Description Ville Skyttä 2006-05-30 17:25:25 EDT
texmaker's debuginfo package is useless:

$ rpm -qlp
(contains no files)

Comment 1 Deji Akingunola 2006-05-30 23:37:58 EDT
Thanks for this bug report, it's really a packaging error. i had not been
careful enough in properly checking exactly what's installed. texmaker actually
doesn't produce any architecture dependent library, so it should have been noarch.
Will correct this asap.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2006-05-31 02:13:47 EDT
/usr/bin/texmaker most certainly is not architecture independent:
texmaker: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for
GNU/Linux 2.6.9, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9,
Comment 3 Deji Akingunola 2006-05-31 05:49:26 EDT
ok, i'm not sure what's happening here now. I noticed the qt4' qmake option of a
NO_DEBUG option in the old build log,can that be the source of the problem?
Anyway, I'll try and go revert the 'noarch' changes.
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2006-05-31 13:45:13 EDT
The problem can be easily seen in the build log:
strip "/var/tmp/texmaker-1.3-1.fc6-root-mockbuild/usr/bin/texmaker"

Get rid of that wherever it comes from (and remove noarch) and that should be it.

Appears to be qt4's fault, see bug #193602

Suggestions, workarounds, comments welcome.

Yeah, and I've just worked around it in texmaker's spec by passing QMAKE_STRIP=
to qmake4.
"qmake4 -unix QMAKE_STRIP= PREFIX=u%{buildroot}%{_prefix} texmaker.pro"

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2006-06-08 18:08:01 EDT
That's a much better workaround than the other idea(s) I had been
entertaining... thanks.

Or... another option is to set (in qt4) the default valute of QMAKE_STRIP to be
empty.  Opinions?
Comment 8 Deji Akingunola 2006-06-08 18:40:43 EDT
I've been wondering too, why is the default value 'strip'. If doesn't have
side-effects, please go ahead and make the default null in qt4.
