Description Sami Farin 2000-06-22 18:47:49 UTC
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
+++ fileutils.spec    Thu Jun 22 21:25:55 2000

   mkdir -p ./etc/profile.d
   install -c -m 644 %SOURCE1 ./etc

but... where does that usr/etc/* come from?

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-06-22 21:37:02 UTC
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 2000-06-24 02:20:33 UTC
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 13:01:25 UTC
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.)
