Description Jindrich Novy 2010-06-02 06:14:14 EDT
Spec URL: http://jnovy.fedorapeople.org/pxz/pxz.spec
SRPM URL: http://jnovy.fedorapeople.org/pxz/pxz-4.999.9-0.1.beta.20100602git.fc13.src.rpm
Parallel XZ is a compression utility that takes advantage of running
XZ compression simultaneously on different parts of an input file on
multiple cores and processors. This significantly speeds up compression time.

rpmlint output:
pxz.x86_64: W: incoherent-version-in-changelog 4.999.9-0.1.20100526.beta ['4.999.9-0.1.beta.20100602git.fc13', '4.999.9-0.1.beta.20100602git']
pxz.x86_64: W: no-manual-page-for-binary pxz
pxz-debuginfo.x86_64: E: debuginfo-without-sources
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 1 errors, 2 warnings.

The error is caused by optflags not being used:

gcc -Wall -Wshadow -Wcast-align -Winline -Wextra -Wmissing-noreturn  -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -DPXZ_BUILD_DATE=\"`date +%Y%m%d`\" -DPXZ_VERSION=\"4.999.9beta\" -O2 -fopenmp -llzma pxz.c -o pxz

 export CFLAGS="%{optflags}"
and it works.

However, I recommend patching out
 CFLAGS+=-O2 -fopenmp
from the makefile, and using
 export CFLAGS="%{optflags} -fopenmp"

The man page warning can be omitted. Although, I see you are also upstream, so I'd recommend you create a man page.

Thanks! All of the mentioned fixes should be addressed now.

Comment 4 Susi Lehtola 2010-06-03 14:49:18 EDT
This is a package review, not a merge review ;)

$ rpmlint pxz-*
pxz.x86_64: W: incoherent-version-in-changelog 4.999.9-0.1.20100603.beta ['4.999.9-0.1.beta.20100603git.fc13', '4.999.9-0.1.beta.20100603git']
3 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 1 warnings.

so the change log EVR entries should be of the style

- I abhor wildcards where they are not needed. Please change

- Please change URL to
as that's a *lot* easier to paste from the spec file.

Otherwise, my earlier comments seem to have been taken into account. One final comment: now the compilation does not use the "-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE" flags. Are these not necessary on Fedora?

The final changes are cosmetic, so you can consider this package

New Package CVS Request
Package Name: pxz
Short Description: Parallel LZMA compressor using XZ
Owners: jnovy
Branches: F-12 F-13 EL-6 
Comment 6 Kevin Fenzi 2010-06-07 17:08:23 EDT
CVS done (by process-cvs-requests.py).

Can you fix the summary to say pxz, and not PXZ? 
It causes a warning from our tools.
Comment 7 Jindrich Novy 2010-06-08 01:30:01 EDT
Done, thanks.
Comment 8 Jindrich Novy 2010-06-08 04:32:34 EDT
