Comment 1 John Mahowald 2007-02-16 23:29:16 UTC
Needs fixing:
- BuildRoot needs to be changed

+ License OK
+ follows naming guidelines
+ *.la cleaned
+ %clean section
+ devel package

rpmlint on x86_64:
rpmlint on file-4.19-2.fc7.src.rpm
W: file summary-ended-with-dot A utility for determining file types.
E: file tag-not-utf8 %changelog
W: file invalid-license distributable
E: file non-utf8-spec-file file.spec
W: file macro-in-%changelog _includedir
W: file macro-in-%changelog _datadir
W: file mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 42, tab: line 10)
rpmlint on file-4.19-2.fc7.x86_64.rpm
W: file summary-ended-with-dot A utility for determining file types.
E: file tag-not-utf8 %changelog
W: file invalid-license distributable
E: file binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath /usr/bin/file ['/usr/lib64']
rpmlint on file-debuginfo-4.19-2.fc7.x86_64.rpm
E: file-debuginfo tag-not-utf8 %changelog
W: file-debuginfo invalid-license distributable
rpmlint on file-devel-4.19-2.fc7.x86_64.rpm
E: file-devel tag-not-utf8 %changelog
W: file-devel invalid-license distributable
W: file-devel no-documentation
rpmlint on file-libs-4.19-2.fc7.x86_64.rpm
E: file-libs tag-not-utf8 %changelog
W: file-libs invalid-license distributable
E: file-libs library-without-ldconfig-postin /usr/lib64/
E: file-libs library-without-ldconfig-postun /usr/lib64/

without-ldconfig seems bogus, it is in the spec.

Optional cleanup:
+ Change license to Distributable to shut rpmlint up
+ Change spec encoding to ASCII/UTF8

Comment 2 Martin Bacovsky 2007-02-19 15:20:51 UTC
BuildRoot fixed, spec is UTF8 now, lincence fixed too. ldconfig was in main
package, not in file-libs - fixed. Rpmlint now produces clean output on all
built rpms.

I hope file is ok now. Thanks for help.

Version: file-4.19-3.fc7
was commited to cvs.

Comment 3 John Mahowald 2007-02-19 17:01:07 UTC
Better. But rpmlint sees an rpath:

rpmlint of file-4.19-3.fc7.x86_64.rpm:E: file binary-or-shlib-defines-rpath /us
r/bin/file ['/usr/lib64']

As per  file seems to use a
generated libtool script setting rpath, and the linker is smarter than that.

Comment 4 Martin Bacovsky 2007-02-20 14:20:21 UTC
That should be fixed now. Current version is file-4.19-4.fc7.

Comment 5 John Mahowald 2007-02-21 06:48:34 UTC
Looking good.

+ devel and libSubpackages
+ macro usage throughout 
+ ldconfig
everything from comment 1
