Description Thomas Sailer 2009-02-17 08:20:44 EST
Spec URL: http://sailer.fedorapeople.org/mingw32-wpcap.spec
SRPM URL: http://sailer.fedorapeople.org/mingw32-wpcap-4.1.beta5-1.fc10.src.rpm
MinGW Windows pcap library. This is a port of libpcap to windows. pcap implements user-level network packet capture.

Approved MinGW packaging guidelines are here:
Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-02-17 09:13:58 EST
At an initial brief look over the spec file, it looks to be
packaged sanely.  I'm super-busy this week, but if I get some
time I may be able to review.
Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-03-24 09:00:43 EDT
Taking for review ...
Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-03-25 06:41:30 EDT
Koji scratch build FAILED:
This is because the BR should be dos2unix, not unix2dos.

Koji scratch build with updated BR:

Auto-buildrequires OK.

rpmlint says:
mingw32-wpcap.noarch: W: no-documentation

The license file should be included in %doc.

mingw32-wpcap.noarch: E: arch-independent-package-contains-binary-or-object /usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libwpcap.a
mingw32-wpcap.noarch: E: arch-independent-package-contains-binary-or-object /usr/i686-pc-mingw32/sys-root/mingw/lib/libpacket.a

These are implibs, so they should be renamed / installed as

Please fix the above and I'll get round to a formal review.
Comment 4 Thomas Sailer 2009-03-25 07:04:27 EDT
Thanks a lot for taking the review and the initial comments!

The fixed spec/srpm is here:

Scratch build still ongoing, but local compile is ok.
