Description Bill Maniatty 2001-11-23 23:10:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
When KDEPIM is installed, the librmm module is installed but the header
files are not.
In Redhat 7.1 the include files appeared in /usr/include/rmm/
(e.g. /usr/include/rmm/Envelope.h)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Download KNewMail from
2.Gunzip and Untar the bundle in a directory
3.Run .configure and then make, and make install

Actual Results:  Can't build because rmm/Envelope.h include cannot be

Expected Results:  Successful build

Additional info:

I was torn asto whether it is a bug or not, and I've decided that it is,
since the
header/include files should be installed with the libarry to promote
software reuse.
I think the include files need to be in the regular rpm, not just the
source rpm for
kdepim.   The 7.1 style packaging was correct in my opinion.

As a work around,  one can
1) unpack the kdepim src and find the rmm include files
2) mkdir /usr/include/rmm directory and
3) copy the header files into it

librmm is no longer part of kdepim and was most probably dropped altogether
