CrossOver 9.1 RPM installation fails

The information in this article is considered outdated

RPM distributions have unfortunately made it impossible to depend on Python Gtk in a portable way due to the different package names, features names, etc. In CrossOver 9.0 and 9.1 we attempted to warn our users of the missing dependency by raising an error in the RPM preinstall step. However it turned out this prevents distribution of the RPM using systems such as AutoYast because they use the dependencies to determine the package installation order. So we have reverted this change for future releases or CrossOver.

In the meantime you can work around this issue by:
  • installing the RPM package on a staging machine
  • editing cxoffice/share/crossover/cxrepackage/rpm.spec to prefix the 'python -c' line with 'true #'
  • recreating an RPM package with
    cxoffice/bin/cxrepackage --release 2 --rpm

That should give you a crossover-pro-9.1.0-2.i386.rpm file that should work with AutoYast and similar systems.

Or by contacting us for further assistance. If you are a trial user and need assistance, please send an email to
