Description t35t0r 2006-07-11 22:39:16 UTC
mplayerplugin-3.25-r1 doesn't have the gecko-sdk use flag anymore, why? The README and INSTALL file both say that gecko-sdk can be used. I use mozilla-firefox-bin and have gecko-sdk and don't want to install mozilla-firefox . I like using an official build of mozilla-firefox because it's easier to post bugs. Having both on a system is extra bloat.

I downloaded the mplayerplug-in 3.25 source and did:

./configure --enable-wmp --enable-qt --enable-rm --enable-gmp --with-gecko-sdk=/usr/lib/gecko-sdk

and the plugins compiled just fine. So what's the big idea here?

  Removed moz/gecko-sdk references and fixed bug #139838.

I saw that bug in the changelog already, what does that have to do with the gecko-sdk not being in the use flags? It was in the use flags for 3.25 so why not for -r1, the source is the same and the author doesn't make any mention not to use gecko-sdk any more.
Comment 4 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-12 06:54:31 UTC
gecko-sdk will be removed from portage, no support/use flags for it any more. Ditto for mozilla.
