Bug Description

Tickr doesn't build on Oneiric and Precise. This relates to new linker flag "--as-needed" enabled by default in those series. A workaround is just adding "-Wl,--no-as-needed" to LDFLAGS in Makefile.am. After applying the patch, autoconf and automake, it just build fine.

This appears to be fixed in Debian and we should be importing the package automatically in about 6 days, once it gets promoted to Debian testing -- I'll mark this Fix Committed for now; to note the FTBFS bug was looked at.

This bug was fixed in the package tickr - 0.5.4-1

tickr (0.5.4-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Fix sort_url_list(EMPTY_LIST) falsly returning one element list
    (in news_list.c.) Now, program doesn't hang anymore if lauched with
    no feed URLs selected.

  * Add in news_main.c: shift2left_callback():
    env->suspend_rq = TRUE / (cairo drawing code) / env->suspend_rq = FALSE

  * Tickr fails to build with ld --as-needed (recently-set-as-default
    linker flag) because libraries must be placed after objects needing
    theirs symbols.
    To fix that, we use autoconf macro PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GTK2, gtk+-2.0, ,)
    and PKG_CHECK_MODULES(XML2, libxml-2.0, ,) in configure.ac, and we
    may so remove `pkg-config --libs GTK+-2.0' and `xml-config --libs' from
    (Closes: #647311 LP: #879880)
