Description of problem:
Would it be possible to update libgsf. I am trying to comile gnucash2. It needs libgoffice and libgoffice-0.1 needs at least libgsf-1.13.1
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Well the 1.13 series is technically "unstable", and I don't want to get into
supporting an unstable version. 1.12-3 was only released in september. I'm
reluctant to move to 1.13.
I would like to add a me too or +1 to this ticket, I would like to update
gnumeric in extras to 1.6 which needs libgoffice-0.1.x which needs libgsf >=
1.13.2 . Please reconcider.
As an alternative I might create a libgsf13 package, whot is you opinion on that?
I'm not in favour of putting in a 1.13 under-development package until it's 1.14
as I don't need the pain of api changes right now for libwpd->OOo and whatever
else is lurking in the grass. A libgsf13 package sounds good
In the meantime I've made a special libgsf113 package for extras which can be
installed next to the core libgsf without any problems. See bug 174266 for the
extras review. I've also created a goffice package for extras, see Bug 174267
for the review.
hmm, one of my more gung-ho co-workers has upgraded it anyway :-)
Could you add an Obsoletes libgsf113(-devel) to it so that it get rids of
libgsf113, this doesn't conflict but ldd on something linked to libgsf might get
the extra versions as that adds /usr/lib(64)/libgsf-1.13/lib to the ldpath.
I'll update goffice and gnumeric to build against the new in core package (not
set a special PKGCONFIG path and change requires).
