1 Hi All,
3 There are a number of packages that require us extracting directly from
4 RPMs or Source RPMs. As a result, a number of ebuilds depend on
5 rpm2targz (a slackware creation) for extraction and have their own
6 src_unpack routine.
8 To automate the process a little better, I've written an rpm.eclass
9 which is a slot in replacement for src_unpack(). It automatically
10 extracts rpm packages and for source rpms, it also extracts inner
11 tarballs. Internally, it still uses rpm2targz but is a little smarter
12 about cleaning up after itself and handles multiple sources properly.
14 This is now in portage. For an example of how it can used, look at
15 app-misc/jot or x11-themes/redhat-artwork.
17 Cheers,
