#50067 Please use pkg-config to detect icu
Closed: wontfix 3 years ago by firstyear. Opened 3 years ago by hmc.

Issue Description

icu-config has been deprecated by its upstream developers for some years now. In icu 63.1, icu-config is optional to install, but installed by default. In the next version, icu-config will no longer be installed by default.

The developers recommend downstream packages use pkg-config to detect the icu libraries.

Package Version and Platform

Debian Linux, package version

Steps to reproduce

  1. Rename icu-config to icu-config2 temporarily.
  2. Attempt to build 389-ds-base.

Actual results

389-ds-base fails to build from source.

Expected results

If using pkg-config to detect icu-i18n, binaries should be built.

Thanks for updating the status of this ticket, @firstyear.

I haven’t forgotten about converting the other pkg-config calls to PKG_CHECK_MODULES. I’ve been on holidays for a few weeks, but will get onto this when I return next week.

@hmc Should we open a new ticket for the remaining pkg-config check changes? Or did you want to do it as part of this?

@firstyear I'll open a new PR for the remaining patchset.

389-ds-base is moving from Pagure to Github. This means that new issues and pull requests
