Description Matthew Miller 2007-04-08 02:35:57 UTC
Description of problem:

mktemp uses the TMPDIR environment variable. The brp-java-repack-jars script
resets TMPDIR to arbitrary values that don't necessarily exist, and then tries
to use mktemp. Failures ensue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to build, for example, a jpackage.org nosrc rpm
2. watch it not work.
3. there is no step three.
Actual results:

it fails with an error message about a temporary directory not existing.

Expected results:

it shouldn't be looking there anyway

Additional info:

replace all instances of TMPDIR in this script with something like JTMPDIR and
the problem is solved

Comment 1 Matthew Miller 2007-06-11 20:01:35 UTC
This is still a problem in current Fedora Rawhide (pre-f8, at this point), and
in RHEL5. It's an easy fix -- please make it.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-06-19 18:17:21 UTC
Push will be fixed for rawhide later today  

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2007-06-19 18:19:28 UTC
Thanks man. 

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2007-06-19 18:28:58 UTC
Also, this probably deserves to get put in an update for RHEL5 eventually.

Comment 5 Jon Masters 2007-06-19 18:51:59 UTC
Cloned as a RHEL5 bug.
