Description Lorenzo Hernández García-Hierro 2004-08-15 16:51:53 UTC
When updating the whole GNOME environment to the latest x86 stable ebuilds, it gets and compiles the net-www/mozilla package which is the 1.7.2 release.
Epiphany is one of the critical packages under the gnome metapackage that need to be updated, but when i try to compile it breaks saying that it should compile for some Mozilla versions, including the 1.7 releases and also that i'm using the $MOZILLA_VERSION release (1.7.2).
The net-www/epiphany (1.2.6) package's needs a little hack, you should add 1.7.2) MOZILLA_SNAPSHOT=17 ;; before the branch( line, sometimes it still makes noise and here's too late to get in touch and hack within it, so, i did a simple echo '>net-www/mozilla-1.7' in /etc/portage/package.mask and i've recompiled the whole mozilla package (poor of mine).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update your portage tree to the latest of TODAY.
2.emerge -au world (having GNOME 2.6.0 x86 stable and NO BMG EBUILDS).
3.emerge -u mozilla
4.emerge -u epiphany

Actual Results:  
Using $(sysconfdir)/gconf/schemas/ as install directory for schema files
checking for mkdtemp... yes
checking for compiler -fshort-wchar option... yes
checking for mozilla version... 1.7.2
configure: error:
Epiphany can be built using Mozilla 1.4, 1.4.1, 1.4.2, 1.5, 1.6 or 1.7,
but the version available is 1.7.2.
!!! ERROR: net-www/epiphany-1.2.6 failed.

Expected Results:

Created attachment 37500 [details, diff]
Patch for the Autoconf script of Epiphany 1.2.6 ebuild.

Adds the suggested lines for make the epiphany ebuild compatible with 1.7.2,
possibly further hacking is needed if sources have important changes.

This problem is currently breaking "emerge -u world" for users.  Any chance of getting it fixed?

Comment 4 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-08-17 09:40:59 UTC
Okay, I've added a fix as epiphany-1.2.6-r1.  It'll take about an hour to reach your local rsync mirror.

Please test, and confirm that it works for you.

Many thanks,

Patch appears to work after my rudimentary testing.

Works here, good enough for me.

Thanks for all your work Stuart.
