Just pulled down the packages (including the alpha5 samba4 package) and
started building. I haven't got to the kde libraries yet (that build will
probably take awhile) but on the packages above, I found the following:
- openssl-devel depends on krb5-devel, but heimdal-devel conflicts with
krb5-devel; should it provide it or do we need a virtual provides for
I'm not sure what the best way to handle this interaction is. This
build (due to the OpenSSL licence) avoids using OpenSSL as a build
depencency on Heimdal.
I'm also not sure if the OpenSSL dependency on krb5 is useful anyway -
but we might be stuck with it. (At one point it enabled an experimantal
krb5-in-SSL hack, which only OpenSSL supported).
- heimdal seemed to be missing a file directive for the dir.gz info
- everything seems fine here so far...
- didn't list the popt requirement, so initially I built without it and the
packaging failed due to missing binaries (which required popt-devel)
- libmapi-devel should depend on libmapi-0.7... rather than
Thanks. I'll look into it.
I've attached my spec file diffs in case you want to see (though
now I see
you've already fixed the libmapi-libs problem I saw)...
Thanks for packaging this stuff, I really hope the MAPI Akonadi code works;
