Yes, this is a known bug. Unfortunate, I cannot fix it right now.

I tried installing FC6test2 and failed horribly. Building the package in mock
for Fedora Extras on the redhat build systems fails. No configure script is

I am trying to resolve this issue, but it might have to wait until I have
managed to get an FC6 install working, or root access to someone's FC6 box/xenu
image. If you have one, or can give me access to one, let me know.

Try building this one on your machine:

The spec never finds the configure script that autoconf makes, but adding
another cd to the spec seems to work fine:

The configure fails though, presumably complaining about gtk, but I have the
-devel versions installed (may be an upstream issue, not sure):
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for EXTRA... no

Here are my gtk/glib versions:
$ rpm -q gtk2-devel glib2-devel

Any other info I can give you, let me know.
Comment 4 Paul Wouters 2006-09-21 13:17:40 EDT
Ahhhh. So the extra cd command fixes the problem for me. Thanks for that one.
not sure why it is needed, must be because of the cvs versioning and the
prep/build macros.

The next error is that a gaim file is missing. I just found out that gaim now
has a gaim-devel package containing the missing file, so I added the
BuildRequire: gaim-devel >= 2.0.0

I've fired off a new build request, so hopefully the package will be done soon.
