Description Beth Nackashi 2006-02-06 15:55:06 EST
Description of problem:
The TPS rpm --verify tests fail because the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/rhn-applet config
file will always be different from default.  Why?  Because the uuid field gets
populated during the installation process.  The spec file needs to be flagged
with approriate %verify bits so it passes this test.

To test this:
1- copy the source rpm onto the client
2- rpm2cpio rhn-applet-x.x.xx-4.src.rpm |cpio -i -d
3- open applet.spec
4- look for %verify

Should be fixed in CVS now.

Testing notes - see comment #1
Comment 5 Beth Nackashi 2006-05-12 12:43:39 EDT
Verified fix on i386, ia64, x86_64, s390, and ppc64.  I suppose that was
overkill, considering it's a source RPM, but hey.  I had access to the hardware
and decided to take advantage.
