Description: Block device settings tool

Comment 1 Jeff Garzik 2006-04-04 16:24:13 UTC
Similar to "ethtool" package, found in Fedora Core.  By the same author (me) as
ethtool, too.

Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2006-04-04 19:29:33 UTC

rpmlint complains:

E: blktool zero-length /usr/share/doc/blktool-4/ChangeLog

This can be ignored.

The _sbindir macro is redefined, this is OK, however it should be probably later
used instead of the plain /sbin.

There is missing BuildRequires: glib2-devel

Comment 3 Jeff Garzik 2006-04-04 19:49:03 UTC
Updated to remove empty ChangeLog and add BuildRequires.

_sbindir thing is just aping what evolution has wrought in blktool's sister
package, Fedora Core ethtool.  No idea why, but its important that both of these
packages behave in a similar manner.

Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2006-04-05 08:02:08 UTC
About the _sbindir - I didn't say that it shouldn't be redefined but that
%{_sbindir} should be used instead of /sbin in the %install and %files sections
probably. But I don't insist on that.

Also probably the INSTALL file should be also removed from %doc because there
are only the generic installation instructions.

However these two above are only nitpicks so I leave it on you if you want to
fix them.
