Description Todd Zullinger 2008-01-11 16:54:10 EST
mtools-3.9.11-2.fc8.i386.rpm (in F-8 and rawhide) includes
/usr/share/info/dir.gz, which seems like an unintended file for the mtools
package.  Is there a reason for this?
Comment 1 Adam Tkac 2008-01-14 09:18:57 EST
You're right. File wrote above is bogus and is not part of mtools. Fix is
commited in CVS, build will wait for gcc 4.3. I'm not going to fix this minor
problem in F8. Thanks for report
Comment 2 Todd Zullinger 2008-01-14 10:19:16 EST
You don't want to remove the install-info calls from %post and %preun.  Those
are needed to properly install the info files as per:

Without them, you'll get rpmlint errors like this:

mtools.i386: E: info-files-without-install-info-postin

What's probably better is to remove the dir.gz file that mtools installs in the
buildroot during %install.

While you're poking the spec, there are a few other warnings and errors from
rpmlint that you may be interested in (all easy to clean up :):

$ rpmlint mtools-3.9.11-2.1.fc8.src.rpm 
mtools.src: E: non-utf8-spec-file
mtools.src: E: tag-not-utf8 %changelog
mtools.src: W: invalid-license GPlv2+

$ rpmlint mtools-3.9.11-2.1.fc8.i386.rpm 
mtools.i386: E: info-files-without-install-info-postin
mtools.i386: E: info-files-without-install-info-postun
mtools.i386: W: file-not-utf8 /usr/share/doc/mtools-3.9.11/Changelog
mtools.i386: E: tag-not-utf8 %changelog
mtools.i386: W: invalid-license GPlv2+

If you're busy and not in any hurry, I'll try to make some time in the next day
or so to patch and test the minor tweaks needed to fix up these warnings.  I
just don't have time this morning for that. :)  (It doesn't seem that mtools
builds properly at all in rawhide at the moment anyway, so there seems to be no
