CodeAnalyst is a performance analysis suite. It provids graphical 
utilitys for running Oprofile, and analyzing result on AMD-based systems. 
CodeAnalyst includes several features to aid profile analysis such as 
inline-function analysis, code-block analysis, and a utility for 
profile comparison, DiffAnalayst.

This is my first package, and I am seeking a sponsor.
Comment 2 Parag AN(पराग) 2009-02-03 00:00:10 EST
Welcome to Fedora Project.
You first need to learn Fedora Packaging Guidelines. See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingGuidelines

Read this carefully and you will find many changed needed to your SPEC to follow fedora packaging guidelines.
Feel free to ask any questions on #fedora-devel on Freenode or fedora-devel mailing list or ask here.

Also, you should look into

You need to do 2 things
1) submit some more packages with enough packaging quality.
2) start doing pre-reviews of packages from queue
  Note that as you are not sponsored yet, you should only do unofficial
pre-reviews where you only comments review and can not able to accept package.
  This will ensure that you have got sufficient understanding of rpm packaging
and also review process.
  Don't forget to comment bug numbers here when you do some pre-reviews.

Take help of following links while posting reviews.

Comment 4 Suravee Suthikulpanit 2009-02-10 18:39:03 EST
I have posted the new SRPM and specfile here:

Spec URL:


In this revision, I have made several changes to comply with the Fedora Packaging Guideline.

# rpmlint ~/rpmbuild/SRPMS/CodeAnalyst-gui-2.8.38-0.fc10.src.rpm 
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

I am in the process of uploading the tarballs (CodeAnalyst-gui-2.8.38.tar.gz)and md5sum (CodeAnalyst-gui-2.8.38.md5), and licensing file onto the AMD Developer Central (as upstream code). I will notify once the action is complete.
Comment 5 Parag AN(पराग) 2009-02-12 05:52:04 EST
1)Avoid use of hash in spec file it looks complicated to me.
2)desktop file should be installed using desktop-file-install command
remove desktop-file-validate command lines in SPEC

3) .so files must go to separate -devel subpackage. See 

4) buildroot value not as per given at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingGuidelines#BuildRoot_tag

5) any reason to change tarball name from CodeAnalyst to 

6)You need to use any value from $RPM_OPT_FLAGS %{optflags} not both see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingGuidelines#Using_.25.7Bbuildroot.7D_and_.25.7Boptflags.7D_vs_.24RPM_BUILD_ROOT_and_.24RPM_OPT_FLAGS

7) When I fix above problems locally on my machine and built rpm, I used rpmlint on binary package where I see some messages related to init script reported as
rpmlint -iv /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/CodeAnalyst-gui-2.8.38-0.fc10.i386.rpm

CodeAnalyst-gui.i386: W: service-default-enabled /etc/rc.d/init.d/codeanalyst_init
===>The service is enabled by default after "chkconfig --add"; for security
reasons, most services should not be. Use "-" as the default runlevel in the
init script's "chkconfig:" line and/or remove the "Default-Start:" LSB keyword
to fix this if appropriate for this service.

CodeAnalyst-gui.i386: E: subsys-not-used /etc/rc.d/init.d/codeanalyst_init
===>While your daemon is running, you have to put a lock file in
/var/lock/subsys/. To see an example, look at this directory on your machine
and examine the corresponding init scripts.

CodeAnalyst-gui.i386: W: incoherent-init-script-name codeanalyst_init
==>The init script name should be the same as the package name in lower case, or
one with 'd' appended if it invokes a process by that name.

8)Every time you change in SPEC update Release to next number e.g. now you should change it to 1. Add changelog what you changed in SPEC for this -1 release
Then submit this new package for further review.
Comment 6 Suravee Suthikulpanit 2009-02-12 11:20:28 EST
Responding to Comment #5:

1) ### which were used to partition b/w different group of macro is now removed.

2) desktop-file-validate command has been removed

3) CodeAnalyst needs these .so files for running.  However, I will add the version for these shared library and clean up the installation.

4) The buildroot value is now fixed.

5) Generally, CodeAnalyst package (upstream) distributes not only the GUI, but also the modified-oprofile commandline tools and oprofile daemon.  Since the package here distributes only the GUI, the name is changed to communicate the difference.

6) We will be using only $RPM_OPT_FLAGS.

7) I will get back with the fix detail.

8) Bump the version due to changes in the CodeAnalyst and not just the packaging related changes.  From now on, I will keep the version number fixed until next version changes.

Thank you for your time.
Comment 7 Suravee Suthikulpanit 2009-02-12 15:24:02 EST
Responding to Comment #5

7) I have added the /var/lock/subsys/codeanalyst which is created after the service is started, and removed when stopped.  I also change the name of the service to "/etc/init.d/codeanalyst".

Regarding the warning "service-default-enabled", codeanalyst service requires root to start/stop.  Without the default runlevel information, non-root users cannot run the profile after the system is rebooted.  However, we do not attempt to start after the package installation or upgrade as stated in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/SysVInitScript#Why_don.27t_we....

Please let me know if this post a problem.

Comment 9 Suravee Suthikulpanit 2009-02-19 15:07:25 EST
I have posted the new SRPM and spec files here:

Spec URL:

(From a scratch build against fc11 on Koji http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1140372) 

rpmlint output:
# rpmlint CodeAnalyst-gui-2.8.38-2.fc11.src.rpm 
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 0 warnings.

# rpmlint CodeAnalyst-gui-2.8.38-2.fc11.x86_64.rpm 
CodeAnalyst-gui.x86_64: W: service-default-enabled /etc/rc.d/init.d/codeanalyst

CodeAnalyst-gui.x86_64: W: incoherent-init-script-name codeanalyst
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 3 warnings.

- The first two warnings is explained in "comment #5" above.
- The third warning complains about the naming of "/etc/rc.d/init.d/codeanalyst" script, and suggesting that it should be changed to "codeanalyst-gui" to match the package name.  However, I would like to keep this name as it does not make sense to name the script "codeanalyst-gui" to match the package name. This script is also used in the upstream CodeAnalyst distribution. The reason I name the package "CodeAnalyst-gui" is to differentiate the normal CodeAnalyst distribution which contains other components such as a modified version of Oprofile and the kernel modules.

- The upstream tarball is now available at (http://developer.amd.com/media/CALinuxSnapshot/CodeAnalyst-gui-2.8.38.tar.gz)

Thank you,

Comment 17 Suravee Suthikulpanit 2009-03-03 17:30:51 EST

Thank you for your time. I also found some useful tips in the Packaging Note on you wiki page.  One of them is using the $DESTDIR to specify the $RPM_BUILD_ROOT during installation.  Therefore, I am making some changes since this is much cleaner than the code in revision 3. I hope this would not interrupting your review.

- Using "%configure" macro instead of "./configure".
- Using DESTDIR variable instead of the $prefix and $libdir variable during installation. This requires adding the patch01 (ca-destdir.patch).
- Clean up the file.
Comment 18 Parag AN(पराग) 2009-03-04 04:22:22 EST
* When using "cp" or "install" commands, add "-p" option
  to keep timestamps on installed files:

* Any reason for not using service command to %preun?
 see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/SysVInitScripts#Initscripts_in_spec_file_scriptlets

* I see many files installed in /usr/share/codeanalyst/doc/cadoc
  how about creating new subpackage as given at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackagingGuidelines#Documentation
Comment 19 Suravee Suthikulpanit 2009-03-04 15:14:56 EST

I will make the changes as you recommend in the first two issues.  For the third issue, I realized that these are mainly for documentation. However, the GUI has the "File->Help" in the menubar, which opens these files. If we separate these files into a different package, it might me missing. Unless if we make the CodeAnalyst-gui package requires the CodeAnalyst-doc package(i.e. adding "Requires : CodeAnalyst-doc" for CodeAnalyst-gui). Would you feel comfortable with this?
Comment 20 Parag AN(पराग) 2009-03-04 21:15:34 EST
better not to separate doc files in -doc package then.

I will also suggest to change following line in SPEC
Comment 30 Suravee Suthikulpanit 2009-03-10 15:45:59 EDT
I have investigated the issue where CodeAnalyst cannot generate profiling result, or imported the result generated by oprofile. I am able to reproduce the problem with the following system set up:
- Fedora10 i686
- oprofile-0.9.4-3.fc10.i386 package.

This is due to a bug in opreport utility which failed to generate XML output. CodeAnalyst uses opreport to generate the XML output before importing it and parse the information.  Please see the bug 489588 for more information.

However, this should work on Fedora10 x86_64 distribution.

thanks this looks ok now. you need to wait till someone from cvs-admin group creates new cvs module for your package.

CodeAnalyst-gui-2.8.38-9.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
Comment 41 William Cohen 2009-03-17 10:22:57 EDT
Code Analyst currently only builds on x86 platforms and only supports AMD processors. This is overly restrictive. Both Fedora and OProfile supports a number of processors architectures. It would be very nice if the Code Analyst was a bit more flexible and would allow other developers to adapt it those processor architectures AMD doesn't support. At the very least should be able to fall back on the oprofile timer mechanism for unknown processors architectures.

There appears to be a few places with __asm__ code used to either read the timestamp counter or get the cpuid that would prevent the code from compiling on non-x86 processors.

$ find -type f -exec grep "__asm__" {} /dev/null \;|more
./src/ca/example/example.cpp:		__asm__ __volatile__ (
./src/ca/example/example.cpp:		__asm__ __volatile__ (
./src/ca/example/example.cpp:	__asm__ __volatile__ ( 	     
./src/ca/example/example.cpp:	__asm__ __volatile__ ( 	     
./src/ca/gui/auxil.cpp:	__asm__ __volatile__ (	     	     
./src/ca/libs/libca/xpwin.cpp:  __asm__ __volatile__ (	     
./src/ca/libs/libca/xpwin.cpp:	__asm__ __volatile__ (	    

These operations could be factored out and converted into defines located in an include file.

Is the cpuid being used for anything more complicated than just getting the model and family? Could most of this information be easily obtained from oprofile's /dev/oprofile/cpu_type or /proc/cpuinfo?
