Description Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2010-10-24 11:03:43 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #632988 +++

gst-discoverer should be a versionized tool, like gst-inspect-0.10/gst-launch-0.10/etc, and have a wrapper script called gst-discoverer. Otherwise parallel installation of gstreamer 0.10 and 0.11/0.12 isn't possible
Comment 1 Tim-Philipp Müller 2010-10-24 13:22:22 UTC
I think we should just dispense with the wrapper crap and only have gst-discoverer-0.10 (same for core, but we can't really change it there now).

tools: Rename gst-discoverer to gst-discoverer-0.10

I don't think we need to / should apply the -0.10 suffix to the source file. You probably only need that because the .c file is in EXTRA_DIST and not in xyz_SOURCES where it belongs (IMHO).

    tools: rename gst-discoverer binary to gst-discoverer-0.10
    We're not providing a wrapper like we do for the tools in core,
    since wrappers are confusing (e.g. for debugging purposes),
    mostly pointless (since the API is likely to change between
    major versions), and cause packaging issues when packages for
    two different major versions are to be installed in parallel.
