spec file patch - cleanups
Please find attached a small patch for the spec which makes rpmlint happier. There are some errors left:
rpmlint of dump:
dump.x86_64: E: zero-length /etc/dumpdates
dump.x86_64: E: explicit-lib-dependency bzip2-libs
dump.x86_64: E: explicit-lib-dependency e2fsprogs-libs
dump.x86_64: E: explicit-lib-dependency libselinux
dump.x86_64: E: explicit-lib-dependency libsepol
dump.x86_64: E: explicit-lib-dependency zlib
I can understand the need of the zero-length dumpdates, but I do not understand why does the spec say:
# This Requires is now mandatory because we only ship static binaries, and
# need to ensure the "disk" group is created before installation (#60461)
Requires: setup, e2fsprogs-libs, zlib, bzip2-libs, device-mapper
Requires: rmt, libselinux, libsepol, glibc
but later on you do:
%configure --disable-static \
Of course rpmbuild picks all requires automatically, so I guess you should drop either the explicit requires or the --disable-static.
Thanks for specfile patch, it's ok. I removed explicit requires as well so dump-0.4b41-10.fc11 should be sane.
One more thing, probably minor: in the build.log I see:
configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --with-dumpdates
Leftover from a previous version ?

ah, that option has been changed to "--with-dumpdatespath" but we don't need it at all, it is set correctly by default. I commited removal to CVS.
Thanks for review.
