#11196 closed defect (fixed)

libsoup-2.64.0 assumes kerberos is present.

Reported by: ken@… Owned by: Douglas R. Reno
Priority: normal Milestone: 8.4
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


Trying to build it without kerberos (which is apparently needed for the testsuite) fails with: ERROR:  Assert failed: GSSAPI support requested, but krb5-config not found. Please specify its path with -Dkrb5-config=PATH

This is because meson_options.txt starts with:

  type : 'boolean',
  value : true,
  description : 'Build with GSSAPI support'

I suggest that we add


with a command explanation of

This package defaults to building with GSSAPI support, which requires kerberos (as does the testsuite). Remove this option if kerberos is present.

Ken, I'll have this put in with libsoup-2.64.1

This is what's hard about the autotools->meson transition - accounting for dependencies.

Thanks again for this Ken, it'll be in at my next commit (which contains the libsoup update).
