Post update (and build with)
*Section for openSUSE added
*Version 2.0.1 deleted
*An old section has deleted
*Pseudo new-spec file used (I don't use exactly the same which proposed by Anubis fedora and mandriva don't like get source from the web :/ )

For a unknown reason rpmbuild on fedora or mandriva don't get file from the web they look into /usr/src/
Perhaps a config error in ifconfig/iptable on my Ubuntu desktop (but I can visits with the) :crazy:

Hi Anubis,
I want to inform you that POL 2.5 and > do not need lynx so you can remove it from Depends:

I am currently uploading rpm package for Mandriva and Fedora

Plugin was installed in ~/.PlayOnLinux/plugins/ but don't build package in rpm forplugin, you must use the setup in PlayOnLinux Plugin installer ( in the option menu).
I an other release we probably add your plugin repository, but actually just use the download page from pol website.

For LZMA I have found this one for openSUse : it's need by wineversion tools.

don't worry.. yet fixed about LZMA,...anyway, remember that RPM is not able to install into ~.

For Plugin repository it should be on the playonlinux web site, and build by the team (with support for other person to add plugin) and probably other thing ...
For the moment if it's on the todo list, it's at the end
