Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 828455
rpmdev-newspec should use %make_install
Last modified: 2012-09-17 19:49:51 EDT
Description of problem:
The default template uses the expanded definition instead of %make_install. Details at https://fedorahosted.org/fpc/ticket/183. You can wait till the draft is approved before making this change if you prefer.
I don't think changing to use that would be an improvement at the moment. The vast majority of Fedora packages use the expanded definition anyway, and starting to use the macro would create an unnecessary incompatibility with rpm < 4.8.0 (EPEL 5).
I think you should change the template based on which os it is being run from. This also applies to %clean etc for example.
Not based on that, but based on what -r/--rpm-version is set to. Since we do have this feature after all, done upstream:
Thank you so much.
Note that the comment is wrong. you are using %make_install and not %makeinstall.
