Description: Package for logging incoming bytes on asynchronous serial ports

Package for logging incoming bytes on asynchronous serial ports.
It was written for loging calls on our telephone central, but
you can use it for any devices connected to serial ports. From
version 0.4 it can be used to send data through serial line.

1. Given how long since the last upstream release of this package it seems
unlikely, but any chance of them including a COPYING file?

2. Instead of the flags you set in the logserial-makefile.patch
perhaps you could set $RPM_OPT_FLAGS instead?

Comment 2 manuel wolfshant 2006-11-12 15:52:48 UTC
Thank you for the review.

With respect to the first suggestion: I have written the developer and kindly
asked him to include the proper license file in the next release.
With the second one: done. On my test system the new src.rpm compiles
sucessfully in mock.
Please find the modified spec and src.rpm at
http://wdl.lug.ro/linux/rpms/logserial/logserial.spec and

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2006-11-13 02:01:28 UTC
ok. Issue 1 isn't a blocker, just nice to have. 

Humm...on issue #2, I am not seeing the rpm opt flags being used... 
In my build.log I see: 

+ make -j2
gcc  -Wall -D_POSIX -D_SYSV -D_SELECT -D_HAVE_MACROS   -c -o logserial.o logserial.c

Comment 4 manuel wolfshant 2006-11-13 13:26:24 UTC
You are perfectly right, there was an error in the patch.
Please retry the new versions, available as
http://wdl.lug.ro/linux/rpms/logserial/logserial.spec and
Building in mock on a i386 machine with arch=i686 and without any argument
seemed OK. Unfortunately my x86_64 test machine is temporary out of function, so
I could not test that, too.

Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2006-11-13 21:33:35 UTC
Excellent. That version from comment #4 works fine. 

The rpm-opt-flags are used. It builds find here on x86_64 and i386. 

I don't see any further blockers, so this package is APPROVED. 

Don't forget to close this request NEXTRELEASE once it's been imported and built. 

Also consider reviewing another waiting package to help spread the reviewing load. 

Comment 6 manuel wolfshant 2006-11-13 23:18:47 UTC
Thank you, Kevin.

Sucessfully built in devel. Will close as soon as FC-5 and FC-6 are built, too.
