Description Mikhael Goikhman 2001-10-13 13:19:05 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:


Comment 1 Mikhael Goikhman 2001-10-13 14:01:10 EDT
More notes.

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.
