Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 261821
Debian patches not applied + 2 interesting patches from CVS
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
I've been working to get an app that only works with openmotif to work with
lesstif. During this work I found out that the debian patch which is part of the
SRPM never gets applied. Well it does get applied, but that only results in the
creation of a debian dir, in that dir is a patches dir and there are the actual
debian patches and these never get applied.
Atleast the following 2 patches from debian seem interesting:
During this same investigation I also found 2 patches in upstream CVS which are
interesting, one fixes the possible printing of text outside a widgets area, the
other fixes a grave bug (inverted check) in resource merging. I think it is a
good idea to include both in the Fedora package.
Created attachment 177401 [details]
Fix a grave bug in resource merging
Created attachment 177421 [details]
Fix ossible printing of text outside widget area
Humm... no idea why I was assigned this bug.
Reassigning to the lesstif package maintainer.
Hans, you can go ahead and apply the patches you judge to be
right. It may take some time for me to do it.
Also i think that it would be right to apply the debian patches
using patch from within the spec file instead of adding the
patches as regular Patches:.
