Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-02-17 17:03:43 UTC
Description of problem:
vorbis-tools in Rawhide is not compiled against libFLAC; the resulting ogg123
cannot play back FLAC files. According to rpm --changelog it's intentionally
linked against libogg instead, but it does not seem to do the trick (ldd-ing
libogg shows that it does not link to libFLAC)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ogg123 somefile.flac
Actual results:
Audio Device:   Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) output

Error opening somefile.flac using the oggvorbis module.  The file may be corrupted.

Expected results:
File should play normally

Additional info:
The file played has been verified using flac -t

Karsten, why the change?

* Wed Feb 14 2007 Karsten Hopp <> 1.1.1-5
- rebuild with, link with libogg instead of libOggFLAC

Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2007-02-19 15:18:32 UTC
hmm, this shouldn't have dropped FLAC support, sorry about that.
What I was trying to solve was that vorbis-tools required
which we don't have anymore with flac-1.1.4

What I did was that I've added a buildrequirement on libogg-devel which was 
not necessary as the requirement on libvorbis-devel already pulls in libogg-devel.

So the actual problem is that the current vorbis-tools doesn't link with
libflac, but that's unrelated to my 'fix'

Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2007-02-21 14:48:02 UTC
The current vorbis-tools upstream tarball doesn't have any FLAC 1.1.3 or 1.1.4
support. Hopefully, Conrad Parker should do a release soon.

Comment 4 Jonathan Corbet 2007-03-01 00:13:23 UTC
FWIW, I've noticed this too.  FLAC support used to work, but no longer, and I
miss it.  Looking forward to that release.

Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2007-04-12 13:57:01 UTC
Fixed in rawhide with 1.1.1.svn20070412-1.fc7

$ rpm -qp --requires vorbis-tools-1.1.1.svn20070412-1.fc7.x86_64.rpm | grep -i flac
