Hi Jolla,

I'm trying to install my new Xperia as my Jolla 1. Or at least as close as can be. A part of this are the Ambience I got with the other half and I still use. However they can't be installed on the Xperia due to a Arch conflict. The old ambiences have an armv7hl where all the newer ambiences have a noach tag. Can you update/release the other half ambiences with noarch?

Best regards, DDH

Here's one way to sort it while you wait for Jolla HQ to get on the case;

Install rpm-build; pkcon install rpm-build

Install rpmrebuild; pkcon install rpmrebuild

As a quick example, do this in terminal;

rpmrebuild -e ambience-the-first-one ~ the -e comment is so you can edit the SPEC file for the RPM. The following content in the spec file needs this change;

#OS:           LINUX
#SIZE:         8179278
#ARCHIVESIZE:   8181228
#ARCH:         armv7hl
BuildArch:     armv7hl     `<-----------------edit this to 'noarch' ** see NOTE`
Name:          ambience-the-first-one
Version:       0.0.3
Release:       10.5.1.jolla
License:       TBD
Group:         System/GUI/Other
Summary:       The First One ambience in your hand.
Distribution:  pj:store / latest_armv7hl

You should see an output like this; /home/nemo/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/ambience-the-first-one-0.0.3-10.5.1.jolla.noarch.rpm

**NOTE: The default editor for sailfish is VIM, when you hit enter on the above command, the spec file is opened in VIM.(here's a cheat sheet for VIM if you are not familiar ~ ).

Hope this helps.......
