Description Rex Dieter 2006-04-09 17:36:54 UTC
Spec Name or Url:
SRPM Name or Url:
GLib is a handy library of utility functions. This C library is
designed to solve some portability problems and provide other useful
functionality which most programs require.

GLib is used by GDK, GTK+ and many applications.  You should install
th glib package because many of your applications will depend on this

Removed from devel/fc6 Core, intended for (fc6 only) Extras.

* Thu Apr 06 2006 Rex Dieter <rexdieter[AT]> 1:1.2.10-19
- cleanup for Extras
- -devel: Requires: pkgconfig

Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2006-04-11 20:05:42 UTC
* rpmlint messages needing action:
  E: glib non-utf8-spec-file glib.spec
  --> use eg. iconv to convert it (from iso-8859-1, I guess)
  W: glib unstripped-binary-or-object /usr/lib64/
  --> executable bits missing
* %description (the last sentence) could be updated considering that glib 1.x is
  legacy stuff, "will depend" is a bit bold a statement nowadays :)
* "|| :" at end of %check is superfluous

I chose to keep the %check ||:, since this is a legacy pkg afterall, and it
certainly doesn't hurt anything.

Sorry for the delay, I don't remember seeing bugmails about the progress made
here.  1.2.10-20 looks good, approved.

(Even though glib is legacy stuff, this particular package probably won't ever
enter < FC6, so the "|| :" is indeed very much superfluous...)
