Description Martin Sourada 2008-08-22 13:03:59 UTC
Description of problem:
Setting a OptionEntry's long name to G_OPTION_REMAINING no longer works in glibmm 2.16.0 and later. It used to work fine in older releases. I'm not sure if this is the appropriate way to parse out the remaining command line arguments, if there's another way it should be documented and/or put in the options example.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run some program that parse remaining commandline arguments and uses glibmm, e.g. subtitleeditor, with adding some remaining argument, e.g. subtitleeditor <subtitle-filename>
Actual results:
The said program does not parse the argument.

Expected results:
The said program does parse the argument correctly, e.g. opens the <subtitle-filename> in subtitleeditor.

Additional info:
This is upstream bug:

I've been told this has been fixed in glibmm24-2.16.3, but would be probably better to update glibmm to latest bugfix release in the 2.16.x series (2.16.4). 

This blocks bug #459583 of subttitleeditor.

Comment 1 Martin Sourada 2008-08-22 19:40:20 UTC
I just noticed glibmm-2.16.4-1.fc9 is sitting in koji already for a month... Is there a reason why it hasn't been pushed to updates(-testing) yet?

Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2008-09-10 07:01:19 UTC
glibmm24-2.16.4-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
