It appears to segfault at creating files/directries within rpm

Only a problem with fC2 test1
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2004-03-22 13:36:01 EST
This is a mkdir, not rpm, segfault.

Almost certainly specific to your machine as well.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2004-03-23 05:36:53 EST
Any ideas how to debug this?
Also standard make install works
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2004-04-19 07:36:55 EDT
Upgraded to test2, and problem still exists.

I have now upgraded three machines to test2 and all three have the
problem (with or without selinux).
Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2004-04-22 02:48:29 EDT
Sure. The problem needs to be simplified to a context smaller than an
epiphany build, and than whatever is failing needs to be fixed.

Apologies if that isn't helpful.

Use with this options:
checkinstall --fstrans=no --install=yes
