Description Didier 2005-05-31 05:23:21 EDT
A patch is needed to compile synaptic 0.56.1 on FC4t3.

Also included are some patches to the .desktop (which probably needs some more
massaging, as I patched against the stock synaptic.desktop).

The combined patches allowed me to install and use synaptic-0.56.1 on a FC4t3

Comment 4 Panu Matilainen 2005-06-29 07:02:12 EDT
Sorry for the slow response - 0.57 has been released in the meantime.

Updated package here:

Ville, could you update the package in CVS? Hmm, I think this should have
%{?dist} in release as well since I guess it should be released for all current
distros. Oh and Ville, let me know if you prefer the update in patches instead
of whole src.rpm's.
Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2005-06-29 08:53:19 EDT
Patches vs srpms: doesn't matter much.  If it's a simple specfile patch, maybe   
then as patch.  But other stuff:   
Why are there two almost equivalent desktop files in the first place?  
And why does the GNOME version execute hardcoded /usr/sbin/synaptic, shouldn't  
it be just (pathless) "synaptic"?  I gather /usr/sbin/synaptic won't work for  
non-root anyway.  
The KDE-only desktop entry could use the same added Categories as the GNOME  
I added %{?dist}, and took the liberty of configuring with  
--disable-dependency-tracking; that may speed up the build and results in a  
bit less messy build output.  
To confirm, you'd like to push this update for all FC-3, FC-4 and devel? 
Not committed yet, awaiting comments...  
Comment 6 Panu Matilainen 2005-07-08 06:18:22 EDT
Doh, 'twas a bit of a hasty update. Didn't realize the kde-desktop file got 
installed at all and of course the /usr/sbin path is incorrect, should 
be /usr/bin/synaptic to force it through consolehelper (otherwise if user 
has /usr/sbin in path early it'll fail to function at all). 

I'm not at a linux box now (haven't been for a week) so can't fix now, I should 
be back on my own systems next week, will update to 0.57.2 and fix these issues 

And yes, I intend it for all fc3, fc4 and devel.
Comment 7 Panu Matilainen 2005-07-12 15:46:51 EDT
Ok, here's the new version fixing the desktop stuff and also #163036
Comment 8 Ville Skyttä 2005-07-14 02:29:44 EDT
Ok, committed to CVS with a couple of self-explanatory micro tweaks.  Will tag 
and ask for a build when the build system is operational again. 
While checking this out, I noticed something you might want to take a look in 
the future:  The dirs /usr/share/gnome, /usr/share/gnome/help, 
and /usr/share/omf are unowned.  But Synaptic isn't the only "criminal" wrt. 
these, for example /usr/share/omf should probably be owned by scrollkeeper.  
Dunno about the gnome and gnome/help dirs. 
Comment 9 Ville Skyttä 2005-07-31 06:54:39 EDT
0.57.2-1 is in the repo for FC3+
