rpm transactions error due to fuse mounts
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
Whenever I perform an rpm transaction on my computer, through yum or with rpm
directly, I get at least one error message of the kind;
error: failed to stat /home/daniel/public_html: Permission denied
as is to be expected, with the transaction being run by root and the mount
performed by my user (daniel).
As far as I can tell it doesn't cause any actual failure, i.e. the transaction
proceeds as it normally would, but from reading the code I suspect disk space
calculations aren't performed, and the error messages are starting to fill up my
cron job email (nightly yum).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install fuse-sshfs
2. gpasswd -a <user> fuse
3. su - <user>
4. mkdir ~/test
5. sshfs <user>@<host>:<path> ~/test
7. <perform rpm or yum transaction>
error: failed to stat /home/daniel/test: Permission denied
No error messages.
The attached patch is my half-hearted attempt at fixing it. I imagine it has
unwanted side-effects I did not consider though.

Crude hack that fixes it for me
Yah, the crude hack looks like the right thing to do. rpm-4.4.8 is already skipping ESTALE errno's
(common with clearcase, sigh), so my patch is slightly different than yours.
Fixed in rpm cvs, should be in 4.4.8-0.9 when built. Thanks for the patch.

Upstream at rpm.org too...
Fixed in next rawhide push. F7 will inherit the fix eventually, FC6 probably not
(as EOL is closing in) but not impossible.
