Description Bastien Nocera 2005-11-10 19:12:22 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
Driftnet is a program which listens to network traffic and picks out images from
TCP streams it observes. Fun to run on a host which sees lots of web traffic.

Comment 1 Adrian Reber 2005-11-11 15:07:54 UTC
I will attach a patch for the spec file because it had just to many differences
with the packaging guidelines to list them all here.

Comment 2 Adrian Reber 2005-11-11 15:11:51 UTC
Created attachment 120944 [details]
spec patch

The changes are:
- added URL
- added full URL for source0
- changed buildroot
- added requires %{_bindir}/consolehelper
- fixed description (< 80 characters)
- %setup -q
- honour RPM_OPT_FLAGS
- parallel build
- use of macros instead of hardcoded paths
- added clean section

Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2005-11-11 15:55:39 UTC
That was pretty gross indeed. I should really have checked the spec file before
putting it there ;)
Thanks Adrian.

Comment 4 Adrian Reber 2005-11-14 07:59:41 UTC
- builds in mock
- source matches upstream
- spec looks good
- additional sources and patch look good
- clean installation and removal

Not approving yet as following makes me nervous, especially as this is running
as root:

/builddir/build/BUILD/driftnet-0.1.6/driftnet.c:588: warning: the use of
`tmpnam' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'

Comment 5 Michael A. Peters 2005-11-14 08:16:33 UTC

That's a gentoo patch for the tmpnam issue.

Comment 6 Bastien Nocera 2005-11-14 11:13:05 UTC
Yay for the gentoo patch which doesn't clean up after itself...

Comment 7 Bastien Nocera 2005-12-13 16:57:25 UTC
The mkdtemp in the gentoo patch didn't prefix the template with the user's tempdir.

Updated packages:

Adrian, do you want me to fix more compilation warnings with that, or?

Comment 8 Adrian Reber 2005-12-13 19:40:52 UTC
* rpmlint is almost happy:
W: driftnet conffile-without-noreplace-flag /etc/security/console.apps/driftnet
W: driftnet no-dependency-on usermode-consoleonly
(can be ignored from my point of view)
* clean installation and removal
* builds in "mock -r fedora-development-i386-core"
* source matches upstream
* spec looks good (almost; see below)
* patches look sane



using "auth       include      system-auth" instead of "auth       required service=system-auth" like other applications from rawhide would be
a good idea.

The other warnings are not nice but at least they do not say that it is a
security risk to use them. If you like you can of course fix more warnings :-)

One more fix would be necessary before you upload it. There is a rm -rf in %prep
this should be moved to the beginning of %install.

Comment 9 Christian Iseli 2006-03-28 15:22:25 UTC
Any particular reason why this package is not yet imported and built ?
