Description Ville Skyttä 2007-05-01 17:36:41 EDT

firmware-addon-dell produces an empty debuginfo package.  Doesn't look like
there's any native code in it, so it could be just disabled, fix attached.

Disable useless debuginfo package
Comment 2 Michael E Brown 2007-05-01 17:45:28 EDT

fix committed for next build.

because of F7 freeze, I had not planned on any new builds soon. This might not
go away until after F7 release.
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2007-05-01 18:29:21 EDT
Hmm, maybe I'm confused, but I saw a commit to firmware-tools which disables the
debuginfo package, not firmware-addon-dell which this bug is filed against.

However, firmware-tools was already noarch, so disabling the debuginfo package
in it is not necessary (except on EL3 where it's not noarch).  I did not see a
commit to firmware-addon-dell, which is noarch and is actually still producing
an empty debuginfo package per the sources in CVS's devel branch.

(Off topic: additionally, the sources for the 1.2.6 firmware-tools package in
CVS devel branch aren't in the CVS lookaside cache and the download URL gives a
404 not found.)

Yeah, I misread. I've applied the same patch to firmware-addon-dell now. (will
commit later tonight after I have synced this to my devel tree)
Comment 6 Ville Skyttä 2007-07-28 11:10:09 EDT
Looks like this has not yet been built for devel/F8.  Any news?
Comment 7 Michael E Brown 2007-08-01 12:15:35 EDT
I have an update queued up. I'll try to push this update on Thursday.
