Description Srinivas Pandruvada 2013-06-14 19:06:22 EDT
Spec URL: http://spandruvada.fedorapeople.org/thermal_daemon.spec
SRPM URL: http://spandruvada.fedorapeople.org/thermal_daemon-1.02-1.fc19.src.rpm 
koji_build_results: http://spandruvada.fedorapeople.org/koji_build_results

Description: Thermal Daemon is a Linux daemon for monitoring and controlling platform temperatures. Once the system temperature reaches a certain threshold, the Linux daemon activates various cooling methods to try to cool the system. 

More details can be obtained from:

It operates in two modes:
Daemon acts to cool the system under the following two modes :
1. Zero Configuration Mode
2. User defined configuration mode

1. Zero Configuration Mode
For most users, this should be enough to bring the CPU temperature of the system under control. This uses DTS temperature sensor and uses Intel P state driver,
Power clamp driver, Running Average Power Limit control and cpufreq as cooling methods.
2. User defined configuration mode
This allows ACPI style configuration in a thermal XML configuration file. This can be used to fix the buggy ACPI configuration or fine tune by adding more sensors and cooling devices.
This is a first step in implementing a close loop thermal control in user mode and can be enhanced based on community feedback and suggestions.

This is my first package and seeking a sponsorship.

Comment 2 Marcelo Barbosa "firemanxbr" 2013-06-15 00:26:58 EDT
I'm not officially Fedora packager yet, here my informal review:

1) Remove "BuildRequires:  gcc-c++", this not require this it essential part for minimum build system.
2) Will your package build from EPEL5 ?
if no, remove "%defattr(-,root,root)" in %files, this option only EPEL5.

3) Adjust your %changelog in format like:
"* Wed May 8 2013 Base version 1.0-1"
To something like:
"* Wed May 8 2013 Srinivas Pandruvada <srinivas.pandruvada@linux.intel.com> 1.0-1
- Initial package"

In next adjusts increment your release this package, example 1.0-2.

Best regards.

Hello Srinivas,

   Your release is much better for this last version, but necessary see this it:


1) Sources used to build the package match the upstream source, as provided in
  the spec URL.

  Note: Upstream MD5sum check error, diff is in

Comment 10 Srinivas Pandruvada 2013-06-19 18:38:10 EDT
Hi Marcelo,

I have uploaded new spec file and source rpm. I did a diff -r on the tar file from what is generated and what is obtained from gitweb. There is no difference, but checksum doesn't match.

I see at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:SourceURL?rd=Packaging/SourceURL a comment:
Keep in mind that github tarballs are generated on-demand, so their modification dates will vary and cause checksum tests to fail. Reviewers will need to use diff -r to verify the tarballs.

Also added documentation field in the systemd service file.

Comment 11 Christopher Meng 2013-06-19 20:13:36 EDT
Some suggestions:

1. In %build section,

prefix=/usr, please change it to %{_prefix}

2. In %install section, 

Please remove "rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT"

3. And, please replace $RPM_BUILD_ROOT by %{buildroot}
Comment 12 Srinivas Pandruvada 2013-06-20 12:08:02 EDT
Thanks. Did the suggested changed and submitted new spec file source rpm.
Let me know if there are any other suggestions.

Hi Marcelo,

Spec URL: http://spandruvada.fedorapeople.org/thermal_daemon.spec
SRPM URL: http://spandruvada.fedorapeople.org/thermal_daemon-1.02-4.fc19.src.rpm

I didn't understand "post in commentary". I see you are firing some build from bugzilla, how do you do that?

I can't attach Koji results as it will not work behind our firewall at work.

Thanks for your patience.

Comment 15 Marcelo Barbosa "firemanxbr" 2013-06-20 13:42:20 EDT

   You execute new changes in your .spec file, do you have generate your packages again:

   $ rpmlint -bs .spec.file

   $ rpmlint -ba .spec.file

   Look this error again:

Checking: thermal_daemon-1.02-4.fc18.x86_64.rpm
thermal_daemon.x86_64: W: only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 0 errors, 1 warnings.

Rpmlint (installed packages)
# rpmlint thermal_daemon
thermal_daemon.x86_64: E: explicit-lib-dependency libxml2
thermal_daemon.x86_64: W: only-non-binary-in-usr-lib
1 packages and 0 specfiles checked; 1 errors, 1 warnings.
# echo 'rpmlint-done:'

   Look this output cacater "E" = ERROR, but "W" = WARNING, in this package your "W" is false positive.

PS: Other commentary this output from fedora-review tool.

Hi Marcelo,
I did regenerate and upload. I don't see this error. This is what I did to test the uploaded SRPM:
- Emptied my ~/rpmbuild sub-folder contents. So no RPM or SPEC file, tar files exists
- wget http://spandruvada.fedorapeople.org/thermal_daemon-1.02-4.fc19.src.rpm
- rpm -ivh thermal_daemon-1.02-4.fc19.src.rpm
- This installed source in ~/rpmbuild/SOURCES and spec file in ~/rpmbuild/SPECS
- rpmbuild -bb /home/spandruvada/rpmbuild/SPECS/thermal_daemon.spec
- It generated thermal_daemon-1.02-4.fc19.x86_64.rpm and 
- rpm -qa | grep thermal ,  shows the installed package
-  rpmlint /home/spandruvada/rpmbuild/SPECS/thermal_daemon.spec thermal_daemon-1.02-4.fc19.src.rpm

Comment 18 Srinivas Pandruvada 2013-06-21 11:33:20 EDT
Hi Marcelo,
What is the failure "[!]: %check is present and all tests pass." means?

Comment 19 Srinivas Pandruvada 2013-06-21 11:44:20 EDT
For the package naming guidlines:

- Common Character Set for Package Naming : Meets this requirment

When naming a package, the name should match the upstream tarball or project: Meets this requirment

When naming packages for Fedora, the maintainer must use the dash '-' as the delimiter for name parts. The maintainer must NOT use an underscore '_', a plus '+', or a period '.' as a delimiter. Version numbers used in compat libraries do not need to omit the dot '.' or change it into a dash '-':

This seems to be issue. The problem is that if remove underscore here, then it will not match the upstream tar ball name. What can be done about this?

Thanks for your help and patience.

Comment 20 Christopher Meng 2013-06-21 14:45:22 EDT
IMO If I package this program,  I'll name it to thermals. 

And I found the service file is also named thermald.

Underscore is bad, yes. 

So just change them, and define a new macro like:

%global pkgname thermal_daemon 

Then use this new macro in SourceURL and other places.
Comment 21 Marcelo Barbosa "firemanxbr" 2013-06-21 15:50:13 EDT

   Besides the name also confer the other problem(%check) your source have dir "/test" but your spec file no.

Hi Marcelo,

Good job! But, you can not assigned this package. Only a sponsor can do formal review.
Comment 24 Srinivas Pandruvada 2013-06-24 11:48:59 EDT
David Woodhouse (dwmw2@infradead.org) is willing to sponsor me. So I will update spec and srpm files after I pass all fedora-review tests.

Thanks to Marcelo and Christopher to spend time and help me to learn submission process.

Comment 28 Eric Griffith 2015-02-11 14:56:23 EST
Hey guys, im tempted to try and take over / reviving packaging of thermal_daemon. It'd be my first attempt at packaging though so would anyone be willing to be kind of be my guide in the matter?
Comment 29 Srinivas Pandruvada 2015-02-11 16:08:43 EST
Eric Griffith : Feel free to take over.
Comment 30 Eric Griffith 2015-02-13 14:38:49 EST
Question for anyone keeping an eye on this. Srinivas I've got your spec file on hand as a reference but I've got a bit of a general question that I'd love to have answered beyond just this one .spec file. 

Currently it says:

Source0:        https://github.com/01org/thermal_daemon/archive/v%{version}.tar.gz

But when I do "rpmbuild -ba thermal_daemon.spec" (following Fedora Documentation http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora_Draft_Documentation/0.1/html/RPM_Guide/index.html ) then rpmbuild complains about:

error: File /home/egriffith/rpmbuild/SOURCES/v1.30.tar.gz: No such file or directory

presumably because its just looking at "v%{version}.tar.gz". What is the appropriate fix here? The upstream source is in fact:

https://github.com/01org/thermal_daemon/archive/v%{version}.tar.gz (in this case v1.30.tar.gz) 

but the download link gives you "thermal_daemon-1.3.tar.gz" which is in my SOURCES directory. So do I rename thermal_daemon-1.3.tar.gz to be "v1.30.tar.gz" or do I modify "Source0" to not be 100% faithful to the actual URL? Or is there an override I can use to specify that the downloaded files have a different name than the upstream source URL?

New spec file, please review.

Disclaimer: First time writing a spec file, tried to follow all available guidelines. This builds, installs and works fine so i know this isn't broken just want to make it accurate as per guidelines & assumptions.  

A handful of questions in regards to the spec file format: 

1) rpmlint complains about source0 not being a valid URL, but it rpmbuild can't find the source if I have it correct... see my above post in regards to that situation. 

2) %build section. The original spec file had 'autoreconf' the compilation instructions had ./autogen.sh. Which is the correct one to use? Current spec uses autogen.sh

3) Is a "BuildRequires: systemd" necessary or is it just redundant? 

4) Can someone link or explain the Requires(post)/(preun)/(postun), same with %post, %preun, %postun

5) %files does every single file need to be listed here or just 'important ones? I left out /usr/share/src, /usr/lib and a couple others.

6) Upstream name is "thermal_daemon" but I see it packaged elsewhere as "thermald" and the binary / .service is thermald. Preference goes to...?

Someone needs to be maintainer who can gets a sponsor or already a maintainer.

I tried 2 and half years back, but I can't be maintainer for this package for Fedora anymore because of my schedule.

So anybody wants to own it, please feel free to take over.

I'm surprised that nobody want to take care of this package because it's a fairly important one.
Comment 36 jeremy9856 2017-06-25 05:20:26 EDT
Well, it seem someone took care of it :)
I guess that can be closed now.

Thanks !
