Programming / Re: Help on RPM installer

I found on a webpage that they suggest:

%if "%{noclean}" == ""
   rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT

I will check it out.

like you never use rm -rf $RPM_BUILD_ROOT in the install section
%clean does that for you anyway
then you don't have to copy files which you reference later on with %doc or %license, as those %doc or %license copy them to the right location anyway.
look at the macros and then you see what they do.

Hi Silvan.
Can you point me to a spec sample on how to use %clean?

Thanks, I made it work with the %{_localstatedir}.
Maybe, doing it by the book" the score files should be at "/var/games/DiggerReloaded/digger.sco". (this is how I did it on this case)

The nice things is that setting the working directory also as "/var/games/DiggerReloaded/" allows the program to create the INI file on that directory too.(while it uses the .sco file).

It seems to work this way. I still have many doubts on how to put some stuff on the /home/ directory with RPM, but maybe with more practice I will understand.


It is an interesting news, check it out:

But don't let the size fool you: This sucker has the computing power of the x86 chip from 1990. Okay, so that's not great compared to what we have today, but cut it some slack — you need a microscope to see it.

So, can it run OS/2?  :D :D



I have no idea how to fix that yet.  Some people says it is the Joomla Cache, or it may be the JFusion plugins that connects Joomla-MediaWiki and SMF forum.

Any tips are welcome.

Talking about icons I just modified this ones for the "System Setup" since I like to have them matching.  It seems that the trick is to have the icon on 40x40 and the 20x20 for the detail view.

I need some reference of the syntax that the specs uses to name some of the FHS directories.
I found some here, but no Home references:

But I still haven't found what to put on "%files" for the .sco file to be included in the package. Even if home it is not the right place to locate that file, I still do not know how to include it on the package. What should I use like "%{_bindir}/*.exe" to include the sco file ?

I'm sorry. I had removed Andreas comment and I'm in the process of banning him permanently of OS2World. Sorry but he just don't understand this is a moderated forum and not his home. The first 6 days ban expired and he just came back to rant more and more instead of cool off and move on.

Sorry, but he offers no help to this forum with this "know it all / I'm always right attitude" he may be welcome on other OS/2 communities but not here. His free of speech can be tolerated on his own personal page.

Hi Dave

What about the stuff at "%files" ?? Any idea how do I reference the digger.sco file? I have no idea what to put there.

I'm going forward making some more RPM installers. I'm doing one for Digger Reloaded.

Everything was going fine until I need to put a file (digger.sco - the score files) on the /home/ directory.

mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/bin
mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/doc/%{name}-%{version}
mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/licenses/%{name}-%{version}
mkdir -p $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/home/.config/%{name}
cp -p *.exe $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/bin
cp -p digger.txt $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/doc/%{name}-%{version}
cp -p readme.txt $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/doc/%{name}-%{version}
cp -p copyright.txt $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/usr/share/licenses/%{name}-%{version}
cp -p digger.sco $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/@unixroot/home/.config/%{name}

%doc digger.txt readme.txt
%license copyright.txt

I have no idea what to put on %files so the RPM can grab digger.sco inside the RPM package.  (That is where I have the ???????)

Help is welcome.

Hi again Dan.

It can be something like this:

You can put your installation tips/tricks on the wiki page (Same user and password of this forum).

If you provide the pci.exe report we can give more details of the components that are working.

Hi Dan.

In my case I had been using the OS2World Wiki to document working hardware for OS/2, eComStation and ArcaOS.

I know that a wiki it is not a database, but it is something very easy to update and collaborative.

It can be interesting if you post the PCI.exe report of the HP Pavilion s3720y to also document it.

There are some other place, but I prefer the OS2World wiki because it is more collaborative and I use a license where the information can be shared.
There is also:
- eComStation RU Hardware Database.

Nobody wants to pay for a web browser that cannot print or lacks all the usual features.
That is wrong, there are people that have already donated for the Qt5, so that kills the "nobody" part of your statement.
Also "usual features". Maybe "usual features" for Andreas is not "usual feature" for the rest of the world. Are you spreading fake news / miss information /unproven /untrue statements too ??

We had already the failed Opera 5 for OS/2.
So what? It failed, why bring that now?

Andreas, this reply, in my personal opinon,  just show that you are starting to loose arguments and just rant. If you don't like Qt5, a new browser and you like to surf the web with Netscape and Webexplorer (because you were the only one ranting about having OS2World with SSL), just go ahead. If you have a better idea for an OS/2 project create your own thread and motivate people to support it.

My personal suggestion to Andreas is to cool off.

Andreas, you got banned for 3 days for accusing people that they intentionally spread "unproven and untrue statements". I also deleted that post because it was useless. I'm extending the ban for 3 additional days for Andreas to cool off.

You rant about everything, you offer not solution, just rant. You even rant about the topic/name of the forum. If you personal opinion is just rant, people will just start to ignore you and that is worst that getting banned.

You enjoy too much correcting people by telling them that they spreading misinformation or fake news.  That is not true, people don't want to spread miss information, they just have some miss conception and people correct them politely, not accusing them. You don't have to always have to the final word, please behave and understand that people have a personal opinion and you are not the owner of the universal truth.

Please notice that there are also people that complain about your attitude in private messages to me. 
Andreas. I'm banning your for three day again until you relax and this time I'm also banning your IP.

Andreas, you, and your negative attitude is welcome to move on.

Hi Sigurd

I agree with your idea and encourage you to keep going !!

My wishlist on this topic will be to have more information from bww bitwise. I think it will motivate more the community to chip in if bitwise will announce the "kickstart" of the Qt5 port. For example if Roderick transfer the initial raised funds from OS2VOICE so Bitwise can start the port, and have periodically news about the progress and the missing funds to continue with the port. I think that more information from bitwise will motivate more people to support the project.
