Description Orion Poplawski 2004-05-25 11:02:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113

Description of problem:
The man page for rpmbuild suggests that --quiet will suppress all
output except for errors.  It does nothing.  This option would be very
useful for use in automated builds where you want to capture true
error output, but not the "set -x" debug output from the build scripts.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --quiet <specfile>

Actual Results:  $ rpmbuild --quiet -bb yum.spec
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.1472
+ umask 022
+ cd /export/cynosure/orion/redhat/yum-2.0.7
+ export LANG
+ unset DISPLAY

Expected Results:  $ rpmbuild --quiet -bb yum.spec

Could this be related to the liberal amount of :

rpmSetVerbosity(RPMMESS_NORMAL);	/* XXX silly use by showrc */

shouldn't it at least restore the previous value ?

Reassigning to owner after bugzilla made a mess, sorry about the noise...

FWIW this has (finally) been fixed upstream so F8 and later will inherit it
sooner or later, FC5 is long since EOL'd so updating version.
