Description of problem:
When I am compiing xine-lib from freshrpms, %configure \ --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/includes \
with thesse option i am unale to link aginst -lXext
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpmbuild --rebuild xine-lib-from-freshrpmlatest.src.rpm
Actual Results: does not compile
Expected Results: worked with version 57.
I have installed xorg-x11-devel, I am able to compile xine-lib cvs by using
-I/usr/X11R6/include/X11/extensions/Xext.h instead off -lXext and disabling
Imagemagic. I have alos issued /sbin/ldconfig -v /usr/X11R6/lib as root.
libXext is provided in xorg-x11-libs, and the .so symlink is provided in the
xorg-x11-devel package, as they always have been. This has not changed in
You should consult with the Xine developers for the problem you are
experiencing, as this is not a bug in X.
Just as a heads up however, you should not hard code where the X libraries
and include files are, because they are not in that location in X11R7, which
is what Fedora Core 5 will be switching to very soon.
Setting status to "NOTABUG".
