Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189855
undefined reference to `FT_GlyphSlot_Embolden' (with workaround)
Last modified: 2008-05-06 11:50:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Cannot compile several program anymore, like dbus (cvs version), kvirc (cvs
version) and my guess is all other programs that use libcairo (-lcairo in their
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(by the way, I think I had freetype-2.1.10-5.2.1 this morning which had the same
problem, tried to fix it by upgrading freetype but that didn't change anything).
I guess just compile any program that uses enough cairo functions hence must be
compiled with -lcairo. For me it's reproducible each time I tried to compile
dbus of kvirc.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. checkout dbus cvs
2. try to build it ...
undefined reference to `FT_GlyphSlot_Embolden'
You compiled successfully, have a nice day.
Prepending -lfreetype to -lcairo solves the issue. I guess libcairo should be
linking to libfreetype for the missing symbol right???
