These are files required during runtime by the game engine, not C
sources! How can I disable this rpmlint check?

Adding the file rpmlintrc with the following content

# This line is mandatory to access the configuration functions
from Config import *
addFilter("freedink-data devel-file-in-non-devel-package")

Try something like:
# files required during runtime by the game engine, they are not C sources

Great. Works fine. :-)

- not the package name is the first arg - it's the rpmlint-check name.
- use .* between the tag and other args (just if for example the badness
score is changing)
- restrict the filter to the files you've checked that they should ignored
(don't use something like addFilter("devel-file-in-non-devel-package")
which will also work
- add a comment to your filter and explain why it is needed

Thanks for explanation. I used an example, which apparently no longer
works - or never worked at all (rpmlintrc in ati-fglrxG01). :-(
