Description Yannik Stadelmaier 2009-03-24 19:49:18 EDT
Spec URL: http://freeki.de/fedora/cfourcc.spec
SRPM URL: http://freeki.de/fedora/cfourcc-0.1.2-1.fc10.src.rpm
Description: With cfourcc you could change the FOURCC of an MPEG4 or DIVX video on the command line.

The Problem with this programm is, that it only uses make install (wich includes the build-process) instead of make && make install.

i think you shall use 'GPVv2+' as license based on the the header in the source file.

Amazing, how broken even trivial Makefiles can be ;)

a) Compilation doesn't acknowledge RPM_OPT_FLAGS.
Normally, this can be achieved by overriding the Makefile's CFLAGS:
make %{?_smp_mflags} CFLAGS="${RPM_OPT_FLAGS}"

However, provided the brokenness of the Makefile, and the simplicity of this package (one single c-file), I am inclined to recommend not to use the Makefile at all, but to compile the file directly:
%{__cc} $RPM_OPT_FLAGS -o cfourcc cfourcc.c

b) When having changed compilation to using $RPM_OPT_FLAGS, the compiling the package trips over bugs inside of the sources.

This breakdown needs patching.

c) rpmlint complains:
cfourcc.x86_64: W: summary-ended-with-dot Change the FOURCC of an MPEG4 or DivX video.
cfourcc.x86_64: E: description-line-too-long With cfourcc you could change the FOURCC of an MPEG4 or DIVX video on the command line.

cfourcc.spec Version 2

Here is the new cfourcc.spec

I changed the description (just added a line break) and included the patch.

Here you can find the new srpm:
