Description Rex Dieter 2006-03-23 13:07:52 EST
A small thing:

The included openobex-1.1-inc.patch, IMO, is not necessary as well as the bit in
sed -i -e 's#includedir=@includedir@#includedir=@includedir@/openobex#g'

Apps using/requiring openobex-devel should
#include <openobex/obex.h>
#include <obex.h>
(Else, again IMO, *they* are broken and should be patched... not here in openobex).
Comment 1 David Fraser 2006-05-11 07:59:58 EDT
This could be dealt with in combination with Bug 180935 which would use the same
source rpm for openobex and openobex-apps
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2006-06-20 16:10:38 EDT
Bumping severity because the longer this remains the way it currently is, the
more time packagers of dependent apps will spend time working around it.
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2006-06-21 04:39:00 EDT
openobex-1.1-inc.patch is necessary, that the include files are installed in
/usr/include/openobex and not in /usr/include directly. I can remove
# sed -i -e 's#includedir=@includedir@#includedir=@includedir@/openobex#g'
BUT, the original openobex packages seems to install the include headers in 
/usr/include without openobex-1.1-inc.patch.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2006-06-21 07:22:05 EDT
According to the openobex apidocs:
apps using the openobex library are supposed to
#include <openobex/obex.h>
#include <obex.h>

Hence, my argument for the bogosity of needing -I/usr/include/openobex
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2006-06-21 07:39:24 EDT
Well, then they have to change their Makefile.am, because the way it is now, the
include files are installed in the wrong place.
I will remove the sed line, which corrects the pkgconfig file.
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2006-06-21 07:50:06 EDT
AFAICT, the include files go to the "wrong place" because you use
which overrides the Makefile.am value of
includedir = @includedir@/openobex

I'd suggest using in your %install section:
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2006-06-21 07:55:29 EDT
While we're at it, a few other small suggestions...

* %{_includedir}/openobex is unowned

* since openobex-devel includes a pkg-config file, it should
Requires: pkgconfig

* You could enable usb support with 
./configure option: --enable-usb
BuildRequires: libusb-devel
(not sure if there any consequences of doing so, so that's your call).
Comment 8 Harald Hoyer 2006-06-21 08:48:14 EDT
* %{_includedir}/openobex is unowned

good point

* since openobex-devel includes a pkg-config file, it should
Requires: pkgconfig

You can use openobex-devel without pkgconfig.

* You could enable usb support with 
./configure option: --enable-usb

will do
Comment 9 Harald Hoyer 2006-06-21 09:17:12 EDT
If I would use 
# make install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT
then the pkgconfig file would include the /usr/include/openobex directory which
would have the same effect like:
# sed -i -e 's#includedir=@includedir@#includedir=@includedir@/openobex#g'
Comment 10 Harald Hoyer 2006-06-21 09:18:12 EDT
hmm, no... forget it... comment #9 is wrong :-)
