Description Matthias Saou 2006-07-25 09:38:29 UTC
Qemu 0.8.2 has been released a few days ago. I've made a local build :
- Had to remove Patch2 (fixes got merged it seems)
- Had to add "texi2html" build requirement or *.html doc files weren't built

Addingg the texi2html build requirement also made the man pages build and
install, which seems like a good thing. So the %{_mandir}... line will need to
be uncommented from %files. Other than that, it builds and runs fine for me
(x86_64).

Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2006-08-23 14:59:12 UTC
ping? This is really a trivial update. Please just let me know if you want me to
take care of it.

Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2006-08-23 15:25:25 UTC
Feel free; thanks for offering.

Comment 3 Matthias Saou 2006-08-24 09:07:13 UTC
Done, 0.8.2 will be available for devel after the next push. It wasn't that
easy, though, since I was testing on RHEL4 x86_64, and ran into quite a few
differences on devel, then ppc specific :-)

If you had a minute to double check all the changes just to make sure, it would
be great. Here is the rpm %changelog entry :

* Wed Aug 23 2006 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 0.8.2-1
- Update to 0.8.2 (#200065).
- Drop upstreamed syscall-macros patch2.
- Put correct scriplet dependencies.
- Force install mode for the init script to avoid umask problems.
- Add %postun condrestart for changes to the init script to be applied if any.
- Update description with the latest "about" from the web page (more current).
- Update URL to qemu.org one like the Source.
- Add which build requirement.
- Don't include texi files in %doc since we ship them in html.
- Switch to using gcc34 on devel, FC5 still has gcc32.
- Add kernheaders patch to fix linux/compiler.h inclusion.
- Add target-sparc patch to fix compiling on ppc (some int32 to float).

Comment 4 David Woodhouse 2006-08-24 10:00:37 UTC
Heh. Welcome to my pain. Since you have access to x86_64, were you able to
confirm that we still need to disable the sparc targets? It'd be good if we
could build those on x86_64 again.

Comment 5 David Woodhouse 2006-08-24 11:00:51 UTC
All looks good to me, and seems to work on PPC. Thanks. 

Did you send the patches upstream?

Comment 6 Matthias Saou 2006-08-24 11:20:58 UTC
Removing the x86_64 specific target list passed to configure makes the package
still build on FC devel x86_64, so I'll push a second release with that change.

I didn't send the patches upstream. Feel free to do so (I'm not on any list),
but otherwise I can do it. FYI :
- The first patch is needed because linux/compiler.h is no longer present in FC6
  glibc-kernheader, and from what I've found, that include shouldn't be needed.
- The second patch seems to only affect ppc (the transformations are only needed
  there it seems), and seem like a simple oversight after changes to the params.

Comment 7 Matthias Saou 2006-08-24 11:43:29 UTC
* Thu Aug 24 2006 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 0.8.2-2
- Remove the target-list iteration for x86_64 since they all build again.
- Make gcc32 vs. gcc34 conditional on %{fedora} to share the same spec for
  FC5 and FC6.

That second change makes backporting this new package to FC-5 trivial, as
everything can be kept identical.
