Description Dridi Boukelmoune 2019-02-19 08:53:42 UTC
Spec URL: https://dridi.fedorapeople.org/review/config.spec SRPM URL: https://dridi.fedorapeople.org/review/config-20190120-1.fc29.src.rpm Description: This package installs an up-to-date version of config.guess and config.sub, used by the automake and libtool packages. It provides the canonical copy of those files for other packages as well. Fedora Account System Username: dridi This is a missing dependency of debhelper that I have been using locally for a month or so to build debs locally for autotools-based projects.

Scratch build for rawhide: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=32902041 I'm using it on f29.

Taking this review.
Comment 3 Neal Gompa 2019-02-19 11:53:50 UTC
Is this package actually needed? redhat-rpm-config provides our config.guess and config.sub files, you could just have it install a symlink for those files to be available in that location, if debhelper really needs it there?

(In reply to Dridi Boukelmoune from comment #0) > This is a missing dependency of debhelper that I have been using locally for > a month or so to build debs locally for autotools-based projects. we need strip-nondeterminism for debhelper and to build with debhelper now we need add  to control file , but I don't see for what we need this, some example is great appreciated . Anyway IMHO package should have the same of Debian package, i.e. autotools-dev Thanks,  override_dh_strip_nondeterminism:
Comment 5 Dridi Boukelmoune 2020-05-05 21:32:15 UTC
As suggested by Neal, one could instead make the redhat-rpm-config symlink those files where dpkg tooling is expecting them. I think it was needed by dpkg's support for autotools-based projects but I unfortunately no longer have the bandwidth to work on this.
