[21:52:49] <vividos> 'evening
[21:53:16] <wjp> hi
[21:54:28] <vividos> I commited an initial manpage for uwadv
[21:57:40] <vividos> heya, exult release :)
[21:58:04] <wjp> :-)
[21:58:17] <wjp> yup :-)
[21:58:54] <vividos> what variable do I need for the "shared" path in the uwadv.6.in?
[21:59:06] <wjp> hm?
[21:59:11] <wjp> who? where?
[21:59:47] <wjp> oh, there
[21:59:50] <vividos> :)
[22:00:09] <vividos> I wanted to mention some paths in the man page
[22:01:15] <wjp> right, let me look it up
[22:02:20] * wjp hmms
[22:02:30] <vividos> ah, just found the man page mini howto :)
[22:02:31] <wjp> there's @datadir@, but that's /usr/share
[22:02:43] <wjp> @UADATAPATH@ looks good
[22:03:06] <vividos> does it get replaced? then ok
[22:03:23] <wjp> I'm looking at config.status at the actual replace commands now
[22:03:40] <wjp> does DOCSFOLDER exist?
[22:04:09] <vividos> no, but I don't know if we can install some text files in a /usr/docs/uwadv/ -like folder (I wanted to ask you that first :)
[22:04:29] <wjp> it'll be /usr/share/doc/uwadv, but yeah
[22:05:06] <vividos> could you change that accordingly, or can you tell me which @var@ to use?
[22:05:16] <wjp> although I don't quite know how automake would do that
[22:05:21] <vividos> and we should add some files to the install target / rpm
[22:05:26] <wjp> rpm seems to do it manually
[22:05:48] <wjp> do you want make install to install files, or only the rpm?
[22:05:51] <wjp> s/files/doc files/
[22:06:32] <vividos> both would be good, but the people only installing rpm's would need it more
[22:09:13] <wjp> automake doesn't seem to support it
[22:09:31] <wjp> that doesn't make it impossible of course, since you install files to custom dirs
[22:09:48] <vividos> installing documents? hmm. we probably could omit it
[22:10:16] <wjp> packaging them in an .rpm is trivial, anyway
[22:12:50] <vividos> ok. then please add sources/linux/ua-lowercase-all.pl, the processed uwadv.1, docs/README.uwadv.txt (if not already) and docs/uw1-keyboard.txt
[22:13:05] <vividos> hmm, should we have a man page for ua-lowercase-all.pl, too?
[22:13:07] <wjp> .6?
[22:13:16] <vividos> .6 = games :)
[22:13:22] <wjp> yes, I know :-)
[22:13:23] <vividos> http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/mini/Man-Page.html (if you're interested)
[22:13:24] <wjp> you said .1 :-)
[22:13:29] <vividos> oh sorry :)
[22:13:39] <vividos> I tried around with a local uwadv.1 first
[22:20:54] <wjp> currently packaged files:
[22:21:22] <wjp> /usr/share/doc/uwadv: Copying, ChangeLog, docs/Authors.txt, docs/README.uwadv.txt, source/linux/ua-lowercase-all.pl, docs/uw1-keyboard.txt
[22:21:35] <wjp> /usr/bin: uwadv
[22:22:00] <wjp> /usr/share/games/uwadv: uwadv.cfg, uadata00.uar
[22:22:07] <wjp> /usr/share/man/man6: uwadv.6.gz
[22:22:25] <vividos> hmm, should we not copy the perl script to a bin dir?
[22:22:39] <wjp> yeah, probably
[22:22:53] <vividos> ok, I try to write a man page for that one also :)
[22:26:45] <vividos> I'm a bit away
[22:26:50] --- vividos is now known as vividos|away
[22:41:02] <wjp> ok, fixed the make dist, fixed the .spec and added those files
[22:41:19] <wjp> I have to go
[22:41:20] <wjp> g'night
[22:41:30] <-- wjp has left IRC ("Zzzz...")
