Ahh. So the feature is compiled in. As such digikam expects marble to
be in place. Then Patrick I would have to agree that it be included.
With all due respect; for those that would be relying on the feature
it would be sorely missed if it wasn't there. And then we would be
complaining that the feature wasn't included.
Maybe you should try to communicate with the developers and ask them
if there is any way to get digikam to compile with support built,
check if the package is installed and run even if the package is not
installed. That way the dependency can be removed. Until such time
Fedora has no real option but to include it.
My Bugzilla report was to KDE, not to Fedora
). I don't expect Fedora to
do anything about it.
