py27-pyqt4-4.12.1_0+phonon: fatal error: 'abstractaudiooutput.h' file not found

Reported by: mcmara (Jack McMara) Owned by: michaelld (Michael Dickens)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: sierra Cc: tehcog (tehcog)
Port: py-pyqt4


I'm unable to add the +phonon variant to py27-pyqt4.
My system is up-to-date as of today:

$ clang -v
Apple LLVM version 9.0.0 (clang-900.0.38)
Target: x86_64-apple-darwin16.7.0
Thread model: posix
InstalledDir: /Applications/

The error is:

do you have the file?

$ locate abstractaudiooutput

comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by mcmara (Jack McMara)

yes, the phonon port was successfully installed:

$ find /opt/local/ -name abstractaudiooutput*
[... cut ...]

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by kencu (Ken)

Yep, I get the same error. The file is trying to include

#include <abstractaudiooutput.h>

but as per your and my systems, it should be trying to include

#include <phonon/abstractaudiooutput.h>

Probably the easiest thing to do is add the ${prefix}/include/phonon directory to the system search path with something like

configure.cppflags-append -I ${prefix}/include/phonon

Same here. As a test, I just did edit the file:


and added


to CPPFLAGS and CXXFLAGS and that worked (the build was successful).

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by kencu (Ken)

We shouldn't have to force it like that. It looks like the phonon.pc flags might be wrong

$ cat /opt/local/lib/pkgconfig/phonon.pc

Name: Phonon
Description: Phonon library needed to build applications
Version: 4.9.1
Requires: QtCore QtGui QtDBus
Libs: -L${libdir} -lphonon
Cflags: -I${includedir}

at least, they don't show the include dir as


if that is what they are supposed to be doing.

instead, I see this:


This logic is in the script around line 516, and it looks like it is not doing the right thing for us at present.
