Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 157796
xmms-flac package is missing
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:06 EST
Description of problem:
xmms-flac is missing because of the removal of xmms from Core. It is possible to
use the development flac package, revert the changes related to xmms, add a new
patch, compile it, and have it work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum list xmms-flac
No xmms-flac package
A xmms-flac package
I notice xmms hasn't yet been added to the development extras package list. I
was forced to pick a component that doesn't exist.
Created attachment 114399 [details]
Patch to fix a xmms crash related to a double freeing of memory while xmms is starting
Created attachment 114400 [details]
Patch for the flac-1.1.2-25 spec file to add xmms support back in
This spec file patch depends on the previous patch I submitted.
We cannot add xmms back to core, which is a build requirement for this. Thus
our only option is to add the flac source to a SRPM package named xmms-flac,
build it, and package only the xmms-flac portion.
I'm adding a xmms-flac Bugzilla component now. Someone else needs to make this
I wasn't asking for xmms to go back to go back into Core. I was asking for it in
Extras, which xmms got moved to. Whoever builds the package will have to track
the flac package.
I've just created an xmms-flac "standalone" package, which should appear in
Extras development soon.
Thanks Matthias Saou
It has been over a week and still no xmms-flac in Extras.
Maybe this slipped through when the build system was doing strange things. I'll
look into it now, and close the ticket only once the package is really built.
Thanks for noticing ;-)
I have confirmed it is now in the extras development and 4 directories.
