Description Patrice Dumas 2006-03-13 10:14:07 UTC
SRPM Name or Url: 

This is a C++ library for accessing Microsoft(tm) help
files (usually with extension chm).

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2006-03-13 20:30:25 UTC
2 initial comments:
1.  put %doc html/ in the -devel pkg
2.  omit static lib

Comment 2 Patrice Dumas 2006-03-13 22:52:07 UTC
Fixed here:


I personally think that there are valid uses of an app linked statically with
chmlib/chmlibxx (for portability), however as there are no static libs with
chmlib, it doesn't make sense to have some with libchmxx.

Comment 3 John Mahowald 2006-04-18 04:26:47 UTC
- rpmlint checks return:
W: libchmxx-debuginfo objdump-failed
E: libchmxx-devel only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
symlink, can ignore

You need a %defattr on %files devel

- package meets naming guidelines
- package meets packaging guidelines
- license ([L]GPL) OK, text in %doc, matches source
- spec file legible, in am. english
- source matches upstream
- package compiles on devel (x86_64)
- no missing BR
- no unnecessary BR
- no locales
- not relocatable
- owns all directories that it creates
- no duplicate files
- %clean ok
- macro use consistent
- code, not content
- no need for -docs
- nothing in %doc affects runtime
- no need for .desktop file

- devel package ok
- no .la files
- post/postun ldconfig ok
- devel requires base package n-v-r

Looking good otherwise.

Comment 4 Patrice Dumas 2006-04-18 21:51:36 UTC
Fixed here (too lazy to bump release)


Comment 5 John Mahowald 2006-04-23 18:51:38 UTC
Fixed version builds fine.

APPROVED as per comment 3

Comment 6 Patrice Dumas 2006-04-24 00:08:11 UTC
