Description David Lawrence 2001-05-18 18:18:46 UTC
Description of Problem: When building the rpm-4.0.3-0.6 source rpm on a 7.1 alpha RC1 machine I get 5 out 11 tests fail. rpm -Uvh rpm-4.0.3-0.6.src.rpm cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS rpmbuild -bc rpm.spec cd ../BUILD/rpm-4.0.3/ make check I have attached the output from the following make check command to this bug report.

Created attachment 18950 [details] Failed rpm make check of rpm source package
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-20 13:01:24 UTC
The make check in rpm is doing exactly what it's always done. Why do you care?
Comment 3 Preston Brown 2001-05-21 20:31:35 UTC
so let me get this straight: make check is known broken, right?
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-21 20:40:47 UTC
No it's not broken, it just doesn't do what you are expecting it too. It checks that headers are identical within known differences, that's not a very strong test of rpm functionality at all, and requires more than No output means it passes. to analyze. Look if you want me to write a "make check", I will do so. I've suggested exactly this several times, and been pointedly discouraged from doing so by both ewt and gafton.
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2001-05-23 19:27:17 UTC
Closing for now add a RFE: for "make check" if necessary/desired.
