Description Robert Scheck 2006-06-29 15:14:10 EDT
Description of problem:
createrepo creates arch="i386" for src.rpm files. At least the following (taken 
from filelists.xml.gz) created by createrepo looks very broken to me:

<package pkgid="c3442e30a9ca21f9875809d4891e4d4dbc7dcada" name="tk" 
arch="i386"><version epoch="0" ver="8.4.13" rel="1"/><file>tk-8.3.5-tclm4-

Ever tried to upgrade from i386.rpm to a src.rpm? :)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, just run createrepo when you've got src.rpms and i386.rpms within a 
(sub-)directory accessed by createrepo. After removing src.rpms and re-executing 
of createrepo the repodata stuff seems to be correct.

Actual results:
createrepo creates broken repodata.

Expected results:
Working repodata again - even when src.rpm and i386.rpm files are in the same 
Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2006-06-29 17:31:46 EDT
Technically the src.rpm has RPMTAG_ARCH set - try it:

rpm -qp --qf '%{arch}\n' dummy-1.0-1.src.rpm

This is why the convention has been to keep src.rpm repos seperate for fedora. 
The way to identify a src.rpm is the absence of sourcerpm filed.

rpm -qp --qf '%{sourcerpm}\n' dummy-1.0-1.src.rpm

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2006-06-29 17:34:43 EDT
But the stuff worked with older versions of createrepo...
Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2006-06-29 21:33:28 EDT
If you let me know which version we regress from I'll look into. Particularly
with xml fragment, etc.

Proposed patch

Hmm are you using rpm >= 4.4.6? If so see CHANGES for why this broke - attached
createrepo patch will work around.  Please in future if you are using
non-standard core packages mention this in the bug report.

Please test this and I'll commit upstream (it looks logically correct to me).
Comment 5 Robert Scheck 2006-06-30 04:47:42 EDT
Oops...yes I am - sorry. And yes your patch works, of course and looks sane, 
too. Thank you very much for resolving it anyway :)
Comment 6 Paul Nasrat 2006-06-30 08:45:48 EDT
Commited to upstream createrepo.
