Personal Fedora bookmarks

Spec file tricks for copy-and-paste

  • To convert a file from some encoding to UTF-8
iconv --from=ISO-8859-1 --to=UTF-8 file.txt > file.txt.new
  • To remove DOS line endings from a file in-place
sed -i 's/\r//' file.txt
  • Give a desktop icon a transparent background and convert to png
BuildRequires: ImageMagick
...
convert -transparent black njamicon.ico %{name}.png
  • Preserve the timestamp on a patched autotools source file to prevent unnecessary triggering of autoconf/automake/etc.
touch -r configure.ac configure.ac.stamp
%patch0 -p0
touch -r configure.ac.stamp configure.ac
  •  %pre/%post scripts for managing an init.d script
%pre
user_uid=<code>id -u crossfire 2>/dev/null</code>
if [ x"$user_uid" = x ]  ; then
%{_sbindir}/fedora-useradd  27 -r -s /sbin/nologin \
-d %{_datadir}/%{name} -M -c 'Crossfire Server' \
crossfire >/dev/null || :
fi

%post
/sbin/chkconfig --add crossfire

%preun
if [ "$1" -le "0" ] ; then
/sbin/service crossfire stop > /dev/null 2>&1
/sbin/chkconfig --del crossfire
fi

%postun
if [ "$1" -ge "1" ] ; then
/sbin/service crossfire condrestart >/dev/null 2>&1
fi
  • spec file header for defining tcl package directories
%{!?tcl_sitearch: %define tcl_sitearch %{_libdir}/tcl%(echo 'puts $tcl_version' | tclsh)}
%{!?tcl_sitelib: %define tcl_sitelib %{_datadir}/tcl%(echo 'puts $tcl_version' | tclsh)}
