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