don't remove leading ./ in rpmCleanPath (743 bytes, patch)

Description Cole Tuininga 2000-08-01 14:00:03 UTC
Performing an rpm -qf on a file will not work with relative paths:

[root@(removed) etc]# rpm -qf ./rc.d/init.d/lpd
file /rc.d/init.d/lpd: No such file or directory
[root@(removed) etc]# cd rc.d/init.d
[root@(removed) init.d]# rpm -qf ./lpd
file /lpd: No such file or directory
[root@(removed) init.d]# rpm -qf `pwd`/lpd

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2000-08-05 20:36:42 UTC
This is because rpmCleanPath is, in my opinion, a little overzealous about
stripping the path to files.  The attached patch will solve this problem, but
I'm not sure what other problems are caused by leaving a leading ./ on the files
opened by rpm.

don't remove leading ./ in rpmCleanPath

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2000-08-06 23:25:51 UTC
There are almost certainly "other problems". Deferred.

Comment 4 Jeff Johnson 2000-09-16 14:04:57 UTC
Time to find out what other problems there are. Applied in rpm-4.1 cvs, thanks
for the patchl.
