Why are OO langpacks not noarch
Last modified: 2008-05-23 11:58:41 EDT
Description of problem:
openoffice.org-langpack-* files are arch specific, shouldn't the db be shared
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Large arch specific versions of each languages support files.
Move shared data to noarch rpms.
Because that's not how rpmbuild work unfortunately. If the sub rpms come from a
master rpm which is arch dependant then the subrpms are arch dependant on the
same arch. So its not possible to create noarch langpack rpms from the same
src.rpm that also outputs i386|ppc etc arch dependant rpms.
The only way to do it (with our current tooling) is to have a separate src.rpm
which only creates langpacks and not binary which isn't currently possible in OOo.
