Description Niels de Vos 2012-05-27 06:33:07 EDT
Created attachment 587064 [details]
check and use python2.7-config instead of python-config

Description of problem:
Building wireshark-1.6.8-1 on fedora 16 fails with the following error:

checking for python-config... no
configure: error: "python-config not found"

(from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4095828)

python-devel provides python2.7-config, but not python-config. The attached patch makes it possible to build wireshark again.

Test-build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4106108
            (includes some additional, non-intrusive patches too)
Comment 1 Jan Safranek 2012-05-29 09:39:44 EDT
I strongly prefer python being fixed. It was fixed in F15 and F17, just F16 update is missing. See bug #824303.
