Description Rick L Vinyard Jr 2006-08-19 21:02:48 EDT
Spec URL: http://miskatonic.cs.nmsu.edu/pub/nqc.spec



Not Quite C is a simple language with a C-like syntax that can be used to
program Lego's RCX programmable brick (from the Mindstorms set).

This is built on Simon Perreault's work, which is a closed duplicate of this bug report.

About the warnings:
I don't know of any other app using the lego group.
The udev/group rules are based on fuse's spec, so if this is wrong at least I've got company.   :)

Simon's original submission is here:
Comment 2 Paul F. Johnson 2006-08-20 06:17:44 EDT

You don't have anything in Requires(pre) for this (or the similar one in postun)
Comment 3 Paul F. Johnson 2006-08-20 06:27:00 EDT
rpmlint warnings
.src.rpm : mixed used of spaces and tabs
rpm : non-conffile-in-etc /etc/udev/rules.d/60-legousbtower.rules
      dangerous-command-in-%postun groupdel

I'm not worried about the src.rpm warning, but am about the two in the rpm
(especially the dangerous command one).

Fails to build in mock
/bin/sh: flex: command not found

Comment 5 Paul F. Johnson 2006-08-20 11:10:41 EDT
Please remove the groupdel from the next iteration of the spec file - it's a
recipe for disaster. Does the %pre check to ensure that lego doesn't already
exist first? It looks like it does.

- Removed groupdel lego
- Added faq, manual and guide docs
- Added flex BuildRequires and groupadd Requires(pre)
- Added -f option to groupadd (success if group exists)

It build fine in mock (x86_64) now. 

Also, I tested the groupadd -f option to ensure that it doesn't have any 
problems with the group if it's already present.

Builds fine in mock.

It's 19:37 in the UK which can mean only one thing, it's time for the official
UK review procedure...

(cue naff 90's music trying to sounds like crumby '06 noises)

At 10...

No ownership problems
rpmlint is clean (well, spaces/tabs in srpm and config file in rpm)
builds clean in mock (i386)
No dupes
No devel, so no pkgconfig, no .so/.la problems
software does as it should
no problems with documentation
consistent use of macros
upstream matches the package (version and md5)
works fine with smp_mflags

And this weeks number 1...

It controls the lego!

(fade really terrible music)
