maemo.org Bugzilla – Full Text Bug Listing
|Summary:||Remove Scratchboxism in wpeditor packaging|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] Utilities||Reporter:||Carsten Munk <carsten.munk>|
|Status:||RESOLVED FIXED||QA Contact:||notes-bugs|
SOFTWARE VERSION: 5.0-beta2 SDK STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: Building wpeditor outside Scratchbox (Debian/Ubuntu) in typical build environment (build-essentials and dependancies installed), see http://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/build-essential EXPECTED OUTCOME: Ability to build wpeditor ACTUAL OUTCOME: Fails to build due to assumption that automake, autoconf and libtool is installed in typical build environments, which Scratchbox has, but Debian, Ubuntu and others do not - a scratchboxism (or sb-will-have-it-ism). REPRODUCIBILITY: always EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: OTHER COMMENTS: Fixing this is a matter of adding ', autoconf, automake, libtool' to Build-Depends in wpeditor packaging. Adding this fix will make us be able to remove the only delta to wpeditor in the packaging we have to maintain in Mer and would allow us and others to directly use the wpeditor packaging outside of Maemo without modification. Use of libtool, autoconf and automake can be seen in 'autogen.sh' (autoreconf calls it) and debian/rules rule and hence package should build-depend on them as these tools are not part of a typical build environment.

This has been fixed in package wpeditor 3.50-1+0m5 which is part of the internal build version 2009.51-8 (Note: 2009 is the year, and the number after is the week.) A future public update released with the year/week later than this internal build version will include the fix. (This is not always already the next public update.) Please verify that this new version fixes the bug by marking this bug report as VERIFIED after the public update has been released and if you have some time. To answer popular followup questions: * Nokia does not announce release dates of public updates in advance. * There is currently no access to these internal, non-public build versions. A Brainstorm proposal to change this exists at http://maemo.org/community/brainstorm/view/undelayed_bugfix_releases_for_nokia_open_source_packages-002/
(Fix not included in today's 2.2009.51-1 update => updating Version field)
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the fix will be available to users). Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
