Description Robert Scheck 2008-06-22 16:04:39 UTC
Description of problem:
/usr/lib/pkgconfig/devmapper.pc contains:

  Version: "1.02.26 (2008-06-06)"

which is a very strange format. Can we please change this to

  Version: 1.02.26

for future packages, please? Thank you. AFAIK the device-mapper is the only
package in the whole Fedora which does such things. Please correct, thanks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, see above.

Actual results:
Strange version format in /usr/lib/pkgconfig/devmapper.pc

Expected results:
Version: 1.02.26 in /usr/lib/pkgconfig/devmapper.pc without any quotation marks

Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2008-06-22 16:29:53 UTC
Best fix would be upstream. Downstream suggestion would be:

  sed -e 's/Version: .*/Version: %{device_mapper_version}/' \
    -i $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_libdir}/pkgconfig/libdevmapper.pc

after installation somewhere in %install.

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2008-06-22 16:31:17 UTC
Ehm...devmapper, not libdevmapper of course, so:

  sed -e 's/Version: .*/Version: %{device_mapper_version}/' \
    -i $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_libdir}/pkgconfig/devmapper.pc

Comment 5 Alasdair Kergon 2008-11-01 20:16:17 UTC
Only an upstream patch will be considered of course, not a spec file workaround.

Added DM_LIB_PATCHLEVEL.  Will hit rawhide in f11 rebase.
