Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207239
rpmbuild -ta broken by recent tar
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:43 EST
Description of problem:
rpmbuild -ta has stopped working, since tar-22.214.171.124.FC5. Downgrading to
tar-1.15.90-2.FC5 fixes the problem. The more recent tar whines about
rpmbuild execing it with the *.spec argument, and the message confuses
rpmbuild. See the attached summarized strace output.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm-build-126.96.36.199.2 (meta-buglet: bugzilla does not list rpm-build in the
rpmbuild -ta <known-working-tarball>
error: Name field must be present in package: (main package)
.rpm built as usual.

Looks like a duplicate of bug #206841.
Workaround for now is TAR_OPTIONS=--wildcards discussion is occuring on
rpm-devel list about the correct way to fix.
