Read Me

libvpd:
-------
The libvpd package contains the classes that are used to access a vpd database
created by vpdupdate in the lsvpd package.

Source:
-------
http://linux-diag.sf.net/lsvpd.html

Mailing list:
-------------
linux-diag-devel@lists.sourceforge.net
Info/subscribe : https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/linux-diag-devel

License:
--------
See 'COPYING' file.

Compilation dependencies:
-------------------------
- C and C++ compiler (gcc, g++)
- GNU build tools (automake, autoconf, libtool, etc)
- sg3_utils-devel
- zlib-devel

Binary dependencies:
-------------
- sqlite3
- zlib

Note:
  - Package name may differ slightly between Linux distributors. Ex: RedHat and
    SLES ships development packages as "-devel" while Ubuntu ships it as "-dev"
    package. Please check your linux distribution package naming convention and
    make sure you have installed right packages.
  - For users of older RHEL and SLES versions
    slqite is not available in the default repositories for some of the older
    RHEL (<= 5.x?) and SLES (<= 10.x?) versions. If you want to run the new
    lsvpd/libvpd setup you need build sqlite version 3.0.0 or newer from
    source (available here: http://www.sqlite.org) or find an appropriate
    binary package for your architecture and software setup.

Building:
---------
You can build on Power Linux system.

$ ./bootstrap.sh
$ ./configure [--prefix=/usr/]
$ make
$ make install

Building rpms:
--------------
To build a tarball to feed to rpmbuild, do

$ make dist-gzip

As an example, we use a command similar to the following:

$ rpmbuild -ba [--target=ppc/ppc64] <path-to-spec-file>

Hacking:
--------
All patches should be sent to the mailing list with linux-kernel style
'Signed-Off-By'. The following git commands are your friends:
- git commit -s
- git format-patch

You probably want to read the linux Documentation/SubmittingPatches as
much of it applies to libvpd.

Submitting patch:
-----------------
We use same mailing list for all Power Linux VPD and diagnostics projects
(ppc64-diag, libvpd, lsvpd, [lib]servicelog). It is common convention to
prefix your subject line with project name. This lets maintainer and other
developers more easily identify patches from patches targeted to other
projects. For example,

  Subject: [libvpd PATCH 01/10] Summary phrase
