Description Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-09-25 19:49:52 UTC
Spec URL:

"Alien::wxWidgets" can be used to detect and get configuration
settings from an installed wxWidgets.

A requirement for perl-PPI-Tester
(perl-Alien-wxWidgets -> perl-Wx -> perl-PPI-Tester)

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2006-09-26 02:15:36 UTC
The build does complain about many libraries (which seem to be wxwidgets
components) not being found but this seems to have no effect on that resulting

* source files match upstream:
   6975385d6e4d4d58c5d589c2a7077d23  Alien-wxWidgets-0.21.tar.gz
* package meets naming and packaging guidelines.
* specfile is properly named, is cleanly written and uses macros consistently.
* dist tag is present.
* build root is correct.
* license field matches the actual license.
* license is open source-compatible.  License text not included upstream.
* latest version is being packaged.
* BuildRequires are proper.
* %clean is present.
* package builds in mock (development, x86_64).
* package installs properly
* rpmlint is silent.
* final provides and requires are sane:
   perl(Alien::wxWidgets) = 0.21
   perl-Alien-wxWidgets = 0.21-1.fc6
* %check is present and all tests pass:
   All tests successful.
   Files=2, Tests=17,  0 wallclock secs ( 0.11 cusr +  0.06 csys =  0.17 CPU)
* owns the directories it creates.
* doesn't own any directories it shouldn't.
* no duplicates in %files.
* file permissions are appropriate.
* no scriptlets present.
* code, not content.
* documentation is small, so no -docs subpackage is necessary.
* %docs are not necessary for the proper functioning of the package.


Comment 2 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-09-28 12:48:00 UTC
Why perl-Wx fails to find perl-Alien-wxWidgets

This package is strange: it installs itself in arched directories even though
not one of its files is binary (I forced the perl_vendorarch in the %files
section when I first started packaging this in the past and forgot it). 

The current package (tagged as noarch) in the repos has the following content:
$ rpm -qpl extras/5/i386/perl-Alien-wxWidgets-0.21-1.fc5.noarch.rpm

Dropping the line

   BuildArch:      noarch

from the specfile solves the problem but rpmlint will start complaining

   $ rpmlint perl-Alien-wxWidgets-0.21-2.i386.rpm
   E: perl-Alien-wxWidgets no-binary 

Comment 3 Jose Pedro Oliveira 2006-09-28 18:40:26 UTC
New release build for FC-5 and devel.
