Description Lamont Peterson 2005-04-03 01:55:55 EST
Description of problem: 
When trying to build a package where the pristine source tarball contains a 
single top-level directory whose name does not exactly match 
%{name}-%{version}, it is necessary to use specify: 
%setup -n [correct directory name] 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
rpmbuild 4.3.2 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.  Create a SPEC file to use a source tarball where the name of the directory 
inside the tarball is not %{name}-%{version}, using the -n switch to the 
%setup macro 
2.  Run "rpmbuild -ba some.spec" 
3.  When rpmbuild tries to run "make [lotsa-dir-options] install", it fails 
because it is in the %{_builddir} directory 
Actual results: 
Failed build 
Expected results: 
Packages should be built 
Additional info: 
I have tested this on both i386 (Athlon-XP, Pentium 4) and x86_64 (2x Opteron 
242), same problem.  I have only tested this with one SPEC file.
Comment 1 Lamont Peterson 2005-04-03 11:29:27 EDT
This morning, I found a small typo in the SPEC file responsible for this   
"bug".  That's what I get for trying to file a bug so late at night.  
Just in case, I also tried a simple test case SPEC file; it works fine.  So, 
please close this one out.  Thanks.
