Description Bart Massey 2006-04-17 18:01:08 UTC
Some of the XCB demos don't link against enough libraries now that they've been
split out.  Here's a patch to xcb-demo/Makefile.am .  See also Bug 6629 for a
harder variant of this problem.

Patch for xcb-demo/Makefile.am to include new library dependencies

Sorry about pasting it in the earlier comment.	Bugzilla always confuses me.
Comment 2 Vincent Torri 2006-04-17 18:26:01 UTC
as you said in bug #6629, there will be a problem for each program based on XCB
and that will use a splitted extension.

I don't think that adding -l flags is the best way, as the name and the path of
the lib can change in future release (maybe). I think it is better to get that
name during the configure script. That's why I prefer providing a .pc file for
each splitted lib.
Comment 3 Bart Massey 2006-04-18 16:18:47 UTC
My patch is a workaround until Josh finishes generating proper pkgconfigs for
everything.  I needed to be able to build the demos in the meantime.
Comment 4 Vincent Torri 2006-04-23 17:41:48 UTC
i was fed up with that thing. So i've attached an archive below. There is the
diff of the current repository (configure.ac, toplevel Makefile.am, and the
vpath stuff. This one should not be here, but I was lazy and I didn't removed it
:), and all the needed .pc.in

I've made all the changes in the xcb-utils and xcb-demos dirs. It compiles fine
and seems to work, too.

Before this patch (or a part) goes into the repository, could you please look at
the .pc.in files. No need to add an xcb requirement, for example ?

Comment 6 Josh Triplett 2006-04-28 07:38:35 UTC
Fixed by git commit 661eb7d56a3cd2ee1277558f66500e8d76793055 (which adds
pkg-config files) and git commit d94a7cdfb5f856e31009ae9769128634f6b714b0 (which
uses the new pkg-config files in xcb-demo).
