Description Yaakov Selkowitz 2018-11-19 07:27:51 UTC
Description of problem:
The %meson macro included in the EPEL meson package references %_vpath_srcdir and %_vpath_builddir, but those macros are not defined in RHEL.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  mock build a package using the %meson macro.

Actual results:
FTBFS, error message indicates that meson.build cannot be found in either directory.

Expected results:
Package builds.

Additional info:
The included macros should be changed along the lines of:

-        %{_vpath_srcdir} %{_vpath_builddir} \\\
+        . %{_target_platform} \\\

Comment 1 Igor Raits 2018-11-19 08:02:20 UTC
That is problem of RHEL, not EPEL. Actually epel-rpm-macros contain those definitions.

Comment 2 Yaakov Selkowitz 2018-11-19 08:05:45 UTC
Then EPEL meson should Requires: epel-rpm-macros.

Comment 3 Igor Raits 2018-11-19 08:11:19 UTC
No. You can provide those macros in your own foo-rpm-config.

No packages should ever require redhat-rpm-config or epel-rpm-macros. It is automatically installed in the buildroot. If you are using RHEL buildroot, you shouldn't be using EPEL repo. Or if you want to use EPEL packages, you should get epel buildroot.
