Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 228346
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
WindowMaker - 0.92.0-10.fc7.x86_64
File conflict in:
Packages with the same files:
WindowMaker - 0.92.0-10.fc7.i386
Created attachment 148045 [details]
- install WPrefs data files in %_datadir, and WPrefs in %_bindir
Beside (hopefully) fixing the multilib issue, I believe these are saner
install locations. I have built and installed, but not tested.
The real issue here is a key question:
Do we really need WindowMaker.i386 in the x86_64 repo just because
the dependency path of a WindowMaker -devel package leads to this
package? That means, is it possible to split off a package, on which
the -devel package can depend on without requiring the main package?
Further, files in /etc are no hard conflicts if they are marked
%config. They just lead to ugly and unnecessary .rpmsave creation.
I agree that it would be even better to split a -libs
subpackage but the patch I propose should be applied anyway
to correct installation locations.
It seems like a -libs package existed in the past and that it
WindowMaker packaging could be ameliorated a lot, in fact.
I think that something like a re-review could help.
Thanks for the patch. Seems better to me as well to put WPrefs stuff in the
'right' locations. The multi lib stuff is low priority so I will look at
splitting of a -libs package sometime next week when I will have more time for this.
Patrice if you dislike stuff about the wmaker package just drop me a mail and we
can discuss stuff.
