Description Kairo Araujo 2008-01-22 12:15:01 EST
Spec URL: http://kairo.freeshell.org/devel/fedora/tcptrack/tcptrack.spec
SRPM URL: http://kairo.freeshell.org/devel/fedora/tcptrack/tcptrack-1.2.0-1.fc8.src.rpm
tcptrack is a sniffer which displays information about TCP connections
it sees on a network interface. It passively watches for connections on
the network interface, keeps track of their state and displays a list of
connections in a manner similar to the unix 'top' command. It displays
source and destination addresses and ports, connection state, idle time,
and bandwidth usage

P.S.: I'm looking for sponsor. Thanks.

Will review.
Comment 2 Allisson Azevedo 2008-01-22 12:53:58 EST

- Rpmlint against tcptrack-1.2.0-1.fc9.src.rpm:

tcptrack.src: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 1, tab: line 13)
tcptrack.src: W: strange-permission tcptrack-1.2.0.tar.gz 0770
tcptrack.src: W: strange-permission tcptrack.spec 0770

- Source0 Should be:       
Comment 5 Allisson Azevedo 2008-01-22 15:01:47 EST
Well, everything is okay, the last step:

- Remove requires section

For this package require section is unecessary.
Comment 7 Allisson Azevedo 2008-01-22 16:01:10 EST
Okay, approved.

   This package (tcptrack) is APPROVED by me
Comment 8 Jason Tibbitts 2008-01-24 15:51:34 EST
Allisson, are you able to sponsor Kairo?  I don't see you on the list of sponsors.
Comment 9 Allisson Azevedo 2008-01-24 16:25:59 EST
Hi Jason,

Sure, i can sponsor Kairo.
Comment 10 Jason Tibbitts 2008-01-24 18:46:01 EST
Really?  What's your FAS ID?  I don't anyone that looks to be you on the list of
sponsors, and I don't recall a FESCo vote on granting you sponsor status.  It's
always possible that I'm missing something, though.
Comment 11 Allisson Azevedo 2008-01-24 22:31:56 EST
You're right, i don't submit my name for sponsor yet, but, i think it's time now :)
Comment 12 manuel wolfshant 2008-01-27 18:23:14 EST
Upstream (http://www.rhythm.cx/~steve/devel/tcptrack/release/1.2.0/docs/INSTALL)
lists only libpcap>=0.7.2 as a BR. Any particular reason to raise the bar to
libpcap>=0.9.7 and to add a specific version (> 5.6) ? I have tested on Centos
5/x86_64 and it builds and works OK.

There is no need to explicitly list libpcap under Requires. rpmbuild will pick
it automatically.

The package does not properly build in Rawhide/x86_64. I have attached the
failed build log.

Hi Manuel,

I make a scratch build, the result is here:

This package build for x86_64.

Kairo, I'll sponsor you once I see a couple of reviews performed by you.

Allisson: indeed scratch builds work, there must be a problem on my system.
