Re: LedgerSMB rpm spec


I will look at this if nobody gets to it first.

As for the list being a quite place, this is just a quite time.  It
will pick up again :-)

Best Wishes,

I have tried to create a draft of an rpm spec. Please test and review!

Quick howto: Having /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/ledger-smb-1.1.1d.tar.gz run
"rpmbuild -ba ledger-smb.spec" and "rpm -ihv
/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/noarch/ledger-smb-1.1.1d-1.noarch.rpm" and "rpm -qi

One topic to discuss is what the name of rpm should be. That mostly
boils down to: What is the name of the project? LedgerSMB? Ledger-SMB?


Summary: LedgerSMB - Open Source accounting software

LedgerSMB is a double-entry accounting system written in perl.
LedgerSMB is a fork of sql-ledger.

SELinux should be disabled to use this RPM.

To finalize the installation:

Start PostgreSQL, let /var/lib/pgsql/data/pg_hba.conf start with
local   all         postgres                          ident sameuser
local   all         all                               md5
and restart PostgreSQL

Create databaseuser, create database and initialize it
su - postgres -c "createuser -d ledger-smb --no-createdb --no-createrole --no-superuser -P"
(remember the password!)
su - postgres -c "createdb ledger-smb"
su - postgres -c "createlang plpgsql ledger-smb"

Delete the "password" in %{_localstatedir}/lib/%{name}/users/members and
browse http://localhost/ledger-smb/admin.pl and set a ledger-smb master password.
In "Pg Database Administration" the "User" defaults to the database user "ledger-smb"
we just created - specify the password and "Create Dataset".
Set "Create Dataset" to the database "ledger-smb" we just created and continue.
In "Add User" specify the Dataset, User and password again for each user.

%setup -q -n ledger-smb
