Description Jon Masters 2007-06-19 14:51:21 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #235614 +++

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

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.

Push will be fixed for rawhide later today

Thanks man.

Also, this probably deserves to get put in an update for RHEL5 eventually.
