Ticket #508 (new defect/bug)
Use of private libraries (shapelib, mdbtools)
|Reported by:||http://adamwill.id.fedoraproject.org/||Owned by:||horwitz|
I'm (still, I know it's taking a while :>) working on packaging Navit for Fedora. Review is here:
the reviewer has pointed out that Navit uses private copies of a couple of things without looking for system-wide copies. This is against Fedora packaging guidelines. Specifically, he identifies the use of a private copy of (part of) shapelib in navit/map/shapefile and mdbtools in navit/map/poi_geodownload . I have tried patching myself to use system-wide copies of these but haven't got it to fly yet. If Navit could be improved to use system-wide copies of these components when available - like it does for all the stuff under navit/support - that would be great.
