Description Sebastian Dziallas 2008-08-06 04:14:42 EDT
Spec URL:
Description: Avogadro is an advanced molecular editor designed for cross-platform use in computational chemistry, molecular modeling, bioinformatics, materials science, and related areas. It offers flexible rendering and a powerful plugin architecture.
By the way: This is my first package.
Comment 1 Thorsten Leemhuis 2008-08-08 15:13:15 EDT
just a quick initial review from just looking at the spec file:

- > BuildRequires: cmake >= 2.4.5, qt4-devel >= 4.3.0, eigen-devel >= 1.0.5, openbabel-devel >= 2.2.0, python-devel >= 2.5.1

 Thats a pretty long line; would look much cleaer if you split it

- > Requires: libavogadro = %{version}

 Are you sure that's needed? RPM will likely add a dep on the libs it needs automatically

- the description is quite small (just 55 chars instead off less then 80); no blocker, but looks odd

- > %package -n libavogadro

 I'd say the libs package should be called avogadro-libs -- that's the usual way to name the libs subpackage  in Fedora 

- > # set permissions

 Please add a comment to the spec file why you do this
Comment 2 Sebastian Dziallas 2008-08-09 06:28:17 EDT
I have uploaded a new version, which should fix your points and renamed the shared library package to avogadro-libs.

Comment 3 Sebastian Dziallas 2008-08-09 15:23:25 EDT
Here is a new version, which contains a reorganized spec file and fixes some things concerning the icon implementation.

Comment 5 Thorsten Leemhuis 2008-09-14 03:55:09 EDT
= general =

- rpmlint mentions
 >  avogadro.src: W: strange-permission avogadro-0.8.1.tar.bz2 0777
 please fix

 > avogadro-libs.x86_64: W: no-documentation
 > avogadro-devel.x86_64: W: no-documentation
 Can be ignored

- doesn't build in mock (and thus will faill in the Fedora buildsys):

 > /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.5185: line 37: desktop-file-install: command not found

- from mock right after the first cmake call:

 > -- docbook tools not found, doc targets disabled

Please check; docs should be shipped normally. Likely needs just a porper BuildRequire as well

== libs subpackage ==

- Group should be "System Environment/Libraries"

== devel subpackage ==

- Change 
 > Requires:       %{name} = %{version}
 > Requires:       %{name}-libs = %{version}-%{release} 

== More Comments ==

Looks good otherwise. Once the above things are fixed I'll approve the package and sponser you.
