Comment 2 Susi Lehtola 2010-01-01 18:37:04 UTC
- Change
 Requires:       /sbin/chkconfig /sbin/service
 Requires: chkconfig initscripts
to speed up dependency resolution.

- Patch1 but no Patch0?

- Version is really 2, not 2.0. There's already an Epoch defined, so this could be rectified by an epoch bump.

- Source URL should be
Ideally %{version} macro should be used here.

- %configure picks up correct compiler flags.
should be
 make %{?_smp_mflags}
to enable SMP compilation.

- You can drop
 mkdir -p %{buildroot}%{_sbindir}
 mkdir -p %{buildroot}%{_initrddir}
 mkdir -p %{buildroot}%{_sysconfdir}/sysconfig
 mkdir -p %{buildroot}%{_mandir}/man{1,8}
as this is automatically done by make install.

- If you
 %define _sbindir /sbin
at the top of the spec file, you can use plain %configure and %{_sbindir} in %files.

Comment 3 Susi Lehtola 2010-01-01 18:41:44 UTC
You might want to change the .gz suffixes to .* in %files.

Comment 4 Susi Lehtola 2010-01-01 18:43:37 UTC
(In reply to comment #3)
> MUST: The package must be named according to the Package Naming Guidelines. OK

Whoops, this is a negatory.

According to the Package Naming Guidelines, the name of the package should be rng-tools, not rng-utils. The package should be renamed to rng-utils. The renamal could be done alongside with this review.

Comment 5 Jeff Garzik 2010-03-24 19:40:15 UTC
Why should the package name deviate from the upstream name?

This will only add confusion to users.

Comment 6 Jeff Garzik 2010-03-24 19:40:57 UTC
Whoops, nevermind.  That last comment is obviously invalid.

Comment 7 Susi Lehtola 2010-03-25 01:11:39 UTC
Obsoleted by new review request due to renamal.
