Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468981
non-standard-dir-in-usr - /usr/i686-pc-mingw32 is now a valid path
Last modified: 2009-09-09 11:40:16 EDT
The MinGW packaging guidelines were approved recently.
/usr/i686-pc-mingw32 is an acceptable path for installing
MinGW packages in Fedora. (Yes, it's horrible, non-FSB
compliant, and no one really likes it, but it's a hard
requirement for gcc cross-compilers that we aren't in a
position to change).
rpmlint gives this warning:
mingw32-filesystem.noarch: W: non-standard-dir-in-usr i686-pc-mingw32
If rpmlint is running in Fedora and the package name begins
with 'mingw32-', then this warning is now wrong.
(See also: bug 467260)
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Closing - rpmlint no longer reports this as a problem.
