Description Alexander Tsoy 2018-07-30 17:18:56 UTC
zemberek provider causes segmentation faults in applications. Can we disable it in enchant-1.6.1?
Comment 1 Alexander Tsoy 2018-07-30 17:33:38 UTC
zemberek cannot be disabled due to an error in configure script. Thus it requires a patch for and autoreconf.
Comment 2 Alexander Tsoy 2018-07-30 17:36:54 UTC
Also from the current git master contains:

if test "x$with_zemberek" = "xyes"; then
   echo "
The Zemberek Turkish spell-checking plugin is enabled. It is known
to cause crashes with WebKit. Use at your own discretion."

    app-text/enchant: really disable zemberek provider to avoid crashes
    Something trips up GSource iteration in main context with the
    zemberek provider. As we don't have zemberek-server anymore, just
    make sure it is not build wrongly due to configure bugs.

@Alexander - I took an approach that avoids the eautoreconf.
Lets fast-stabilize this fix.
