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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build linphone
Internal copy of gsm lib is used.
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.
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.
Linphone linked against the system GSM library should be available in the next
batch of packages.
That was quick! Thank you!
