Reassigning to correct owner, kernel-maint.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2006-09-16 23:30:14 EDT
Fixed in cvs, will be in next rawhide.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2006-09-17 11:40:49 EDT
Adding %ghost /boot/initrd-%{KVERREL}.img to the %files sections caused build
errors (Can't find file -- which is understandable, as it's not there during the
build process, it gets created at %install time).

How should this be fixed?
Comment 4 Thomas Woerner 2006-09-18 08:00:47 EDT
I'd suggest this here:

%ghost %config(missingok) %verify(not size md5 mtime) /boot/initrd-%{KVERREL}.img

I have noticed that the kernel images are mode "-rw-r--r--", but the initrd
images are "-rw-------". This is strange.

Maybe changing the mode for all to "-rw-------" or "-rw-r--r--"?
Comment 5 Thomas Woerner 2006-09-18 08:09:41 EDT
Just touch the ghost file in install, it will not get appended to the rpm.
Comment 7 Jarod Wilson 2006-09-22 09:46:28 EDT
This does the trick for me. Since initrd's are created and destroyed in 
scriptlets, I don't think marking them as %config is worthwhile, not sure about

# rpm -qf /boot/initrd-2.6.18-1.2686.fc6.img

Changes to make initrd images owned by kernel rpms committed, should show up in
a rawhide sometime soon.
