Description Philippe Troin 2008-05-12 23:21:07 UTC
xine-lib is multiarch (has xine-lib.x86_64 and xine-lib.i386), yet the plugins
packages are only provided for x86_64.
The missing packages are:


Package rev: 1.1.12-2.fc8


Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-05-13 12:18:45 UTC
True, but under what scenario(s) would one really want or need these?  I can't
think of any off the top of my head.

Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-13 12:59:31 UTC
32-bit apps can't use xine-lib-pulseaudio if you don't have the 32-bit version 
of it.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-05-13 14:35:54 UTC
ok, name one useful 32-bit xine-lib-based app? :)

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-05-13 14:49:52 UTC
fwiw, I acknowledge that the absense of the multilib-wise is a bug, I'm only
trying to gauge the severity/impact.

Comment 5 Philippe Troin 2008-05-13 18:56:50 UTC
For example, I run 32-bit xine on 64-bit in order to be able to use 32-bit
codecs from another well-known platform.

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2008-05-13 19:12:20 UTC
fwiw, I've yet to find anything that xine-lib-extras-nonfree (from livna)
doesn't support.

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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 8 Rex Dieter 2008-11-26 13:42:14 UTC
reassigning -> rawhide

Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2009-01-07 20:35:57 UTC
CC'ing mash-d00d notting, can we get
added to be considered multiarch?

Comment 10 Bill Nottingham 2009-01-07 20:51:44 UTC
Given that we do gstreamer plugins, makes sense.


Will be in rawhide at some point.
