Description kavol 2007-01-13 13:47:51 UTC

I have found that dosbox (games-emulation/dosbox-0.65) does not start if I have compiled sdl (media-libs/libsdl-1.2.11) with "noaudio" USE flag enabled:

$ dosbox
Exit to error: Can't init SDL SDL not built with audio support

I guess the dosbox ebuild should detect this via the 'built_with_use' function.

Reproducible: Always

if use noaudio || use novideo || use nojoystick ; then
    ewarn "Since you've chosen to turn off some of libsdl's functionality,"
    ewarn "don't bother filing libsdl-related bugs until trying to remerge"
    ewarn "libsdl without the no* flags in USE.  You need to know what"
    ewarn "you're doing to selectively turn off parts of libsdl."
    epause 30

did you notice that I am reporting bug against dosbox, not against libsdl?

if there is a known issue and solution what is the reason not to solve it?

Did you notice the warning libsdl gave you about no* flags? Apparently not.
