Description Axel Thimm 2004-11-22 14:03:04 UTC
Description of problem:

rpm popt aliases with hyphens like

--with alsa-devices

become a space includimng macro like (from %dump)

 -8: _with_alsa -devices     --with-alsa-device

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


How reproducible:

Call rpmbuild with "--with alsa-devices"

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a plain specfile with %dump in its %prep
2.rpmbuild --with alsa-devices dummy.spec
3.Watch the macro definitions in the output
Actual results:

A macro called "_with_alsa devices" is created.

Expected results:

The macros should be called "with_alsa-devices"

Additional info:

Workaround by changing option names not to contain hyphens.

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2004-11-22 17:55:10 UTC
Don't use hyphens.

Comment 2 Axel Thimm 2004-11-22 18:07:42 UTC
Reopening, if you don't want to fix it, you should document it
somewhere (at the very least in /usr/share/doc/rpm-*/conditionalbuilds).

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2004-11-22 18:09:56 UTC
"Popt has other meanings for hyphens that cannot be ever
be changed. Don't use hyphens if attempting to use --with
or --without to pass build options into spec files."

Documented. Happy?
