Description Thomas Svenson 2000-08-24 04:28:33 EDT
System: Dell Inspiron 3700

I installed RH 6.2, and then all the official updates for it. I also
compiled a new kernel (2.2.16) and the pcmcia pack (3.1.19), plus installed
a lilo from rawhide that has lba32 support.

Then I tried to rebuild som src.rpm packs. It failed in the end when the
binary rpm-pack was to be created.

The problem seems to be with the rpm updates (that is rpm itself) for 6.2.
When I made a fallback to the original 6.2 rpm I could rebuild the packs
again without any problems.

rpm-3.0.5 has the same default configuration for building that rpm-4.0 does.
	1) fix the (now legacy) package that you are building (recommended)
	2) use rpm-3.0.4 or earlier to build (easy)
	3) use rpm-3.0.4 macros with rpm-3.0.5) (will work, of questionable utility).
