Description Matthias Saou 2006-05-31 11:55:12 EDT
The current lua package now uses the pkgconfig .pc file instead of the no longer
included lua-config script. A requirement on pkgconfig is now needed, but it
might then be a good time to split lua and lua-devel into two since it would
currently mean adding a development type of requirement to a main package.

I've made this block the FE-BuildReq bug since I discovered this problem when
looking at the lighttpd build logs, which indicated a failure because of
pkgconfig not being installed when trying to enable lua support.

Could you provide some more details? maybe a build log etc?

If you go here:


lua builds without the need for pkg-config. At no time during the build is
pkg-config called. 
Comment 2 Michael J Knox 2006-05-31 15:43:05 EDT
Cancel that. I just clicked to what you meant. 

Will push a rebuild tonight. 
Comment 3 Michael J Knox 2006-05-31 16:02:16 EDT
Fixed in lua-5.1-4. 
Comment 4 Matthias Saou 2006-05-31 20:12:09 EDT
But what about the idea of splitting off a real -devel sub-package? When there
were no dependencies and only a static library, it didn't make much sense, but
now I really think it does.

OK, I have split it out and it should be in the repos in the next push. Thanks!
