Description of problem:
linphone comes with a local copy of libgsm and links it in statically. Now that libgsm is available as a separate package (see bug 239770), it'd be nice if linphone used it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build linphone

Actual Results:
Internal copy of gsm lib is used.

Expected Results:
System gsm lib should be used.

Unfortunately GSM does not exist in Fedora as a separate library.  It is in the
repository which must not be named.  I've been considering for a while whether
linphone should move there anyway so that ffmpeg can be used to compile in
support for video.

Comment 2 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2007-05-13 13:06:48 UTC
You should read more carefully. I've just told you that it *IS* available in
Fedora. In fact, it's just been built. See the bugzilla link I gave above.

Comment 3 Jeffrey C. Ollie 2007-05-16 01:57:29 UTC
Linphone linked against the system GSM library should be available in the next
batch of packages.

That was quick! Thank you!
