Description Hans de Goede 2006-04-25 16:34:09 EDT
The automatic debuginfo generation done by rpmbuild fails hwhen some of the
sourcefiles which it tries to package actually are symlinks, in this case it
only packages the symlinks and not the files pointed too.

For example donwload:
http://home.zonnet.nl/jwrdegoede/gnucap-0.34-1.src.rpm (Fe package under review)

And build it, then run rpmlint on the -debuginfo rpm and enjoy all the dangling
symlinks errors.

Same here with rss-glx, see bug #188574.
Comment 2 Mamoru TASAKA 2006-05-29 12:02:52 EDT
For dealing with this problem, I always have to copy the real file of 
a symlink file and then remove all symlink file.
Comment 3 Panu Matilainen 2007-08-08 09:09:57 EDT
Should be fixed by Roland McGrath's new fancy find-debuginfo.sh in next rawhide
push, feel free to reopen if not...
