Description Ding-Yi Chen 2008-10-07 03:27:48 EDT
Spec URL: http://dchen.fedorapeople.org/files/rpms/fbterm.spec
SRPM URL: http://dchen.fedorapeople.org/files/rpms/fbterm-1.1-0.fc9.src.rpm

FbTerm is a fast terminal emulator for linux with frame buffer device. 
Features include: 
- mostly as fast as terminal of linux kernel while accelerated scrolling
  is enabled on framebuffer device 
- select font with fontconfig and draw text with freetype2, same as 
  Qt/Gtk+ based GUI apps 
- dynamicly create/destroy up to 10 windows initially running default
- record scrollback history for every window 
- auto-detect text encoding with current locale, support double width 
  scripts like  Chinese, Japanese etc 
- switch between configurable additional text encodings with hot keys
  on the fly 
- copy/past selected text between windows with mouse when gpm server 
  is running
Comment 1 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-10-10 00:38:04 EDT
rpmlint gave me
fbterm.i386: E: setuid-binary /usr/bin/fbterm root 04755
The file is setuid, this may be dangerous, especially if this  file is setuid

fbterm.i386: E: non-standard-executable-perm /usr/bin/fbterm 04755
A standard executable should have permission set to 0755. If you get this
message, it means that you have a wrong executable permissions in some files
included in your package.

also, I don't see any need of following in SPEC
%post -p /sbin/ldconfig
%postun -p /sbin/ldconfig

package failed to build on dist-f10 see

Can you update SRPM with above fixes?
Comment 2 Ding-Yi Chen 2008-10-16 02:19:06 EDT
Still not buildable with F-10, other issues are fixed.

SPEC: http://dchen.fedorapeople.org/files/rpms/fbterm.spec

Comment 3 Parag AN(पराग) 2008-10-16 03:16:04 EDT
Thanks to David Woodhouse for his help on IRC to fix F10 build issue. Actually problem is fbterm.cpp is using kernel header file 
#include <linux/signalfd.h>
which should be
#include <sys/signalfd.h>

1) I see following in build.log
configure: WARNING:     gpm.h dosn't exist! gpm mouse support will be disabled!
If you want you can add that support.
==> you can do that by adding BR:gpm-devel in SPEC

2) drop line in %build
CFLAGS="-D__GNUC__" ; export CFLAGS

3) defattr usage should be

4) Drop unnecessary file INSTALL from %docs

Make sure to fix above issues before committing to CVS.
