Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 115070
kdemultimedia should include juk
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:36 EST
This is regarding the Fedora KDE 3.2 packages on the KDE mirrors.
They are not on the official Fedora repositories, but the packager
line says "Red Hat, Inc. <http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla>" and
so I am reporting here.
For some reason, the kdemultimedia packages do not include the juk
media player. Since I consider juk to be superior to the other two
KDE media players (which are included), this is disappointing.
Oddly, however, the kdemultimedia package does include some help
files related to juk:
$ rpm -q --filesbypkg kdemultimedia |grep juk
If juk is going to be packaged separately, please disregard this
bug, although there's no juk Fedora RPM currently on the KDE mirrors
based on KDE 3.2.
OK, I downloaded the SRPM for kdemultimedia to figure out why juk
isn't building. It appears that the reason is that taglib isn't
Fedora Core 1 doesn't have a taglib RPM, and taglib is not currently
in the package list for Fedora Core 2. So, I'm attaching a specfile
that can build the taglib 1.0 tarball. This may need some tweaking,
but anyway it's a start. taglib has no dependencies so it should be
low-overhead to maintain. I've tested it on my Core 1 system; with
the presence of this RPM, kdemultimedia at least attempts to build
The taglib tarball is at:
BTW the taglib homepage:

i have already rebuilt all kde 3.2 against qt 3.3.0 yesterday. This
new on will include juk of course. I will upload one soon on ftp.kde.org
I have kdemultimedia-3.2.0-1.3 installed from rawhide and juk is still
Running "rpm -q --filesbypkg kdemultimedia |grep juk" produces exactly
the same output as the one in the bug opening comment.
If the bug is fixed in an internal build, please disregard this comment.
