Description Stefan Sauer (gstreamer, gtkdoc dev) 2010-04-19 15:45:04 UTC
upstream vobisidec has no pkg-config script. If that is not available we check if 
vorbis_block_init is available. This is not a good idea as it is not public API

configure:27440: No package 'vorbisidec' found
configure:27471: checking for vorbis_block_init in -lvorbisidec
configure:27496: gcc -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c -lvorbisidec   >&5
/tmp/ccAdfQWb.o: In function `main':
/home/ensonic/projects/gstreamer/gst-plugins-base/conftest.c:83: undefined reference to `vorbis_block_init'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure:27496: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:

Also the actual plugin uses that code.

This is a known issue, I'm not sure it is a blocker though, there's no regression after all. If you have a non-intrusive fix, that can be considered of course.

I don't remember what the deal with this is, it looks like an upstream bug to me - it's in the header files after all. Not sure if there is any kind of upstream though..
Comment 2 Mark Nauwelaerts 2010-04-19 16:29:27 UTC
Indeed, it looks more like upstream needs some adjusting.  After all, it works :), is in header files, and using it mirrors the public API of mainstream vorbis, so why the alternate implementation feels like going different (or staying behind maybe) ?

Also, otherwise, iirc one would only be left with some (older) vorbisfile api or so, which is not quite so nice for vorbis(i)dec purposes.

Okay, we're gettting upstream updates - I mark this as NOTGSTREAMER :)
