Description Damien Durand 2007-01-27 18:04:30 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: medit is a multiplatform GTK text editor. Started originally as a simple 
built-in editor component in GGAP, it grew up to a real text editor

Comment 1 Xavier Lamien 2007-01-27 19:01:02 UTC
In fields %install,
in your "desktop-file-install" line commande, "--delete-original" was pasted

"--vendor=Fedora" is not required anymore, juste set --vendor="".

you shoudn't past all BuildRequires on the same line.

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2007-01-27 20:59:49 UTC
* must not include /usr/share/icons/hicolor/icon-theme.cache

* missing scriptlets for gtk-update-icon-cache (hicolor icons)

* must not include /usr/share/mime/mime.cache

* contents of /usr/share/mime/ and subdirs are highly questionable
and need a very close look

Comment 4 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-02-03 20:53:27 UTC
You should probably look at these 
chitlesh(SPECS)[0]$rpmlint /home/chitlesh/rpmbuild/RPMS/i386/medit-0.8.1-2.i386.rpm
E: medit only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
E: medit standard-dir-owned-by-package /usr/share/icons
E: medit non-executable-script /usr/lib/moo/plugins/lib/ 0644
E: medit zero-length /usr/share/mime/XMLnamespaces
E: medit zero-length /usr/share/mime/aliases
E: medit zero-length /usr/lib/moo/plugins/project/mprj/
E: medit non-executable-script /usr/share/moo/language-specs/ 0644

> "--vendor=Fedora" is not required anymore, juste set --vendor="".

you should probably take note of this as well

what's the difference between mooedit and medit ???

Please do investigate as why your package includes files which
belong elsewhere or are generated at run-time:

-rw-r--r--  /usr/share/mime/XMLnamespaces
-rw-r--r--  /usr/share/mime/aliases
-rw-r--r--  /usr/share/mime/globs
-rw-r--r--  /usr/share/mime/magic
-rw-r--r--  /usr/share/mime/subclasses

Also on your system, these files do exist already.

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2007-03-19 04:44:38 UTC
When I try to install medit-0.8.1-2.i386 I get:

        file /usr/share/mime/globs from install of medit-0.8.1-2 conflicts with
file from package monodevelop-0.12-7.fc6

Comment 7 Michael Schwendt 2007-03-19 10:33:00 UTC
That is also a packaging bug in monodevelop then, as the file must
not be included.

Comment 8 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-04-26 10:06:20 UTC
Ping Damien?

Comment 9 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-06-12 09:21:16 UTC
It's nearly two months now, since my last ping.
I'll be closing this bug as WONTFIX, if I hear no news from DamienDurand till 
15 June 2007.

PS: fedora contributors who are away for a long time should fill up their 
absence in:

Comment 10 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-06-15 17:59:03 UTC
