Comment 3 Tim Niemueller 2006-07-25 08:24:40 UTC
Please try again. It's there now.

Comment 4 Hans de Goede 2006-07-26 15:00:19 UTC
Doesn't build for me as normal user, because it tries to chown installed files:
if [ ! -d /var/tmp/palantir-root/usr/share/palantir ] ; then \
           mkdir -p /var/tmp/palantir-root/usr/share/palantir ; \
           chown root /var/tmp/palantir-root/usr/share/palantir ; \
chown: changing ownership of `/var/tmp/palantir-root/usr/share/palantir':
Operation not permitted

I guess this can be circumvented for the dir case by first doing an mkdir -p.

Please post a new version with this fixed.

Comment 5 Tim Niemueller 2006-08-08 00:03:13 UTC
New package online at
(spec at original URL). All rpmlint warnings have been fixed, scripts have been
updated according to hints given (in the other review requests). The mentioned
problem has been fixed with an extended Makefile patch.

Comment 6 Hans de Goede 2006-08-11 04:52:32 UTC
O rpmlint output is:
W: palantir hardcoded-packager-tag Tim
W: palantir redundant-prefix-tag
W: palantir setup-not-quiet
W: palantir mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs
These all must be fixed
* Package and spec file named appropriately
* Packaged according to packaging guidelines
* License ok, license file included
* spec file is legible and in Am. English.
* Source matches upstream
* "Compiles" and builds on FC-5 i386
* BR: ok
* No locales
* No shared libraries
* Not relocatable
* Package owns / or requires all dirs
* No duplicate files & Permissions ok
* %clean & macro usage OK
* Contains code only
* %doc does not affect runtime, and isn't large enough to warrent a sub package
* no -devel package needed, no libs / .la files.
* no .desktop file required

MUST fix
* rpmlint output:
W: palantir hardcoded-packager-tag Tim
Remove the packager tag
W: palantir redundant-prefix-tag
Remove the prefix tag
W: palantir setup-not-quiet
Add -q to %setup
W: palantir mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs
Only uses spaces for indenting, not tabs
* Add: "%defattr(-,root,root,-)" to the subpackages
  %files .
* Source0 must be a full URL

* I assume the java client doesn't build with gcj? Have you tried?
* Why is the building of the QT client optional and not done by default, since
  it is in a subpackage the user can always choose to not install it so I would 
  prefer to always build it and atleast build it by default.

ping again? If I still get no response within one week I'm closing this as a
dead review.
