Description Mike McLean 2005-11-15 12:36:16 EST
If you try to run buildinstall for our ppc product in a buildroot with
'ppc-redhat-linux' in /etc/rpm/platform, the operation fails because
buildinstall doesn't think that either of the kernels are valid (ppc64,

It seems entirely reasonable to have these contents in /etc/rpm/platform, yet it
breaks buildinstall. Perhaps buildinstall (or possibly rhpl) can be taught to be
more accomodating?

>>> hl = hdrlist.HeaderListFromFile(path_to_ppc_hdlist)
>>> hl['kernel']
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
line 422, in __getitem__
    raise KeyError, "No such package %s" %(item,)
KeyError: 'No such package kernel'

/etc/rpm/platform in buildroots causes other problems -- you won't be able to do
builds with --target properly either.
Comment 2 Dennis Gregorovic 2006-12-19 17:27:18 EST
Is this still an issue?
Comment 3 Mike McLean 2006-12-20 11:58:26 EST
I haven't hit this in a while.
