Description Ross M. 2003-12-19 11:29:12 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

Description of problem:
perl rpms install their lib data read-only. when the find-debuginfo.sh
script runs it tries to strip the files but can't leaving huge rpms in
many cases because of the debugging synbols. (found while developing
perl-Glib/perl-Gtk2, http://gtk2-perl.sourceforge.net/) the script's
call to eu-string prints an error message near the end of the build
process saying as much.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-build-4.2.1-0.30

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. building most any perl rpm seems to show this problem, perl-Glib.

possible fix

patch that fixes the problem by temporarily u+w and then u-w, only if
non-writeable.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2003-12-28 10:33:34 EST
Added in CVS, should be in rpm-4.2.2-0.8 and later.

Comment 4 Kenneth Porter 2004-06-28 19:57:20 EDT
brp-strip suffers from the same issue in rpm-4.3.1-0.3 issued with
Fedora Core 2. Found while building spamassassin-3.0-pre1, which uses
ExtUtils::Install to install ELF binary spamc mode 555:
