Description Debarshi Ray 2008-08-24 11:37:39 EDT
Description of problem:

Mozilla Sunbird, like many other applications, uses a forked version of the Libical library. The library's upstream has been resurrected at http://freeassociation.sourceforge.net/ and work is on to merge the changes made by various projects into a single upstream library.

Can we make Fedora's sunbird package to build/work with the libical package shipped in Fedora?

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


Actual results:

Links against forked version of libical.

Expected results:

Should use system's version of libical.
Comment 1 Debarshi Ray 2008-09-06 13:37:12 EDT
For your information, Libical 0.32 is now in Fedora and they have moved their headers from /usr/include to /usr/include/libical. However /usr/include/ical.h has been retained (deprecated actually) for compatibility.
Comment 2 Lubomir Rintel 2008-09-24 12:19:45 EDT
