Description Rahul Sundaram 2009-05-04 11:42:40 UTC
Spec URL:


Gnome Format is a GNOME tool to easily format (erase and initialize) external 
memory media like USB sticks or SD/MMC flash cards for your PC. 


Note: I was not able to use the find_lang macros since the %files section failed with a error. I am not very familiar with waf either. Any assistance is welcome.

Comment 1 Felix Kaechele 2009-05-05 09:18:16 UTC
You probably forgot "-f %{name}.lang" after the %files macro.

Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2009-05-05 18:31:25 UTC
Adding it was what gave me an error.

Comment 3 Felix Kaechele 2009-05-06 10:01:30 UTC
Weird. Seems to work for me:

Comment 4 Felix Kaechele 2009-05-13 08:24:48 UTC
Have you tried my build with the added %find_lang section? Does it work for you?
I though you could include it before I'll start the review.

Comment 5 Rahul Sundaram 2009-05-13 13:10:39 UTC
I haven't checked yet. Unfortunately upstream declare this project as dead in favour of Red Hat's work on DeviceKit and related programs. I still intend to atleast build this for Fedora 10 but it is not a high priority at the moment. I will take a look asap.

Comment 6 Rahul Sundaram 2009-06-22 05:16:01 UTC
Upstream declared this software dead soon after I submitted the review and I don't see much of a point in going through the review process now just for a single release. I am closing this one.
