Description Ville Skyttä 2003-08-12 21:42:53 UTC
I will submit a proposed patch to the gkrellm specfile.  More details in the
included %changelog.  The compatibility part is for smoothly upgrading from
external 3rd party repository packages such as freshrpms.net and www.fedora.us.

Suggested specfile patch

Note: this patch is in UTF-8.  More information available on request, but the
changes should be self-explanatory.

Note #2:  /usr/bin/gkrellmd should be changed to /usr/sbin/gkrellmd in
gkrellmd.init after applying this patch.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2003-09-12 20:38:20 UTC
GKrellM 2.1.19 is out.  The attached patch still works just by doing a simple
s/2.1.15/2.1.19/.  Please consider applying/updating this.

Update to 2.1.20, bring up to date against current rawhide

I see gkrellm has been updated to 2.1.19, but this issue has been ignored so
Attached is the same patch updated to apply cleanly against 2.1.19-1 in

Would it be possible to get some feedback/comments on this?  TIA.

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2003-10-08 20:57:41 UTC
Note #2 from comment 1 still applies with the updated patch wrt the gkrellmd

Comment 5 Karsten Hopp 2003-10-09 11:27:11 UTC
Most of your suggestions are now in gkrellm-2.1.20-2.  
The -devel subpackage has to wait for the next release as we are currently in string freeze 
(because of the translations) and can't add new strings such as the package description. 

Comment 6 Ville Skyttä 2003-10-09 17:36:13 UTC

About the -devel package; would it be possible to add a "Provides:
gkrellm-devel" in the main package in the meantime?  That would make this
package compatible with a lot of plugin packages out there which have
"BuildRequires: gkrellm-devel"?

Comment 7 Karsten Hopp 2003-10-09 18:50:38 UTC
sure, no problem. Done in -3 

Comment 8 Ville Skyttä 2003-10-09 19:43:10 UTC
Wonderful, thanks a bunch!
