Description Michael Schröder 2003-09-05 16:58:22 EDT
check-files gets a list of files to check via a pipe to stdin. if
no buildroot is set the current implementation just does exit 1, which
may lead to a broken pipe signal as the input doesn't get discarded.

Fix: cat filelist to /dev/null in that case.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2003-09-07 13:50:48 EDT
Right fix is to make BuildRoot: mandatory and phase out of
spec files. There are important reasosn for always building
with BuildRoot: everything else is hysterical legacy.

BTW, thanks very much for the patches, it's very, very helpful
in identifying rpm problems and getting a fix in place even if we
disagree on details. I want these rpm bits fixed no matter what.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2003-12-27 12:59:46 EST
Added to CVS, should be in rpm-4.2.2-0.8 and later.

Thanks for patch.
