Description Zing 2005-09-19 15:04:52 EDT
Description of problem:

At some point an "@`hostname -s`" was added to the kernel-2.6.spec.  Some of my
build scripts fail because i have dashes on certain hosts and this error is

$ rpm --qf '%{N}\n' -q --specfile kernel-2.6.spec
error: line 148: Illegal char '-' in release: Release: 1.1376_FC3.zing@woot-gw
error: query of specfile kernel-2.6.spec failed, can't parse

I guess this is more of a wishlist than anything.  I'm not sure of the
repercussions of the dash, but rpm doesn't seem to like it and I change the
release names locally here anyway.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. verify hostname has a dash in it. ex. "server-gw"
1. install a recent kernel srpm
2. run "rpm --qf '%{N}\n' -q --specfile kernel-2.6.spec"
Actual results:
get error about illegal char '-' in release

Expected results:
no error
