Description Håvard Kvålen 2002-10-02 06:37:24 EDT
The xmms src rpm contains a dummy plugin that is supposed to inform users that
this version of xmms don't play mpeg audio.  Unfortunately this plugin does not
get installed due to an error in the spec file.

Pseudo patch:
-install -m 755 libzz_mp3.so %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/xmms/Input
+install -m 755 libzz_mp3.so %{buildroot}%{_libdir}/xmms/Input

While I'm at it, there are a couple of other issues with the spec file:
* It should have automake14 and autoconf213 in BuildRequires
* Having the skin subpackage depend on a specific xmms version seems a bit 
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2002-10-02 12:17:31 EDT

The problem with requiring automake14 and autoconf213 means that it will break
on systems that have automake-1.4 and autoconf-2.13 installed. So it needs to
require /usr/bin/automake-1.4, etc.
Comment 2 Håvard Kvålen 2002-10-02 12:45:24 EDT
Most automake-1.4 packages won't work anyway since they usually don't have any
executables named automake-1.4.  But nevermind, it's a very minor issue.
Comment 3 Richard Allen 2002-10-03 07:58:44 EDT
This is prehaps a blessing ? :)  Now we dont get any file conflicts when
installing rpm's that contain the mp3 input files from the RH 7.3 version of xmms ;)
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2002-10-03 10:51:28 EDT
There aren't any file conflicts anyway.

I just thought of a better solution to make everybody happy. Why not modify xmms
to make it download/install automatically any missing plugin. The user would of
course be warned about the legal issues and could accept or refuse the plugin.
Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2003-02-07 12:45:45 EST
This has been fixed in the rawhide xmms packages for a while.
