Description of problem:
While trying to build a development version of ghostscript (required by another package):
# rpmbuild --rebuild http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/SRPMS/ghostscript-8.15.1-3.1.src.rpm
rpmbuild: rpmio.c:2863: Fdopen: Assertion `fd && fd->magic == 0x04463138' failed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: as above
Expected Results: shouldn't have died with assertion failure
So do this instead
rpm -ivh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/development/SRPMS/
rpmbuild -bb /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/ghostscript.spec
So, because there happens to be a workaround, the fact that rpmbuild fails an
internal assertion isn't a bug ???
Yes, you have a workaround, use that instead.
Deferred until whenever (if that floats your boat instead).
