Description of problem:
Rawhide contains openobex-1.0.1-4.2. Latest is openobex 1.1. See http://openobex.triq.net/downloads
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
rpm -q openobex
Also, openobex-apps package is no longer needed and is out of date, as the
applications are now included into openobex itself. To build them from openobex
1.1, run ./configure --enable-apps
Er, sorry about this, but... it looks like openobex-1.2 just came out. Updating
too late for FC-5 ...
ping for fc5 post release...
I've done this independently, attaching my patch to the SPEC file
Note that the old patches for openobex-apps are not included, I don't think they
are neccessary (tehre is an extra obex_push application, but I think you can do
that with obex_test and if you want a real implementation you probably need
Created attachment 128880 [details]
patch to upgrade to 1.2, compile apps from this src rpm, and include usb support
Note that if libusb-devel is present USB support will be compiled, so it seems
to make sense to make this a build requirement
obexfs (a FUSE filesystem on top of obexftp) is even better for transferring
files to/from phones, as it would mount the phone contents as a real filesystem.
It would look as if you just plugged in a thumb drive or inserted a CD. For USB
access this could happen automatically on connection, but for Bluetooth access
some sort of helper application that intergrates with KDE/GNOME bluetooth
browsers is probably better.
Openobex 1.3 is out, so please update to that.
