Description Kevin Fenzi 2007-07-17 21:24:26 UTC
When starting kphotoalbum, it pops up a dialog that says: 

"KPhotoAlbum does not seem to be build with support for all its features. The
following is a list indicating to you what you may miss:

Plug-ins available Yes
EXIF info supported Yes
SQL Database Support Yes
Sqlite Database Support (used for EXIF searches) No
MPEG video support No
Quicktime video support (aka mov) No
AVI video support No
ASF video support (aka wmv) No
Real Media No
Video Thumbnails support No

For details on how to solve this problem, please choose Help|KPhotoAlbum Feature
Status from the menus."

Some of those might not be possible to support, but sqlite and mpeg might be
easy. Formats that can't be supported because they aren't available in fedora
perhaps could be removed from the list, and/or the dialog could be disabled?

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 13:34:42 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 7 is nearing the end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 7. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '7'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 7's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 7 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. If possible, it is recommended that you try the newest available Fedora distribution to see if your bug still exists.

Please read the Release Notes for the newest Fedora distribution to make sure it will meet your needs:

The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
