Description Robert Scheck 2004-08-03 00:05:15 UTC
Description of problem:
Rebuilding of sed will always fail, if the LANG environment 
variable isn't set to "C".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, see below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. export LANG=de_DE@euro
2. rpmbuild -ba sed.spec
3. Die with an error at "make check" (1 test is not passed)
   Well, the reason is, that there a sed output is compared,
   and a German and a English localized output aren't the
   same *hmpf*
Actual results:
Here's a diff from what is working for me:

Expected results:
Use of the suggested changes ;-)

Additional info:
BTW, glibc 2.3.2-27 is even much enough, we don't need to require 
2.3.3-27, I tested rebuilding of sed against glibc of Red Hat 
Linux 9 - and it works fine. Maybe we should request the build 
arch i686 of glibc, because rebuilding against a i386 glibc will 
always fail. The strange requirement to a very recent glibc was 
(wrongly) introduced after bug #123043 and corrected by me soon, 
but still ignored - please fix this also :-(

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-08 11:25:14 UTC
The LANG problem fixed differently (and submitted upstream)
in 4.1.2-4.
I'm not going to change the requirements on glibc (in fact I have
added even a Requires as well), as there were too many regex bugs
in earlier glibc releases.
For those glibcs you should probably remove --without-included-regex,
but the Fedora rpms really want to use it.

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2004-10-09 14:26:55 UTC
I still have to comment your part about the glibc requirement: I'm 
able to rebuild 4.1.2-4 against a glibc (2.3.2-11.9) out of Red Hat 
Linux 9 for example (and everything is working without restrictions), 
so I think the requirement to such a new glibc is just foobar...if 
you think you need to require a actual glibc, 2.3.2-27 (not 2.3.3-27!) 
is absolutely more than enough...

Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-09 14:43:19 UTC
If you look at glibc ChangeLog between 2.3.2-27.* and 2.3.3-27, there
were more than 100 separate changes to regex code, many of them fixing
really serious bugs.
