Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136613
createrepo does not include %ghost files in primary.xml.gz
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:50:24 EST
Description of problem:
Ghost files are not being included in primary.xml.gz even if they
matched the regex that lets files be in primary.xml.gz.
This breaks packages where nothing provides a file (not even a virtual
provide), but it is only listed in the file lists as a ghost and the
ghost is mapped in in %post via alternatives.
Things such as the jpackage compat gcj package (/usr/bin/jar) are
likely to be affected, along with Extras packages for pinentry
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Already fixed in 0.4.1
