Description Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2006-08-05 20:59:22 EDT
Spec URL: http://rpm.greysector.net/extras/openbabel.spec
SRPM URL: http://rpm.greysector.net/extras/openbabel-2.0.2-1.src.rpm
Open Babel is a free, open-source version of the Babel chemistry file
translation program. Open Babel is a project designed to pick up where
Babel left off, as a cross-platform program and library designed to
interconvert between many file formats used in molecular modeling,
computational chemistry, and many related areas.

I couldn't figure out how to build python and perl bindings without openbabel being already installed, so if you want to test it, build it as is first, install openbabel-devel and then rebuild, uncommenting the defines at the top of the specfile.
Comment 1 Paul F. Johnson 2006-08-06 12:19:38 EDT
Summary: The IUPAC International Chemical Identifier (InChI^TM) library

The piece in brackets should just read TM. ^TM is causing problems on my
buildsys in mock

For both the main and subpackage

Requires: %{name} = %{version}-%{release}

Needs pkgconfig as well.

%attr(755,root,root) %{_libdir}/%{name}/*.so

Should you not be just claiming the %{name} directory?

Comment 4 Paul F. Johnson 2006-08-06 16:18:01 EDT
mock comes up clean once I change the ^TM to just TM in the spec file (this
though could just be my system).

Once you've addressed the other small issues in #1, I'll do the full review.
Comment 5 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2006-08-07 05:16:12 EDT

- ^TM removed
- pkgconfig Req: added
- simplified file lists
- inchi-debuginfo isn't generated, because all the debuginfo is in
Comment 6 Paul F. Johnson 2006-08-07 17:21:03 EDT
2.0.2-2 fails to build

File not found by glob : /var/tmp/openbabel-2.0.2-2-root-build/usr/lib/libinchi.so.*
File not found : /var/tmp/openbabel-2.0.2-2-root-build/usr/lib/include/inchi
File not found : /var/tmp/openbabel-2.0.2-2-root-build/usr/lib/libinchi.so

This is outside of mock
Comment 7 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2006-08-07 17:46:32 EDT
Fixed. I uncommented the defines at the top by accident. Uploaded with the same
release, as there's no functional change.
Comment 8 Paul F. Johnson 2006-08-07 18:11:45 EDT
I've commented the two defines (_with_perl and _with_python) at the top but
still get the same files not being packaged.
Comment 9 Toshio Kuratomi 2006-08-07 19:09:54 EDT
%defines can't be commented (rpm wart).  Instead of doing #%define, do #define
or similar.
Comment 10 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2006-08-07 19:34:44 EDT
That's why I told you to comment them with #% (hash, percent) explicitly.
Comment 11 Paul F. Johnson 2006-08-09 17:28:51 EDT

No dupes
Compiles cleanly
No permission issues
No directory ownership problems
rpmlint happy
packages can compile against it without a problem (xdrawchem used as a test)
Has documentation
Licences fine
Group okay
Has R pkgconfig for the devel package

Comment 12 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2006-08-09 19:03:54 EDT
Package imported and built for devel, FC-4 and FC-5 branches requested.
Comment 13 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2007-12-12 08:02:14 EST
Package Change Request
Package Name: openbabel
New Branches: EL-5
Comment 14 Kevin Fenzi 2007-12-12 14:31:56 EST
