k3b dependency on transcode

Reported by: alexander@… Owned by: blfs-book@…
Priority: lowest Milestone: 6.3
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: minor Keywords:


The dependency of K3B on Transcode, as listed in the book, is confusing:

K3b Dependencies





... , Transcode-1.0.3, ...

Runtime Requirements for DVD Ripping and Encoding

... , Transcode-1.0.3, ...

So, what is Transcode-1.0.3 used for, except ripping DVDs? Is it really needed at configure time?

Transcode-1.0.3 is a run time dependency (as specified in the book) used for DVD Ripping and Encoding. For details, see the INSTALL file in the package.

It is not needed at build time and the book says that. It has said that it is runtime only since the package was first put into the book on 3/16/06.

I'm reopening this ticket, mostly because if I don't, Alex will. :-)

Anyway, there is some confusion whether Transcode is, or is not looked for at build time. I'm too lazy to look at logs right now, but I put it in there, so at one time, configure probably looked for it.

Perhaps now it is truly run-time only and it should be removed from the "optional dependencies"

Either way, the ticket shouldn't be marked as invalid, unless of course that Transcode is truly looked for at configure time. But Bruce's comments indicate that it is only run-time. Confusing to me.

Removed transcode from optional dependencies.
