Description Sami Farin 2000-06-22 14:47:49 EDT
fileutils-4.0s does not build OK:

+ strip ./usr/bin/dir ./usr/bin/dircolors ./usr/bin/du ./usr/bin/install
./usr/bin/mkfifo ./usr/bin/shred ./usr/bin/vdir
+ gzip -9nf './usr/share/info/fileutils*'
gzip: ./usr/share/info/fileutils*: No such file or directory
+ exit 0
Processing files: fileutils-4.0s-2
File not found by glob: /var/tmp/fileutils-root/usr/etc/*
Executing(%doc): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.23789
+ umask 022

here fix for .spec file:

--- fileutils.spec~   Thu Jun  1 10:08:05 2000

   install -c -m 644 %SOURCE1 ./etc

but... where does that usr/etc/* come from?
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-06-22 17:37:02 EDT
You are building using a version of rpm without the rpm configuration that is
being used for Red Hat 7.0. Try upgrading to rpm-3.0.5 located at
and reopen this bug if that doesn't solve your problem.
Comment 2 Sami Farin 2000-06-23 22:20:33 EDT
I used rpm-3.0.5-0.3 but I get the same error with rpm-3.0.5-0.5, too.
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-06-24 09:01:25 EDT
The spec file was using a hardcoded %{_prefix}/share/info instead of
%{_infodir}, fixed in 4.0u-2. (7.0 will use /usr/share/info because of new FHS
requirements; so replacing it with %{_prefix}/info the way you suggested is not
the right way to fix it.)
