(UPDATE: THERE ARE BINARY AND SOURCE RPMS FOR FEDORA CORE 9, SUSE 11.0 AND MANDRIVA 2008.1 SPRING IN FOLLOWING POSTS)

Hi

I have done the test on Mandrivalinux 2008.1 x86_64 and i586.

Before release a complete rpm source package on sourceforge.net (not binary), I would like to know if you successfully compiled, installed Ultimate++ on your favourite rpm Linux distribution?

Here you can find instructions: http://www.ultimatepp.org/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=3722& amp; amp; amp; amp;start=0&

But is faster to read on here

Many thanks Very Happy

Thank you for the effort invested in making a rpm. I proposed once to make a rpm package, but somehow people never got back to me regarding it, so I never got to it and I just install deb under rpm based distros.

But those instructions are far too complicated. Couldn't you upload somewhere a beta rpm so that people can test it without those manual steps? And would you be willing to create binary rpms also? Sorry to bother you with such silly requests Smile.

Some kind of script?

Problem: Mandriva use urpmi. Redhat use yum. Suse use something else I think. I haven't find a way to download files automatically from U++ forum.
Here are instructions without comments for advanced users (replace urpmi by yum, ...):

# su
# urpmi rpm-build freetype2-devel gtk2-devel pango-devel atk-devel cairo-devel X11-devel xft2-devel expat-devel
# exit

# cat > ~/.rpmrc << EOF
buildarchtranslate: i386: i586
buildarchtranslate: i486: i586
buildarchtranslate: i586: i586
buildarchtranslate: i686: i586
EOF

# cat > ~/.rpmmacros << EOF
%_topdir $HOME/rpm
%_tmppath $HOME/rpm/tmp
%distribution Linux
%vendor Ultimate++ team
%packager YourName YourLastName <youremail@provider.loc>
EOF

# mkdir -p ~/rpm/{BUILD,RPMS/{i586,x86_64,noarch},SOURCES,SRPMS,SPECS,t mp}

# cd ~/rpm/SOURCE/
# wget -N http://dfn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/upp/upp-src-2008.1 .tar.gz


Download and save the tarball you will find at the end of this message. Then uncompress it with this command:

# tar zxvf rpmscript_and_fix.tar.gz -C ~/


That's all. To create the source and binary rpm packages:

# rpmbuild -ba ~/rpm/SPEC/upp.spec


Simple enough? Sad

It's simple for all to have all files in one rpm package like we have on Debian and Ubuntu all files in deb packages.

Of course. But the rpm is too big and the forum won't load it.
I have no ftp server to upload on.
The contract is: "Please don't upload the src.rpm before someone tell you it works on other rpm based Linux distro"

Well, I think if you do not have any FTP at hand (surprising Wink, you can release it in "upp-development" on sf.net.

Ok. Found one. Simpler.

Download upp-2008.1-1.src.rpm from here: http://dl.free.fr/jdy1GSwDF

Then create your rpmbuild environment:

# cat > ~/.rpmrc << EOF
buildarchtranslate: i386: i586
buildarchtranslate: i486: i586
buildarchtranslate: i586: i586
buildarchtranslate: i686: i586
EOF

# cat > ~/.rpmmacros << EOF
%_topdir $HOME/rpm
%_tmppath $HOME/rpm/tmp
%distribution Linux
%vendor Ultimate++ team
%packager YourName YourLastName <youremail@provider.loc>
EOF


For next command, please, remove the space between for tmp (shouldn't be "t mp}" but when I "Apply message changes" the space is back again:

# mkdir -p ~/rpm/{BUILD,RPMS/{i586,x86_64,noarch},SOURCES,SRPMS,SPECS,t mp}


Now, build the rpm source file:

# rpmbuild --rebuild upp-2008.1-1.src.rpm

I tried to install under openSuse 11 and I got:
warning: user camrein does not exist - using root
warning: group camrein does not exist - using root

Also:
X11-devel is needed by upp-2008.1-1.i586
xft2-devel is needed by upp-2008.1-1.i586
expat-devel is needed by upp-2008.1-1.i586

X11-devel is xorg-x11-devel and expat is libexpat-devel.

Unfortunately, the old problem with Linux (and rpm) not providing a stable and reliable environment for software distribution and detection shows it's ugly head.

I don't think that it is possible to create a cross distro rpm. Only if you strip out all dependencies. Or create a rpm for each distro, which would be an extremely tedious and may I day cruel task.

Yes. When you install a src.rpm, rpm always show this. It's because cpio try to keep the login:group of the original packager.

X11-devel is xorg-x11-devel and expat is libexpat-devel.




Please, can you show me the output of this 2 commands:

# rpm -q --provides xorg-x11-devel
# rpm -q --provides libexpat-devel

If they give me what I want, your distro as mine will works out of the box with the src.rpm.

Me too, I don't understand why they don't talk to each other to have an unique name for each "--provides".
At least, rpm show us the name to search for.

Next, the rpm build. Did it works out of the box?

(many thanks for your previous post)

Thanks. I can use XFree86-devel and libexpat-devel. Both are in Mandriva. Btw, it's a pity because this is no more XFree86 and libexpat-devel could be lib64expat-devel on 64 bit system.

Fortunately, Mandriva has added those provides in their rpm for fedora compatibility.

This could be considered as a bug. Your distro packager are not following the redhat rpm naming policy.

Well. On your distro, when you install rpmbuild, they don't install patch. My goodness. The patch program applies diff files to originals. This is the well know standard tool from GNU. Most every src.rpm need it for rpm building. You should file a bug report. No doubt about it.

I guess you are using an unstable release.

# yum install patch

Should be enough.

Note: if you type "rpm -i upp-src-2008.1.rpm", you will have ~/rpm/SPEC/upp.spec installed and source+patches in ~/rpm/SOURCE. You can edit upp.spec to see what's going on.

You are running rpmbuild as root. You shouldn't. Normal user is what is recommended.

Tell me which distro you are using. I will fix this directly in a virtual machine and see what kind of problem this distrib has with this package.

I would like also to see the rpm script: /root/rpm/tmp/rpm-tmp.59065. Can you upload it here? Lets fix it.

I'm stupid. rpm doesn't find %make in your distro.
Please, edit ~/rpm/SPEC/upp.spec, change the dependencies you want and replace %make with make then:

# rpmbuild -bb ~/rpm/SPEC/upp.spec
(ndrl: command fixed, thank cbpporter)

If you have the same problem than with patch, then install make.

OK, I replaced %make with make (what does %make mean?), and he two dependencies, and deleted xft2-devel as a dependency (it seems my distro includes it in x11 devel package).

Build went pretty well, expect that it lasted an incredibly long time. I could have built about 10% of a kernel in that time Smile.

There are still some small problems. Rpmbuild tries to copy files to %{buildroot}, but it actually takes it verbatim and files wind up in "~/rpm/BUILd/upp-2008.1/%{buildroot}". I believe that it should have replaced %{buildroot} with something. Must set it up somewhere.

I also got a:
Processing files: upp-2008.1-1
error: File not found: /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/theide.png

Shouldn't it be working with local build files instead of with my systems /usr content?

PS:
rpm -bb ~/rpm/SPEC/upp.spec

is actually
rpmbuild -bb ~/rpm/SPECS/upp.spec

for those who want to try the build process also.

PS2: What is wrong with the png? It shows up OK.

I installed Fedora 9 and OpenSuse 11.0 for testing.

I already tested Fedora and Mandriva.

The problem with %{buildroot}: in Mandriva, they already set it for you and their developers removed its definition into their .spec files. On Fedora, you need to include it.

The problem with the png: the one from the U++ tarball is a bad png. Perhaps because of svn when it was imported (not in binary form). Their is a good theide.png in the src.rpm and the rpm script use it instead.

(UPDATED WITH LAST RPMS, THEY WORKS)

Ok, here are the rpms. They are also now on sourceforge.net too.

RPM binary Release to use (those rpms will be there for 30 days if no one download them):

Fedora 9 i386 rpm: http://dl.free.fr/p3MvNQeEE
(install with yum install --nogpgcheck upp-2008.1-1.fc9.i386.rpm)

Mandriva 2008.1 i586 rpm: http://dl.free.fr/qS3GEy9wv

OpenSuse 11.0 i586 rpm: http://dl.free.fr/qTueoO3N8

Mandriva + Fedora + OpenSuse source rpm: http://dl.free.fr/jdy1GSwDF


Build dependencies if you want to build the source rpm yourself:
(because you are running a Linux 64 bit distro or want to test...)

First, create the rpmbuild environment (see 8th post) then, before building the binary with "rpmbuild --rebuild upp-2008.1-1.src.rpm" with your user account you need to become root and type":


Mandriva 2008.1: # urpmi rpm-build gcc gcc-c++ gtk2-devel pango-devel atk-devel cairo-devel expat-devel X11-devel freetype2-devel

Fedora 9: # yum install rpm-build gcc gcc-c++ gtk2-devel pango-devel atk-devel cairo-devel expat-devel xorg-x11-server-devel freetype-devel

OpenSuse 11.0: # YaST -i patch make gcc gcc-c++ gtk2-devel pango-devel atk-devel cairo-devel libexpat-devel xorg-x11-devel freetype2-devel

I installed the opensuse rpm on two machines, one of them beeing "clean" and I worked. U++ also behaves correctly after install.

There are some issues though.
1. In YaST, the License field for the rpm states "BSD-like, GPL-2.1, LGPL". That's a little much, is it not?
2. Distribution is empty and Vendor is "Mandriva".
3. It does not display anything in the "Install (Available)" column.
4. Clicking on "File List" crashes the program.

U++ include external components using those license. If I write BSD-like only, then people won't know about GPL and LGPL code inside.

2. Distribution is empty and Vendor is "Mandriva".



Yes! Thank you.
Will fix it.

Not: "rpm -qi upp" show all information correctly. "rpm -ql upp" too.

I just need to remove Mandrivalinux.

Quote:


3. It does not display anything in the "Install (Available)" column.



Because upp is not part of the default OpenSuse repository (I mean, on their website). The install tool only show what is available in their repository.

With OpenSuse, the two way I found to install an external rpm are:

- with command line ("Yast -i" or "rpm -i").
- with YaST install/remove tool. But only if the rpm distributor have made a repository specially for OpenSuse. You then need to add first this repository.

There's also perhaps another way, because I saw a few page on the web with a special "click me" button for quick rpm installation. Something like " click me and I will install this package X from this website " but just for Suse distro.

Quote:


4. Clicking on "File List" crashes the program.



It works here without problem.
I think you should update your distro with last bug fix.
Options for update (like MS Win update) are in YaST. Mine was buggy even before I tried U++ then I've got the updates and no problem since.
