Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 222946
Update request: flac 1.1.3
Last modified: 2009-09-21 15:54:58 EDT
Description of problem:
Both FC-6 and Rawhide still has flac 1.1.2. The latest version, 1.1.3, provides
among other things higher compression ratio and error recovery. Could this be
pushed at least into Rawhide?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I looked a bit into this, and found that flac is required by vorbis-tools and
gstreamer-plugins-good. And both don't work with flac 1.1.3, since it changed API
again. So this will have to wait until dependencies are updated to work with
patch for gstreamer-plugins-good is in

I found that I needed to update some of the flac patches, and also had to make
sure that libFLAC.so is linked against libogg.so, otherwise the gst-plugins-good
configure test will fail.
Since this affects a good chunk of extras packages:
it would probably be a good idea to give a heads-up on fedora-maintainers
Heads-up sent to the list. Could you perhaps host test 1.1.3 RPMs somewhere?
Makes it easier for package maintainers to verify their packages work.

I've put the flac.spec there too, now.
* Tue Feb 13 2007 - Bastien Nocera <email@example.com> - 1.1.3-1
- Update with work from Matthias Clasen <firstname.lastname@example.org> up
to upstream 1.1.3 (#229462)
- Remove xmmx-flac Obsolete, as we don't ship the xmms plugin
flac-1.1.4 was released, there are no API changes, should be pretty easy to update.
1.1.4 is building now.
graveman seems to compile against the new version, however I did not succeed
with audacity. So I will build it without flac for now.
