Description Ville Skyttä 2007-01-28 22:26:13 UTC
chemical-mime-data produces a useless empty debuginfo package, apparently
due to (rightfully) being noarch content in an arch specific package due to
install paths.

Fix: disable -debuginfo with %define debug_package %{nil}

Comment 1 Julian Sikorski 2007-01-28 23:13:25 UTC
Well, the install paths thing is a bit weird. Upstream suggests that the
pkgconfig file should go to %{_datadir}/pkgconfig rather than to
%{_libdir}/pkgconfig. On the other hand, shared-mime-info and gnome-mime-data
install their .pc files to %{_libdir}/pkgconfig. I'm not sure which approach is
As for the fix, I'll attach a new spec but due to the nature of the internet
connection I'm currently using (HTTP proxy), I won't be able to commit that.
Feel free to do this.

Install to /usr/share/pkgconfig, change to noarch

Actually, I think installing to /usr/share/pkgconfig and changing to noarch is
a much better solution.  The pkgconfig file contains an unnecessary libdir
which varies between archs and should be pruned (upstream should be interested
in this) - this patch takes care of that and it should be good to go IMO.  Let
me know if you'd like me to commit this one instead.

Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2007-01-28 23:33:19 UTC
Oh, and bugs against shared-mime-info and gnome-mime-data should probably be
filed, I'll look into it.  shared-mime-info installs an arch dependent
executable so it doesn't benefit much, but gnome-mime-data looks like a noarch
candidate after the fix.

Comment 5 Julian Sikorski 2007-01-29 01:17:50 UTC
OK, please commit your version. One of the packages mentioned above contains a
notice in spec that it is not noarch, I think that was shared-mime-info.

Comment 6 Julian Sikorski 2007-01-29 01:18:32 UTC
OK, please commit your version. One of the packages mentioned above contains a
notice in spec that it is not noarch, I think that was shared-mime-info. I'll
contact upstream about pruning the libdir.

Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2007-01-29 15:26:11 UTC
Done for devel, build in progress:

I already submitted a (messy) shared-mime-info bug report upstream,
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9789 , but it'd be great if you
could do it for gnome-mime-data.

Comment 8 Julian Sikorski 2007-01-30 22:12:28 UTC
Quoting gnome bugzilla:
“Sorry, entering bugs into the product gnome-mime-data has been disabled.”

Comment 9 Julian Sikorski 2007-02-05 11:52:51 UTC
Upstream chemical-mime removed unnecessary .pc entries.

Comment 10 Ville Skyttä 2007-02-06 20:12:06 UTC
gnome-mime-data: bug 227553
