Sorry, forgot to mention that this is my first package, and I am looking for a
Comment 2 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-27 10:04:37 EDT
* No downloadable source. Please give the full URL in the Source tag, which
should be http://ftp.easysw.com/pub/htmldoc/1.8.26/htmldoc-1.8.26-source.tar.bz2
(ok, that one was kind of hard to find...)
Comment 3 Adam Goode 2006-05-27 11:20:01 EDT
Thank you for your comment.

I have created a new package here:

I used %{name} and %{version} in the Source tag. Is that ok, or should I have
put the URL in directly?
Comment 4 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-28 04:01:09 EDT
Using %{name} and %{version} in the Source tag is up to you. Some packagers
prefer using it, to avoid changing it at every new release, and some packagers
prefer the expanded form, to be able to quickly copy'n'paste into wget. Do what
you prefer.

You have a desktop file already available in the desktop subfolder, please use
it. However, you'll have to add --remove-category=X-Red-Hat-Base to
desktop-file-install, since we don't use it anymore.

The menu entry lacks an icon, please copy the png files in desktop to the proper
place in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/*/apps. (don't forget you'll have to add some
bits to the scriptlets, see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ScriptletSnippets,
"GTK+ icon cache")
Comment 5 Adam Goode 2006-05-29 00:52:01 EDT

I've put a new version:

This installs icons, desktop file, and MIME type. (Lots of scriptlets!)
Hope I've got the MIME stuff all right.
Comment 6 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-29 17:25:03 EDT
Almost there !

* Missing dependancy on update-desktop-database for %post and %postun (package

* Since you're rebuilding, the last 3 lines in the desktop-file-install call are
not properly lined-up (tabs instead of spaces)
Comment 7 Adam Goode 2006-05-29 22:46:59 EDT
Ok, I've fixed the desktop-file-install line-up problem.

I can add the dependencies for %post and %postun, but is
that still a problem? It looks like desktop-file-utils
fixed bug #180898 in 0.10-5 and 0.10-6.

Do I need to add the dependencies for FC4?
Comment 8 Aurelien Bompard 2006-05-30 03:54:12 EDT
Ah, that's true, I didn't know. In the bug, Ray said the fix will be backported
to FC4, so I think you can leave out the Requires entirely.

I found a small bug: if you start the graphical frontend, and click on the
"help" button, you have an error, it can't find the doc. The path is hardcoded
in the configure script, line 5916.
Since the new path depends on the version number, you have two options:
 - make a patch to change this line, and update it with each new version
 - change the line with a sed call in %prep, where maros such as %{version} are

I would choose the 2nd option, because it is less likely to cause errors in the
future (I know *I* would forget to update the patch at least once). But make
sure the regexp is sufficiently specific, this is a large file.
Comment 9 Adam Goode 2006-05-31 23:34:37 EDT
All right, I've added this to %prep:

sed -i 's/\(\$prefix\/share\/doc\/htmldoc\)/\1-%{version}/g' configure

And I also added doc/help.html to %doc.

New SRPM is uploaded, everything seems to work !

Comment 10 Aurelien Bompard 2006-06-01 07:36:39 EDT
