Description Jaroslav Škarvada 2013-10-10 10:07:40 EDT
Description of problem:
In the "Verifying the %files section" chapter of the RPM guide [1], there is written "symlink", but it seems RPM uses "link" instead.

Also I had trouble with the "maj" and "min", I guess there is "rdev" used instead.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See the "Verifying the %files section" chapter

Actual results:
There are symlink, maj and min

Expected results:
The link and probably rdev

Comment 1 Jaroslav Škarvada 2013-10-10 10:09:33 EDT
By looking on the RPM sources it seems there are also:
%verify(filedigest) and %verify(caps)
Comment 2 Petr Kovar 2017-12-14 05:25:44 EST
The RPM Guide has been deprecated in favor of https://rpm-packaging-guide.github.io/.

Closing the issue here.
