Description Robert Scheck 2003-12-24 07:20:50 EST
Description of problem:
I found the following in the spec file of up2date:

--- snipp ---
# do a better fix later
%define pythonver python2.3
--- snapp ---

May you change that to:

--- snipp ---
# get the python version for building
%define pythonver %(pythonver="python`rpm -q --queryformat='%{VERSION}' python 2>/dev/null | cut -b1-3`"; echo "$pythonver")
--- snapp ---

Maybe it's not perfect, but looks better and is more flexible than the old solution.

Thanks for including my idea to the up2date spec file, but now there
is a better solution than mine in the spec file:

%define pythonver python%(%{__python} -c "import sys; print sys.version[:3]")

This one works fine, so I think, you can remove the 2 old one... :)
