Summary: FLAC dependency isn't mentioned anywhere and can cause
Platform: Gentoo Packages
AssignedTo: kde-multimedia at kde.org
ReportedBy: holger.benl at gmx.de
Version: (using KDE KDE 3.2.0)
Installed from: Gentoo Packages
Compiler: gcc 3.2.1
I tried to compile kdemultimedia-3.2 and it failed with some
error messages that mentioned FLAC (haven't got the output
here anymore, sorry), so I updated flac (from 1.0.4 to 1.1),
tried to compile again and this time it worked.
Obviously kdemultimedia uses FLAC (for a kfile-plugin), but
that (optional?) dependency is neither mentioned in
"./configure --help" nor on the KDE website with the
dependencies of KDE 3.2.
Furthermore, it seems to need the 1.1 version of FLAC, but the
configure script only seems to check whether FLAC is installed
or not, but not whether it is recent enough.
