Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2007-11-07 12:08:33 EST
Builds OK, although I have to admit I don't understand why you change -O6 into
-O2 in the configure script, then run it, then change -O2 to %{optflags} in the
generated makefile.  But it's not like it matters.

Is there any upstream at all for this software?  The spec has no URL: tag, and
Source0: isn't a URL either.  I'm guessing that a proper URL: would be
"http://www.bergo.eng.br/eboard/" and Source0: should be

rpmlint says:

  eboard.x86_64: E: standard-dir-owned-by-package /usr/share/man/man6
  eboard.x86_64: E: standard-dir-owned-by-package /usr/share/man/man1
Definite blocker here; the package should not own these directories.

  eboard.x86_64: W: devel-file-in-non-devel-package /usr/bin/eboard-config
I'm not sure what the point of the -config script is since there aren't any
libraries or headers, but I think it would be pointless to make a -devel package
just for it.  Still, do you know what this is used for?  It doesn't supply any
useful information, and the --datadir output seems actively wrong (should be
/usr/share/eboard, I'd think, but it's just /usr/share).

  eboard.x86_64: W: summary-not-capitalized eboard chess board interface
There's not usually any need to include the package name in the Summary: since
"eboard - eboard chess board interface" is a bit redundant.

  eboard.x86_64: E: no-description-tag
You definitely need something in your %description.

  eboard.x86_64: W: no-version-in-last-changelog
See the "Changelogs" section of
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines for the proper changelog formats.

  eboard.x86_64: W: no-url-tag
Should at least point to the upstream website.
