A quick question... I'm packaging gedit-latex-plugin which could pretty
much be a 'noarch' file, but this option brings some problems...

While in x86_64 the plugin directory is /usr/lib64/gedit-2/plugins, in
x86 it is /usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins.

I've packaged it using %{_libdir} macro so that the path and install of
the files is correctly done, though it brings out a RPMLint error (see
bellow). What is adviced on this cases?

RPMLINT report:
gedit-latex-plugin.x86_64: W: no-binary
The package should be of the noarch architecture because it doesn't
any binaries.

You can add a gedit-latex-plugin-rpmlintrc as Source to your package and make
it contain addFilter("no-binary") with a comment that the plugin directory is
arch specific.

Greetings, Stephan
