this log show the diff between symbols available in the fedora elf
the rpmfusion one. The rpmfusion one has symbols added, which is what we could
expect with the ffmpeg-devel addition as BR (along with the expat-devel fix
that seems to be enought to link to the system shared expat and added the XML
This has been done on the Fedora version - expat is required by svgview,
we remove from the package after %build, so for wxsvg-freeworld we only need a
The question is then:
Are theses symbols exposed to the API or only used internaly from the wxsvg
library. At this time I'm not sure about how to check (there is a need to check
the wxsvg-devel header at least). But still the symbols removal is suspect.
(why adding BR will remove symbols?). And maybe some code is conditionalized.
only files which contain '#ifdef USE_FFMPEG' are:
I've taken a look but can't see any immediate reason as to why symbols would be
removed... There's lots of code within functions that have been conditionality,
but apart from this:
not much should be changing.
for now that would be fine to have the expat-devel added to the
and the expat sources removed between configure and make (so we are sure not to
use the internals headers at fedora wxsvg built time).
Then we will compare the two built more easily.
done on rawhide, I'm requesting
a F-10 update as soon as it's done building.
(Koji build for rawhide:
If we cannot assure ABI from the fedora to the rpmfusion package to
preserved, then we might work on another solution with a library soname change
(rename). but fedora packages that will use fedora wxsvg won't be able to use
That makes me wonder which package "can" use wxsvg and if a ffmpeg-less
of wxsvg is "at the end" usable.
As long as a program uses the non-ffmpeg
parts of wxsvg, it works fine - I've
tested svgview and it displays a few test SVGs (mostly) OK, but that seems to
be a bug with the program itself and not because of the lack of ffmpeg.
I've created a package with a different soname here:
I've tested it with dvdstyler and it works well.
