Subject: Re: SRPM tries to build the RPM?

It has to install the SRPM in a temporary environment to apply patches,
and so on so that it can give an accurate representation of the files in
the SRPM carries. Is this what you mean?

It also invokes make on the code when you have selected the files and
begin the import. This is is because Eclipse sees that is has a C nature
and tries too build it. If you would like to post the logfile it
produces (it would give you the name in the error dialog) we can take a
look and see what is happening.
