Description Rex Dieter 2007-12-04 19:16:59 UTC
Just a heads-up since kdemultimedia will be replaced by it's kde4 counterpart
soon.  We will likely keep some sort of compat kdemultimedia3 pkg around, I'd
rather pkg's not depend on it unless absolutely necessary.

Looks like this BR can be dropped with only minimal patching (sample patch

sorry for not getting around to this sooner, but I've been distracted lately
working on other really cool stuff, see:

However today I got this mail resulting in my attention being focussed on this


taxipilot has broken dependencies in the development tree:
On ppc:
	taxipilot - 0.9.2-4.fc9.ppc requires libartsmodulessynth.so.0
	taxipilot - 0.9.2-4.fc9.ppc requires libartsgui_kde.so.0
	taxipilot - 0.9.2-4.fc9.ppc requires libartsmodules.so.0
	taxipilot - 0.9.2-4.fc9.ppc requires libartsmoduleseffects.so.0
	taxipilot - 0.9.2-4.fc9.ppc requires libartsmidi_idl.so.0
	taxipilot - 0.9.2-4.fc9.ppc requires libartsmodulesmixers.so.0
	taxipilot - 0.9.2-4.fc9.ppc requires libartsbuilder.so.0
	taxipilot - 0.9.2-4.fc9.ppc requires libartsgui_idl.so.0
	taxipilot - 0.9.2-4.fc9.ppc requires libartsmodulescommon.so.0


Etc. however I'm afraid that things aren't as easy as applying your patch.
Indeed the taxipilot binary itself doesn't need -lartsmodules -lsoundserver_idl
-lmcop_mt, actually your patch mirrors one already in the taxipilot which
resolves a number of unresolved non weak symbol warnings in the included
libEXT_wavpo.so file:

So you see its not the taxipilot binary itself which needs -lartsmodules
-lsoundserver_idl -lmcop_mt, but the included libEXT_wavpo.so file which
taxipilot uses. I know its strange an application shipping part of private code
as a .so file, but thats how upstream has created it.

So what now?

Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2007-12-15 13:15:52 UTC
The reason the code is in a .so file is because it isn't called directly by 
taxipilot, instead taxipilot calls aRts and asks it to use the aRts plugin it 
installs, aRts then dlopens the plugin.

I think we may need a kdemultimedia3 compat package. :-( I also think there 
might be other applications which expect the aRts plugins provided by 
kdemultimedia3 to be there, even if they don't link them explicitly (and thus 
don't show up in the broken deps report), given that aRts plugins are dlopened 
at runtime.

Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2007-12-18 17:26:47 UTC
Uh, the -lsoundserver_idl -lartsflow libraries you're linking to in your 
taxipilot-0.9.1-weaksym.patch are actually in arts-devel, not 
kdemultimedia3-devel. So are you really SURE Rex's patch to remove the 
kdemultimedia3 BRs is not enough?

Ah, your right! A fixed version is on its way to rawhide, closing.
