mutt configured for aspell, but built without support
Last modified: 2008-06-25 06:40:02 EDT
Description of problem:
mutt is explicitely configured for aspell (instead of ispell) in the SPEC file,
but it doesn't even have support for either built in.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mutt -v
- It looks like mutt requires the presence of an ispell binary in order to
build support for it. Stupid, huh? So, first line fix would be:
(if it is really desired, but why not?).
- Perhaps ./configure should be patched to also detect the aspell binary. The
ispell binary it detects here (with the above fix) is the comaptibility script.
- I checked this with the F8 SRPM, but it should be valid for all current
builds, i.e. F8, F9, rawhide^Wdevelopment.
That's just a cosmetic issue. -ISPELL in the output means there is no hardcoded
path in mutt, but the support is still compiled in.
In /etc/Muttrc is the following line to use the aspell's email mode.
set ispell="/usr/bin/aspell --mode=email check"
mutt-1.5.18-3.fc10 buildrequires aspell.
