usage on linux machines. It is useful for those with a broadband connections 
that pay for their data or have download limits.
Comment 1 manuel wolfshant 2008-01-30 05:23:41 EST
The place of the "./configure" line is in %build, not in %prep, and unless there
is a very good reason to not do it, it should probably be replaced with
"%configure <any needed parameters>"
Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-01-30 05:34:35 EST
   Apply following patch which resolves
1) compiler flags not honored issue
2) remove unneeded "make install" call
3) remove unnecessary INSTALL file 

-%setup -q -n %{name}-0.4b
-./configure --libdir=%{_libdir}
+%setup -q -n %{name}-0.4b

-#nothing to build
+./configure --libdir=%{_libdir} --prefix=%{_prefix}
+%{__make} CFLAGS="$RPM_OPT_FLAGS" %{?_smp_mflags}

 mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_bindir}
 mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_mandir}/man1
-make install DESTDIR=%{buildroot}
-cp -p src/%{name} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_bindir}
-cp -p src/%{name}.1 $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_mandir}/man1
+install -p -m755 src/%{name} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_bindir}
+install -p -m644 src/%{name}.1 $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_mandir}/man1


-%exclude /usr/local/bin/%{name}
-%exclude /usr/local/man/man1/%{name}.1


When I tried to create patch I got some encoding issue to include pl language
description to be included in patch so pasting here directly.
Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-01-30 05:35:24 EST
oh yes. Change ./configure  to %configure in above patch

Thanks for review!
Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-01-30 06:39:33 EST
Nice. You got better SPEC than what I suggested based on your initial SPEC.
But I see that your SPEC in SRPM still contains INSTALL file
Also, I confused on bloc word in changelog. You can use section word instead of
Comment 8 Terje Røsten 2008-01-30 15:29:38 EST
Some pedantic issue:

You are using $RPM_BUILD_ROOT and %{buildroot}:

make install DESTDIR=%{buildroot}

it's the same thing, use pick one and use that.

There are no make step %build, it that correct?

Comment 9 Krzysztof Kurzawski 2008-01-30 16:06:42 EST
Spec URL: http://kurzawa.nonlogic.org/rpm/netmonitor/netmonitor.spec
SRPM URL: http://kurzawa.nonlogic.org/rpm/netmonitor/netmonitor-0.5-4.fc8.src.rpm

I think here is nothing to build.
Comment 10 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-01-30 23:36:29 EST
README clearly suggests that 
To compile netmon type the following command
./make install

Add make command to build section
make %{?_smp_mflags}

Comment 14 Terje Røsten 2008-01-31 05:57:25 EST
More pedantic things:

if you change make install line to

make install DESTDIR=$RPM_BUILD_ROOT INSTALL="%{__install} -p"

the timestamps will be preserved (which is good thing).

Comment 16 Kevin Fenzi 2008-01-31 13:11:01 EST
cvs done.
