From what I can gather in the forums and from my own experience, it's literally
impossible to compile KDE (kdelibs) with ALSA support. Why does the ebuild not
Since ARTS can be compiled against ALSA and KDE uses ARTS, the ebuild should
This is just the impression I get, though, and not an educated perspective.
Perhaps somebody with more knowledgeable about KDE should review this.
At least it should do as the Mozilla ebuild does with GTK2, and warn the user
that it may not compile so the user doesn't spend hours waiting for compilations
and trying to get it to work.
to which version of kdelibs do you refer? 3.0.x or 3.1.x?
do you refer to bug #11996?
if you have links to the problems mentioned in the forum, please post them.
This was referring to kdelibs 3.0.x.
Basically, (unconfirmed) I suspect it's because I hadn't emerged 'alsa-driver'
Surely this is something the ebuild should detect as a dependency, and should
notify the user to follow the alsa install document on gentoo.org prior to
emerging kde with alsa support, or to alternatively do 'USE="-alsa" emerge kde'
since i added this alsa-driver dep to kdelibs, everything should now be fine. and we
can close this bug. ;)
or is there anything i missed?
Fixed AFAIWK, if not please reopen.
Sorry, I forgot about this - it seems fixed and is in fact a dup of #11996, as Hannes points out.
