Description Rune Morling 2010-12-16 21:18:39 UTC
While trying to rebuild GConf2 2.32.1, we hit the error reported over at https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=634512 :

libtool: link: gcc -Os -g -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fstack-protector -Wall -g -O1 -o .libs/gsettings-data-convert gsettings-data-convert.o -pthread  ../gconf/.libs/libgconf-2.so -lORBit-2 -lgio-2.0 -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 -lgthread-2.0 -lrt -lglib-2.0 -pthread
gsettings-data-convert.o: In function `handle_file':
/home/am/conary/build/GConf/GConf-2.32.1/gsettings/gsettings-data-convert.c:162: undefined reference to `g_settings_get_range'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GConf 2.32.1
glib2 2.26.0

Additional info:

Looking at both http://git.gnome.org/browse/gconf/commit/?id=6d6704ea4143a335808b08e921a419bd4125d296 and http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=1043 it would appear that mclasen would perhaps be the proper person to assign this to, as I suspect it will become an issue if/when fc14 bumps to gnome 2.32.1 as well?

Bug opened here too as per nirik's suggestion in #fedora.

Comment 1 Rune Morling 2010-12-16 23:29:39 UTC
Just to be clear:

The issue is that a single line of code breaks the assumption that GConf2 2.32.1 can be rebuilt safely against glib 2.26.0, namely:

range = g_settings_get_range (settings, keys[j]);

(As mentioned in the b.g.o report, g_settings_get_range was introduced in glib-2.27.1).

Here's hoping that someone can figure out a nice fix and take it upstream so that others may benefit as well.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2012-08-16 20:26:08 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained.  At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.

(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this 
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen 
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that 
version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
