Well, apart from some diagnostics and funky characters spewed out
near the end of the checkinstall output, this seems to work and
produces an installable RPM. ...


The garbage kicked out by checkinstall seems to be to do with "tar
-f" somehwere in the script, i have to go hunting it later. When it
scrambles your screen type in blind echo -ne "\017" to make it
sane again.



Yes, I'm aware of shift-out and shift-in. I usually think of them as ^N and ^O, resp. and can type in the requisite echo command without feedback. Fortunately, that did not happen this time.


I copied over checkinstall from my Mandrake 10.1 box where you don't get the problem on .tgz files, but it still does it, so something aint what it used to be, may be I'll have to do "strace checkinstall" on a small app.

Here it looks OK, I just opened a random directory. reminder, I built
sqlite-3.2.1 from source, and built kat without libpoppler.



Doesn't omitting poppler make Kat blind to PDF files?


Using the filter *.* it sees pdf files.

I shall rebuild with libpoppler, I guess I'm misunderstanding how and what kat does.

Sid.
