major GTK-DirectFB consumers and they may be interested in this thread.]

The minimum DirectFB requirement to build gtk+ with the DirectFB

However, i noticed that some DirectFB structures and macro used in
gdk/directfb/gdktestutils-directfb.c are provided only starting from
DirectFB >= 1.2.0.
This inconsistency (toghether with other issues i am trying to address
now) prevent building gtk+ with the DirectFB backend.
How should we deal with this situation ? Shall the gtk+ code which
requires DirectFB >=1.2.0 be removed from gtk+ or shall the minimum
DirectFB requirements br rised to 1.2.0 ?
The requirement should be 1.0.0, but with checks where required to utilize
new features. I'd raise the required version to 1.2.0 not before one year
after its release :)
Ok, so i guess that for now this specific issue could be workarounded by
means of a check on DIRECTFB_MAJOR_VERSION and DIRECTFB_MINOR_VERSION in
I also guess that the minimum DirectFB requirements could be raised to
1.0.0, since DirectFB version 1.0.1-11 is in Debian unstable (d-i folks,
what's your opinion on this point ?)
BTW, any volunteers found to forward port my giant gtk+ 2.12.9 patch?
Is the patch available somewhere ? How can one get it ?
