Description Matthew Miller 2004-05-26 15:24:08 EDT
The 3.0-1.1 joe package in rawhide sets sysconfdir to /etc/joe, which
is redundant and causes config files to end up in /etc/joe/joe.
Suggested fix -- change:

 ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc/joe


 %configure --disable-dependency-tracking

(the --disable-dependency-tracking theoretically resulting in a
slightly faster build time).
Comment 1 Lon Hohberger 2004-05-27 09:22:28 EDT
There's a fix for this waiting to be pushed to rawhide.
Comment 2 Lon Hohberger 2004-05-27 13:03:09 EDT
joe-3.0-2.3 will be in rawhide soon which has this fixed (3.0-2.1 must
have dissappeared)
