Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 169587
rpm writes error messages to the name of a file in SPECS, instead of stderr
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:14 EST
Description of problem:
Previously reported as Bug#8527 in January 2001. Now closed because
that version of rpm is "older, no longer supported" ??
Problem still exists in latest version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpmbuild -ta xxx (where xxx does not exists)
tar: *.spec: Not found in archive
Error messages to stderr.
No junk files in SPECS/
Yep. I keep this bug around to vet my rpm hackers. You have just joined
an elite membership of perhaps 10 or so hackers who have reported.
There is an intractable chicken <-> egg problem that cannot be easily
solved to fix, so the eventual fix will be to remove -ta modes from rpmbuild.
Meanwhile, I keep the bug around ...
