Opening k3b on 13.1 it complains it cannot find mad decoder. Checking, I

I think it is prohibited due to patents.

What's different legally that allows k3b-codecs for KDE4 to be available in
Packman but not for KDE3?

It is not prohibited in Packman, it was just removed from there when KDE4 came
to replace KDE3. You can ask the Packman maintainers to restore it, I have no
influence there.

If a real obstacle exists, is there any chance putting the TDE binary in the
libpath would work? It seems like since both KDE3 and TDE cannot coexist on
the same system that there possibly could be a significant binary compatability.

If one really needs it, there are old rpm packages on the net:

OK, that works - thanks Ilya.

I still want to know what I need to set up kde3 build in buildservice :)



OK,

Please confirm for me so I understand. The kde3-k3b-codecs package is just a subpackage of kde3-k3b? The only reason the kde3-k3b package does not work with mad (and the rest) is because the required files are not copied in the 'files' section of the .spec file? Currently, the only files made part of kde3-k3b are:

/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/libk3bexternalencoder.la
/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/libk3bexternalencoder.so
/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/libk3bflacdecoder.la
/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/libk3bflacdecoder.so
/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/libk3boggvorbisencoder.la

/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/kfile_k3b.so
/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/kfile_k3b.la
/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/kio_videodvd.so

/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/libk3bmpcdecoder.so
/opt/kde3/%_lib/kde3/libk3bmpcdecoder.la

Why not simply restore the additional files here and that would get rid of the need for the codecs file altogether?
