Description Scott Baker 2006-08-28 16:33:19 UTC
Built rpms on 3 FC5 boxes all come up clean. rpmlint is happy on both the SRPM and the binary rpm.


Spec URL:


Description: QComicBook is a viewer for comic book archives: rar, cbr,
zip, cbz, ace, cba,tar.gz, cbg, tar.bz2, cbb. QComicBook
aims at convenience and simplicity. Features include:
automatic decompression, full-screen mode, two pages mode,
japanese mode, thumbnails view, page scaling and rotating,
page preloading and caching, mouse or keyboard navigation,
bookmarks etc.

QComicBook requires zip/unzip, rar/unrar, tar with
gzip+bzip2 support and unace to handle archives.

Comment 1 Brian Pepple 2006-08-28 16:58:45 UTC
This package can't require unrar, since it is not allowed into FE.

Comment 2 Scott Baker 2006-08-28 17:13:09 UTC
Good catch... Updated and reposted.

Comment 3 Brian Pepple 2006-08-28 17:28:19 UTC
Couple of quick items (note this is not an official review):

1. Desktop file is not handled correctly.  Refer to
2. In the build section you should use 'make %{?_smp_mflags}' instead of '%{__make}'
3. The Requires on qt & imlib2 are unnecessary since the sonames on the devel
packages will pull these in.
4. You should use 'rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT' instead of '[ "$RPM_BUILD_ROOT" !=
"/" ] && rm -rf "$RPM_BUILD_ROOT"' in your spec.

Comment 4 Scott Baker 2006-08-28 17:51:04 UTC
Updated the package with the comments in #3. rpmlint is clean on the SRPM and
the binary RPM.

Comment 5 John Mahowald 2006-08-30 22:59:09 UTC
Don't set BuildArch.  The build system builds on i386 not i686, so it won't
build with mock. Not only that, but this breaks other architectures like x86_64
and ppc.

If you must force it to build on certain arches only use ExclusiveArch. I don't
think this will be necessary.

Comment 6 Parag AN(पराग) 2006-08-31 11:41:16 UTC
packaging looks ok.
+ Mockbuild is successfull for i386 FC6
+ rpmlint on binary rpm is silent
+ dist tag is present
+ Buildroot is correct
+ source URL is correct
+ BR is correct
+ License used is GPL
+ License file COPYING is included
+ Desktop file is handled correctly
+ MD5 sum on tarball is matching upstream tarball
ab191878d0694c77c4e5dd1d22f3d14c  qcomicbook-0.3.2.tar.gz
+ No duplicate files

Comment 7 Scott Baker 2006-08-31 16:54:50 UTC
I removed the buildarch and created a new release.

Spec URL:

Comment 8 John Mahowald 2006-09-02 19:25:08 UTC
+ Built and run on fc5 x86_64. Also built on fc6 x86_64.
+ Sucessfully extracted .tar.gz,, and .zip files.
+ I agree with comment 6

- It does not appear in my Gnome menus for some reason.

Comment 9 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-09-03 14:02:59 UTC
Well, this pachage (-0.3.2-5) fails to be rebuilt in mock
on 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5smp with leaving the logs:

Correct, 'make %{?_smp_mflags}' should be used instead of '%{?_smp_mflags}'

Comment 11 Scott Baker 2006-09-03 17:59:49 UTC
Oh good catch. Updated spec and package:


Comment 12 John Mahowald 2006-09-08 03:54:42 UTC
+ Comment 8 still applies.
+ file permissions good
+ proper macros
+ follows naming guidelines
+ rpmlint clean

For readability consider removing the unused commented out lines.


Comment 13 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-09-11 16:12:46 UTC
Hello, John. Did you accept to sponsor Scott?
This is in fact NEEDSPONSOR issue. See bug 199780.

Comment 14 John Mahowald 2006-09-11 18:18:57 UTC
Yes I am sponsoring. Apply for cvsextras.

I still highly recommend removing the commented out lines for readibility,
however. Without syntax highlighting it is difficult to see what lines are
evaluated and which are not.

Comment 15 Scott Baker 2006-09-12 20:30:18 UTC
I applied for CVS extras. What's next?

Please follow :

Comment 17 Scott Baker 2006-09-13 15:20:49 UTC
I applied for cvsextras (or so I thought). I tried to do it again today and I
get an error:

'Add' action denied. You may need to become a member of the cla_done group
first. I'm "in progress" in the cla_done group. I don't even know what that is.

Comment 18 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-09-15 04:55:32 UTC
Well, I cannot see qcomicbook on buildsys or mirror server yet.
What is happening?
