Description Brendan Jones 2012-02-08 21:49:01 UTC
clalsadrv is a C++ driver for ALSA (Linux Audio).

This package has existed in planetCCRMA for quite some time, but is a dependency of a number of packages that will eventually find their home in Fedora Audio (such as aeolus synth, an organ synthesizer, jaaa and japa, audio analysers for JACK).

SRPM: http://bsjones.fedorapeople.org/clalsadrv-2.0.0-2.fc16.src.rpm
SPEC: http://bsjones.fedorapeople.org/clalsadrv.spec

Koji scratch build for Rawhide:


Comment 3 Peter Lemenkov 2012-02-16 10:44:13 UTC
One issue I found so far - you should use "ln -s" instead of simple "ln" which creates hardlinks instead of softlinks. See the latest line in the %install section.


Legend: + = PASSED, - = FAILED, 0 = Not Applicable

+/- rpmlint is not silent. However I think in this case his messages can be omitted safely:

sulaco ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES: 

+ The package successfully compiles and builds into binary rpms on at least one primary architecture. See koji link above.
+ All build dependencies are listed in BuildRequires.
0 No need to handle locales.
+ The package stores shared library files in some of the dynamic linker's default paths, and it calls ldconfig in %post and %postun.
+ The package 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.
0 The package DOESN'T have a %clean section, so it won't build cleanly on systems with old rpm (EL-4 and EL-5, not sure about EL-6). Beware.
+ 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 stored in a -devel package.
0 No static libraries.
0 No pkgconfig(.pc) files.
+ The library file(s) that end in .so (without suffix) is(are) stored in a -devel package.
+ The -devel package requires the base package using a fully versioned dependency: Requires: %{name}%{?_isa} = %{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.
+ At the beginning of %install, the package runs rm -rf %{buildroot} (or $RPM_BUILD_ROOT).
+ All filenames in rpm packages are valid UTF-8.

So, please, adjust "License" field and fix linking issue in the %install section before uploading. This package is
