Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 438597
alpine upstream available at 1.10
Last modified: 2008-03-24 14:02:51 EDT
Alpine is available from upstream at version 1.10; version 1.00-2 is the current
version available from yum.
I'm wondering if there's a specific reason for this; if not, I'm willing to help
update it if the package owner(s) is/are busy.
No specific reason, other than not being aware that a new release was available
I can upload a patch for the specfile for ya if you like, it's building on my
computer right now. (man it's intensive ;) )
Created attachment 298849 [details]
patch for alpine specfile from 1.00-2 to 1.10-1
It was a simple upgrade, I tested it on my computer and koji, and it was happy.
Out of habit I ran it through rpmlint just to be sure, and the license was bad,
so I changed it to the proper one.
There is a reason: the Fedora 9 freeze that I think just ended. I would also
like to add --without-debug (or similar) to the spec. It's also a holiday
weekend and I'm traveling, so if either co-maintainer has time before next
Tuesday feel free. :)
I can crank this out (for rawhide at least).

Looks like the help output is wrong, you have to use "--enable-debug=no".
keep in mind the license is now incorrect, it should be changed to ASL 2.0 ...
Thanks, I changed the license string (note it's the same license as alpine has
This issue is resolved in this alpine build in testing:
You may download it there for early access, or wait for it to get pushed.
