New fvwm2 rpm is bad
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
I am speaking about the new fvwm2 rpm:
Here is a list of problems with it:
* datadir is missing (FvwmForm-*, FvwmScript-* and more)
* fvwm2/fvwm/ directory duplication may be avoided and there are
2 solutions, one is not to use fvwm2 prefix dir at all and
another is to specify --disable-package-subdirs
The biggest problem is that this rpm is not compatible with the
official fvwm-themes rpm. The solution is to package fvwm-themes
together with fvwm (or if you insist on that name, fvwm2).
Some links about the official fvwm and fvwm-themes rpms:
This rpm is built without support for libstroke so a nice feature is missing
(issue commands and start programs by drawing figures using a mouse).
On the other hand, there is a support for gnome-libs that is only used in
FvwmGtk module. FvwmGtk may be built as GTK+ application or GNOME application.
It is up to you to decide whether to require GNOME to be installed just for
one FVWM module or not.
It's fixed in 2.4.3-2. You find it in next rawhide release.
