Description Tomas Smetana 2009-08-27 11:03:26 UTC
Description of problem:
The RHEL-4 ksh-debuginfo package is empty (and therefore useless).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ksh-20050202-0.5E.4

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qlp ksh-debuginfo-20050202-0.5E.4.i386.rpm

Actual results:
(contains no files)

Expected results:
Lots of files from /usr/src/debug/...

Additional info:
This is caused by the error in the spec file. It contains the following line in the %install section:

install -c -s -m 755 arch/*/bin/ksh $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/bin/ksh

Note the "-s" install option -- it strips the symbols from the binary... It must be removed.

Comment 1 Tomas Smetana 2009-08-27 11:51:23 UTC
It's even worse than that:  the CCFLAGS are ignored while building the package, so we need to export the CCFLAGS="-O2 -ggdb" first and then call the "package" utility.  Similarly as in RHEL-5 or Fedora...
