This package provides a Phonon backend which utilizes the GStreamer media framework. Its library is used by both KDE4 and KF5, but they must be linked to Qt-4.8.7 and Qt-5.5.1 respectively. The two versions do not conflict with each other.
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.9 platform.

For both build variants, fix the package to work with the latest gstreamer:

Install the qt4 based version of Phonon-backend-gstreamer by running the following commands:

Install the qt5 based version of Phonon-backend-gstreamer by running the following commands:
source /usr/bin/setqt5 && mkdir build && cd build && cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr \ -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib \ -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release \ -DPHONON_BUILD_PHONON4QT5=ON \ -D__KDE_HAVE_GCC_VISIBILITY=NO \ -Wno-dev .. && make

-DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release: This switch
is used to apply higher level of compiler optimizations.
-DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib: This switch
is used to get libraries to install to /usr/lib instead of
/usr/lib64 on a 64 bit system.
switch is used to ensure that Qt5 version of the backend is built
even if Qt4 is present.
switch is used to disable a check that would cause cmake to fail
when using Qt-5.4.2 or later.
