Description Sjoerd Mullender 2010-12-04 12:55:10 UTC
Description of problem:
The pkg-config information for package libgcal is incorrect.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.pkg-config --cflags libgcal
Actual results:
-I/usr/include/libgcal/libgcal -I/usr/include/libxml2

Expected results:
-I/usr/include/libgcal -I/usr/include/libxml2

Additional info:
Since the include file for libgcal is installed in the directory /usr/include/libgcal, that should be the directory that pkg-config will tell the compiler to use, not a non-existent subdirectory.

Comment 1 Chris Frey 2011-03-15 05:11:53 UTC
I ran into this one too.  It is easy to fix.  Just remove the patch from the rpm spec file: libgcal--pc_include_fix.diff.

The patch is no longer a fix, since this is mostly done by 0.9.6 already.

Comment 8 Chris Frey 2011-06-27 23:20:31 UTC
Oy... I miss the days when actually fixing a bug and getting confirmation that it was fixed was enough to get it into a distro. :-)

These days you can't even report a bug without setting up some account with a password you forget every time you need to report a new bug.  And now we need two accounts, one on bugzilla and one on fedoraproject.  I can now forget two passwords per bug.  (Ubuntu is even worse... I can't even *get* an account on some of their services, due to some oddity in their server setups.)

Does no one see what this is doing to random contributors?  Does no one see what this is doing to Fedora?  This bug still exists in Fedora 14.

I know it's not your fault, but unless someone speaks up, this behaviour just keeps on going and going. :-)

Comment 9 Chris Frey 2011-06-28 00:39:28 UTC
I added a comment, but had trouble signing up.  Hopefully an anonymous comment is sufficient.

Comment 10 Mario Santagiuliana 2011-06-28 08:58:25 UTC
I think two registration are necessary because in this way a person can report a bug without subscribe the Fedora Controbutors License Agreement and bodhi system permits to leave a positive or negative karma in anonymous way.

If a contributor sign up the CLA and log in the bodhi the positive feedback is count and if the package receive 3 points it will push in stable. If the package receive no feedback I can push in stable after a week.
For more info:

The new package for fedora 14 should resolve this bug, it works for me...
