Description Andy Shevchenko 2006-07-31 05:41:06 EDT
Description of problem:
I should like to build my own rpm package from following source tarball: derived from 

But original name can't be used in rpm due to faults on decompress stage in 
section %setup.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Last FC5 official build.

How reproducible:
Try to write simple specfile with given URL as Source0.

Expected results:
The given name is possible at least in the *nix file systems.
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2006-08-05 04:07:39 EDT
Adding parentheses in file names is asking for trouble, as the parentheses
will need escaping everywhere that the file is used in scripts.

Rename the tar ball when packaging, leaving a comment describing what was done:

   # renamed from
    Source0: linux-r1000_103.zip
