Description Fredrik Tolf 2006-09-28 11:55:06 UTC
Yelp currently depends explicitly on www-client/mozilla-firefox, which causes problems if one uses mozilla-firefox-bin instead.
Comment 1 Daniel Gryniewicz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-09-28 11:57:25 UTC
yelp cannot be built against firefox-bin, only firefox.

Why must yelp have firefox?  In my 64-bit environment, when firefox-bin is replaced by firefox, this breaks plugins which depend on the 32-bit nature of firefox-bin.
Comment 4 Rémi Cardona gentoo-dev 2008-04-05 13:43:51 UTC
Because firefox-bin does not provide the needed libraries and headers to build yelp. Simple.
