#46240 closed enhancement (fixed)

kde4 1.1 PortGroup file adaptation to qt4-mac +concurrent

Reported by: RJVB (René Bertin) Owned by: mkae (Marko Käning)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: haspatch Cc: NicosPavlov, mkae (Marko Käning)
Port: kde4


The kde4 1.1 PortGroup file contains hardcoded declarations for the QCA2 include and library directories. Those are inappropriate for qt4-mac +concurrent, and in my testing they are also not required.

Sure that committing this won't break anything?

For me it's unclear how to test this without rebuilding whole kdelibs4 and perhaps port:konversation...

This change won't require anything to be rebuilt. It removes instructions where to find QCA during a build. When I tried with the standard (traditional, exclusive) port:qt4-mac active those instructions were redundant (= not required), so removing them didn't break anything. For me.

Testing is simple enough: port -v configure foo where foo is any KDE4 port that depends on port:qca (or possibly port:qca-ossl). If that doesn't raise errors or warnings about something qca-related not being found you have your proof. You can also double-check in the generated CMakeCache.txt file if the qca stuff is found in the correct locations.

The reason that I like to have this committed is that PortGroup definitions outside the default repository apparently apply only to the ports in the same repository. Or maybe the rule is that a PortGroup definition in a port repository overrides PortGroup definitions from outside that repository.

Since I wasn't sure what you really meant in your last paragraph (w.r.t. default and same), I removed these two lines in my base installation, as well as in the checked out port group definition in the corresponding dports directory and ended up with this:

-- The following external packages were located on your system.
-- This installation will have the extra features provided by these packages.
   * QCA - Qt Cryptographic Architecture

-- Congratulations! All external packages have been found.

meaning that a removal of these two options is possible. :-)

BTW, your patch wasn't applicable as is, since the portgroup had changed in the meantime.
