rpmbuild - giving the devel it's share


HI LQers,

as LPI 2 is creeping up I'm messing around with rpmbuild. As there are nice howtos and book on the subject the first package was a brezze but now I'm working on subpackages and wonder which files should go into the a development package. Maybe someone with good understanding of compilation skills can shed some light on this.

Heres my setup right now
Code:
Name: libmcrypt
Summary: new improved version of crypt library
Version: 2.5.7
SOURCE: libmcrypt-2.5.7.tar.gz
License: GPL
Release: 2
Group: support
URL: ftp://mcrypt.hellug.gr/pub/crypto/mcrypt/libmcrypt
BuildRoot: /home/user/downloads/libmcrypt_build
%description
        Improved version of crypt library. Supports a dozen of encrpytions

%package devel
Summary: New Improved Version of the Crypt Library. Develepoers version
Group: development
%description devel

%prep
%setup -q

%build
%configure
#make

%install
%makeinstall

%files
%defattr(755,root,root)
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.so.4
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.so.4.4.7

%files devel
/usr/include/mcrypt.h
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.so
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.la
/usr/bin/libmcrypt-config
/usr/share/aclocal/libmcrypt.m4
%doc /usr/share/man/man3/mcrypt.3.gz
Code:
$ rpm -qlp ./libmcrypt-2.5.7-2.x86_64.rpm
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.so.4
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.so.4.4.7
Code:
$ rpm -qlp ./libmcrypt-devel-2.5.7-2.x86_64.rpm
/usr/bin/libmcrypt-config
/usr/include/mcrypt.h
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.la
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.so
/usr/share/aclocal/libmcrypt.m4
/usr/share/man/man3/mcrypt.3.gz
I just borrowed this file splitting from libgcrypt on RH4 but am not sure what the libmcryt.la files about.....

I'd be happy about any input

Usually the only files that go into devel are files you need to compile against the package. This is usually the C header files.

Think of it like this

the main package is everything you need to run the program. This can include docs and shared libs. You can also put the docs and libs in there own rpms.

The devel rpm is the header files and anything you would need to build against the package. You should not need to install the devel unless you are compiling against the rpm.

In your example I would think just the /usr/include/mcrypt.h
file would go into devel.

Thanks for your input Andrew. I made my had around and switch the

/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.la
/usr/lib64/libmcrypt.so

files into the normal package. The rest remains in the devel.
