Description Ralf Corsepius 2006-10-07 01:03:05 EDT
Description of problem:

# rpmlint -a
[.. very long report ..]
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/rpmlint/rpmlint.py", line 268, in ?
    main()
  File "/usr/share/rpmlint/rpmlint.py", line 124, in main
    runChecks(pkg)
  File "/usr/share/rpmlint/rpmlint.py", line 149, in runChecks
    c.check(pkg)
  File "/usr/share/rpmlint/BinariesCheck.py", line 140, in check
    res=srcname_regex.search(pkg[rpm.RPMTAG_SOURCERPM])
TypeError: expected string or buffer

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpmlint-0.78-1.fc5

How reproducible:
ATM, I can reproduce it deterministically on two machines, but I don't have any
idea if this related to a particular installed rpm, or a general bug in rpmlint
or python.
Comment 1 Ville Skyttä 2006-10-09 13:32:10 EDT
The backtrace the same as in bug 209889 - I'm pretty sure that this is the 
same issue.  Marking as a dupe of bug 209889 because it has a reproducer, more 
info there shortly.
