Comment 1 Braden McDaniel 2007-03-25 19:18:51 UTC
Okay; I didn't even know about %dir. I was under the impression that rpm would
clean up a directory automatically once it didn't have any more files in it.

Additionally, I suppose the gl-devel subpackage needs

%dir %{_includedir}/%{name}/openvrml/gl

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2007-03-25 20:26:50 UTC
RPM does that only if the directory is included in a package.

Query your package in verbose list-mode to display all the files
that are included. For example: rpm -qplv somepackage.i386.rpm
Watch out for the lines in the list that start with 'd'. Just like
with "ls", those are the directories. Every directory that belongs
to your package's files should be included (under consideration of
sub-package dependencies).

No. The package includes


already, which means to include the directory "gl" and the entire tree
below it.


There are alternative ways on how to include directories.

Method one:


This includes the specified directory "foo" and everything in it
recursively, provided that "foo" is a directory. /usr and /usr/lib,
however, don't belong into the package. The '/' at the end is a
convenient way to make it clear that "foo/" is supposed to be a
directory and not a single file.

Method two:

  %dir /usr/lib/foo

This includes the same files than method one, except it is more explicit.
If "foo" contains sub-directories, these are included recursively due
to the wildcard '*' and just as with method one.
