Description James Antill 2004-08-26 17:00:37 EDT
Description of problem:
% sudo rpmbuild -bp --nodeps --force
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.2094
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf control-center-
+ tar -xf /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/control-center-
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
% sudo rpmbuild -bp --nodeps /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/control-center.spec
Executing(%prep): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.64274
+ umask 022
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD
+ rm -rf control-center-
+ /usr/bin/bzip2 -dc
+ tar -xf -

...so specifying --force changes whether bzip2 is performed.

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


How reproducible:

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2004-08-26 20:15:08 EDT
Perhaps. Removing --force as rpmbuild option will be the fix
somewhen, as it does not do anything useful or important.

You can easily achieve that "fix" right now by
not using --force ;-)
Comment 2 James Antill 2004-08-26 22:36:29 EDT
 I always loved your comments Jeff :)

 But, although I hesitate to admit it, removing --force would probably
fix this for me ... because I always assume --force does what --nodeps
does, it doesn't work and so then I add --nodeps ... so if it didn't
exist I'd have changed it instead :) :).

 Anyway, yeh I stopped doing what hurt doctor :) ... feel free to
close, if you want.
