Description Anthony Green 2008-02-16 01:19:16 UTC
Description of problem:
libffi was recently accepted into Fedora.  I've pushed it into rawhide and F-8.
g-wrap should build against this version of libffi.
Simply att `pkgconfig libffi --cflags` to the CFLAGS definition and it should
work (I tried this).

libffi provides libffi.so.5, whereas at least one dependent of g-wrap, guile-gnome-platform, depends on the libffi.so.4 currently shipped with g-wrap.

Xavier has not replied to this bug, so it seems that the safe option would be to push a new g-wrap package that uses the system libffi to Rawhide, rebuild guile-gnome-platform against it, and then we can consider pushing it back to F-10 if there is no problem.

Comment 4 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-12-28 03:26:22 UTC
Updated g-wrap and guile-gnome-platform built for Rawhide.
