#11936 closed patch

configure check for mono fails with mono 2.6.4

Reported by: waschk Owned by:
Milestone: Component: plugins
Version: 2.7.0 Keywords: mono


This is with pidgin 2.7.0 and mono 2.6.4 on Mandriva 2010.1:

checking for MONO... yes
checking for libmono... checking for mono_jit_init... yes
checking mono/jit/jit.h usability... no
checking mono/jit/jit.h presence... no
checking for mono/jit/jit.h... no
checking mono/metadata/object.h usability... no
checking mono/metadata/object.h presence... no
checking for mono/metadata/object.h... no

The pkgconfig file was changed in mono 2.6.4 and does not reference glib-2.0 anymore:

## Commented out because SLE hides devel files in the SLE SDK,
## which not all customers will have.
#Requires: glib-2.0 gthread-2.0

The mono plugin is also missing a glib include. Please see the attached patch for a fix.

  • Milestone set to Patches Needing Review
  • Type changed from defect to patch

I don't think the mono plugin actually works, and I don't believe it should be enabled by a distro and/or actually used.

  • Status changed from new to pending

I don't see how that second change is relevant when you only change one file and leave the rest of the *-glue.c files alone. Anyway, glib.h is included somewhere along the line by including status.h, so that change is unnecessary.

In any case, the mono plugin loader is broken and doesn't work anyway. You shouldn't be using it.
