Description Michael Schwendt 2007-02-19 18:44:24 UTC
Spec URL: http://home.arcor.de/ms2002sep/tmp/compat-wxGTK26.spec
SRPM URL: http://home.arcor.de/ms2002sep/tmp/compat-wxGTK26-2.6.3-1.src.rpm

Description: wxWidgets/GTK2 is the GTK2 port of the C++ cross-platform wxWidgets
GUI library, offering classes for all common GUI controls as well as a
comprehensive set of helper classes for most common application tasks,
ranging from networking to HTML display and image manipulation.


Package is customised to coexist with wxGTK >= 2.8 for Fedora 7. The -devel package can be installed in parallel with wxGTK-devel, too.

Audacity 1.3.2-beta can be built with this, for example. With >= 2.8 it locks up, and more recent CVS snapshots of Audacity introduce new problems.

Comment 1 Gérard Milmeister 2007-02-20 17:10:24 UTC
rpmlint for compat-wxGTK26:
W: compat-wxGTK26 invalid-license wxWidgets Library Licence
- ok, this is commented in the spec
E: compat-wxGTK26 obsolete-not-provided wxGTK
E: compat-wxGTK26 obsolete-not-provided wxGTK-gl
- ?

rpmlint for compat-wxGTK26-devel:
W: compat-wxGTK26-devel invalid-license wxWidgets Library Licence
- ok
E: compat-wxGTK26-devel obsolete-not-provided wxGTK-devel
- ?
E: compat-wxGTK26-devel only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
- annoying but irrelevant error
W: compat-wxGTK26-devel no-documentation
W: compat-wxGTK26-devel symlink-should-be-relative /usr/bin/wx-2.6-config
- this should be fixed

This is normal for compat-* packages. We create a new package
namespace, which shall be separate from the wxGTK >= 2.8 packages,
also with regard to how RPM handles upgrades of virtual packages.

> W: compat-wxGTK26-devel symlink-should-be-relative
> /usr/bin/wx-2.6-config /usr/lib/wx/config/gtk2-unicode-release-2.6

Will fix.

Comment 4 Gérard Milmeister 2007-02-22 21:21:40 UTC
rpmlint compat-wxGTK26-debuginfo-2.6.3-2.i386.rpm:

W: compat-wxGTK26-debuginfo spurious-executable-perm
E: compat-wxGTK26-debuginfo script-without-shebang

Some people insist on this being fixed :-)

Otherwise, the package has already been reviewed in a slightly different form.
It installs correctly as far as I can see.
