Description David Woodhouse 2008-09-10 16:20:10 UTC
Spec URL: http://david.woodhou.se/0xFFFF.spec
SRPM URL: http://david.woodhou.se/0xFFFF-0.3.2-1.fc10.src.rpm
The 'Open Free Fiasco Firmware Flasher' aka 0xFFFF utility implements
a free (GPL3) userspace handler for the NOLO bootloader and related
utilities for the Nokia Internet Tablets like flashing setting device
options, packing/unpacking FIASCO firmware format and more..

Comment 1 Fabian Affolter 2008-09-13 08:04:38 UTC
There is a new version available. 0.3.9.  Maybe you should update the spec.

This is only an informal review because it's my second.

RPM Lint:  ok
Package name:  ok
Spec file: ok
  - use 'Source0: 'http://www.nopcode.org/0xFFFF/get/%{name}-%{version}.tar.gz' instead of 'Source0: http://www.nopcode.org/0xFFFF/get/0xFFFF-0.3.2.tar.gz'
  - %description: At the end of the sentence is one point enough.
  - use macros like %{_bindir}/%{name} instead %{_bindir}/0xFFFF

In the tarball is a directory 'gui'. Does this package provide a GUI? If yes, a .desktop file would be nice to integrate it in the desktop environment. https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Desktop_files

I don't much like using %{_bindir}/%{name} for the binary -- so I'll avoid the issue by using %{_bindir}/* instead :)

We don't build the GUI part -- just the command line tool.

Thanks for the review.

In the build log I get:
cd src/gui && make all

Since you claim that you do not build the GUI, maybe the above could be skipped ?
Especially as a bit later in the build log we can see:
  cp logotool/logotool /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/0xFFFF-0.3.9-1.fc10.x86_64/usr/bin
which you DO pack and include in the final rpm. Despite that logotool has not been compiled using RPM_OPT_FLAGS

David, please fix the above and I'll happily approve the package.

I hope that
 uncompress.c:108: warning: format '%d' expects type 'int', but argument 3 has type 'long int'

does not translate in a buffer overflow.

All issues are fixed, package is APPROVED.
Thanks Fabian for pre-review

Comment 6 Fabian Affolter 2008-10-27 11:01:16 UTC
David, Manuel approved your package.  Now you can go on with the CVS procedure.


Comment 7 David Woodhouse 2008-11-02 11:12:13 UTC
New Package CVS Request
Package Name: 0xFFFF
Short Description: The Open Free Fiasco Firmware Flasher
Owners: dwmw2
Branches: F-9 devel

Comment 8 Dennis Gilmore 2008-11-03 18:56:42 UTC
CVS Done

Comment 9 Fabian Affolter 2008-11-10 21:21:55 UTC
David, I see you have build 0xFFFF for F10, but I don't see it in the
repos.  Have you made updates in the update system at https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates ?

Comment 10 David Woodhouse 2008-11-10 23:18:00 UTC
I have now. I was having fun watching all the bug reports for a package which hadn't even been _shipped_ yet... :)
