Description Simone Caronni 2012-05-09 18:12:48 UTC
Spec URL: http://slaanesh.fedorapeople.org/shellinabox.spec
SRPM URL: http://slaanesh.fedorapeople.org/shellinabox-2.14-1.fc17.src.rpm
Shell In A Box implements a web server that can export arbitrary command line
tools to a web based terminal emulator. This emulator is accessible to any
JavaScript and CSS enabled web browser and does not require any additional
browser plugins.

************* Note:

This package is a new request for an already existing stuck request; as has been suggested I'm creating a new one as I ask to be the mantainer:


The package is brand new and not a rework of the previous one.

Comment 1 Simone Caronni 2012-05-09 18:28:33 UTC
Small changes to make sure it also builds on RHEL/CentOS 5 beside Fedora 15/16/17 and RHEL/CentOS 6.

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

+ rpmlint is not completely silent:

sulaco ~/rpmbuild/SPECS: rpmlint ../RPMS/ppc/shellinabox-* ../SRPMS/shellinabox-2.14-2.fc18.src.rpm 
shellinabox.ppc: W: incoherent-version-in-changelog 2.14-1 ['2.14-2.fc18', '2.14-2']

^^^ please adjust your top-level %changelog section to match the package's actual EVR.

shellinabox.ppc: W: only-non-binary-in-usr-lib

^^^ bogus message.

shellinabox.src:19: W: mixed-use-of-spaces-and-tabs (spaces: line 1, tab: line 19)

^^^ cosmetic / easyfix. Not a blocker (but I advise you to fix it anyway)

shellinabox.src: W: invalid-url Source0: http://shellinabox.googlecode.com/files/shellinabox-2.14.tar.gz HTTP Error 404: Not Found
