Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2699
/usr/bin/libIDL-config is missing
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
libIDL is an independently distributable component, but
it's currently packaged _incorrectly_ with ORBit.
REPEAT BY: trying to compile Mozilla M5 on a generic
RedHat 6.0 distribution.
SYMPTOM: Can't find the script identified above, so
programs dependent on it can't link correctly.
WORKAROUND: Get the source RPM for ORBit. Configure
the "libIDL" package with "--prefix=/usr". Copy the
resulting libIDL-config script into /usr/bin.
I find this marking of this a low priority to be somewhat of a
problem. Mozilla is the next generation of web browsers to run on
Thanks for the work around but it strikes me that libIDL should be a
separate package required by ORBit.
Has been fixed for a while
