Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1474171
Build konqueror on all architectures
Last modified: 2018-03-30 09:12:40 EDT
As only webenginepart actually uses QtWebEngine, with a minor patch to the build system, it is actually possible to use konqueror with khtmlpart (yeah, I know) or, even better, a KF5-based version of kwebkitpart (see bug 1474170).

Patch for rawhide
Scratch build on all arches:
I'm ok with the proposed changed here, minus the kwebkitpart dependency (we'll need to handle that differently and separate I think)
Or, we can wait for kwebkitpart to get sorted out and do it all at once.

Mixed feelings on this. Technically konqueror still functions fine as an all-in-one file manager/viewer/editor with the other KParts (dolphinpart, katepart, okularpart, oktetapart, etc.). OTOH as a web browser it is only minimally usable with only khtmlpart; most modern websites won't display properly with it.
However, the thought just occurred to me that, in whatever order we do this, perhaps the webenginepart should be a separate subpackage (which would be Recommended or Required by the konqueror package on %qt5_qtwebengine_arches).
Let me know your thoughts on these points and I can respin the patch.
Now that kwebkitpart is updated to KF5, how do you want to proceed with this?
1) Separate subpackage for kwebenginepart?
2) Hard or soft dep on kwebkitpart (or kwebenginepart if yes above) depending on arch?
I think option 2 seems preferable for now.
Looks like will require some patching, konqueror's buildsystem currently considers webengine an required, non-optional, component.
That's already part of my patch; I'm rebasing it now for 17.12.3.

Thanks, opted for both afterall, may be useful beyond just konqueror.
