Description Alistair Buxton 2016-09-02 08:55:11 UTC
I built gstreamer with:

--disable-check --disable-examples --disable-tests --disable-failing-tests --disable-benchmarks

and found that netclock-replay and plot-data in tests/misc were still built. There doesn't seem to be any way to disable them, which seems odd to me because everything else in tests/ can be disabled with the above flags.

Didn't feel like adding a --disable-misc option for this as well, so let's try this:

    tests: don't build misc subdir if both examples and benchmarks have been disabled
