Description Mikhail Zabaluev 2006-02-20 01:24:19 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #326683 +++

The point to keep the C++ configure stuff in gst-plugins-ugly may be gone as well.
Comment 1 Jan Schmidt 2006-02-27 15:50:21 UTC
Brian, can you comment on this bug? Should we not be adding the CXX tag here?

unlike the others, gst-plugins-ugly does contain a plugin that uses c++. It will become a problem again for gst-plugins-good at some point too, because there are other plugins in gst-plugins-bad that will probably move there eventually.
Comment 2 Brian Cameron 2006-02-28 01:34:44 UTC
Is the C++ tag in the AS_LIBTOOL_TAGS macro really needed to build the C++ 
plugins?  What breaks if the C++ argument is missing?  The duplicate bug explains what breaks when you add it.  If the C++ tag needs to go back in, then I can take a look at this again and see if there's another way I can fix the Solaris build problem.

I have no idea - it's all autotools voodoo pain to me - I was hoping you'd know :)
Comment 4 Brian Cameron 2006-03-03 02:46:40 UTC
Sorry, I don't know if it is needed.  You'll have to test and see.  If it is really needed for GStreamer to build properly, and this breaks the Solaris build again, then I'll find another way to fix the Solaris build.

But if GStreamer builds fine without the option, I don't see any need for adding it.

CC'ing thomas and andy for comment then - they're the dudes who are supposed to understand what this macro does.

Comment 6 Andy Wingo 2006-03-04 14:37:28 UTC
I'll take this one, the macro is my fault :)
Comment 7 Christian Kirbach 2006-03-06 11:49:35 UTC
I can see the build problem here as well, and the patch from Bug #326683 remedies.

remove CXX autoconf foo

unbreaks the build :)

        Patch by: Christian Kirbach

          Remove CXX tag from AS_LIBTOOL_TAGS, just like we did for
          -good. Fixes build on some systems (#331838).
Comment 10 Jan Schmidt 2006-03-27 13:25:27 UTC
I thought Andy was going to take this one, and actually fix it rather than disabling the CXX tag?
Comment 11 Tim-Philipp Müller 2006-03-27 13:37:33 UTC
Ah, I didn't know there was anything else to fix. We've done the same thing for -good some time ago, so I don't think there are any downsides to just removing the tag.

Reopening then ...
Comment 12 Jan Schmidt 2006-03-27 14:36:29 UTC
aiui, there aren't until we go to reenable C++ based plugins at which point the tag is needed, or something. Andy understands, I believe.

In the meantime, we're probably ok to apply the patch (since there's no C++ based plugins building yet) and leave the bug open for Andy to fix.
Comment 13 Andy Wingo 2006-03-28 07:43:44 UTC
As has been made apparent, I'm quite OK with ignoring the problem :-P

Just go ahead and close it I guess.
