netGo is a distribution-independent networking tool (written in Qt) for
changing network settings quickly and easily. It is intended for laptop
owners, who often need to change network settings when relocating.
It allows you to create profiles that contain the network settings such as the
IP, netmask, gateway, name servers and wireless options. After creating a
profile it can be executed with a single click.
Comment 1 Christian Iseli 2005-09-16 12:39:41 EDT
I started to review netgo, and I think there is a problem... but I'm not too
sure how to handle this.

The upstream netgo package puts its real binary as /usr/share/netgo/netgo-bin and
puts a wrapper in /usr/bin to gain root access.

The proposed package uses consolehelper to replace the wrapper.

However, the real bin is still in /usr/share, which leads to rpmlint
E: netgo arch-dependent-file-in-usr-share /usr/share/netgo/netgo-bin
W: netgo no-dependency-on usermode-consoleonly

I think the real bin should be named: /usr/sbin/netgo

But I'm not too familiar with consolehelper...

Please propose a fix, and I'll complete the review.

Fixed in -2 (you're right, it should be in %{_sbindir}):

- BuildRequires ok
- no locale to worry about
- no shared libs to worry about

Patch below.

Minor nit:
I'd add the README file to %doc...
