not work for the latest python-pivy and this is where I stuck. Do not understand why with 'guix shell -D python-pivy -- python3 setup.py build' works whereas 'guix build python-pivy --load-path=/my/python-pivy.scm' does not and how can I fix/path.

Moreover it seems that there is another issue already. I just did guix pull ('guix describe' -> guix bfc6143) and now freecad can not even be installed. This time 'python-pyside' dependency is not building. Bellow is python-pyside-2-5.15.10 build log:

error: in phase 'fix-qt-module-detection': uncaught exception:

Can someone, please, check if this is indeed a new issue or freecad can still be installed?

I've also tried building pivy 0.6.8 against an updated soqt (1.6.2) but get similar errors. Any idea what needs to be
upgraded here to make pivy build?
