Description Gergan Penkov 2005-08-30 08:32:47 UTC
As Jorry Pratt said in I am
opening a new bug for this, because you are the maintener of gecko-sdk. 
Although I do not see, why should an application build against gecko-sdk
(exception to this is only the case with the binary mozilla-builds and the
binary-sdk), as the compilation time for gecko-sdk is the same as for mozilla or
mozilla-firefox and they provide all the libraries needed for all the other
applications, opposed to gecko-sdk.
There were some issues with the first patch, which I uploaded in bug #100597,
but I didn't update it there, because of what I mentioned earlier (and I totally
forgot about them). So here I'll upload an updated patch and ebuild which
resolves the issue, which Kevin DeKorte mentioned in (the problem was that in the
first patch I used a single rpath-tag, which left xpcom unresolved or resolved
to some other libraries).
Moreover I used the patch from bug #98828 (I named it cairo-fix.patch) in the
ebuild, in order to compile it and test it, because I have cairo-1.0.0 and
didn't want to downgrade all the gnome stuff, it applies clean and
mplayerplug-in works correctly, but I don't know if cairo-libraries are in some
way used.
The only other application in portage, which uses gecko-sdk, or the only one I
could find out is vlc. I could not build it because of bug #99813 (so I could
not try to make this builds against firefox or mozilla at this moment).

This is the ebuild for gecko-sdk-1.7.8, it uses the rpath.patch, which I'll
upload and cairo-fix.patch from bug #98828 (if >=cairo-0.9.0).

This is the rpath.patch for the gecko-sdk
Comment 3 Joe Jezak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-09 16:11:29 UTC
Gecko-sdk is actually just the mozilla ebuild with a different install
procedure.  Once a version of mozilla with the rpath fix in it goes stable, I'll
just take that and update gecko-sdk.  Is that acceptable?
Comment 4 Gergan Penkov 2005-09-09 16:20:38 UTC
Yes, of course :)
Only this is a little bit different 
grep -Flr "#RPATH_FIXER" --include=*.mk . | xargs sed -i -e \
Simply, because as you said the installation procedure is a little bit
different, therefore the both paths (lib and bin) should be added.
Comment 5 Joe Jezak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-09-25 20:24:51 UTC
cairo is fixed in gecko-sdk-1.7.12 thanks to az.  As soon as a version with the
rpath fix is stabled, we'll introduce it to gecko-sdk.
Comment 6 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-11-11 12:45:37 UTC
gecko-sdk will be removed from the tree along w/ mozilla.
