Description: Fatsort is a utility written in C to sort FAT16 and FAT32 filesystems. It is needed to sort files on cheap mp3 players that display files not sorted by their name but by their entry in the file allocation table.

I forgot to mention that I this is my first package and I need a sponsor. By 
the way, a review should be very simple, since this is a small package, it 
builds fast in mock and rpmlint does not complain about anything.

Builds fine on devel x86_64, anyone have a FAT partition they want to mess up, I
mean, test with this? ;)

Comment 5 Till Maas 2006-07-28 12:54:22 UTC
Spec URL:

I use $RPM_OPT_FLAGS instead of %{optflags} now.

Using mount -o loop and mkfs.vfat you can make a FAT partition in an file to
test this.

Comment 6 John Mahowald 2006-08-17 19:51:49 UTC
