[Bug 244486] New: avahi-compat-howl: recommended compatibility symlinks not present
  • From: bugzilla_noreply@xxxxxxxxxx

Summary: avahi-compat-howl: recommended compatibility symlinks
not present
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: Alpha 0plus
Platform: All
OS/Version: All
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: GNOME
AssignedTo: bnc-team-gnome@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

docs/COMPAT-LAYERS in the avahi source tree says:

Distributors that want full build system compatibility in addition to
ABI/API compatibility should:

1) Symlink the pkg-config file avahi-compat-howl.pc to howl.pc

2) Symlink $(includedir)/avahi-compat-libdns_sd/dns_sd.h to

The latter is present, but the first (howl.pc -> avahi-compat-howl.pc) is not.

Instead, the package has a different compatibility symlink for howl.h, which is
neither recommended nor even useful because it doesn't fix anything. You still
need -I/usr/include/avahi-compat-howl to compile things (but this comes in via
the .pc file and the original howl installs its headers into a subdirectory of
/usr/include, too).

Just for clarity: avahi-compat-libdns_sd.pc doesn't get a compatibility symlink
because the original mDNSResponder doesn't have a .pc file.
