Missing BuildRequires in spec file.
Last modified: 2013-10-20 18:41:47 EDT
Description of problem:
rhythmbox is missing some BuildRequires in the spec file. I was investigating
why audioscrobbler support hadn't been built in (it defaults to enabled in
configure unless its dependancies aren't installed), but came across a few
problems when building.
Firstly, it is missing a BuildRequires on gstreamer-devel. When it came to
building, and I found I hadn't installed gstreamer-devel, the build failed. As
you well know, rpmbuild usually grunts if you are missing a BuildRequire :)
Secondly, it is missing a build dependancy on libtool. The build fails quite
late in because of this.
Thirdly, the executable links against libsoup but the build fails unless
libsoup-devel is installed. As a result, I suspect this may be a BuildRequire also.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -e gstreamer-devel libtool libsoup-devel
2. rpmbuild --rebuild rhythmbox-0.9.4-2.src.rpm
3. See it fail until you install at least gstreamer-devel, libtool and
I am sorry for such a pedantic bug report!
Ooops, audioscrobbler support *had* been built in, the location had changed
since rhythmbox 0.9.3, but the BuildRequires are still outstanding.
