Description Sven Heyll 2014-12-19 20:24:45 UTC
Description of problem:

'repo-add' is completely broken. It rejects every package:

==> ERROR: 'mypkg-1.0.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz' is not a package file, skipping

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

How reproducible:

Steps(Shellscript) to Reproduce:


set -xe

# yum install pacman wget
# yum remove bsdtar

wget https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/check/download/ -O check.pkg.tar.xz

testpkg check.pkg.tar.xz

repo-add test.db.tar.gz check.pkg.tar.xz

# ===================================================

Actual results:
==> ERROR: 'check.pkg.tar.xz' is not a package file, skipping
==> No packages modified, nothing to do.

Expected results:
==> Adding package 'check.pkg.tar.xz'
  -> Computing checksums...
  -> Creating 'desc' db entry...
  -> Creating 'depends' db entry...
==> Creating updated database file 'test.db.tar.gz'

Workaround: Install 'bsdtar'
