I am trying to build this module (L*C*h color selector) and it failed.

What do I need altering in the spec file so it will build ?

The last attempted build looked like this:

+ exec rpmbuild -ba --define '_srcdefattr (-,root,root)' --define 'jobs 4'
--define 'disturl
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.fEh2ze
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/packages/BUILD
+ cd /usr/src/packages/BUILD
+ rm -rf gimp-lch-selector-0.3
+ /usr/bin/gzip -dc /usr/src/packages/SOURCES/gimp-lch-selector-0.3.tar.gz
+ /bin/tar -xf -
+ '[' 0 -ne 0 ']'
+ cd gimp-lch-selector-0.3
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.fEh2ze: line 29: cd: gimp-lch-selector-0.3: No such file
or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.fEh2ze (%prep)

%setup assumes that tar xf <you source file> will create the folder
%{name}-%{version}, which apparently is not what is packaged inside your tarball
(this can happen).

You have two choices:
use %setup -n <the real folder name>
or repackage the tarball with the folder name adjusted. (first option is
obviously easier).

Hope this helps you get on track here,
