Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 17773
rpm -bb fails with uncompressed man pages
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
RPM version 3.0.5
redhat linux 6.2 with all official updates on i386.
when building packages from src.rpm which contain uncompressed man pages,
> rpm -bb specfile
fails, because the man pages are gzipped in the brp-compress stage and
afterwards the uncompressed man page is naturally not found any longer.
The package building stops there.
workaround is to skip brp-compress
RH62, all updates. 6 machines same problem. Rpm --rebuild package.src.rpm fails
since the upgrade to 3.0.5. I described this problem under bug#17497 as I
thought it had something to do with binutils. There is an example log on my
website. (See bug#17497)
