Description Chris Ball 2007-08-16 20:45:54 UTC

Description of problem:
The gtksourceview2 package builds and runs fine on Fedora 7, but the specfile
blocks the build because the glib2 version isn't >2.13.6.  Could the
glib2_version %define be relaxed to 2.12.11, which is what's in F7, please?

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

Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-16 20:49:24 UTC
I think it needs the later glib for the GRegex apis.  

Comment 2 Chris Ball 2007-08-16 20:57:03 UTC
Thanks for the quick reply, Ray.

> I think it needs the later glib for the GRegex apis.  

That's right, but yet it built on my F7 machine and works, so I think something
in the build only uses that API if it's available.  Looking at
gtksourceview/regex/, I think it falls back on pcre if the glib version isn't there.

(Some context:  I'm using gtksourceview2 on OLPC, and it would be nice not to
have to maintain a specfile fork.)

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-08-16 21:07:03 UTC
Ah okay, feel free to commit a change that lowers the glib required version.  I
don't think that should cause any problems.

Although presumably you'll have to fork anyway since it's going to be building
into a different branch (and will have separate %changelog entries etc) ? 

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-04 13:36:57 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as
a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.

If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 07:41:21 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '8'.

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 8'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 8 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 to the applicable version.  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.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 07:12:51 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
