Description Dano Carroll 2004-01-12 17:39:37 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.2.1)

Description of problem:
On HP-UX, patches in the spec file do not get applied. This is because
a call is made to the basename function on the pointer fn which holds
the full path to the patch. On HP-UX basename actually modifies fn,
reducing it to the basename. This causes the script produced to fail
to find the patch since the cwd is the build directory and the patch
is located in the source directory. 

The following patch copies the contents of fn (before the basename
call) to urlfn. In the line that makes the call to basename, urlfn is
used to provide the full path to the patch rather than the already
modified fn.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

    Steps to Reproduce:
1. Extract source from tar file
2. Apply patches from bugs 97662, 97887, 97907, 101717 113340
3. ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --without-python (I don't think the
matter, thought)
4. make
5. make install
6. rpmbuild -bp <anyspecwithpatches>

Actual Results:  Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/local/tmp/rpm-tmp.6716
+ umask 022
+ cd /data/packager/BUILD
+ cd /data/packager/BUILD
+ rm -rf cpan2rpm-2.018
+ /usr/local/bin/gzip -dc /data/packager/SOURCES/cpan2rpm-2.018.tar.gz
+ tar -xf -
+ [ 0 -ne 0 ]
+ cd cpan2rpm-2.018
+ echo Patch #1 (cpan2rpm.patch):
Patch #1 (cpan2rpm.patch):
+ patch -p1 -s
+ /var/local/tmp/rpm-tmp.6716[30]: cpan2rpm.patch: Cannot find or open
the file.
error: Bad exit status from /var/local/tmp/rpm-tmp.6716 (%prep)

Lines from /var/local/tmp/rpm-tmp.6716:

cd cpan2rpm-2.018
echo "Patch #1 (cpan2rpm.patch):"
patch -p1  -s < cpan2rpm.patch

Expected Results:  The last line of rpm-tmp.6716 should read:

patch -p1  -s < /data/packager/SOURCES/cpan2rpm.patch

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2004-01-16 13:22:29 EST
I'd rather use misc/basname.c than change the code just for
hpux. How about a configure test for fn modifying basname on
hpux instead?
