Recent activity from @mandian. I believe I see new mate packages in contrib testing repo. Wondering if they are also being built for Cooker/Lx4?


Yes, I am refreshing MATE packages in parallel both in 3.0 (version 1.18, the same as in my personal repo) and Cooker (version 1.20). But I have’t finished yet.

Good job !

Good to know, currently task-mate in Lx 3 looks like it installs a mix of 1.14 and 1.18 packages.

It is because I updated all SPECs on github but I haven’t finished to build packages on ABF yet.

@TPG I got an issue with %rename macro in building packages on cooker. Maybe it is only an extra space, please could you take a look at this?

@tpg it works , thanks. However the behaviour of %rename macro is not intuitive:

$ rpm --eval "%rename"

Obsoletes:	%{1} <  
Provides:	%{1} = 

It is like it takes only one argument:

$ rpm --eval "%rename foo"

Obsoletes:	foo <  
Provides:	foo = 

instead it can take two:

$ rpm --eval "%rename foo bar"

Obsoletes:	foo < bar 
Provides:	foo = bar

so without the = it may work (not tested). :thinking:.

%rename macro just uses %{EVRD} from spec file.
For example
Name: foo
Epoch: 2
Version: 1
Release: 0.1
%rename bar

Above %rename will produce:
Obsoletes: bar < 2:1-0.1
Provides: bar = 2:1-0.1
