Review Request: nightview - A general astronomical software package to control of a CCD camera
Last modified: 2009-01-07 16:13:50 EST
Nightview is a general astronomical software package to control of a CCD
camera together with a telescope. It provides an intuitive graphical
interface for getting of individual exposures and a telescope possitioning.
An advanced command line interface is also offered to support of a scripting
and a long time serie imaging.
Nightview is designed as a fully network transparent providing maximum
flexibility of its usage. Moreover, all components are prepared with
possibility to be simply superseded by an user's equivalent for support of
individual improvements and possible requested extendings.
nightview.i386: E: no-binary
The package should be of the noarch architecture because it doesn't contain
This is a convenience meta-package that drags in the whole suite when installed. It, obviously, can't be nade noarch separately. That might not be true for RPM 4.6, which makes it possible for subpackages to be noarch, but since it also introduces architecture-specific dependencies, it might make more sense to leave it as it is, architecture specific, and let it depend on packages of specific architectures.
Builds fine in fedora-5-i386-epel mock, the above is the only RPMLint warning.
1) you're missing desktop-file-utils in BuildRequires
2) gcc 4.3 problem: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=918010&name=build.log

I somehow happened to submit old package named as new. Corrected now. The links, hopefully correct this time, still apply:
Built fine in fedora-development-i386.
Added workaround for bug #478680
* You're not packing latest version of nightview (0.3.2)
* Some of files are GPLv2+
If not it looks working fine - too bad we don't have a CCD camera to try it out :)

The whole work is distributed as GPLv2.

A bigger pity is lack of open SBIG specification I'd say...
You're right, it's sad. Also, please mail Dr. Hroch with patches.

I think in 0.3.2 he included fix for gcc4.3, which was our only upstreamable patch. Other ones are specific to our build.
New Package CVS Request

(Note that I've found a typo in Summary and made it a bit shorter. I'll change it in the package upon commit as well).
Thanks for the review Marek; Thanks for CVS Kevin.
