Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2004-10-15 16:50:19 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

Description of problem:
I'm told that jbj is aware of this problem but I couldn't find a
report in bugzilla so I'm filing it here as a reminder. 
Unfortunately, globbing works on my test machine and breaks in a
beehive buildroot (same rpm version 4.2.2, test machine kernel:
2.4.21-15.ELsmp buildroot kernel: 2.4.21-14.ELsmp) so I don't have
reproduction details.  I'm banking on Jeff knowing the details.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. build a package that attempts to glob broken symlinks

Actual Results:  Error message:

File not found by glob:

Expected Results:  rpmbuild should glob the broken symlinks as symlinks.

No fix in rpm-4.2.2.

Try rpm-4.3.2-13 from fc3. That has internal glob.
