Description David Timms 2006-09-13 13:54:45 UTC
Description of problem:
Install a src.rpm
rpm script complains that user and group mockbuild don't exist.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
mock                    i386       0.6.4-1.fc6      extras-development 
  {fc6t2+2006-09-13 devel}

How reproducible:
install of both the gkrellm and dia src generate these messages.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/development/SRPMS/dia-0.95-7.fc6.src.rpm
2. rpm -Uvh dia-0.95-7.fc6.src.rpm
  
Actual results:
   1:dia                warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root
warning: group mockbuild does not exist - using root

warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root
warning: group mockbuild does not exist - using root

Expected results:
########################################### [100%]  :)

Additional info:
src rpm install of the same package in FC5 just showed the expected result.
If mock package install created this user and group, then the above would just
work. (It would also save having to chown the files {away from root} after
installing the .src.rpm)
- or maybe this is not the "best practice" way to go about it ?

Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2006-09-13 14:13:04 UTC
This is expected result.  The package files will get the ownership of whomever
built the package, in mock's case mockbuild.  The warnings are benign and should
be ignored.
