Description Karel Volný 2009-08-25 10:45:01 UTC
Spec URL: http://kvolny.fedorapeople.org/libbs2b.spec
SRPM URL: http://kvolny.fedorapeople.org/libbs2b-3.1.0-1.fc11.src.rpm

The Bauer stereophonic-to-binaural DSP (bs2b) library and plugins is designed
to improve headphone listening of stereo audio records. Recommended for
headphone prolonged listening to disable superstereo fatigue without essential

The package builds in Koji: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1631840

rpmlint complains on the -devel subpackage:

[makerpm@dhcp-lab-151 x86_64]$ rpmlint -v -i libbs2b-*
libbs2b-debuginfo.x86_64: I: checking
libbs2b-devel.x86_64: I: checking
libbs2b-devel.x86_64: W: no-documentation
The package contains no documentation (README, doc, etc). You have to include
documentation files.

libbs2b.x86_64: I: checking
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 1 warnings.

... but there is no -devel specific documentation, I have nothing to include.

This library is needed for the bs2b plugin for qmmp-0.3.0 (new in this version). Other players, like Audacios and XMMS, and anything able to handle VST plugins can also benefit from this.

Comment 1 Martin Gieseking 2009-08-28 18:01:26 UTC
Hello Karel,

here is the review of your package. It is pretty clean. Just the BuildRequires(pre/post) should be removed (see below).

rpmlint /var/lib/mock/fedora-11-i386/result/*.rpm
libbs2b-devel.i586: W: no-documentation
4 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 1 warnings.

The warning is expected and can safely be ignored.
