Description Matěj Cepl 2006-10-11 10:57:45 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: Folding@home Applet is an applet for the KDE panel. It provides a convenient and unobtrusive way to monitor, visualise, and control the Folding@home client software.

This is my first attempt to create an official package for Fedora (or any other RPM-based distribution for that matter) and I am seeking a sponsor.

Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2006-10-11 12:02:40 UTC
SRPM URL is now

Comment 2 Petr Rockai 2006-10-11 15:47:37 UTC
The new srpm looks good to me, only few little issues:
     75 %{_datadir}/apps/kfolding/pics/
is redundant and
     84 * Wed Oct 11 2006 Matej Cepl <> - 1.0.0-rc2
has wrong version number (should be version-release, that is 1.0.0-0.rc2).

rpmlint says
E: kfolding 
file-in-usr-marked-as-conffile /usr/share/apps/kfolding/default.cfg
W: kfolding 
symlink-should-be-relative /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kfolding/common /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/common

The default.cfg file probably shouldn't be marked conffile, the program, if i 
understand correctly, should create ~/.kde/share/apps/kfolding/default.cfg for 
user to modify, the file in /usr is just a set of system-wide defaults.

The symlink should be relativized to ../common.

I have tried to not miss anything this time, hope it's really all :).

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2006-10-12 12:24:41 UTC
I am not able to fix this:

[matej@localhost redhat]$ rpmlint -i RPMS/i386/kfolding-1.0.0-1.rc2.i386.rpm
W: kfolding 
dangling-relative-symlink /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/kfolding/common ../common
The relative symbolic link points nowhere.

Otherwise above mentioned problems are fixed, and the new URL for SRPM is

What should I do now?

Comment 4 Petr Rockai 2006-10-12 14:00:35 UTC
The symlink is OK, the target is present in a package that is Required. Looks
good now, i let tmraz take over here.

Comment 5 Tomas Mraz 2006-10-12 15:02:47 UTC
%find_lang %{name} is present however the lang file is not included in the filelist.

Comment 6 Matěj Cepl 2006-10-13 11:38:50 UTC
Hopefully, finally cleaned up. URLs are the same.

Comment 7 Matěj Cepl 2006-10-20 09:14:30 UTC
I had to switch to Gnome for my work, so I won't package any KDE-related
packages anymore.
