Description Walter Hurry 2013-04-08 21:10:00 UTC
multimedia/mplayer needs libXss.so.1 at runtime, so it should have a dependency on x11/libXScrnSaver, but it does not.

x11/libXScrnSaver should be added as a dependency.


Add x11/libXScrnSaver as a dependency of multimedia/mplayer
How-To-Repeat: Remove x11/libXScrnSaver. mplayer now errors out with "shared library not found"

I am not near my dev/test system right now, but attached patch should
do it. Can you verify?

Comment 4 Walter Hurry 2013-04-10 15:58:26 UTC
Works for me:

$ grep USE_XORG= /usr/ports/multimedia/mplayer/Makefile
USE_XORG=	x11 xscrnsaver
$ sudo pkg delete -y libXScrnSaver
The following packages will be deinstalled:


The deinstallation will free 34 kB
Deleting libXScrnSaver-1.2.1...
libXScrnSaver-1.2.1 is required by: mplayer-1.1.r20130308

Comment 5 Pawel Pekala freebsd_committer 2013-05-02 14:05:01 UTC
This patch will not work for X11=3Doff, binary will still link to
libXScrnSaver. Configure script have switch to control this:
 --(enable|disable)-xss which defaults to autodetection.

pozdrawiam / with regards
