Description Oleg Makarenko 2000-08-24 07:26:20 UTC
I activly use the following code in spec files:

%define test1 0
%define test2 0

%if %{test1}
%if %{test2}

That works ok with rpm 3.0.4-0.48 but fails with 3.0.5-9.6x. The error
message is:
parse error in expression
(spec file name):(%if %{test1} line number): parseExpressionBoolean returns

The same script works fine if test1 == 1...

I encountered the same bug when I tried to rebuild
kernel 2.2.16-3 from updates by rpm 3.0.5-9.6x.
It worked fine with 3.0.4-0.48
