arg, build system failed, will probably build tomorrow
Comment 2 John Thacker 2004-06-20 20:58:06 EDT
This actually isn't the right solution.  It's actually a bug in the
pkg-config file, libdv.pc, for libdv.  It's fixed upstream.

What happens in that the libdv people distribute a test application,
playdv, which plays DV files.  It depends on GTK+.  Their build
process incorrectly adds the GTK+ dependencies to the pkg-config file.

Since we don't ship playdv, we shouldn't actually depend on
gtk+-devel, and that's why rpmbuild doesn't pick it up.  The right
solution is to patch libdv.pc.in so that this doesn't happen.  (Which
they've already done in libdv CVS.)  See the following mail message:


As a side note, fixing this will fix the bogus gtk+ dependency in
gstreamer-plugins, since gstreamer-plugins uses libdv
Comment 3 John Thacker 2004-06-20 21:03:56 EDT
The only thing that needs to require GTK+ is libdv-tools, which
already does, in other words.
