%ldconfig_scriptlets are in the spec file as I plan to also build for EPEL 7.

Comment 2 Simone Caronni 2019-06-09 07:30:28 UTC
Just noticed that binaries with execstack forcibly disabled do not work. execstack is explicitly enabled on all architectures at configure time (see build/linux/configure):

$ rpmlint xavs*rpm
xavs2.x86_64: W: executable-stack /usr/bin/xavs2
xavs2.x86_64: W: no-documentation

How can I unblock this? It has been pending legal for 2 months.
I'm not even sure who to ping.


Comment 4 Simone Caronni 2019-09-14 07:25:13 UTC
As explained in the davs2 review (the decoder) this package is not permitted in Fedora.
