Hi, I'm trying to build FF3.1 beta w/ subpixel hinting through the BS. I've modified the spec file and added all the source files into the repository. However, I'm missing autoconf213 in the Opensuse 11.0 and 11.1 repositories. Sure enough though, its provided by the mozilla repo and not the official repository. So how can I link this particular RPM to my build environment? Is there a way to install this? Would appreciate some help! :)
There is a link that says something about linking to another project. More importantly, you might not be allowed to build it with subpixel hinting in obs as it violates patents. Or at the very least have potential legal problems. I'm sure there are others that can comment on the list.
Stephen, Thanks for the prompt reply, can you direct me to that link? As far as subpixel hinting is concerned, if it violates patents...I'll remove it.

Here is a link about the subpixel hinting stuff - http://opensuse-community.org/SubpixelHinting
As for the linking to other packages in other projects: Under the list of your current packages in your project (about the middle of the screen), there are 2 links. One is to add a new package, [Add Package], and the second is to link to another package in another project, [Link Package from other Project]. Once you click on it, you will see 3 boxes. The first one is the name of the project that you want to connect to, the second is the name of the package, and the third I usually leave blank, but its for if you want to name it differently in your local project.
Stephen, I found the right place to link the file, however...I couldn't quite add autoconf213 which is present in this link:- http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.0/noarch/autco.......
I tried adding "mozilla" and even "http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.0/" into the 1st line...and in the 2nd line I added the file name...autoconf.xxx. It still won't take..any suggestions?
What you need is the build service project name. Its probably something like Mozilla.
It could be "Mozilla", "mozilla" or "mozilla/openSUSE_11.0"...neither of them works..
