Description grtodd 1999-12-15 08:03:55 UTC
Various ispell-LANGUAGE-3.1.20-22 packages broken and will not build with
supplied src.rpm package.  The required

To see a list of all the improperly built packages simply mount the CD on
/mnt/cdrom and do:

for i in `/bin/ls /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS/ispell-[a-z]*`; do rpm -Vp $i
;done

Or after rebuilding the src.rpms:

for i in `/bin/ls /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/ispell-[a-z]*`; do rpm -Vp $i
;done

The spec file and build/Makefile system are preventing non-english
(american and british) .hash and .aff files from being built. However all
the non-Englis dictionaries are included in the source.

Please fix.

See also bug #4960 - perhaps other hash files (eg. the medical terms?) aren't
being built.

Comment 2 grtodd 1999-12-16 02:33:59 UTC
Looked at this again quickly - running the build in the source tree and adding
{languages} to LANGUAGE in local.h seems to work (all the *.aff and *.hash files
get built and installed), but building using the ispell.spec breaks something.
Perhaps %_install_langs or LINGUAS or LANG can fix this?

The build process aside the main issue is that all the current distributed
non-english ispell packages are non-functional (those on my CD and at mirror
sites that I checked).

BTW just for clarity, the rpm -Vp commands show the missing files if you run
them against the package files *after* you have them installed. When this is
done they will list the missing files.
