Re: Trying to build tightvnc for FC10 from FC11 src.rpm

Well I got the src.rpm for fc11, and after running rpmbuild, I found a
number of dependencies I needed.  I installed those and tried again and not
too supprisingly the rebuild failed.

First it is telling me that both user and group mockbuild do not exist and
it is using root.

Is this a problem?  I am running from userid:  me


After these warnings, I get an Executing(%prep) and a number of info
messages, then after a line about 'patching file configure.ac' I get:

Hunk #1 FAILED at 29.
Hunk #2 succeeded at 53 (offset 2 lines).
Hunk #3 succeeded at 1213 (offset 10 lines).
Hunk #4 FAILED at 1892.

2 out of 2 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file mi/miinitext.c.rej
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.lr6xIj (%prep)

So what do I do to get this working?


Start by looking at the spec file here:
   patch -p1 --fuzz=0 < ../xserver16.patch
xserver 1.6 aint out for F10 so do:
   patch -p1 --fuzz=2 < ../xserver15.patch
The other patches should apply clean, investigate those that dont then rebase.

Someone just pointed out to me that the FC11 rpm for the TightVNC viewer installs with no problem on FC10, no need to rebuild it! So that is one problem solved, and I will leave well enough alone, other than how do we get it into 'general availablity' for Rawhide FC10?

Now I have to see about the server. The FC11 rpm has dependencies that are stopping it from installing on FC10, so I will have to try and rebuild that....
