Description jim 2006-01-06 02:13:58 UTC
SRPM Name or Url:
Description: Metisse is an experimental X desktop with some OpenGL capacity.  It
consists of a virtual X server called Xwnc, a special version of FVWM,
and a FVWM module FvwmAmetista. Xwnc is a mix of Xvnc and XDarwin. It
draws nothing on your screen; everything is drawn into
pixmaps. Similarly to Xvnc, but with a different protocol, Xwnc can
send these pixmaps (and other information) to a "viewer". FvwmAmetista
is such a viewer; it uses OpenGL for rendering the X desktop into a
window of a "regular" 3D accelerated X server.

There are 2 dependant rpms required to run metisse 
nucleo & wm-icons

Comment 1 Luya Tshimbalanga 2006-01-06 08:21:57 UTC
Spec file looks good. However SRPMS file should not have "FC4" since %{?dist}
already does the versionning. That also applied for both nucleo and wm-icons.

Comment 2 jim 2006-01-06 10:24:26 UTC
Added "Finalzone" to the CC for e-mail.

Comment 3 Luya Tshimbalanga 2006-01-06 19:41:10 UTC
At this line:
"Release		: 2.FC4%{?dist}"
Remove FC4 line since "%{?dist} already handle the release version (fc3, fc4, fc5).

Comment 6 jim 2006-01-11 22:17:07 UTC
this belongs with Bug 177081 

Sorry about the confusion 

Comment 7 Christopher Stone 2006-04-20 15:24:36 UTC
I might be interested in taking this package over.  I need atleast the client
(xwnc part).  I have a spec file already for xwnc, although ideally we would
want metisse and possibly metisse-xwnc.  But this might be difficult to package
and I may need some help.  I do have a xwnc only package that I need to get in
soon though for a game I am packaging.

Comment 8 Christopher Stone 2006-06-05 03:47:56 UTC
I have created a new spec/srpm for this package and would like to take over

The new package has been submitted for review under bug #194027
