Description Daniel Drake 2009-07-15 12:40:47 EDT
Spec URL: http://dev.laptop.org/~dsd/20090715/dracut-modules-olpc.spec
SRPM URL: http://dev.laptop.org/~dsd/20090715/olpc-bootanim-2.7-1.fc11.src.rpm

This new package is a dracut module which implements OLPC-specific technologies, including our "versioned layout" filesystem and initramfs-level antitheft security. A couple more modules will be added in the near future.

We'd like to include this in Fedora 11.

rpmlint produces 2 bogus non-executable-script warnings -- in this case, the scripts are not meant to be executable until dracut puts them in the initramfs.
Comment 1 Daniel Drake 2009-07-15 12:41:25 EDT
sorry, SRPM URL is http://dev.laptop.org/~dsd/20090715/dracut-modules-olpc-0.2.1-1.fc11.src.rpm
Comment 2 Peter Robinson 2009-07-15 18:11:31 EDT
I'll take this one. Some initial comments.

Source URL isn't correct. It should be:


Build root isn't the usual one. Something like the following is suggested.

BuildRoot:      %{_tmppath}/%{name}-%{version}-%{release}-root-%(%{__id_u} -n)

It also doesn't build in koji. I think it needs pyrex.
Comment 3 Peter Robinson 2009-07-15 18:22:48 EDT
A full review. The only thing blocking is the build in koji and the few minor bits mentioned above.

Another small one is you can use %{_datadir} instead of %{_prefix}/share/ in the files section.

+ rpmlint output
