Hi Denis,

Thanks for the information. I installed the RPMs on my machine and then selected them in the "Installed Packages" tab in AppChecker. This has resolved the RPM checks errors. Earlier I was selecting the RPMs from "Files and Directories" tab in AppChecker without actually installing them.

the errors you see concern not the application itself, but rpm package format. It seems that you've created rpm which doesn't meet LSB requirements for RPM (http://refspecs.linux-foundation.org/LSB_4.0.0/LSB-Core-generic/LSB-Core-generic/packagefmt.html).

I would recommend to get a look at the following article:

In particular, you can try makelsbpkg script, described here:

As for particular errors:

RPM header check failed       Failures 36

Messages from the test:

checkRpmArchive: magic isn't expected value 0x1f8b, found 425a instead

Probably archive format inside rpm is not cpio - this can be the case for latest rpm version. LSB-compliant packages should use cpio.

RPM tags check failed         Failures 52

Messages from the test:

Incorrect RPMTAG_ARCH: expecting i486 or noarch but found i686

LSB RPMs should be built for i486 arch - for example, you should set the following field in the spec file:
BuildArch: i386

RPM dependencies check failed Failures 712

Messages from the test:

Unexpected dependency /bin/bash

LSB-compliant RPMs should only depend on 'lsb', no other dependencies are allowed.

RPM archive check failed      Failures 36

Messages from the test:

Invalid RPMTAG_PAYLOADCOMPRESSOR: expecting gzip but found bzip2

You should use gzip compression.
