TODO: add udev rules to autoload firmware.
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2008-02-28 11:16:53 EST
Updated to add udev rules.
Comment 2 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-03-03 14:13:15 EST
  3 Release:        1

It is fine that this doesn't contain dist tag as this package doesn't ship any
executable and is release independent. (Just a note to me and other reviewers
who may eventually look at this.)

  6 License:        GPL

This is no longer valid, it needs the version specification, e.g. GPL+, GPLv2 or

According to LICENSE file this is GPLv2+

 18 %setup -q -c

No need for -c, tarball actually contains midisport-firmware-1.2 directory

 26 install -pm 0644 *.{fw,mpg} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/lib/firmware

This is not correct, this package has not *.fw or *.mpg files. Did you mean
*.ihx? It doesn't build due to this. I'll continue the review once it builds.

 28 # Install the license with the firmware
 29 mv LICENSE license-midisport.txt

What was the reason for installing license in /lib/firmware? It should be
included in %doc instead. Forthermore, please add README to %doc (and probably
also ChangeLog).

 31 install -pm 0644 81-midisport.rules $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/etc/udev/rules.d/
 46 /etc/udev/rules.d/81-midisport.rules

Please replace occurences of /etc with %{_sysconfdir}

 49 * Thu Feb 28 2008 Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com>

Please include - version-release (sans disttag, " - 1.2-1" in this case) at the
end of changelog header
Comment 3 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-03-03 14:20:03 EST
Something from rpmlint:

midisport-firmware.noarch: E: description-line-too-long This package contains
the firmware for M-Audio/Midiman USB MIDI and Audio devices
Your description lines must not exceed 79 characters. If a line is exceeding
this number, cut it to fit in two lines.

midisport-firmware.noarch: W: non-conffile-in-etc
A non-executable file in your package is being installed in /etc, but is not
a configuration file. All non-executable files in /etc should be configuration
files. Mark the file as %config in the spec file.

Please mark the udev rules file as %config. rpmlint will probably complain that
it's not %config(noreplace). That's fine, ignore it.

And some more issues:

 32 install -pm 0644 81-midisport.rules $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/etc/udev/rules.d/

Replace 81-midisport.rules with %{SOURCE1}
Create the directory $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_sysconfdir}/udev/rules.d/ prior to
copying to it.

That should be all.

Comment 4 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-03-03 14:24:29 EST
One more thing; you rules seem to be incorrect.

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{PRODUCT}=="763/1010/*", RUN+="/sbin/fxload -D
$env{DEVNAME} -s /etc/firmware/MidiSportLoader.ihx -I
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{PRODUCT}=="763/1020/*", RUN+="/sbin/fxload -D
$env{DEVNAME} -s /etc/firmware/MidiSportLoader.ihx -I

You install the files into /lib/firmware, not /etc/firmware
Comment 5 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-03-03 14:28:04 EST
And yet one more cosmetical one:

Change the Source0 tag not to point to a specific mirror:
Comment 6 Dave Jones 2008-03-03 15:18:37 EST
Both files updated with comments from above. Thanks for the review.
Comment 7 Lubomir Kundrak 2008-03-03 15:46:52 EST
install -pm 0644 *.{*.ihx} $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/lib/firmware
You didn't mean this, did you?

%doc license-midisport.txt README Changelog
license file is called LICENSE and not license-midisport.txt
