Fixed to correctly include IKVM.GNU.Classpath

Comment 3 Rowan Kerr 2006-02-03 23:31:54 UTC
Builds and installs OK. (On fc5t2 upgraded to today's rawhide).

Comment 4 Michel Alexandre Salim 2006-03-05 08:31:24 UTC
The summary seems to refer to MonoDevelop: "A full-featured IDE for Mono and Gtk
sharp" ?

Patch file for ikvm launch scripts

Patches script files to use the proper libdir for the architecture

Comment 8 Michel Alexandre Salim 2006-03-06 21:59:40 UTC
I've uploaded some changes to the spec file. Do you know if upstream plans to
release with Unix-style build scripts? Might be worth upgrading if so.

Otherwise, I'll do a full review once you've checked the changes.

Comment 9 Paul F. Johnson 2006-03-06 22:06:54 UTC
Thanks. Currently, the plan is to update to 0.24 *sometime* in March, but no
date as yet. I'll commit the patches, rebuild, upload and reply here.

Comment 11 Michel Alexandre Salim 2006-03-08 16:05:41 UTC
Package review:
* rpmlint: clean
* Package name, specfile, license meet guidelines. License files included
* Packaging legible, spec in American English
* Source matches upstream
* Package successfully compiles on x86_64 (Paul's tried i386, I believe?)
* Build dependencies OK
* Package owns its directories
* No duplicate files

Tested on simple Java programs and worked OK.


Comment 12 Paul F. Johnson 2006-03-08 16:07:59 UTC
Tried on both x86 and x86_64 prior to submission

Comment 13 Christian Iseli 2006-04-08 20:52:38 UTC
