Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 167996
Install findlib META file
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:13 EST
Description of problem:
The META file for findlib is not included in the installation. Additionally it
is also outdated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Created attachment 118675 [details]
Version patch for META
Created attachment 118676 [details]
Patch for .spec file.
This patch does 2 things:
a. Fixes the version information in the META file (see the attachment before
b. Install META
I must admit, that this is the first time I heard of findlib, so I made
a little research myself. One problem is that the author of lablgtk doesn't
seem to care that much about META. However, since the patch is small I think
I will include it into the spec file directly. I had trouble to download
your patch since it was gzipped and the browser insisted in showing it
in the window :-( You don't need to zip it.
Rebuild with META
Yeah, it's a pity. The META file hardly takes work to maintain and it makes
writing build scripts a lot easier since findlib provides a uniform interface to
query package information.
I've submitted a review request (#166919) for my findlib package here some weeks
ago and still haven't got a response =/
