Description Lubomir Rintel 2010-09-17 10:52:12 UTC
SPEC: http://v3.sk/~lkundrak/SPECS/libeio.spec
SRPM: http://v3.sk/~lkundrak/SRPMS/libeio-3.65-1.fc13.src.rpm


Libeio is a full-featured asynchronous I/O library for C, modelled in
similar style and spirit as libev. Features include: asynchronous read,
write, open, close, stat, unlink, fdatasync, mknod, readdir etc. (basically
the full POSIX API). sendfile (native on solaris, linux, hp-ux, freebsd,
emulated everywehere else), readahead (emulated where not available).

It is fully event-library agnostic and can easily be integrated into any
event-library (or used standalone, even in polling mode). It is very portable
and relies only on POSIX threads.

In particular these two messages regarding ldconfig indicating real issues - see my messages below.

+ The package is named according to the  Package Naming Guidelines .

+ The sources used to build the package matches the upstream source, as provided in the spec URL.
Sulaco ~/rpmbuild/BUILD: diff -ru libeio.orig/ libeio
Sulaco ~/rpmbuild/BUILD: 

+ The package  successfully compiles and builds into binary rpms on at least one primary architecture. See koji link(s) above.
+ All build dependencies are listed in BuildRequires.
0 No need to handle locales.

- Every binary RPM package (or subpackage) which stores shared library files (not just symlinks) in any of the dynamic linker's default paths, must call ldconfig in %post and %postun. 

+ Packages does NOT bundle copies of system libraries.
0 The package is not designed to be relocatable.
+ The package owns all directories that it creates.
+ The package does not list a file more than once in the spec file's %files listings.
+ Permissions on files are set properly.
+ The package consistently uses macros.
+ The package contains code, or permissible content.
0 No extremely large documentation files.
+ Anything, the package includes as %doc, does not affect the runtime of the application.
+ Header files are in a -devel package.
+ No static libraries packaged.
+ The library files that end in .so (without suffix) stored in a -devel package.
+ The devel packages requires the base package using a fully versioned dependency: Requires: %{name} = %{version}-%{release}
+ The package does NOT contain any .la libtool archives.
0 Not a GUI application
+ The package does not own files or directories already owned by other packages.
+ All filenames in rpm packages are valid UTF-8.

So, please, fix ldconfig issue and I;ll continue.
