Description Lucian Langa 2008-07-12 16:11:29 UTC
Spec URL:
Description: This package contains the driver and the diagnostic utility for
userspace SoundModem. It allows you to use soundcards supported
by OSS/Free as Amateur Packet Radio modems.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2008-07-17 14:51:33 UTC
Our drivers aren't OSS/Free (they're alsa), so that description could probably
use some rewording. Maybe just 's|supported by OSS/Free||'

Comment 2 Lucian Langa 2008-07-17 15:08:01 UTC
I've updated the description and bumped version

new files:

Comment 3 Jason Tibbitts 2008-11-20 17:57:36 UTC
This failed to build for me on x86_64 with current rawhide:

+ ./configure --build=x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu --host=x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu --target=x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu --program-prefix= --prefix=/usr --exec-prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share --includedir=/usr/include --libdir=/usr/lib64 --libexecdir=/usr/libexec --localstatedir=/var --sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info
checking build system type...
Invalid configuration `x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu': machine `x86_64-unknown' not recognized
configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu failed

I do not know what that means.  Maybe the configure script was simply generated by a really old autotools version?

I've used autotools to update.

Comment 5 Jason Tibbitts 2008-12-03 01:53:45 UTC
Builds fine and rpmlint is silent.

The documentation files are duplicated between the main and -devel package.

Unfortunately, modem.h and simd.h are far too generic to place in /usr/include.

* source files match upstream.  sha256sum:
* package meets naming and versioning guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* summary is OK.
* description is OK.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is OK.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.
* license text included in package.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* compiler flags are appropriate.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (rawhide, x86_64).
* package installs properly.
* debuginfo package looks complete.
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   soundmodem = 0.10-3.fc11
   soundmodem(x86-64) = 0.10-3.fc11

   soundmodem-devel = 0.10-3.fc11
   soundmodem-devel(x86-64) = 0.10-3.fc11
   soundmodem = 0.10-3.fc11

* no shared libraries are added to the regular linker search paths.
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
X generically named files
* scriptlets present OK (service management).
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -doc subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.
* headers are in the -devel package.
* no pkgconfig files.
* no static libraries.
* no libtool .la files.

Updated, there's no doc files for devel package.

> Unfortunately, modem.h and simd.h are far too generic to place in /usr/include.
Moved'em to /usr/include/soundmodem.

remove spurious printf's

I've removed two spurious printfs that were resulting in the syslog buffers getting filled up when soundmodem runs as daemon.  I've been running soundmodem in two production aprsdigi's for several years with this patch.  Without it, soundmodem would randomly exit.

SPEC to apply spurious printf patch

This is the SPEC to apply the spurious printf's patch.

applies soundmodem-spurious-printf.patch

Sorry, I patched against what is in the fedora SRPM.  Here's the update against the 10.4 spec.

Comment 10 Jason Tibbitts 2008-12-06 17:48:49 UTC
The issues I had with this review have been fixed.  It would be nice to address
the above mentioned code quality issue, which I have no way to test, but I'm
going to leave that up to Lucian.  Alan, if your issue is not addressed when
this package is imported, please consider filing a bug against it. 
Unfortunately you can't do that now because the review isn't finished and so
the bugzilla component doesn't exist yet.  It should be available soon after
the CVS request has been processed.

Anyway, I'm going to approve this and leave it to Lucian to decide what to do
with the above patch.


Comment 11 Lucian Langa 2008-12-06 21:20:46 UTC
Thank you, Jason.
Alan, thank you for the patch, I'm going to handle this after I check this in.
