Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 101819
eog does not build (require librsvg2-devel)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:57 EST
The Taroon eog-2.2.2-1.src.rpm package does not build correctly
on Taroon (everything install).
The error message says that /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libgsf-1.pc is needed.
So this is really two bugs:
- eog needs libgsf-devel, but this is not included in Taroon (but in Severn)
- there should be a build prereq for libgsf-devel
Attaching the rebuild output.

Taroon isn't intended to be self-hosting; the -devel packages are removed
to limit ABI support liability (keep customers/ISVs from using libraries
that we don't want to live with forever).
However the BuildRequires should be there.
The issue is really that is should buildreq librsvg2-devel. And librsvg2-devel
should require gsf-devel (that has been fixed now, but used to be broken).

librsvg2-devel has been fixed, so this should be not a problem anymore.
