Description: Block device settings tool
Comment 1 Jeff Garzik 2006-04-04 12:24:13 EDT
Similar to "ethtool" package, found in Fedora Core.  By the same author (me) as
ethtool, too.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2006-04-04 15:29:33 EDT

rpmlint complains:

E: blktool zero-length /usr/share/doc/blktool-4/ChangeLog

This can be ignored.

The _sbindir macro is redefined, this is OK, however it should be probably later
used instead of the plain /sbin.

There is missing BuildRequires: glib2-devel
Comment 3 Jeff Garzik 2006-04-04 15:49:03 EDT
Updated to remove empty ChangeLog and add BuildRequires.

_sbindir thing is just aping what evolution has wrought in blktool's sister
package, Fedora Core ethtool.  No idea why, but its important that both of these
packages behave in a similar manner.

Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2006-04-05 04:02:08 EDT
About the _sbindir - I didn't say that it shouldn't be redefined but that
%{_sbindir} should be used instead of /sbin in the %install and %files sections
probably. But I don't insist on that.

Also probably the INSTALL file should be also removed from %doc because there
are only the generic installation instructions.

However these two above are only nitpicks so I leave it on you if you want to
fix them.
