Description Jhon H. Caicedo 2003-10-14 10:58:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021210

Description of problem:
I have downloaded the SRPM for gaim-0.71-0 from Rawhide, 
compiled it an noticed that if mozilla-nspr-devel is not
installed, the configure script for the product is unable
to find the required SSL library. As a result of this,
the MSN plugin doesn't work.

After installing the mozilla-nspr and mozilla-nspr-devel
packages the configure script detected Mozilla/NSS as the
SSL library to use and the MSN plugin works fine.

The SPEC file for gaim should contain in addition to the
existing requirements:

Requires: mozilla-nspr
BuildRequires: mozilla-nspr-devel

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Remove mozilla-nspr-devel package
2.Compile and install gaim
3.Try to access an account using the MSN plugin

Actual Results:  At start, gaim attempt to load the MSN plugin but instead, got the
Gaim was unable to load your plugin.
The required plugin MSN was unable to load.

Expected Results:  The MSN plugin should load and login to the configured MSN

Additional info:

I have done the test using RedHat-9 and RedHat-7.3 to rebuild 
the RPM using the SRPM from RawHide with the same results.
Comment 1 Christopher Blizzard 2003-10-14 13:45:33 EDT
The buildrequires in rawhide are correct.  On the system you're testing on,
nss-devel doesn't require nspr-devel.  I'm not going to go and fix this for old
systems since that's not what that rpm is targetted at.
