comment:2 by Xi Ruoyao, 12 months ago

We need -DENABLE_DOCUMENTATION=OFF to avoid a dependency on gi-docgen (at least for now: we can add gi-docgen later if there are many packages using it).

comment:3 by Douglas R. Reno, 12 months ago

Is there anything else that we need to change regarding CMake switches? I know we were talking in IRC about some SOUP changes

comment:10 by Douglas R. Reno, 9 months ago

  • Add optional dependency on gi-docgen
  • Remove dependency on libnotify
  • Remove dependency on gtk-doc
  • Change libsoup2 dependency to libsoup3
  • Drop -DSOUP2=ON from cmake command
  • Add -DENABLE_DOCUMENTATION=OFF to cmake command
  • Change references to webkitgtk-4.0 to webkitgtk-4.1
  • Remove description for -DUSE_LIBNOTIFY=OFF and -DENABLE_GTKDOC=ON
  • Add description for -DENABLE_DOCUMENTATION=OFF
  • Patch Balsa to use webkitgtk-4.1
  • Apply a sed to Zenity to use webkitgtk-4.1

For the security advisory, I will say to add -DENABLE_DOCUMENTATION=OFF to the cmake command line and use the instructions from the stable book with that version substituted in. This is due to the soup3 version being incompatible with what shipped with BLFS 11.2.

comment:11 by Douglas R. Reno, 9 months ago

Also change the installation instructions for the prerendered documentation to match webkitgtk-4.1

comment:12 by Douglas R. Reno, 9 months ago

More documentation installation changes are required, webkitdomgtk doesn't exist anymore, so we'll change that to jsc-glib-4.1 and webkit2gtk-web-extension-4.1. The 'html' directories also no longer exist in the Documentation/ folders.
