RE: Mock and CMS


Thanks for sharing. I was using a dummy.spec from a internal SVN repo used for internal training and indeed the spec was written in a kinky way.
I've added JRuby sources + spec to a new svn entry and tried to rebuild it with mock, it worked out just fine on a RHEL5.

I've got a few more tests to conduct, but I'll take a deeper look into mock later on. Thanks for helping.

Melhores cumprimentos,

the tarball creation uses the Version defined in the spec file:


However, if your spec file contains some complex defines and macros
which you then use for Version the spec parser might perhaps get
confused. It's best that you first try just with Version: 1.0.1 and then
see how the parser copes with defines and macros if you need them.

I'm not aware of any related blog posts but this LWN article provides a
generic introduction:
