Description JeeBee 2006-04-25 04:51:21 EDT
Description of problem: Cannot compile several program anymore, like dbus (cvs version), kvirc (cvs version) and my guess is all other programs that use libcairo (-lcairo in their link flags). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): freetype-2.1.10-184.108.40.206 cairo-1.0.4-1 cairo-devel-1.0.4-1 (by the way, I think I had freetype-2.1.10-5.2.1 this morning which had the same problem, tried to fix it by upgrading freetype but that didn't change anything). How reproducible: I guess just compile any program that uses enough cairo functions hence must be compiled with -lcairo. For me it's reproducible each time I tried to compile dbus of kvirc. Steps to Reproduce: 1. checkout dbus cvs 2. try to build it ... Actual results: undefined reference to `FT_GlyphSlot_Embolden' Expected results: You compiled successfully, have a nice day. Additional info: Prepending -lfreetype to -lcairo solves the issue. I guess libcairo should be linking to libfreetype for the missing symbol right???
