Description Zach Welch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-11-28 01:07:30 UTC
I tried to emerge libbonoboui and received an error compiling. As per irc
discussion with spider this evening, the determination was that the compiler
was unable to find the libxml2 header directory.

By adding the following hack to the libbonoboui- ebuild, I was able to
work around this problem:

CFLAGS="${CFLAGS} -I/usr/include/libxml2"

Thanks, Spider. :)
Comment 1 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-11-28 01:33:31 UTC
okay, I've commited the "fixed" ebuild, but we should probably get this fixed
Comment 2 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-11-29 10:29:57 UTC
This is probably a only problem, which is a release for the 2.1 version
: basicly it is 2.0.3 with possible gtk-2.1 extensions. We could remove it and
just use 2.0.3.

I checked the build btw and it just lacks a few lines in a a few Makefiles.
Comment 3 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-11-29 10:58:21 UTC
okay, honestly the correct fix is to patch the Makefiles accordingly, but since
the current hack works, lets just keep it : )

Resolving this as Wontfix since we wont fix the proper way ;)
Comment 4 Zach Welch (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-11-29 15:54:07 UTC
i am cool with this resolution, but please think about sending a brief note to the
package maintainers or gnome-dev lists so it is sure to be corrected in the next
release.  Don't assume they'll notice and fix it on their own. :)  Thanks.

And marking as verified, because the fix did work for me.
Comment 5 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-11-29 16:25:49 UTC
I have installed before without this problem, so i suppose something
else broke it. I should check the 2.1 version if it's still a problem (thats the
latest and greatest really).
