Description Ben Boeckel 2010-05-20 20:41:17 UTC
Description of problem: I'm preparing to package xmobar (Bug #460974). xmobar crashes if xft is not built without utf8 support (and using an xft from cabal causes confusion and mass hysteria for some reason; maybe xmonad/xmobar not liking linking different builds?). I see that X11-xft was rebuilt for rawhide, any plans for F-13 and lower?
Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2010-05-24 01:14:16 UTC
What happens if you remove ghc-utf8-string*? I think this confusion came about by ghc-6.12.1 accidently shipping a copy of utf8-string. But you are right we should really rebuild all the packages that depend on it.
Comment 2 Ben Boeckel 2010-05-24 01:57:21 UTC
Then xmobar is not built against it and crashes with UTF-8 characters in window titles. This has been fixed in xmobar 0.11 (not sure where, xmobar or xft), but the packages should still be rebuilt.
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2010-05-24 04:10:27 UTC
Need more details: point being that ghc-6.12.1 already includes utf8-string-0.3.4.
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2010-05-24 04:12:37 UTC
So for current f13 probably better to drop the dependency for now. (I agree packages need rebuilding but that takes some time, so just suggesting "workarounds" for now.:)
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2010-05-27 02:39:18 UTC
(xmobar should build fine in rawhide/f14 anyway so you could still go ahead with its review - I will try to work on this soon if noone else gets to it first. I blame ghc for shipping utf8-string in ghc-6.12.1! :)
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2010-06-02 10:25:52 UTC
I started this with rebuild of ghc-X11-xft http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2224600 Next will be ghc-xmonad-contrib.
