SlackBuild submission error: PRGNAM is ambiguous


Hello

On trying to submit my first SlackBuild:
Code:
PRGNAM is ambiguous.
There was something wrong with your .info file. It needs to be in the correct format.
Please check the file and try again.
Here's the contents of yad-0.5.2.info:
Code:
PRGNAM="yad"
VERSION="0.5.2"
HOMEPAGE="http://code.google.com/p/yad/"
DOWNLOAD="http://code.google.com/p/yad/downloads/detail?name=yad-0.5.2.tar.xz&can=2&q="
MD5SUM="184c6476a79c6f456ca1f7f18127aa83"
DOWNLOAD_x86_64=""
MD5SUM_x86_64=""

Any ideas?

Best

Try renaming it yad.info. That is the correct format, but I'm not sure that this is the error that an incorrect name would produce.

Thanks but I originally had it as yad.info and got error "Could not find /tmp/www/yad-0.5.2/yad-0.5.2.info".

I think
- the file you submit should be yad.tar.gz
- the folder that you tar czf should be named yad
- the name of the slackbuild should be yad.SlackBuild
- the name of the info file should be yad.info

without the $VERSION: that should be a variable defined in the yad.SlackBuild and in the yad.info file, but should be possible also to override it at build time passing VERSION=1.2.3 to the SlackBuild when launching it.

When you submit the Slackbuild, the .tar.gz file shouldn't contain the version number. You will submit yad.tar.gz with the following files in it:
Code:
README
yad.SlackBuild
yad.info
slack-desc
I'm guessing if you submitted yad-0.5.2.tar.gz, the Slackbuild website understood the version number to be part of the program name.

Ponce beat me to it! I hate that!

You should also change the download link to
http://yad.googlecode.com/files/yad-0.5.2.tar.xz

That's tidier; unfortunately I overlooked this suggestion when changing the build and submitting. A corrected re-submission is not allowed. Have mailed the mailing list.

Thanks to all for suggestions and for being patient with my failure to understand simple instructions or inspect samples. It's very nice -- a warm feeling -- to have such excellent support from our worldwide community

Success:
Code:
Thank you, your SlackBuild archive was successfully uploaded and is pending approval.
Slightly in my own defence I was basing the yad-0.5.2.tar.gz name on SlackBuilds thunar-archive-plugin-0.2.4.tar.bz2 and xarchiver-0.5.2.tar.bz2, erroneously thinking they were more helpful names, especially as there is a bugfix in this build so it cannot be re-used simply by running with a different $VERSION.
