Description Christophe Fergeau 2017-06-15 08:38:53 EDT
spice-gtk was using usbutils.pc to locate the usb.ids file automatically. Since it's gone, we need to hardcode the path to hwdata to find usb.ids.

I also noticed that usbutils-make-hwdata.patch is still patching usbutils.pc, which the .spec file then removes.
Comment 1 Lukáš Nykrýn 2017-06-15 09:00:59 EDT
To quote from usbutils git history:

"Most of the information in usb.ids is now contained in udev's hwdb. Read the information from the hwdb instead of usb.ids."
Comment 2 Lukáš Nykrýn 2017-06-15 09:05:03 EDT
Maybe you should ask hwdata package maintainer to provide the .pc files since they are actually shipping the usb.ids. In usbutils we should make a cleanup and remove the references once for all.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 04:14:21 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
